Strawberry Coconut Thumbprint Cookies

Soft, chewy, fresh, delicious, and heavenly: everything a cookie should be.

Christmas cookies #1 for 2010. Red strawberries add some color to a holiday cookie tray! Inspiration for these from The Spunky Coconut. I added coconut and fresh strawberries, to make these extra-delicious.


1/2 cup ghee or coconut oil, liquified
6 tbsp honey or agave
1/2 cup applesauce
1 tsp chia seeds, ground
1 tsp vanilla                                      --> beat wet ingredients

2/3 cup tapioca flour
2/3 cup coconut flour, sifted
2/3 cup shredded coconut              --> add dry ingredients

Mix!  Then roll into 1-2 inch balls, flatten slightly, and create an indent in the center. Fill with strawberry filling:


Chopped strawberries  (~ 1/2 cup)
Xylitol           (~1 tsp/to taste)          --> sprinkle on top and mix

Bake at 350 degrees for ~12 minutes.
