  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate (chips or a chopped bar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
* How to toast coconut

Place a small frying pan over medium-low heat and add the coconut. Stir all the way through the process, until the coconut begins to turn light golden brown. Then remove the coconut to a bowl or plate to cool.

Alternately, you can toast the coconut in the oven.

How to make the coconut cookies

Place the dates in the food processor, and process until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides. Then add the cashews and pulse until the mixture is combined.

Add the toasted coconut and pulse until starts to form a ball of dough.

Remove the dough from the food processor, roll the mixture into small balls, and flatten with your hands, shaping into a round cookie.

Using a chopstick poke a hole in the middle of each cookie.

Place the cookies on a sheet lined with parchment or a silicone mat and put it in the freezer to harden up a bit, while you prepare the chocolate.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave with the coconut oil and drizzle the tops of the cookies using a spoon. Place in the fridge for a few minutes to set.

PT:
  • 1 caneca de côco ralado _ torrado *
  • 1+1/2 caneca de tâmara
  • 1 caneca cajus
  • 1/3 caneca de chocolate preto (pepitas ou de barra)
  • ½ colher de chá de óleo de côco
* Como torrar o côco

Colocar o côco numa frigideira em lume médio-baixo e ir mexendo até que comece a ficar douradinho. Neste ponto retirar o côco do lume e transferir para uma tigela ou prato. 

Em alternativa, pode-se torrar o côco no forno. 

Como fazer as bolachinhas de côco 

Colocar as tâmaras no processador de alimentos e processar até que fique homogêneo, parando para raspar as paredes laterais se necessário. 

Adicionar os cajus e pulsar até que a mistura esteja combinada. De seguida, adicionar o côco torrado e pulsar até começar a formar uma bola de massa.

Retirar a massa do processador de alimentos, rolar a mistura em pequenas bolas e achatar com a mão, moldando um biscoito redondo.

Usando um pauzinho chinês, fazer um buraco no meio de cada biscoito.

Colocar as bolachinhas num tabuleiro forrado com papel manteiga ou folha num tapete de silicone. Colocar no para endurecerem um pouco, enquanto se prepara o chocolate.

Derreter o chocolate no microondas com o óleo de côco e com uma colher decorar as bolachinhas com o chocolate.

Colocar no frigorifico por alguns minutos para solidificar o chocolate.
