GAPS No-Bake Cookies

It's easy to focus on all of the things that we can't eat, but I try to get the kids to focus instead on all of the things that we can eat.  We don't eat packaged candy and other sweets, but we CAN have many wonderful homemade treats that the kids love and appreciate now.  One of their favorites are these GAPS friendly No-bake Cookies.  I based my recipe for these cookies off of this Whole Food No Bake Cookie recipe.  These don't last long at my house.  As you can see, a little cookie thief snatched one before I could even get a picture.

1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup coconut oil
5T cocoa powder
1/2 cup Organic Sunbutter (Regular Sunbutter has added sugar!)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup coconut flakes (Make sure you use unsweetened!)

Melt honey, coconut oil, and cocoa powder together over medium heat.  Remove from heat and stir in Sunbutter and vanilla.  Once mixed well, stir in the coconut flakes.  Place by tablespoons on waxed paper and put them in the freezer for a few minutes to set up.
