Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies – Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Giveaway

Coconut flour and coconut oil give these chewy chocolate chip cookies a delicious subtle coconut background flavor.Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies - The Lemon BowlIf you follow The Lemon Bowl on Facebook, you probably know I recently bought my first jar of coconut oil. Evidently there are hundreds of uses for coconut oil – from eye makeup remover to reducing stretch marks. Frankly? I’d rather just eat it. 😉

We’ve been gobbling it up all week and let me tell you, if you’ve never had an egg fried in coconut oil, you haven’t lived. Spread a little on toast and you’ve got a one way ticket to Flavor Town.  

As you can probably assume, I am also obsessed with health foods stores as well as Bob’s Red Mill.  During a recent venture, a bag of coconut flour forced it’s way into my cart along with 50 other things I needed. 😉

Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough - The Lemon Bowl

Full disclosure: baking frightens me but after recent success with my Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies made with almond flour, I decided to give it another go. Since I wanted to use coconut oil instead of butter, I decided to make them completely dairy free by using Enjoy Life mini chips which are both gluten and dairy free. And quite tasty, might I add!

To celebrate, my friends at Bob’s Red Mill have offered to give one reader a Gluten Free Prize Package containing their Top 10 gluten free products including: GF Muesli, GF Coconut Flour, GF Pizza Crust Mix, GF Brownie Mix, GF Vanilla Cake Mix, GF Quick Rolled Oats, GF Corn Grits, GF Flaxseed Meal, GF Organic Quinoa and GF Hearty Whole Grain Bread Mix.

Coconut flour and coconut oil give these chewy chocolate chip cookies a delicious subtle coconut background flavor.
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 24
  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees and line two baking sheets with silicone baking mats or non-stick spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs with melted coconut oil, date sugar, coconut milk, vanilla, and salt.
  3. Using a rubber spatula, stir in coconut flour and chocolate chips.
  4. Scoop cookies using two teaspoons or a small ice cream scoop evenly between two baking sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes or until browned.
  5. Let cookies cool completely before removing from pan.
Recipe adapted from This Chick Cooks.

If batter is too watery, let the coconut flour expand for 3-4 minutes and stir again with the rubber spatula.

Due to the coconut flour, it is important not over cook. Cookies should be soft when they come out at 12 minutes. Let rest for a minute before transfer to a cooling rack.

  1. Lauren M says

    I would love to try to bread mix! I have grand aspirations to make my own bread and this mix would be the perfect way to start. I bet the oats and muesli would add something fun to breakfast too. Love all Bob’s Red Mills-thanks for opportunity!

  2. Kristy says

    I love Bob’s Red Mill products and have been looking for a good reason to try the brownie mix!!! These cookies look amazing too!

  3. says

    I have recently started using coconut oil too and I wish I would have started sooner as it’s soooo amazing in baked goods (and as a moisturizer). I’ve never tried coconut flour but I just added it to my grocery list so that I can try these cookies.

  4. says

    I also get intimidated by baking, especially with new ingredients. I like the idea of using coconut oil (my Mom is really into using it lately so I think I am going to jump on the bandwagon) in cookies or baking in general. I can’t wait to try it out.

  5. Marcia says

    Well, you’ve sold me on the coconut flour…so that’s the one I’d like to try first!
    I admit to being a skeptic…..!!

  6. Marnely Rodriguez Murray says

    Oh we’ve tried the pizza crust and it’s DIVINE! I’d love to try the brownie mix!

  7. Elizabeth says

    Thanks for a wonderful give away! I’d love to try Bob’s pizza crust mix, as I can’t seem to replicate the good old days. LOL! Thank you!

  8. says

    Looking forward to the GF Bownie Mix. My son loves chocolate and especially brownies. He’s in the 11th grade and discussing career options, one of which is a chef. Perhaps he’ll be the next Dessert Iron Chef.

  9. leah says

    I would love to try the pizza crust mix! I have been craving pizza badly, but I’m currently trying to avoid gluten as a means of experimentation with my hyperthyroidism.

