Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

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.

Here’s some pictures of the process – the recipe is at the very bottom.

This is what the dough should look like – kind of like play dough, right?  It’s a little crumbly but just press it together and the cookies will come out fine:

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!

Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. Mix the coconut oil, sugar, vanilla, eggs and salt well.
  3. Add in the coconut flour a little at a time. Mix well.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips (if you want to be super healthy, use sun spire grain sweetened chips instead)
  5. The dough will be like play dough that dried out a little bit. Roll it into tablespoon sized balls and place the balls on a cookie sheet (I put parchment paper down on mine first).
  6. Flatten the balls out with your fingers. This dough will not flatten or spread on it's own so don't skip this part! If you want your cookies to be all pretty and even, then you can press them carefully and make the edges even.
  7. I'm more interested in just eating mine, so I mash them down quickly because the sooner I get them in the oven, the sooner I can get them out and eat them. The result is the uneven edges you see in the picture.
  8. Bake for 8 - 12 minutes.
