Something to cheer you up for today! πŸ™ŒπŸŽ€πŸŽͺπŸŽ·πŸ’›

Ingredients:

– coconut pulp
– dates
– coconut oil

Flavors:

– cacao powder
– cinnamon
– vanilla powder or extract
– lime juice

Preparation:

Soak dried coconut flakes in water overnight.

Blend the soaked flakes and take out the coconut milk (you can use the milk for tea, chia pudding, coffee, and in many other ways).

Mix the coconut pulp with coconut oil and soaked processed dates until the mixture has a dough consistency.

Add cacao powder, or cinnamon, or vanilla, or lime juice and mix it in well.

Shape the mixture in the form of a heart.

You can eat the cookies right away or you can freeze them to solidify them more or you can dehydrate them for about 7 hours at 113F. I prefer to dehydrate them because they have the perfect consistency and are solid at room temperature.

So simple but so tasty! πŸ˜†πŸŒŸπŸŽ‰
