Coconut Lemon Drops + Good News

I have an announcement.

I decided to prolong my time at BYU. Yes, this is good news. 
I am adding a Visual Arts minor. This means that I will be taking a lot of visual arts core classes (History of World Civilization, History of Interior Design, etc.) as well as graphic design and photography classes. I am really enjoying my time at Help Me Grow and having the opportunity to design and create, and it has left me craving more!

Anyway, that's my good news :) Here is a treat.

adapted from Addicted to Veggies

1 1/2 cups almond flour
1 1/2 cups dried shredded unsweetened coconut
1/3 cup coconut flour
2 big pinches of salt

6 Tbsp agave (you can also use honey or maple syrup)
4 Tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp lemon zest (Tip: Zest your Lemon before you juice it)

1/4 cup coconut oil + Tbsp melted coconut oil

In an electric mixer, combine dry ingredients and set aside.
In separate bowl, mix together agave, lemon juice, vanilla, and lemon zest.
Slowly add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well. While mixer is still running, slowly add coconut oil and mix until oil cools down.
Using a cookie scoop (or ice cream scoop) drop dough onto cookie sheet and either cook in oven (200 degrees, 1 hour) or let them sit refrigerator for one hour.


  1. Congrats! There's no better time in your life to do that than now! I now wish that I would have taken some business classes, too. I do so much outside of my home now that it would have been nice to have learned some good business practices. Oh, and where in the world do you find almond flour?!?

  2. It sounds like the visual arts minor will be perfect for you! You've done a great job with Watch Me Grow, it makes sense to combine your two loves, children and photography/artsy stuff, into a balance of both and get paid for what you are good at and what you love to do!

  3. Thanks, ladies! Jennie, I made my own almond flour by using a blender or food processor. Shannon, thanks, I'm really excited! :)
