- Scout cookies are a grown-up version of the popular Girl Scout Samoa, and this homemade version will beat any samoa craving!
- In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the S blade, pulse the walnuts 7-10 times until they are finely chopped.
- Transfer the chopped walnuts to a large mixing bowl and stir together with almond flour, coconut, flax, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
- In the bowl of the food processor, combine the dates, egg, honey, vanilla and butter or oil. Process until smooth. If you still see flecks of date, that's ok, but make sure there are no large chunks left.
- Pour the wet (food processor) mixture into the dry mixture that you set aside and stir to thoroughly combine.
- Use an ice cream scoop to portion the dough into 4-tablespoon mounds. Use your palm to gently flatten the top into a thick disc. Place the cookies 2" apart on the prepared baking sheet.
- Bake for 16-20 minutes (mine took exactly 18) until golden brown. Cool on the sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Once the cookies are cooled, drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookies. The easiest way to do this is to pour the melted chocolate into a small zip top bag, seal it, and snip the corner off of the bag so that you can use it as a piping bag. Allow the chocolate to set before serving.
