Simple No Bake Lemon Coconut Macaroons Cookies Recipe

I can't stop eating these.  Thank god they're healthy!  I've ate  half of my batch already.  In fact I'm even eating them as I write this.  I've been obsessed lately with raw cookies.   They're great to have around for snacks.  This is my favorite so far.  I guarantee no one would suspect these are healthy!   This recipe is adapted from Addicted to Veggies's Coconut Lemon Meltaways.  
No Bake Lemon Macaroons 
(yields 21-24 cookies)

Ingredients
  • Almond flour or meal 1 1/3 cups
  • Coconut flour 1/3 cup
  • Flax meal 1/2 cup
  • Sweetened shredded coconut flakes 1 1/2 cups
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 pinches of pink salt
  • 4 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon raw honey (can sub 1 tablespoon with 1 teaspoon stevia)
  • 2 tsp of pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp lemon extract
  • 1 tablespoon zest of organic lemon
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon curd (optional omit if you want it to be raw or vegan)
Directions
1. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl (1 1/2 cup of almond flour, 1/3 cup of flax meal, 1/3 cup of coconut flour, 1 1/2 cup of coconut flakes,2  pinches of salt
2. Mix wet ingredients in a small bowl and mix the lemon curd into the mixture thoroughly.
3. Put the wet ingredients into the large bowl and mix thoroughly
4. Use a cookie scoop to scoop out the cookies and you can either put into the fridge to chill for about a half an hr, or stick them on warm in the oven for 1-2 hrs or in your dehydrator.  I put mine in the oven on warm for two hrs and they were crispy on the outside and soft and warm on the inside. Eat within 24 hours or freeze.  I didn't eat it all right away and they lost all the lemon flavor and the great texture they got from the oven (crispy on the outside gooey on the inside).
