Lemon Coconut Cookie Cups

If you like lemon and coconut, you must try these Lemon Coconut Cookie Cups! The other day in my Facebook group, someone shared a recipe for cookie cups.  Well I saw that and had to make my own version of cookie cups.  These cookie cups are vegan, gluten free and grain free.  They also only contain 5 simple ingredients! If you like all things lemon, then you may also like my Healthy Lemon Tarts or my Lemon Cookie Dough Bites.

It took me a couple days to be able to shoot the photo for this and Marcus kept begging to eat them! These are absolutely delicious.  I used a coconut whip cream to make the filling.  So yummy!

If you want a visual of how to make the coconut whip cream, you can watch this video.

    For the cookie cup

    For the filling


    1. Preheat oven to 350.
    2. In a food processor , combine all the cookie cup ingredients and blend until smooth.
    3. Press the dough into greased muffin cup pans . Make sure you press the dough all the way up the sides to form cups.
    4. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
    5. Let cool completely.
    6. To make the filling, place a can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight. After the can has been in the fridge, open it up and scoop out the white fatty part and place it in a mixing bowl with the maple syrup, lemon juice and lemon zest. Save the leftover water for smoothies.
    7. Using a whipping attachment on your mixer , mix until you get a whip cream consistency. If your mixture looks a little watery, place it in the fridge for about 15 minutes.
    8. Spoon the whip cream into a pastry bag and pipe the filling into each cookie cup.
    9. Place in the fridge until you are ready to serve.

      1. I just tried it w/ sun butter & they did not come out of the muffin tins. I also don't like the flavor - I think the flavor would be much better w/ cashew butter.
    1. Am I missing something? The crust ingredients listed here are : cashew butter, maple syrup, and lemon juice. I assume there is a flour of some kind??
