Hidden Jem “Butter” Cookies

Ingredients

* 2 1/2 cups almond flour
* 3 medjool dates, pitted, quartered and rolled into a ball
* 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
* 1/4 cup coconut sugar
* 1 flax egg [1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water]
* 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
* 1/4 teaspoon celtic sea salt

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat. Set side.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk almond flour, sugar, and salt until combined.
  3. In a larger bowl, combine coconut oil, flax egg and vanilla extract. Add dry to wet and mix until incorporated.
  4. Separate dough into 2 balls, cover with parchment paper, and place in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  5. Once complete, spoon 2 tbsp of dough in your hand and flatten, then place a date in the middle and fold the dough over top. Roll the dough in between your hands to make a ball [make sure you can't see the date!], then press down to make a bit flatter. Place on the prepared cookie sheet and continue with the remaining dough.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool.

Thank you! I have a stock of Earth Balance at home always! That would probably add a yummy flavor.

You could try earth balance or butter, but I'm not sure what the outcome would be. You may have to play around with it.

These look and sound sooo good! Are there any substitutions for coconut oil?
