I got the idea for these cookies from Ingredients, Inc., but made several changes before we reached the perfect cookie (in our opinion!). The first ones were a bit too thin and runny, but after a couple of batches of changes we finally found ones that were worth making again and again. They are a great sweet treat that my kids and husband love.
1 1/2 c. dark chocolate chips (at least 70% cocao)
1 tbsp. coconut oil
1 tbsp. honey
1/2 c. almond butter
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 c. shredded, unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 c. raisins
1/2 c. nut of your choice (we used roasted, salted cashews)
-Combine the chocolate, coconut oil, honey and almond butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir often until completely melted.
-Remove chocolate mixture from heat and stir in cinnamon, coconut flakes, raisins and nuts.
-Drop by the spoonful onto a wax paper-lined cookie sheet.
-Place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator and allow cookies to harden.
-Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
