Preparation

  1. Place all of the ingredients in your food processor fitted with the s blade, and pulse until well combined but still little chunky.
  2. Remove from food processor, roll 1 Tablespoon-size piece of dough into a ball and then shape into a round cookie.
  3. Using a straw or chopstick punch a hole in the middle of the cookie. Move the straw/chopstick around a bit to make the hole wider, if needed. You might have to reshape the cookie a bit if you want an even shape.
  4. Place each cookie on a baking tray or cutting board lined with unbleached parchment paper.
  5. Once all cookies are shaped transfer the tray to the freezer for 20 minutes to harden up a bit.
  6. For the chocolate, add chocolate pieces and coconut oil to a shallow heat-safe bow. Then place the bowl in a shallow pan containing a small amount of warm (not boiling, but nearly) water. Stir the oil and chocolate occasionally until it’s smooth and ready for drizzle.
