Pinterest Review-Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hey guys. I haven’t been posting as often because these NHL playoffs are intense! Here’s a late night Pinterest review of some cookies I baked during the game.

I’m always looking for somewhat healthier versions of cookies for my little girl. These ones were great. They are gluten free, dairy free, egg free and refined sugar free.

First mix the wet ingredients; honey, vanilla, and coconut oil. Then add the salt. I just mixed it with a spoon in a small bowl. This batch only makes about 12 cookies.

Next add the dry ingredients minus the chocolate chips; baking soda, coconut flour, and almond flour. Mix it together then you can add the chocolate chips.

After it’s all mixed together let it sit for about 10 minutes. This allows the coconut flour to absorb the moisture. Next scoop the dough on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Scoop about 1 1/2 tsp portions onto the sheet. Flatten the cookies a bit with the back of your spoon as they don’t spread out like normal cookies.

Bake for 12 minutes and then let cool before transferring to a cooling rack.

I was a little skeptical of this cookie. I mean gluten, dairy, egg, refined sugar free usually means taste free haha I was surprised at how well they turned out! They were soft and chewy with that subtle coconut sweetness. And they had a little crunch to them, not sure if that was on purpose or if it’s because I forgot about them and cooked them 2 minutes longer than I was supposed to. Either way they tasted great!
