Cookie Dough Coconut Butter

DSC_0030Oh my, these are amazing! Beware you might just be tempted to eat more than one. I LOVE cookie dough and for me these came out pretty darn close to the taste of a sugar cookie dough, but they are definitely a healthier option instead of eating a couple scoops of cookie dough.

Cookie Dough Coconut Butter

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw macadamia nuts
  • 1 cup coconut butter (you can either buy or make coconut butter, make sure if you are buying it you buy the coconut butter, not oil. See below for a recipe.)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoon pure vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions:

  1. In a food processor, mix the macadamia nuts for a couple minutes until it becomes smooth and buttery.
  2. Then add in the remaining ingredients and process until smooth.
  3. Scoop the mixture into a bowl and place in the fridge for about 5-10 minutes. You do not want the dough to completely harden or you will not be able to roll into balls. If it does harden too much, you can place it in a bowl of warm water to soften the dough.
  4. Scoop out the dough and roll into small mounts. Each mound should be about 1 tablespoon.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
  6. ENJOY!!!
