Persimmon Coconut Cookies

In the mood for some cookies but wanted to get away from the typical seed and coconut flour based recipes. Can't do tree nuts due to allergies.

Out comes the coconut butter, 1 cup to be exact. Add to that 1/2c chopped dried persimmons, 1 egg, 1tbsp honey, 1tsp baking powder, 1/4tsp sea salt. 

Mix thoroughly

Compress into a ball and place silicone mat or parchment

Smash to 1/2in thickness

Bake at 350deg for 8min. Let cool completely before moving, crumbly while still warm but firms up nicely at room temperature

Flavor and texture is surprisingly like shortbread

  1. Looks very simple and delicious, we use dried persimmons in a special tea on Chinese New Year, must try the cookies this year.
