Low Carb Coconut Patties

No-Bake Chocolate-Dipped Macaroons

These coconut cookies taste like fine candy; decorated with white chocolate, they deserve a place on your coffee table.

Makes 25 cookies

  • 1 3/4 oz. (50 g) butter, room temperature
  • sweetener equivalent to 1 tablespoon of honey
  • a pinch real vanilla powder
  • 1/3 cup + 1 1/2 tablespoons (100 ml) heavy cream
  • 7 oz. (200 g) shredded coconut, unsweetened
  • 3 1/2 oz. (100 g) dark chocolate with 70 percent cacao
  • 4 squares sugar-free white chocolate

With a handheld electric mixer, beat butter, sweetener, and vanilla powder until light and airy.

Add the cream while continuing to mix. Add in the shredded coconut, and set the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to firm up.

Roll into tablespoon-sized balls, place them on a platter, and flatten them a little. Chill the balls for 10 minutes before dipping them in chocolate.

In separate bowls, melt the dark and white chocolate over boiling water. Dip the cookies in the dark chocolate, and then set them on a wire rack.

You’ll have an easier time dipping the cookies by using two forks: Spear the cookie on one fork, and dunk it quickly in the chocolate. Tap the fork lightly against the edge of the bowl to remove the excess chocolate drips, and push the cookie on to the wire rack with the second fork.

Make a small piping bag out of wax paper, or use a plastic bag with a small hole cut into one corner. Fill the bag with white chocolate and pipe a spiral starting along the outer edge of each cookie. With a toothpick, draw lines towards the middle of the cookie to make a flower motif.

Place the cookies in the refrigerator to chill. Store them for up to a week in a tin in the refrigerator, or freeze and defrost them as needed (in the refrigerator). Bring the cookies to room temperature for a bit before serving them to let their flavor develop fully.

The recipe is taken from my cookbook Low Carb High Fat Cooking for Healthy Aging.

This book I wrote along with Annika Dahlqvist, MD, founder of the LCHF-movement in Sweden.

Maybe a holiday gift…?

    I didn’t know that coconut patties were an actual thing. It would be nice to try them because they actually look really good. I wonder if there are other recipes that you can use with these patties.

      Maybe we could do something together with this recipe?
      I think the US is ready for a Low-Carb version of Sundelights Coconut Patties.
      Write your e-mail adress if you’re interested in such a co-operation, Charles.

      It’s grounded vanilla pod 🙂 I don’t count carbs, so you have to do it yourself, Maria…
