Are you ready to take your baking to the next level? Warm Coconut Cookies are a great way to start. They're delicious and healthier than store-bought cookies. Plus you get the added bonus of knowing you made these yourself!
Most of my recipes have short simple ingredient lists. Warm Coconut Cookies are an exception to the rule with about 10 ingredients, but most of these you already have in your kitchen or are easy to find in the store. So let's get baking and leave the butter in the fridge cause these cookies are butter free!
1. Preheat oven to 350 and get a baking sheet out
2. Get all your ingredients measured out and set aside
1. In a LARGE bowl, add flax seed and warm water
2. In a second bowl, add flour, salt and baking soda
3. Add coconut oil, brown sugar, and vanilla to LARGE bowl and mix until blended
4. Add the contents of the second bowl with the flour to the LARGE bowl and keep stirring. (If it gets too dry, add milk)
5. Slowly mix in oats and coconut shavings
6. Place spoonfuls of this mixture on baking sheet
7. Bake in oven about 8-10 minutes
8. Allow to cool then sprinkle with extra coconut shavings or chocolate if you're feeling naughty
Have you ever eaten home made cranberry sauce? If so, you likely don’t have fond memories of it- between the bitter berries and the consistency of the mystery sauce, most Americans overwhelming choose canned cranberry sauce.
We’re talking about cranberry sauce Linda! Who cares about ‘nutritional value’?
Everything you eat has a nutritional value, not just the good stuff, so why eat high fructose corn syrup when you can try this AMAZINGLY good cranberry sauce that isn’t covered in hard bitter berries or watery mystery goo.
It's so mouth watering and delicious that I bet you’ll never even go back to the canned goop again.
The mixture will look the same for the first 2 hours, then you should see the cranberries starting to split in two, or develop small cracks. When you see this, you know your sauce is done!
5. Turn off the slow cooker, remove the lid and fish out the cinnamon stick and orange halves.
6. Stir. Leave the lid off and allow the sauce to thicken (it WILL thicken!) for about 30 minutes.
