Cowboy Cookies

- Inspired by Danielle Walker's Recipe in Eat What you Love
6 tbsp hot water
2 tbsp ground flaxseeds
1 cup unsweetened coconut
1 cup butter, coconut oil, palm shortening or a combination
2/3 cup raw honey or maple syrup
1/2 cup raw cane sugar
2 tsp pure vanilla
2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup arrowroot flour
7 tbsp coconut flour
4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp fine sea salt
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (Enjoy Life is dairy free)
Preheat oven to 350 F.  In a small bowl mix the ground flax and water and set aside.
Place the coconut on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 2-5 minutes.
In a mixing bowl, add the butter, coconut oil and use a hand mixer to beat until creamy.  Add in the honey, sugar, vanilla and flax mixture and blend until combined.
Add the almond flour, arrowroot flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt and beat for again until combined.
Add the toasted coconut flakes, chocolate chips and fold together until incorporated.
Form the dough into 24 golf ball sized balls and place them on two baking sheets lined with parchment, or use stoneware.  
Bake one sheet at a time for 10-15 minutes depending on your oven, until the edges of the cookies are golden brown.
Cool for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Can be stored up to 2 weeks in the fridge in an airtight container, or the freezer for 6 months.
*The second time I baked these at 400 F for 10 minutes.
