Pandan Coconut Cookies (Raw, Vegan, Gluten-free, Refined Sugar-free)

Friday, November 20, 2015

I used to eat a lot of Pandan desserts when I was small. However, it is quite hard to find fresh pandan leaves here in Hong Kong. So, if I want to make desserts with pandan flavor, I can only use the pandan extracts, which is full of chemicals and refined sugar and I definitely will prevent using this kind of stuff. Luckily, I finally found an online grocery shop selling fresh pandan leaves in HK! After ordering some from Jou Sun, the leaves were delivered to my doorstep on the same day! What a convenient service for such an improvised person like me :P I immediately made some pandan extracts from the leaves and whipped up a batch of raw pandan coconut cookies. Pandan and coconuts are absolutely a match made in heaven and you can never go wrong with this combination.

Apart from this raw cookie, I also love to add the pandan extract to my daily green smoothie, coconut porridge (YUM!), raw cakes, banana ice cream and also pancakes! Stay tuned for a series of PANDAN recipes :)



Ingredients:


Pandan Extract:

10 pandan leaves
1/2 cup coconut water

Raw Pandan Cookies

1 cup cashew nuts
2 cups shredded coconut
4 Tbsp pandan extract
2 Tbsp coconut nectar
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla powder



Directions:


  1. For the pandan extract, chop the leaves into small pieces.
  2. Place them together with coconut water in a food processor and process until smooth
  3. Use a nut milk bag to strain the mixture and collect the extract for later use
  4. For the cookies, place everything into a high-speed blender (I used Vitamix) and blend until everything holds together like a dough. You may need to add some water to get them stick together
  5. Take out 1 tsp of the dough and roll it into a ball, slightly press it down on a lined baking tray to make it looks like a cookie
  6. Continue on the rest of the dough
  7. Sprinkle anything you like on top as decoration, here I used cranberry powder, raw cacao nibs and hemp seeds
  8. Enjoy
