Healthy Raw Energy Cookies
Before I got married I knew I was going to be the best wife because I could make all these great desserts! Boy did I get a shock the day my husband said he would rather have a second helping of dinner than some dessert! Often times an entire pan of brownies would be wasted because I could only eat 1 or 2 and then no one would eat the rest! I realize his lack of a sweet tooth is a blessing to his waist line so I got over my disappointment quickly.
Can I just tell you how excited I am about these next cookies! My husband LOVES them!! I also let some of my in-laws taste these cookies and they said they taste almost like an almond joy!
Now don't look at the word "healthy" up there and dismiss this recipe. These cookies are soooooo good. They have so many health benefits: natural sources of protein, magnesium, omega 3's, iron, potassium, manganese, selenium and fiber to name a few. The almonds and coconut oil contain healthy monounsaturated fat which has been linked with the reduction of heart disease and is considered to be great for your overall health. I can't even list all the amazing benefits of coconut oil. Here read THIS. And the fact that it all is engulfed in chocolate?! It doesn't get any better than this folks. Our favorite way to eat them...to dip them in some organic peanut butter. YUM!!!
(PS- We sell 2 great Coconut oils! They are both organic, unrefined, and unfiltered. You can get them from our online store or in my husband's clinic.)

I store mine in the fridge in an airtight container. I'm not sure how long they'll last in the fridge cuz they didn't last!

Do you have a suggestion for an almond meal substitute? My daughter cannot have almonds. Thanks.

These are so awesomely good! I'm not into avoiding any particular foods and I eat a very varied, healthy diet with a few splurges - honest translation: I normally kinda turn up my nose at recipes that use words like "raw" and "energy" (full disclosure). But I had these at a friend's house and had to beg her for the recipe. They're like the perfect chocolate/coconut candy! and much more healthful than most alternatives. Definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing!
