Coconut + Toasted Pine Nut Cookies
I made up this recipe today because I was craving some really good coconut cookies. The toasted pine nuts adds a little Italian flare to them and a yummy crunchiness.
1 C Coconut Flour
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t sea salt
1/4 t xanthan gum
1 C shredded dried unsweetened coconut
3/4 C toasted pine nuts (4 oz)
1/2 C extra shredded coconut + 1 Tbsp raw cane sugar
3/4 C butter (12 Tbsp) *Melted*
1 1/4 t coconut extract
1/4 t lemon extract
1/2 t vanilla extract
3/4 C Agave Nectar-Dark
Mix all the dry ingredients together: coconut flour, baking soda, sea salt, xanthan gum, shredded coconut, pine nuts.
Mix all the wet ingredients in a separate bowl: melted butter, 2 eggs, coconut-lemon-vanilla extracts, agave nectar.
Mix the dry and wet ingredients together until a dough forms.
Mix the extra shredded coconut and raw cane sugar together. Roll dough into tablespoon sized balls, flatten and lightly coat in coconut +sugar.
Bake in the oven at 350 for 13-15 min until golden brown.
