No Bake Trail Mix Cookies (Paleo and Vegan)
- ½ cup dried figs
- ½ cup raisins
- ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut (1/4 cup for recipe and 1/4 cup for coating)
- 2 Tablespoons sunflower seeds or chopped nuts of choice
- ¼ cup cooked quinoa
- In a small food processor, process the figs and raisins into a thick paste. You can add a Tablespoon of applesauce if the dried fruit is too thick to puree very well.
- In a bowl, add the coconut, sunflower seeds, and quinoa and mix together well until all incorporated. You can use your hands to knead the mixture.
- Separate the dough into 12 portions (@ 1 Tablespoon each). Roll into a ball then flatten into a cookie shape. Coat in shredded coconut and store in the fridge. Enjoy!
