This is the dessert your brain wants you to eat.
By the authors of The Happiness Diet
Coconut fat got a bad rap, but that reputation is undeserved. Coconut's medium-chain fats enhance your body's fat-burning capacity and production of ketones, the only other fuel your brain can burn besides glucose. Lemon zest powers these with liminoids aplenty, plus citrus flavonoids that protect the brain.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Vigorously whisk the eggs in a large bowl.
Using your hands, mix in the shredded coconut and lemon zest.
Mold about a tablespoon of the mixture into small balls and place on a butter-greased baking sheet.
Bake for 18 to 22 minutes, or until golden on top.
Makes about 30 cookies, serves 15.
