Sweet Treat Saturday: No Bake Cookies

These were inspired by my cheesecake crust. They are simple to make and are super tasty! Perfect for a hot day when you don't want the oven heating up the house.

Printable Recipe
1 tbs coconut
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/2 c almonds
12 dates
1 square of dark chocolate
1 tsp cinnamon

Process the dates in a blender or food processor and set aside. Add the almonds and dark chocolate to the empty blender and blend until finely chopped. Return the chopped dates to the blender, add in the rest of the ingredients and blend until well combined. Spread on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper, or form into balls and flatten into cookies. Freeze for at least 2 hours. I made mine in to bars, so I cut them when I removed them from the freezer. Store in an air-tight container in the freezer.

Nutrition Notes: These are meant to be a treat. The serving size should be 1 small bar. Dates are extremely high in sugar, so they should be limited if fat loss if your goal!
