How I spent my Saturday, pt 1: coconut flour chocolate chip cookies!

Between the egg hunt at the farmers' market, dying eggs with homemade dyes (post w/pics coming), baking a ginger-peachy pie, making these cookies & then making dinner, I am wiped out. Here is the recipe for just the cookies. Expect other recipes in the coming week. Enjoy!

Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 C coconut flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 C solid oil (palm shortening, coconut oil, butter)
1/2 C sugar - I used turbinado sugar
1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract
6 eggs
1/2 C shredded coconut flakes, unsweetened
3/4 C mini chocolate chips - I used Enjoy Life since they are allergy-friendly.

Preheat oven to 375*F.

* Cream shortening & sugar. Add vanilla.

* Add eggs & mix well.

* In a separate bowl, mix coconut flour & sea salt. Add to bowl and mix very well. I either use my stand mixer or a whisk and whisk until the batter is very smooth. The coconut flour likes to clump.

* Fold in shredded coconut & chocolate chips.

* Bake for ~10min on a greased cookie sheet.


  1. These sound delicious, I LOVE coconut and chocolate. LOVE!

  2. very yummy. i think i might decrease the recipe down to five eggs? or increase the coconut flour to 1 full cup. They were just a little bit cakey. Oh darn, I'll have to make them again to see.
