Paleo Cookies

These cookies are Paleo friendly! If you are not familiar with the Paleo lifestlye, it means that there is no dairy, grains, or soy in these cookies. They are soooo good! Originally I put the cookies in the oven for 15 min., but they came out very burnt! I would recommend putting them in for 10 min. and then checking them. They should be a light brown color.

  • 4 dates, pitted
  • 1 1/2 C. walnuts
  • 1/2 C. pecans
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 C. unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 C. dark chocolate chips

  1. Grind dates in a food processor until they are a paste (they will stick together into 1 big ball, that's ok)
  2. Add walnuts and pecans in food processor and blend until finely chopped
  3. Add baking soda and salt and pulse a few more times
  4. Warm coconut oil in a microwave until in a liquid form
  5. Pour coconut oil into food processor along with egg and vanilla and blend until egg is mixed in
  6. Scrape the mixture into a bowl and fold in shredded coconut and dark choco chips.
  7. Drop tbsp. size portions onto a baking sheet and slightly flatten with your thumb
  8. Bake 10-15 min. until cookies are slightly browned
