Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Spread the shredded coconut onto a baking sheet for toasting. Place in oven for 5-10 minutes, until coconut is a light golden brown color. Make sure to stay in the kitchen watch the coconut, as it can easily go from toasted to burnt. Alternately, you can toast the coconut in a pan on the stove-top.
Add dates and toasted coconut into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until mixture is combined and starts to form a ball of dough.
Remove from food processor, roll 1 Tablespoon size pieces of dough into a ball and then shape into a round cookie. Using a straw or chopstick punch a hole in the middle of the dough. Move the straw or chopstick around a bit to make the hole wider, if needed.
Place all cookies on a sheet lined with parchment and transfer to the freezer to harden up a bit (10 to 15 mins). While cookies are in the freezer, add chocolate and coconut oil to a shallow microwave-safe bowl and melt in 20-30 second increments until the chocolate is melted enough to drizzle.
Grab cookies from the freezer and dip each one in the chocolate to coat the bottom. Place cookies on the parchment and use remaining chocolate to drizzle over top the cookies. Transfer cookies back into the freezer for 10-15 minutes to let the chocolate harden. Once they’ve hardened you’ll be able to easily remove the cookies from the parchment paper. If you want to enjoy right away, let them sit out on the counter for a few minutes. For enjoying later, store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to one week.

About 7 years ago I started looking into some CrossFit gyms. I went to 3 gyms in my local area. When I walked into 2... of them they handed me a piece of paper saying this is our schedule and how much it costs. When I walked into RADD one of the owners Diana had a conversation with me. When I walked out the door I knew this would be the gym I’d try out first. Fast forward 7 years later I can’t say enough good things about them. Not only did they teach me about getting fit but they helped me create a better lifestyle for myself and in turn my family. RADD Crossfit constantly goes over the top to help benefit not only their members but the community around them as well. I’m a school teacher in the Glen Cove school district and on multiple occasions they have invited students into their facility to exercise and share information about running a business and nutrition. If you have any second thoughts about joining RADD CrossFit just go in and chat with the owners. The first step is walking in the door. They’ll help guide you from there.read more

I recently joined RADD after moving from the city to Glen Cove, and so far the experience has been great! The owners... and staff have been incredibly welcoming, from the moment I requested information Dan reached out to me immediately (like, within a minute of pressing submit) and wanted to learn about my goals as well as what drives me to be fit and healthy. Since it’s a family run business, there’s definitely a personal touch you sense right away, they care a lot about their members and the quality of the space and equipment. With Covid, the safety measures in place have made me feel comfortable, and I’ve really enjoyed the workouts so far.
