Mexican No-Bakes

Growing up I would place no-bakes in my top three of favorite cookies (nothing could touch grandma’s iced sugar cookies or sandies). Of course I wanted to adapt a recipe that I can eat now. I also wanted to please my developing tastes for a savory play on things and my love of spicy foods. Let’s make these cookies with a little kick then!

Mexican No-Bake Cookies

  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup sunbutter (or any other nut butter)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

 

Let’s Make it Happen: Melt honey, oil, and cocoa over medium heat. Remove from heat once it begins to boil, adding in the almond butter and vanilla. Lastly fold in coconut and cayenne before dropping onto a greased cookie sheet or onto parchment paper.
