  • 1 1/2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut (PALEO)
  • 1 cup soft dates
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter
  • Unsweetened chocolate, melted (GRAIN FREE)


  1. Toast Coconut: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Spread the shredded coconut on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for about 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Keep a close eye to prevent burning.

  2. Prepare Cookie Dough: In a food processor, combine the toasted coconut, soft dates, and almond butter. Blend until the mixture forms a sticky batter.

  3. Shape Cookies: Using your hands, form the dough into desired cookie shapes. Use a chopstick or the back of a spoon to create a hole in the center of each cookie, resembling the classic Samoa cookie shape.

  4. Freeze and Dip: Place the shaped cookies in the freezer while you melt the unsweetened chocolate. Dip the bottom of each cookie into the melted chocolate, allowing any excess to drip off. Drizzle more chocolate over the tops of the cookies for an extra decadent touch.

  5. Final Freeze: Return the cookies to the freezer for about 2 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.
