What do you get when you cross a BALL with a COOKIE? A BOOKIE! These little bookies are like little bombs of joy. If my tastebuds had feet they would be doing a happy dance right now. If you want your tastebuds to be busting some moves too then just make these. It’s that easy.
1/8 cup coconut oil (melted)
1 cup dessicated coconut
1/4 cup nut butter (or tahini/sunflower seed butter)
1-2 tbs maple syrup/honey/rice malt syrup (or stevia to taste)
1-2 tsp ground ginger (depending on how strong your ginger is)
OPTIONAL- Some chopped dark chocolate or dark choc chips
Preheat the oven to 180C. In a bowl mix the coconut oil & nut butter together until well combined. Add the maple syrup & ginger and stir well. Add all remaining ingredients & mix well. Shape into mini balls with the chocolate in the centre (if you are using it) shapes and place on a baking paper lined tray. If you are doing the Choc centers make sure the chocolate is completely enclosed by the dough otherwise it will leak out and then you will have less chocolate & that’s just sad. These won’t spread so you can keep them nice & close. Bake for 10mins. Allow to cool for about 15 mins then tuck in. This makes about 10 little bookies.1
Loved the recipe. Didn’t have ground ginger so used ground cinnamon instead!
Only minor problem was that the mixture was a little runny and I was unable to form balls.. Added hazelnut meal to thicken it up.. Has anyone else had the same problem?
Thank you! The cinnamon addition is a great idea! Let me double check the recipe & make sure I wrote the correct amount of coconut!!
I adjusted the recipe to 1 cup coconut, I used stevia as my sweetener so didn’t have the extra liquid from the honey! Thanks for the feedback!
Stevia is not good for you???
Is that a question or a statement?
I’ve made a couple of batches of these and they are VERY popular with my toddler as well as us adults! Lovely recipe – thanks.
Thank you Kate!! I love them too!
