Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies? I know I do – too bad the traditional kind is loaded with stuff thats bad for you like flour, sugar and butter.
That’s OK, though because this delicious coconut flour chocolate chip cookies recipe is a great substitute for traditional cookies and it’s actually good for you!
I’ve substituted coconut flour for regular flour – unlike white flour that is basically devoid of nutritional value, coconut flour has nutrients, protein and fiber and it’s gluten free! Instead of sugar, I use coconut palm sugar which is loaded with nutrients and instead of butter I use coconut oil.
You’d think with all this coconut ingredients the would taste coconutty, but they don’t! One thing I will say is that they are dry – coconut flour is really dense and dry – so you’re going to want a big glass of milk to wash them down.

I put the cookies in balls, ok, well they are more like lumps, on the cookie sheet then I press them down. Pressing them down is pretty important because they won’t flatten and spread on their own so if you don’t press them you’ll end up with a cookie ball that is raw in the middle:
Here they are on the cookie sheet just waiting to be baked!
