4-Ingredient Healthy Samoa Cookies

4-Ingredient Healthy Samoa Cookies


  • Author: Amy Lawson RD, LDN
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 24 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free

Description

Better than Girl Scout Samoas with just 4-ingredients! Plus, no added preservatives or artificial nonsense here!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups Unsweetened, Shredded Coconut
  • 2 cups Pitted Dates
  • 1/2 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F for toasting the coconut.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor add the dates and pulse for 10-20 seconds to break down the dates.
  3. Pour coconut onto a sheet tray with a silpat or parchment paper and place in the oven to toast for 3-5 minutes. (Take care to watch it as it will burn easily!) Remove from oven and allow to cook for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the toasted coconut to the dates in the food processor and pulse for 10-15 seconds. You will know the mixture is ready when it can be pinched together and stays together.
  5. Scoop out tablespoon size portions of the mixture and form into a round cookie shape, pressing it into shape with your fingers. Place onto your sheet tray with the silpat or parchment from toasting the coconut. Continue to form cookies with the remaining mixture.*To make authentic Girl Scout Samosas, take a toothpick or small spatula handle and make a hole in the center of each cookie. You may need to press and shape the cookies to retain their shape.
  6. Place the sheet tray into the freezer and freeze for 5 minutes to set the cookies shape.
  7. Meanwhile, place the chocolate chips and coconut oil into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 25 second intervals until the chocolate is fully melted, stirring in between each interval.
  8. Next, remove the cookies from the freezer. Dip the bottom of each cookie into the melted chocolate to coat the bottom and return to your silpat or parchment covered sheet tray. Repeat for all cookies. Then, using a spoon, drizzle the remaining chocolate over the cookies in a stripe pattern for the full Samoa look.
  9. Place the cookies back into the freezer for at least 10 minutes so that the chocolate will set. Remove from the freezer and carefully peel the cookies off your silpat or parchment. Enjoy!

Notes

Keep the Samoas in an air tight container in the refrigerator.

Mango Popsicles are made with whole fruit and whirl up easily in the food processor.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 cups Frozen Mango
  • 1 tbsp Lime Juice
  • 1/8 tsp Lime Zest
  • 1/4 cup Honey
