This recipe tastes so close to the real thing, you will feel like you’re eating them right out of the box! This coconut-y chocolate-y treat will fill those Girl Scout Cookie cravings without eating all the palm oil, chemicals, and artificial sweeteners that come along with it. This recipe is so simple and easy, it only takes a few minutes to make.
With only 3 healthy ingredients, these cookies are packed with healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. There is no sugar added in this recipe, instead these cookies rely on the natural sweetness of dates to create that rich caramel flavor and texture similar to Samoas.
Dates have so many healing properties. They are shown to lower cholesterol, improve bone health, and help with digestion! Dates can be replaced with sugar for many recipes, and will make healthier substitutes for sweeteners.
To make that girl scout cookie taste, use chocolate chips with a smaller percentage of cocoa. If you are like me and love dark chocolate, opt for using dark chocolate chips in this recipe.
If you do not have toasted coconut, it is simple to make yourself. In a medium skillet over medium heat, stir your coconut flakes until it turns slightly brown. This will take about 3-5 minutes and it will smell so fragrant!
- 1 Cup of Shredded Coconut (lightly toasted)
- 1 cup of pitted dates
- ¼ cup of melted chocolate chips
- 1 Tbsp of Coconut oil (optional)
