Chocolate Oatmeal Layer

  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons date syrup sub honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch sea salt
  • 3/4 cup oatmeal certified gluten free, if necessary
  • 24 almonds optional

Chewy Coconut Layer

Dark Chocolate Coating


  • Prepare the chocolate oatmeal layer first. Add all ingredients except oatmeal to a bowl and mix well until glossy. Add oatmeal, and stir come fully coat.
  • Divide the chocolate oatmeal layer into 12 cookies by pressing the mixture down in a mini muffin tin (I love my silicone mini muffin pan for this).
  • Prepare the almond coconut layer by adding the almond butter, coconut oil, and honey to a bowl. Mix to combine, and then microwave for 20-30 seconds to warm until it just begins to bubble, but not for too long. Watch carefully to keep the mixture from hardening too much. Remove from microwave, and add coconut, and stir to combine.
  • Divide the coconut layer between the 12 cookies.
  • Top with a layer of melted dark chocolate, and 2 almonds if desired.
  • Freeze until set, at least 25 minutes.
