Coconut and chocolate, one of the best flavors out there...


A quick and easy cookie recipe

I love cookies! I first made this recipe a year ago and was so surprised that without eggs and butter, they turned out so incredible.


Ingredients in coconut cookies

This recipe uses simple ingredients that one would already have in their pantry.

Use all-purpose flour for best results, combined with coconut. I'm pretty sure that coconut flour will work too, however I think the coconut flavor might be too heavy! Oat flour should work too here.

You can use coconut sugar or light brown sugar.

I have not tried using other oils in this recipe, I suggest sticking to the coconut oil here.

Use a flax egg for best results.

Tools you will need to make this

You don’t really need much to make this and you can easily use what you already have on hand.

You will need:

  • Baking tray lined with parchment paper
  • 2 mixing bowls
  • Whisk to mix

For measuring: 1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1 tbsp, 1/4 cup, 1 cup.
