Somehow I end up turning everything into cookies. These began as a way for me to freeze coconut and blueberries to throw into morning smoothies and turned into wonderful cookies that can be enjoyed any time of day.
Note: If the batter is not sticking together enough, freeze it for a bit and then begin to form into whatever shape you would like. You can try this with any other kind of berry as well! I love keeping these in the freezer for a quick dessert OR a throw them in my morning smoothie.
Dr Jockers Comments:
This recipe is nut-less and loaded with superfood nutrition that is very easy on the digestive system. Blueberries are rich in anthocyanin anti-oxidants and coconut flakes contain tons of fiber and healthy fats.
I personally like these best with stevia instead of honey to reduce the sugar load. The honey does help them stick together better and many prefer that flavor over stevia. However, honey does elevate blood sugar while stevia does not.
