Double Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Angie Carl

Deliciously dark and delightful! Try them with espresso coconut butter filling for a little pick-me-up!

 

INGREDIENTS

Cookies

  • 6 dates about 1/2 cup, packed

  • 1 1/2 cup almond meal or finely ground almonds

  • 1/4 cup dutch-process cocoa powder

  • 1/4 tsp salt

Frosting

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a food processor, add the dates and blend until a soft ball forms. Add the almond meal, cocoa, salt, and water. Process until all ingredients are combined, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed. When the mixture just comes together like a sticky ball it is ready.

  2. Place between two pieces of parchment paper and roll to about 1/8 in thickness. Using a cookie cutter, cut into circles and place in a parchment lined plate. Freeze 30 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, warm coconut butter in microwave in 15 second increments until it can be easily stirred and is the consistency of frosting. Be careful not to overheat because it will become too liquidy to pipe. If needed, put in the refrigerator for a few minutes to thicken to the right consistency. Pipe or spread on half of the coolies and cover with another cookie, creating a cookie sandwich.]

Coconut Butter Cups

Angie Carl

Tell your guilty conscience to back off!  These coconut butter cups are a favorite for parties and always disappear fast! Also small enough to hide....in a secret stash

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

  • 2 tsp coconut oil

  • 6 tsp Toasted Coconut coconut butter

  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

  • 1 Tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut or cacao nibs to garnish

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Combine chocolate chips with coconut oil and melt in a double boiler (or microwave in 20 second increments, stirring between each). Line a mini muffin pan with 6 liners.

  2. Pour a small about of the chocolate in each of the 6 mini muffin liners. Rotate and tilt the mini cups so that the chocolate coats the sides. Refrigerate for a few minutes to set.

  3. Spoon in about 1 tsp Roasty Toasty Coconut Butter on top. Sprinkle about 4 or 5 pieces of chopped nuts over each cup.

  4. Set again in refrigerator to harden coconut butter. After coconut butter has hardened, pour the rest of the chocolate on top to cover the coconut butter and the nuts.

  5. Sprinkle some unsweetened shredded coconut or cacao nibs on top of each cup. Let them sit in the refrigerator for about an hour. It is easier to peel the paper off once they are set.

  6. Store in the refrigerator until ready to eat. Enjoy!

 

Chocolate Dipped Banana Pops

Angie Carl

These frozen banana pops are a delicious treat with any flavor of coconut butter!

 

INGREDIENTS

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Peel and cut the banana crosswise in 4 equal pieces. Pierce each chunk with a pop stick and put them in the freezer for about 2 hrs.

  2. Melt coconut butter in microwave until liquidy (about 20 seconds) and pour in a tall glass.

  3. Holding each pop by the stick, submerge each frozen banana chunk in the melted coconut butter completely, letting a bit of the coconut butter go up the stick and dip the bottom of the banana pop in ground almonds or any other topping of your choice.

  4. Store pops in the freezer until ready to eat.

 

Chocolate Dipped Banana Bites

Angie Carl

Banana lollipop, double dipped. These are the perfect size for a small treat!

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 large banana sliced 1/2 in thick slices

  • 1/3 cup Almond Tart Cherry coconut butter warmed, or your favorite flavor

  • 1/4 cup Dark Chocolate coconut butter

  • 1 tsp coconut oil

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Insert a toothpick on the side of each banana slice and freeze for at least an hour on a parchment covered plate.

  2. Once completely frozen, warm coconut butters until liquefied and pour each in a tall glass for easy dipping.

  3. Submerge each banana slice completely in the Toasted Coconut coconut butter. The coldness of the banana will set the coconut butter in a few seconds (you'll know because it will turn from shiny to opaque).

  4. When it is set completely, dip half of the banana slice in the melted Dark Chocolate Coconut Butter, letting the excess drip. Put each banana slice back on the parchment paper lined plate and store in freezer until ready to eat.

Cafe con Leche y Coco

Bite-size Peanut Butter & Banana Bombe

Angie Carl

They're the bombe!  These dairy-free treats are super easy to make... and oh so delicious!!

 

INGREDIENTS

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Slice the banana into 1/4 inch thick coin-shaped rounds. Lay flat on parchment lined tray being careful not to overlap any pieces. Freeze for an hour or until frozen completely. In the meantime, chill peanut butter in refrigerator.

  2. When peanut butter is stiff enough to be molded, remove from refrigerator and form into teaspoon-size balls. Place each peanut butter ball on top of a banana coin and smooth the edges to create a dome. Return to freezer while you prepare the coconut butter.

  3. Melt coconut butter in a tall mug or glass using the microwave or stove top. Using a fork, completely submerse each dome in the coconut butter, shake the excess and allow it to solidify and form a hard coating. Dip again or as many times as desired until chocolate coating is somewhat thick and opaque. Serve immediately or store in the freezer.

 

 

Coconut Mounds with Almonds

Angie Carl

Mounds as delicious as the popular candy bar, but way better for you!

INGREDIENTS

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Thoroughly combine coconut butter and shredded coconut in a medium bowl. Form small mounds with the mixture (about a heaping teaspoon) and place on a parchment lined plate working quickly so the coconut butter does not melt with the heat of your hands.

  2. Place one almond on top of each mound, pressing down slightly. Freeze for an hour.

  3. Melt chocolate with the coconut oil in a double boiler (or in the microwave in 20 second increments, stirring between each).

  4. Hold the mounds (one at a time) above the chocolate bowl by laying it flat on a fork and with your other hand use a spoon to pour the melted chocolate over the mound to cover completely. The excess chocolate will drip down to the chocolate bowl through the tines.

  5. Place on a wire rack or parchment lined plate.

  6. Keep refrigerated. Let it sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes before serving.

Mint Patties

Angie Carl

The trio of flavors in these little gems is a match made in heaven. Even if you aren’t a big fan of the unhealthy version, you should give these mint patties a try.


INGREDIENTS

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Mix first 4 ingredients until well combined. Using a tablespoon, form mixture into patties. Place patties on a flat dish lined with parchment paper and freeze for about 30 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, warm the Dark Chocolate coconut butter in a microwave in 30 second increments until completely melted. Using a fork, dip each frozen patty in the melted coconut butter and tap a couple of times to get rid of the excess drips and let solidify. Repeat this process several times until coating is thick and opaque. Place the patties on a parchment-lined plate and set in the refrigerator for a few minutes to harden.
