One of my favorite combination in cookies is citrus and coconut. I love the smell, the taste and the freshness of these two ingredients mixing together.
The recipe I am sharing today is vegan, gluten, refined sugars, dairy, wheat free.
Citrus Coconut Cookies.
2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup ground almonds or almond flour
4 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
4 tbsp honey
zest of one lemon or orange
juice of one lemon or orange
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
a pinch of sea salt
pecans for sprinkling
Preheat the oven to 320 F, and line a baking tray with baking paper.
In a food processor, add all of the ingredients. Blend for 1-2 minutes, or until the mixture starts to mix together like a dough.
Use your hands to form small balls, and place apart on the baking trays. Press down on the balls lightly to flatten, and then sprinkle with the pecans or any other nuts.
Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until crispy and golden on the outside.
Leave to cool completely, and then enjoy!
