Vegan and Gluten Free Coconut Cookies

I recently had the pleasure of spending time with Chef Raju at the Art of Living Retreat Center and personally enjoyed these fabulous gluten free cookies.  Make a batch and let us know what you think 🙂  Debra

Ingredients

1 C Brown Rice Flour

1 C Buckwheat Flour

1/8 tsp Salt

½ tsp Baking Powder

1 Tbsp Honey

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 tsp Flaxseed (ground) Soak in 1 Tbsp warm water

1 C Vegetarian Butter (softened)

3 C Sweetened Coconut Flakes

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 F

Whisk together both flours, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.  In a separate bowl add the butter and sugar and blend with a beater until fluffy.  Add in the soaked flax seed, honey and vanilla and mix.  Add in the flour mixture and combine gently.  Add in the coconut and mix well.

Chill the dough until it is firm.  At least 2 hours.  When ready to bake, roll in equal sized balls.  The batter should make around 25 balls.  Arrange them on a baking sheet that is either lightly greased or has parchment paper.

Bake cookies at total of 12-15 minutes.  Half way through, rotate the sheets.  Cool on the sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a serving platter.
