These cookies are a healthier version of the popular ones. They are super easy to make and only require 4 ingredients! Just dates, shredded coconut, almond butter, and melted chocolate. They are also no bake as well, only using a food processor. I love making these because they are so simple and easy, yet very delicious. Simply blend the ingredients together, press the mixture into circles, cut out the centers with a piping tip, and drizzle with melted chocolate. I recommend storing them in the fridge, as it allows the chocolate to harden and ensures that it will not melt. These cookies are a perfect healthy treat to make quickly, and I bet you will end up loving them!

  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup dates

In a food processor, blend together the coconut, dates, and almond butter. After around 30 seconds, a coarse mixture should form.
Transfer into a large bowl and press into circles. Using a smaller circle (for example a piping tip), press it into the center of each cookie to make their classic "ring" shapes.
