3 Ingredient Chewy Samoas (A staple in our home)

Say goodbye to sugar and toxin-loaded girlscout cookies and hello to healthier, homemade samoas! This recipe is so simple. Warning:once you start making these for your family, it's very hard to stop. ☺️


  • 10 large or 20 small dates, pitted and soaked in warm water

  • 1 cup unsweetened toasted coconut flakes

  • Melted chocolate chips (I like to use either the Hu Kitchen brand or the Pascha brand)


  1. Soak dates in warm water until soft

  2. I like to toast my own shredded coconut. I just put coconut shreds on a baking tray at 350 and bake until golden (5-10 minutes). If you already have coconut shreds that have been toasted, skip this step.

  3. Drain then blend dates in a food processor or high-speed blender.

  4. Stir together the toasted coconut and the blended dates.

  5. Roll into balls and flatten.

  6. Poke a hole in the center of each cookie with the end of a spoon (or your finger)

  7. Put cookies in the freezer while you melt your chocolate

  8. Melt chocolate on stovetop using double boiler method.

  9. Once chocolate is melted, take cookies out of freezer and dip the bottoms in the melted chocolate, then drizzle melted chocolate on top.

  10. Put back into freezer for 2-3 hours.

  11. Store in the freezer. Cookies will melt, so do not thaw before eating. They will not freeze through, so enjoy directly from the freezer.

  12. Bon Appetit 😋
