EASY CHEWY BUTTERY COCONUT COOKIES
Ingredients

2 ½ cups          Large, unsweetened Coconut Flakes
½ cup               Blanched Almond Flour
¼ cup + 2T      Grass-fed Butter, soft but NOT melted
½ cup               Pure Maple Syrup 

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add all ingredients to a mixer or food processor. Blend until the batter is thick and sticky and holds together. Scoop firmly packed balls of the batter onto your prepared baking sheet. Place the balls pretty far apart because they will spread when baked!
Bake for 15 minutes. The cookies should be golden brown around the edges and on top. Cool for 30 minutes before eating them.
