There was once a time when I ate three cookies before 11 am. It was just one of those days. And I had not had a cookie in forever. Which probably isn't 100% true but I like to be dramatic every once in a while.
I like to give baked goods as gifts. After receiving all sorts of baby clothes and toys from a family I wanted to send a baked thank you. I was challenged by the fact that one one of the daughters has Celiac disease. Not wanting to simply get gluten free flour I researched some recipes for coconut flour.
After finding what seemed like a winner I whipped it up. Of course you cannot just hand over cookies without out tasting them first so I tested one out.
And then tested a few more.
Mr. J doesn't think they are cookies and no if you want a tried and true chocolate chip cookies these will be a disappointment. However they are good, especially if you like coconut. I wouldn't recommend eating three at once. You might get a stomach ache. Consider yourself warned.
Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Keywords: bake dessert gluten-free cookie
Ingredients (8 cookies)
- 1/3 cup coconut flour (use extra if required)
- 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
- 2 whole eggs
- 1/4 cup organic, cold-pressed virgin coconut oil
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of sea salt
Preheat your oven to 350F.
Grease a baking tray or line it with baking paper.
Mix the coconut flour, salt, eggs, coconut oil, honey, and vanilla extract together thoroughly with a whisk. Continue whisking until the mixture changes consistency from runny to slightly thicker as the coconut flour begins to soak up the moisture from the wet ingredients. (If the mixture is still runny after some time add a small amount of extra coconut flour until the right consistency is achieved.)
Add in chocolate chips until they are evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.
Use a tablespoon to portion out the cookie dough onto your baking tray.
Pat down the cookie rounds with to form them into the shape you desire (the mixture will not spread out). I left mine in rounds to have a more doughy center.
Place your cookies into the center of the oven and bake for around 10-15 minutes, depending on the texture you want. I removed mine after 12 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes if you have one.
