Walnut, Coconut And Chocolate Chunkies

I call these chunkies because they have chunks of chocolate, but they are actually cookies with lots of goodies. Just imagine walnuts, chocolate, coconut and maple syrup, the combination of these ingredients make amazing cookies and as a bonus there is no added fat! Just because you are eating a sweet treat it does not mean it has to be unhealthy. I also use these as energy cookies before a workout…what a treat!

 

Ingredients

2 cups raw walnuts
3 tbsp. buckwheat flour
¼ tsp. sea salt
½ cup pure maple syrup
1 tsp. pure vanilla
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or you can use chocolate bar chopped into small chunks)
½ cup unsweetened shredded pure coconut
