another (raw) coconut cookie recipe

Raw Maple-Cinnamon Coconut Cookies (Vegan, GF)

2 cups shredded coconut (I re-hydrated mine by soaking for a few hours because it was really hard, if you have softer coconut you probably don't need to soak)
6 tbsp coconut flour
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp maple syrup (for truly raw, you could sub agave or raw honey)
1 tsp vanilla extract (for truly raw, sub dried vanilla bean powder)
4 tbsp melted coconut oil

Maple-Cinnamon Icing:
1/4 cup packed dates
2 tbsp maple syrup (truly raw, sub agave or raw honey)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp coconut oil
Water to thin

Combine all ingredients for cookies. Roll into balls, place on a wax-paper lined flat surface and press into a round cookie shape. Combine ingredients for glaze in a food processor. Pipe onto cookies. Freeze until hardened. Makes 20 cookies.

Egg-free, nut-free, grain-free coconut flour cookies

Experimental cookies finally turned out!

Egg-free, nut-free, grain-free coconut flour cookies

1/4C coconut flour
3tbsp chia seed meal (i.e. chia seeds ground up in the coffee grinder) + 9tbsp warm water
1/4C coconut oil, melted
3tbsp maple syrup (more if you like things sweeter)
1tbsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt

In a small bowl, mix chia meal and watwe, stir and let gel. Set aside.

Mix maple syrup and coconut oil. Add chia gel. Add coconut flour, cinnamon & salt.

You should get a fairly workable dough at this point. I scooped out cookies with a 1/2tbsp measuring spoon. I rolled the dough into balls and then flattened them on the cookie sheet. I got ~28 cookies out of my batch.

Bake at 350*F for oh... I lost track of time. Maybe 30-45-60 minutes? Check on them and see. I used a silicon baking mat on a cookie sheet. Once they were browned on the bottom and sort of firm on the edges I brought them out to cool on a wire rack. I think if you use parchment paper your baking time will be different anyway.

Good luck!
