I wanted to make a "healthy" treat for my kids this last week- and this is what I came up with. My husband was eating Girl Scout cookies...YOU KNOW, the chocolate coconut one's that are to die for! So I wanted to make something that was chocolate and coconut and had some nutritional value.
Do these taste like the sinful girl scout cookies- NO. But they are super yummy and my kids love them! Especially when eaten out of the freezer.
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup Graham Crackers (broken into small pieces)
2 TBS ground Flax Seed
1/2 cup Coconut Flakes
1/2 cup - 3/4 cup Chocolate Chips (vegan preferably)
4 TBS Peanut Butter
4 TBS Almond Butter
1 TBS Coconut Oil
4 TBS Honey (or you can use Agave Nectar)
1 teaspoon Vanilla
Combine all the ingredients in a food processor* Pulse until all mixed together and forms a sticky dough like texture. Rolls into balls in your hand and place on cookie sheet in your freezer. I added extra coconut to the tops of some of them- because I love coconut...but this is optional.
*If your nut butters are cold and stiff, place them in a glass bowl along with the coconut oil and honey and microwave for 30 seconds...so it's creamy. This will help it all mix together nicely.
