For Halloween we are all looking for fun recipes for kids to make. But it is not because it is Halloween that we have to eat treats loaded with bad stuff. That is why I made those coconut almond cookies loaded with wholesome natural ingredients. I t is not that I am against candies – on the contrary my parents own an organic candy factory and I always had candies were I was young. But lately I saw so much cheap quality Halloween treats in the supermarket that I can not buy them. So I decided to develop my own Halloween cookies recipe that will be fun for kids to make, low cost, nutritious and allergy friendly. I really wanted a recipe that taste great and suitable for everyone.
Use your fingers to press them and form round flat cookies. It makes this recipe perfect for toddlers who will enjoy playing with this sticky cookie dough as if it were play dough.
Those almond coconut cookies are mainly made with dessicated coconut and almond meal flavoured with lots of spices ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. The texture is soft in the middle and crusty on the outside.
How I decorated those coconut almond cookies?
I recommend to make some homemade sugar free chocolate recipe here or to use melted dark chocolate > 70%. Simply dip half of the cookie into the melted chocolate and then dip into dessicated coconut or sliced almonds on top. Let dry on a cookie rack. Update on 10/12/2015: I also used unsweetened carob buttons to dip the cookies.
