No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Cookies

Looking for another way to get healthy coconut products into your diet? You must give these cookies a try. Dense, dark and chewy, these no-bake chocolate coconut cookies are packed with coconut oil and shredded coconut so they make a healthy and delicious addition to any meal or snack. This recipe is super simple to whip up, so you can be munching on these in no time!

A Couple Notes on Ingredients:

Shredded coconut: I highly recommend buying shredded coconut online. In my experience, buying it in bulk is WAY less expensive than buying small packages at the grocery store. (If your local store has a great bulk section, that may be an affordable option, too.) I usually buy this shredded coconut.

Cocoa powder: I always use raw cacao powder in my recipes, but any kind of cocoa powder will work, too. Like the shredded coconut, I highly recommend buying your cacao powder in bulk, if you go through a lot of it. I usually buy this cacao powder.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients except shredded coconut to a saucepan and gently melt until all ingredients are liquid, then use a whisk or fork to stir until all ingredients are evenly mixed.
  2. Add shredded coconut and mix to combine.
  3. Line a flat surface, such as a cutting board, with wax paper or parchment paper. Spoon cookies onto paper. You can make them smaller or larger depending on your preference. If cookies seem too liquid, allow mixture to cool a bit on the counter or in your fridge before trying to scoop them again.
  4. Place cookies in the freezer to harden. Once hardened, remove to a lidded container. Store container in the freezer or fridge, depending on your preference.

    This is great, hubby can’t eat starch and misses almond joys. I can see adding nuts and dried cherries or cranberries too. Xylitol or even coconut Palm sugar and a small amount of water would work well too if you wanted a low glycemic sugar vs honey.

    You can also substitute the cocunut for organic oats 🙂

    I made these last night!! So quick, easy and delish!! I actually added oatmeal to one batch instead of shredded coconut and they tasted just like a Girl Scout Samoa cookie!!! thanks for sharing!

    My 4 yr old daughter and I made these today and they are fantastic! Super easy and quick to make with minimal cleanup! My seven-year-old approved too! This is one to add to the list! Thanks for the recipe 🙂

  12. These are amazing. My only feedback would be to add a cooling period before spooning the cookies onto the parchment/wax paper. Mine must have been too hot so when I tried peeling them off the wax paper, a bunch of melted wax paper came with them!

  13. mmir says:

    I made them a little different..I just spread the entire mixture over parchment paper (made a rectangle more or less) and put it in the fridge like that…then removed and cut into little squares. Me and my little one love them!

  14. Lisa says:

    I can’t wait to make these as a Valentine’s Day treat for my hubby and me 🙂 These sound delicious!!!!

  15. Krista Foley says:

    These were super easy to make. Love that! The only thing is they were a bit thin and drippy – I even chilled the mixture in the fridge before putting on parchment paper.
    It made only 11 cookies for me – how much should it make?

    I love these coconut cookies, especially straight from the freezer! Already gobbled up my first batch and am hankering to make another with the increasing temps. Thanks, Meghan! 🙂

  19. Amy says:

    These are delicious! I made them as a treat when my daughter had a friend over who is dairy/nut free. I added rice krispies because I had them on hand and they added a little crunch. Second batch I added pecans and dried cranberries, we love them!

  20. Susannah says:

    I’ve been meaning to try these forever and we finally made them this morning.
    WOW!!! Delicious!

    Thanks for a great recipe!
