Chocolate Chip Coconut Flour Cookies (Paleo)


Everyone loves a chocolate chip cookie. Unfortunately... chocolate chip cookies won't always love you back! (but these ones will) ;)

There's nothing better than warm chocolate chip cookies, fresh out of the oven, that taste amazing & are great for you. This recipe contains no dairy, gluten, grains, nuts, refined sugars, or soy; so it's super clean and Paleo-friendly.

Like many people I've served these to, you're probably wondering, "No butter, sugar, flour, etc.? What's left?!"........ All the good-for-you stuff, that's what! Coconut, eggs, & some simple chocolate chips.

I have served these to fellow Paleo eaters, as well as traditional flour & sugar loving people~ They all loved them! I recently revamped the recipe, & these cookies are now extra moist and super decadent. Let me know if you test them out... I promise you are going to love this soft, chewy treat!

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do... This recipe is so simple & definitely worth a try :)

Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup + 2 Tbsp coconut flour 
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut milk 
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips (I recommend the "Enjoy Life" brand)

Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the coconut sugar & wet ingredients (coconut oil, coconut milk, eggs, & vanilla).
  3. Add the remaining dry ingredients & chocolate chips, and stir until fully mixed.
  4. Scoop the cookie dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I used a cookie scoop. You can use the bottom of a measuring cup to flatten the tops a bit if you want thinner cookies, just keep in mind that they will spread while baking.
  5. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until slightly firm to the touch.
*Makes about 12 large cookies.

Hi Jessie,

This is a wonderful recipe! I wasn't too sure how the cookies would taste using coconut flour, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's my second time making these cookies and they're so good it makes me feel like I'm cheating on my Paleo diet. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us.
