Chewy Raw Coconut Cookies

Chewy Raw Coconut Cookies

I’m in love with a version of these  raw vegan cookies (or chewies as they call them) that are sold at Lifethyme here in NYC, and this week, I really wanted one and they were all sold out.  So, I did what any resourceful pregnant woman with a craving would do: I made them myself (or at least how I imagine they make them!)

Here is what I did:


  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut, plus more for rolling
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • Dash of salt


Place all ingredients in a Vitamix or high speed blender on high until completely blended.  Scrape out of blender, and roll into as many balls as you like.  Use your palm to flatten balls into cookies, then press in coconut flakes for garnish.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.  Enjoy! Xo, Heidi
