No-Bake Coconut Delights (sugar, dairy, egg, and grain free)

These vegan coconut no-bake cookies come together super quick and are loaded with healthy ingredients. Plus they're paleo and sugar-free too!

Ingredients

Optional Toppings

Instructions

  1. Put all ingredients in a food processor or blender.
  2. Combine until the mixture is blended and sticks together. (Note: if you are using a high-powered blender like a Vitamix, do not turn your machine on high. You will likely end up with Coconut Butter. While it will be delicious, it won't be these no-bake cookies :-)!)
  3. Remove the mixture from the blender / food processor and form into desired shape. I really like the cute little shapes I was able to make with this little cookie scoop. I had a little trouble with the "balls" falling apart but just gently press them back into the desired shape.
  4. Decorate with shredded coconut, cocoa or carob powder, crushed nuts, or melted chocolate (I used my Homemade Chocolate / Carob Chips, piped from a plastic baggie with a tiny hole cut in the corner) as desired. Or leave them plain. They are great just as is (but I do think a little coconut sprinkled on top adds a nice touch.
  5. Leave to firm up on a plate. They will firm up at room temperature.
  6. You really don't need to store these in the fridge but I think they taste a tad bit better cold.

Recipe Notes

See this post on Stevia: What It Is and How to Use It for tips on using this super sweet, all-natural herb.

These mini stainless measuring scoops (see photo below) are what I use to measure stevia. I only needed one of the scoops, but they are reasonable so I was willing to buy the set. Stevias do vary in strength and volume so play around to see what you need.

The 2nd smallest scoop is 1/32 of a teaspoon (the standard “stevia scoop” size) and it fits nicely in my small stevia container.

These would be a wonderful addition to a cookie exchange or packaged prettily almost like truffles in a candy box.

I love homemade gifts at Christmastime like this one. They cost less than most store-bought gifts and foodie gifts are easier than most to give.
