No Bake! Coconut Carmel Cookies

Coconut Caramel Cookies
grain-free, gluten-free, egg-free, nut-free,
dairy-free, caffeine-free & sugar-free

~Paleo-, GAPS-, & SCD-friendly!~

Here's a simple and delicious recipe that is super easy to make. You don't even need to bake them! This recipe is sugar-free and is therefore appropriate for the REAL Food Challenge and Digestive Health with REAL Food protocol. It's also perfect for the Paleo, GAPS & SCD diets.

The addition of ghee (clarified butter) gives these "cookies" a natural caramel taste bringing a natural sweetness that pairs well with the taste of coconut. You can also add more seasonings like cinnamon, vanilla extract or unsweetened cocoa powder if you want. 
Here is what you will need:
  • 1/3 cup coconut butter
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 TBSP ghee (on amazon or make it yourself!)
Here's how to prepare your Coconut Caramel Cookies:
  1. Mix all the ingredients together. If the coconut butter is too hard, put the jar in a big bowl of hot water for a few minutes.
  2. Once mixed, press the cookie mixture into 12 silicone muffin tins.
  3. Put in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  4. Enjoy! 
Paleo-, GAPS- & SCD-friendly!
(Per one of the comments from this original sight: It's easy to make coconut butter at home if you have a Cuisinart - you can find recipes online, but it's simply coconut flakes (unsweetened) processed in the Cuisinart for about 10 minutes, until creamy. Store at room temp.)
