  • Yield: 14 pieces

With only a handful of ingredients, these macaroon-esque cookies couldn’t be simpler.


8 dates, pits removed, chopped
3/4cup unsweetened coconut flakes
3/4cup roasted, salted macadamias
1/2teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1tablespoon raw honey
1 eggs


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped. You want a slightly chunky consistency, not a smooth paste.
  3. Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets.
  4. Bake 12-15 minutes, until golden brown on tops and bottoms.
  5. Cool on trays placed on wire racks. Store in an airtight container 3-4 days, or freeze up to 3 months.
  1. Note: If you’re using dates that are a little older, use a few extra to help with moisture, or simply soak in warm water for 5 minutes, then drain prior to using.
