Happy Summer! Today I offer some really quick & easy recipes – and since this is a Coconut Blog, I want to “alert you” to #11 and #18.
For a lot of these recipes, you use a Food Processor. Such as with Number 6, “No Bake Energy Bars” — in this case, you get out your handy-dandy food processor & BLEND the dates.
Then you just ADD the oats. Easy peasy !
#11 is “Coconut Cookie Dough Balls” and there’s also a quick recipe for Macaroon Cookies (#18); it’s a simple recipe, it’s just 2 ingredients: condensed milk + coconut.
Now, #11 (coconut cookies) requires coconut butter; it uses pitted dates for the flavor. That’s how basic it is – just 2 ingredients !!
All of these amazing looking goodies share one thing in common: they all only use two ingredients. That’s right. TWO ingredients. Don’t believe me? Take a look.
