These raw cookies are sweet, coconutty, and chewy — essentially, they're the perfect summer cookie. Dried pineapple is combined with coconut, oats, pecans, and soft dates with no extra sweetener added. Since everything is better with chocolate, they're dipped in smooth dark chocolate and then chilled. Make a batch of these on hot days when you want something sweet, but don't feel like baking.
