Tropical Bliss in Every Bite: Coconut-Mango Shortbread Cookie Bites

Coconut-Mango Shortbread Cookie Bites

One of my absolute favorite things, both back when I was deep into raw foods and still now, is making batches of raw cookie balls. The beauty of these treats lies in their endless possibilities – you can experiment endlessly with different flavors and ingredients. What sets raw cookie balls apart from the traditional baked cookies is their wholesome nature; they skip the refined flours and eggs, relying instead on a mix of nuts, spices, dried fruits, and seeds that offer a tantalizing mix of aromas, tastes, and textures. Today, I'm excited to share with you a recipe that's been close to my heart for over a decade: Coconut-Mango Shortbread Cookie Bites. Join me as we dive into the tropical paradise of flavors packed into each delightful morsel.

Coconut-Mango Shortbread Cookie Bites Recipe:


  • 1 cup Brazil nuts

  • 1 cup Macadamia nuts (dry)

  • 2 tablespoons lucuma powder

  • 1 cup dried organic unsulphured coconut flakes

  • 2/3 to 1 cup dried unsulphured mango (finely chopped)

  • 10 Medjool dates (pitted)

  • 1/2 teaspoon organic non-alcoholic vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • Drizzles of agave nectar


  1. In a food processor, pulse the nuts until crumbly, ensuring they don't become oily.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until a dough-like consistency forms.

  3. Using a cookie scoop or spoon, shape the mixture into ½ to 1-inch balls.

  4. Refrigerate to firm up or enjoy at room temperature. For optimal handling, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
