I ate my last Emmy's Organic Cookie and was heartbroken. Are you ever sooo in the mood for something and then come to find an empty bag of what you actually want sitting in your pantry or fridge? I feel like this happens to me way too often.
If you have never tried Emmy's Organics I highly suggest you give them a shot. They are AMAZING! The consistency is on point for a vegan, plant based cookie (nice and chewy) almost like a macaroon type of vibe.
Since amazon prime would take two days to deliver, and I didn't feel like leaving my apartment, I set out to create these magical cookies myself (or at least come close to them).
First I started with trying to re-create the dark chocolate coconut. I decided to also sneak in a little super food (maca powder) which is said to increase your energy and improve mood. (however, cookies always improve my mood)
All it takes is one mixing bowl and then you form the dough into balls, and flatted with the back of a measuring cup to form the shape. The cookies are pretty moist(sorry to those I made cringe with that word) at this point. They require no baking at all, but take a while to dry out. I left my cookies out on paper towels for about 1-2hrs.
However, with the second batch of peanut butter coconut cookies I got lazy and just wrapped them in parchment paper and put them in the fridge. My husband and taste tester preferred the consistency of the chocolate over the PB which went straight to the fridge no drying out process. I could eat them either way!
I only tested these out making four at a time for each flavor...I imagine you can double the recipe to make a larger batch, but I didn't want to have more cookies than I needed since I was selfishly making these for me :).

Ingredients for Peanut Butter Coconut Cookies (Makes 4):
Directions for Both Cookies:
Step 1: Combine all Ingredients into a bowl and mix well. The consistency should be thick enough to roll into balls without sticking too much to your hands.
Step 2: Flatten out cookies on paper towels with back of a measuring cup to get cookie shape above.
Step 3: Let the cookies dry out for at least 2 hrs before eating and storing. You could theoretically eat this batter right from the mixing bowl too!
