3 cups raw sesame, divided
2 cups sweet coconut flakes
1/2 cup agave
1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
2 oz semi sweet chocolate
1/4 teaspoon vegetable oil
Heat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with oil. Set aside.
In the food processor add one cup sesame, one cup coconut flakes, agave, vanilla sugar. Mix for a few minutes until you get a paste. Pour into a bowl, add the rest of the sesame and the coconut flakes, and mix with a spatula.
Pour into the baking sheet and press tightly with wet hands to spread the mixture evenly.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
In the meantime, take a small bowl and melt the chocolate in the microwave. Add the oil and mix well.
When the cookies are ready, drizzle the chocolate with a fork and create a lined pattern.
Take a heart-shaped cookie cutter and use it to cut the cookies. Don't try to seperate them yet; let them cool completely on a cooling rack first so it will be easier to separate them when they are set.
Makes about 10-12 cookies. (It depends how thin you made the dough.
