The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

No equipment required! Which means less dishes to clean, which is always a good thing!

Best served cold, straight-out of the freezer because coconut oil will liquify again once warm.

This recipe makes approximately 15 drop cookies. These are super sweet and rich, so just one after dinner does a lot to satisfy that sugar fix!

Please note: the tahini is definitely the secret ingredient in this recipe. So do not try to substitute it with anything. (And do NOT use sesame seeds instead of real oily/liquidy tahini! The texture will be all screwy and not good if you do that. For realz!)

WOW!!! thank you for this easy delicious recipe!!! I know I will be coming back over and over to keep making these!! I have made these and your ranch dressing a few times! And both recipes are the best!!! I tried the dough and it was like butterscotch, maple, vanilla heaven!! All I had was agave and I think i got around 18-19 cookies out of it!!! I really wish I had maple though!! Next time no more agave and maple or honey!! Thank you so so so so much!!! I highly enjoy these!! I also threw in around 1.5 T of raw cacao to half the batch because I am a chocolate lover!! Next time I may add some cacao nibs to the whole recipe.. We'll see!! xoxo

You are SO right - it totally has a butterscotch flavor! Hadn't put my finger on that, but you hit the nail on the head with the flavor of the unfrozen dough :) So glad you liked, Leila. xox

Hi John,

Good tip - I like it sweet, but probably erring a titch less would be fine too. Glad you liked!

OMG! These are so good! I have not even had the finished cookie yet but I did lick the bowl and it was good! I love coconut and can't wait to get my hands on a cookie in about 30 minutes.

Amazing!!! I followed the exact recipe, something i almost never do :-) it was delightful! They are so creamy and buttery...i whipped the mixture in the food processor then added the coconut. I'm thinking of adding goji berries or dried cranberries and slivered next time.

Question -I REALLY REALLY hate shredded coconut -have my whole life (smile). This recipe looks sooo good. Can it be made without it. Is there ANY substitute for shredded coconut - I truly can't eat it.

Hi Dionna,

Hmm interesting challenge! In this recipe you could maybe use sesame seeds instead? But that might be a bit too heavy, maybe half sesame seeds and half hempseed hearts instead of the coconut???? not too sure though, it's a bit risky as I haven't done that myself.

(PS: You would still need to use the coconut oil though, that's what makes it harden)

Thank you. I am a SUPER NEW beginner - still waiting on my blender and food processor to arrive next week. I love coconut oil so I'm ok with that - just not shredded coconut. I will try to experiment with your suggestions. Thanks again!

Hi Soph,

I don't use raw cacao butter myself, but if you make it with the raw cacao butter I'd love to know what you think :)

I'm not sure how I feel about these. For some reason, they were way too greasy for me. I think I'd like to try them using less of the coconut oil. Since they are high in fat and calories, I kind of want to LOVE them to eat them. But everything else I've made on this site (quite a few things) has been AAHHHHHMAZING!
