No-Bake Lemon Coconut Cookies

Share it Please
This weekend I was in the mood for cookies. But, this Christmas season I'm trying to watch how much sugar I eat so I don't gain like 10 pounds this month. Better to limit the carbs now so I can gorge on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. ;)

Anyways, back to the cookies. These cookies are the perfect treat for days when you get that craving for something a little sweet. They won't spike your blood sugar and leave you with that icky feeling a couple hours later. In fact, because they're made almost entirely of coconut, these cookies could be considered healthy. A cookie you can have any time of the day and not feel guilty about

They're also super easy to make, which is a quality I'm always looking for in recipes. If a recipe looks too complicated, it's highly likely that I won't try it. Not that I'm intimidated by it, I just don't have the time. I'm sure plenty of you have the same dilemma, especially this time of year. Good thing I've created this quick, yummy recipe for you to take on the go. ;)

Be warned, though. This is a very coconut-y cookie. So, if you don't like coconut, I would recommend trying a different recipe. But, who doesn't like coconut? ;)

1 c. shredded coconut 
3 T. coconut flour
1/4 c. coconut oil, melted
1/4 c. + 2 T. coconut milk, light or full-fat
1 1/2 T. lemon juice 
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract 
3 T. honey, maple syrup, or agave 
Pinch salt
1 tsp. lemon zest (optional. I didn't use it because I didn't have any and they turned out lemon-y enough)

Inquiry of the Day:

What kind of holiday traditions do you have?

My family and I always go to church on Christmas Eve, then go to my grandma's after for dinner.

    These look really good. Is there anything I can use to sub the coconut flour? I don't usually have it (and I also don't know where to buy it), so what else could I use? :)

    1. Thanks!
      You could try subbing regular flour, but you'll probably have to add a little bit more, because coconut flour soaks up moisture. You can buy some at Whole Foods or online. Bob's Red Mill has a good brand and I've heard Tropical Traditions is good, too. I got a 5 lbs. bag from Honeyville (where I get my almond flour) that wasn't too exspensive.

  2. These look so fun and adorable! It's snowing here so it reminds me of snowballs :)

    1. Thanks! :D And, the question is, where is it not snowing? ;)
