Coconut or Oatmeal Raw Thumb Print Cookies

A couple of years ago we made raw thumb print cookies. When we made them this week, we couldn't believe how "greasy" they were, so we reinvented the recipe. The fat is from whole food sources, almond butter and coconut flakes, without using the coconut oil. The soaked dates bring the needed moisture to the mix.

Thumb print cookies

Ingredients (Makes approximately 12 cookies)
  • 3/4 cup raw almond meal
  • 1/4 cup organic almond butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4-6 dates, soaked at least an hour to soften
  • 1 cup organic shredded coconut or 1 cup rolled oatmeal
  • pinch salt

    Cacao filling (this is our favorite cacao blend for cookies and candies)
  • ¼ cup raw cacao butter
  • 2 TBS cacao powder
  • 1 TBS lucuma powder 
  • ½ TBS maca powder
  • ½ TBS maple syrup
  • pinch salt
  1. Mix the coconut, almond meal and almond butter together in food processor
  2. Add vanilla, salt and dates in food processor
  3. Place rounded tablespoons of mixture out onto a plate and then press the center with your thumb or back of a spoon.
  4. Dehydrate until firm but not necessary
  5. Melt cacao butter in a pan with a little water; add maple syrup and remaining ingredients.
  6. Scoop cacao out with a spoon and place inside the thumbprint of each cookie.
  7. Cover and stick in the fridge or freeze for several hours.
  8. Enjoy!
