I have more coconut flour than I really know what to use it for……. so I decided to try cookies.
Gluten free cookies that mimic the wheat flour ones don’t taste the same…. flour for flour, so additional flavorings and touch-ups are needed.
I often add shredded coconut to oatmeal or chocolate chip cookies to give them that little oomph.
So here goes the recipe….enjoy!
Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies
1/4 cup Coconut Flour, sifted
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1 pinch salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup Stevia blend (Pyure)
1/4 cup Coconut sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Whisk the eggs, butter, sweeteners and extract until blended.
Whisk in the coconut, then the combined Dry Ingredients
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Drop batter in spoon-sized mounds 1 inch apart on parchment paper covered baking sheet.
Bake in preheated 350F oven for about 10 minutes or until bottoms are beginning to brown
Remove from cookie sheet using a lifter to a wire rack.
Optionally drizzle with melted chocolate
