Coconut Mango Lime No bake Cookies

I love cookies but it is too hot to bake so recently I decided to try some no bake cookies.  Recently, I have found a bunch of raw food vegan food websites and many of them have recipes for no bake cookies.   After reading a bunch of them I decide to give it a try.  I love all things with coconut and lime in them, so I decide that a tropical cookie was the way to go.  I am so happy with this recipe.  I know the cookies aren’t much to look at but they are heavenly. They were so good I didn’t share any of them with my kids. I just ate the last one and now I wish I had more.   
This recipe is super-fast and easy and amazing. It makes about 10 cookies, and they need to refrigerate for a while, as the mangoes soften and then honey solidifies.  An hour or two in the fridge is ample.     

Coconut Mango Lime No Bake Cookies

1/2 cup freeze dried mangoes
1 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
pinch salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lime juice
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons honey

In the bowl of a food processor, blend the coconut into powder.  Add dry mangoes, don't rehydrate just add them dry, and process until everything is powdered.  Add all other ingredients and process until to forms a "dough" about a minute.  Roll into balls.  Refrigerate until firm.   Yield 10 cookies
