No Bake Grain Free Chocolate Haystack Cookies

Grain Free Haystack Cookies_fb3

I recently had a request for a grain free version of the no bake haystack cookies that are usually made with oats.  My first thought was that coconut would be a great substitute for the oats.  I decided to use a combination of the shredded coconut and the flakes to give it more of the correct texture.  I’m a big fan of no bake cookies, especially around the holidays, since it’s a big time saver.  No need to watch the oven to make sure they don’t burn.

These are great for holiday cookie exchanges or parties!
