Ingredients

  • 2 cups (250 grams) pitted dates (I use deglet noor dates)
  • 1 cup (60 grams) unsweetened coconut flakes, toasted (see notes #1)
  • ½ cup bittersweet (60% cacao) chocolate chips
  • ½ - 1 teaspoon coconut oil melted (optional)

Instructions

  • Place the dates and coconut in the work bowl of a food processor and process until the mixture resembles bread crumbs.
  • Using a ¾ ounce ice cream scoop for portioning, press the dough together firmly to form twelve 2-inch round discs. Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Poke holes in the center of each cookie using a chop stick. (Thread it through the center of each cookie starting with the pointed end.)
  • Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 10 minutes so the cookies firm up a bit.
  • Melt the chocolate over a water bath or in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring well after each 30 second interval. (See Notes #2.)
  • Dip the bottoms of the cookies into the melted chocolate and place them back on the baking sheet.
  • Drizzle the leftover chocolate on top of each cookie. (See Notes #3.)
  • Let the chocolate harden before serving.

Notes

1. To toast the coconut flakes spread them out evenly on a small baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees F for 2-4 minutes or until golden brown.
2. If the melted chocolate is very thick you can add up to 1 teaspoon of melted coconut oil to thin it out and make it easier to work with.
3. Use a fork or spoon to drizzle the chocolate over the cookies, or for a more controlled drizzle use a homemade piping bag made out of parchment paper.
