I don’t think I could ever get tired of cookies.
I’ve always been more of a cookie than a cake girl. I remember when I first moved to London, and I was introduced to the word biscuit. In the UK, a biscuit is basically the crispier cookies, the ones that pair incredibly well with tea. So, if you’re reading this in London, these are more a biscuit, if you will.
Biscuit or cookie, I can promise you these are absolutely, incredibly delicious.
You get that amazing coconut flavour from the coconut oil, the coconut milk, and the delicious bits of shredded coconut throughout. We’re also using coconut sugar here, which actually has an incredible caramel-like flavour to it!
The goji berries dot the whole cookie/biscuit with colour, and not only give it a tartly sweet taste, but also boost it’s superfood goodness with its high antioxidant content. As far as a treat goes, this is a pretty good one!
They go perfectly with a cup of tea, especially a bitter one like green tea. Or even coffee, if you’re so inclined.
I made mine into stars and hearts, but you could do any shapes you wanted. I preferred the heart shape, but I’m sure something cool like cats or Darth Vader would work just as well!
Since they’re raw cookies, you also don’t have to worry about them losing shape!
I did originally intend to make some baked cookies/biscuits, but my trusty oven decided to be trusty no more and broke down on me, so I did what any cookie-lover would do – I ate them raw. Turns out, raw cookies are just as delicious!
Now, since I modified these to make them into raw cookies, I don’t know how they’d fare out being baked, but if you want to try, I’d love to know how they turn out!
