Quick and easy to whip up, these cookies recreate the classic oat filled no bake cookies of the past!
Toast the coconut in a clean, dry pan over medium heat (it will start to turn golden and smell heavenly!) Set aside.
In the bowl of the food processor, place the toasted coconut, oats (or leave out if you like a chewier rolled oat texture), pecans. sea salt. Pulse a few times to break up and turn into fine pieces/powder.
Now add your dates, and process to mix. No large chunks of date should be visible.
Gently melt or soften your chocolate chips in a glass measuring cup in the microwave, or in a pan on the stove. They do not need to 100% melted, just very soft so they can blend into the oat mixture..
Add melted chocolate and sunbutter into the food processor, and pulse to blend thoroughly. May add any of the healthy add ins now too if you choose.
Form into balls using a cookie scoop to keep your hands clean and place into refrigerator to harden. I use about a tablespoon per cookie.
