I first tried this recipe about 9 months ago before we started travelling and discovered that it was a huge hit with everybody who tried it. It was our particular favourite when we went on day trips exploring as a tasty but healthy treat, and we’re confident everybody who tries it will love it!
1/2 cup freeze dried mangoes
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lime juice (fresh is best if you can)
1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons honey
1. In the bowl of a food processor, blend the coconut until it is a fine powder.
2. Add the dried mangoes. Don’t rehydrate them – just add them dry – and process until everything is powdered.
3. Add all other ingredients and process until it forms a “dough”. This will take about a minute.
4. Roll into balls.
5. Refrigerate until firm.
Depending on the size, it will make about 10 cookies.
I have also tried this with dried pineapple instead of mango – absolutely delicious!
