  1. If your dates are a bit dry, place them in warm water for a few minutes to soften them before proceeding.

  3. Add the toasted coconut and stir with a spoon.
  4. Roll the mixture into balls, and flatten with your hand. Place the cookies on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet. Use a straw to poke a hole in the middle of each cookie.
  5. Place the cookies in the freezer for about one hour.
  6. Melt the dairy free chocolate chips either in the microwave or on the stove.
  7. Dip the chilled cookies in the melted chocolate, coating the bottom with chocolate. Place on the cookie sheet again.

  9. Store the finished cookies in the refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

*If the coconut flakes are not toasted, you can toast them by placing them on a cookie sheet and baking them at 300 degrees for about 5-8 minutes. Don't wander too far off, they can easily burn. They are done when they are fragrant and lightly golden brown.
