Anyway, have any of you used coconut palm sugar? I'm SO excited about it! It's low glycemic index and it tastes really good. I made these delicious dehydrated frosted coconut cookies, that remind me a lot of a certain famous chocolate covered coconut candy bar with an almond on top... :-)
Chocolate Frosted Coconut Cookies:
Add to pan over low heat till just dissolved:
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup coconut sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
12 drops vanilla liquid stevia
Optional: 1/2 tsp mint extract
Pour liquids into bowl containing:
1.5 cups shredded coconut
1 tbsp Chia Seed meal (this is the glue that binds it together)
Optional: 1/2 cup slivered almonds
Stir to combine.
Roll into balls and flatten slightly.
Place on dehydrator tray with liner.
Dehydrate at about 115 degrees for two hours.
They will be chewy and moist the first day, and slightly drier on the second day.
Optional: Top with ganache: 1 to 1 ratio of melted chocolate and milk (I use coconut milk)
