Cookies/ Gluten Free/ Low Carb/ Paleo

Coconut and Chocolate Chip Cookies (Coconut Flour and Gluten Free)

These cookies are better cold than straight of the oven which is unusal for a cookie in my book!  This is for coconut lovers and gives you a lovely low carb, gluten free cookie full of coconut goodness.  These cookies are great for a Paleo diet too!

As I am currently having a play with the joy that is coconut nectar I used this for the sweetner element of the cookie.  You could use erythritol instead though.   One thing to point out is that these cookies do not spread out whilst cooking so you need to make them into cookie shapes when placing them onto the baking tray.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup coconut flour

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

1/2 cup coconut nectar (or other sugar subsistute)

1/2 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut

1/2 tspn vanilla extract

4 eggs

1/8 tspn salt

3/4 cup chocolate chips

METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 190C/375F degrees.
  • Mix the coconut oil, coconut nectar, vanilla, eggs and salt.  Blend well.
  • Add the coconut flour, desiccated coconut and chocolate chips.
  • Form into cookie shapes and place onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.
  • Bake for 15 minutes until golden.
  • Cool, eat and enjoy!

    Where do you get coconut flour? I don’t seem to have come across them – or may be I wasn’t aware hence didn’t tune my senses to it.

      The UK sells it in Holland and Barret Health shops….failing that, try Amazon…speedy delivery (I order my Almond Flour in bulk from there too!)

        And you can use this flour as a substitute for normal flour?

          Yes, I bake with coconut flour and almond flour (which is just ground almonds really). Both are great, although coconut flour is very absorbent and needs a lot of liquid. It may be expensive at first, but you do use a lot less of it in recipes.

            Thanks Angie for sharing this. I have used Almond flour before but never Coconut flour! Will try for sure. My li’l one has got wheat allergy, so this might be a fantastic option.

            Forget to mention, that in Dubai, you can buy coconut flour from the Organic Food shop and Geant in Ibn Battuta too!