  10. says

    mmm I’m trying this as soon as I can get myself back to the store 😉

    I’ve never heard of Bob’s Red Mill but I’d LOVE to try the GF Muesli. I’m into making my own granola lately and that and the GF rolled oats would be a big help!

  11. Devra says

    I, too, would be most excited about the pizza crust. I am dying to make my own pizza at home, but the crust intimidates me too much.

  12. karri says

    So glad I found this recipe. My son was recently diagnosed as gluten intolerant. So any recipe I can find I am so willing to they. these sound amazing. can’t wait to they them. thanks foe the recipe.

  13. Lisa says

    I would love to try the coconut flour & pizza crust mix!
    BTW…I made 2 loaves of your blueberry oatmeal bread this week…so so SO good…new family fav for breakfast…and anytime! :) I made it with mixed berries, cuz that’s what had in the freezer…yum!

  14. Erin B says

    there’s this paleo bread I’ve been meaning to try and make, and it calls for coconut flour. yummm…

  15. gail says

    Luv the great Idea of Coconut flour,The ~ Coconut chocolat chip cookie recipe ~ sounds great cant wait to try it out!
    I follow you on Pinterest an facebook, you always have great Ideas.
    Thank you so much!

  16. Kate says

    Yes! Trying the pizza crust first sounds great! Pizza has been a weekly Saturday night tradition and still looking for the perfect GF sub.

  17. Diane Vandermast says

    The pizza crust mix gets my vote too!! I’ve bought many of Bob’s products, but have never seen that particular item. Yum – looking forward to winning. (Well, a positive attitude can’t hurt, right?)

  18. says

    I’m so glad to see this post. I visited Bob’s Red Mill while in Oregon in the fall and bought some Coconut Flour in bulk but have yet to use. I would love to try the Brownie Mix!

  19. Rachel says

    I would love to get the GF oats! I am gluten intolerant (not celiac) so I tend to cheat with non-GF oats, but I know they don’t make me feel the best! Awesome cookie recipe too!

    • Liz DellaCroce says

      I’m trying to remember…we made these awhile ago and honestly they didn’t last long!!! I do think they might have been on the softer side though. I think I like it though – haha.

  20. AMLC says

    I am most excited for the pizza crust. I live on an overseas military base and it’s hard to find great gluten free products. The few our store stocks sell out so fast!

  21. Angela B says

    I would love to try the Gf oats, I have tried and love most of the other items. Although I have yet to use the gf pizza dough for just that as it has many other multi purpose uses!

  22. Angela B says

    I follow you on Pinterest & enjoy your recipes. Can’t wait to try this one. I too love eggs cooked in coconut oil! (I like to saute spinach with it and have it with quinoa. LOVE coconut oil & its many uses! (Daily use aside of consuming; mixed with witchhazel as eye makeup remover. Hair deep conditioner, baby bottom, skin moisturizer, etc) FYI, Costco sells the big tubs of it.

    • Liz DellaCroce says

      Love the idea of sauteeing spinach!! Hair condition also sounds brilliant and delicious! We actually got our tub at Costco. :)

  23. Courtney M says

    I’m only 2 months into my clean eating journey and have never tried any of the above items. I’m really interested in the Pizza Crust Mix!

  24. Jeffrey says

    I really would like to try the GF Muesli! I agree, the pizza crust sounds good but I have my own recipe that took me a very long time to perfect (according to my tastebuds)!

  25. says

    Love this one, Liz! I’ve been playing around with coconut flour and I’m delighted to see your chocolate chip cookies. I can’t wait to bake a batch! And I agree about coconut oil…once I started using it I never looked back. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!

  26. Dan says

    I am really looking forward to the GF Pizza Crust Mix. My Favorite thing is Pizza and a healthier version is always a good thing.

  27. says

    The cookies look great–I’m happy to learn a brand name of a dairy free chocolate chip so I can make cookies safe for my neighbor’s son who has a dairy allergy. I’ve been ok swapping shortening for butter and using cocoa powder, but I wanted to make a chocolate chip cookie and this will do fine.

    Thanks for the giveaway–I’ve sent the link on to my friends who eat gluten free (please don’t enter me in the giveaway).

  28. Christie says

    Brownie mix!!! I would love some good gluten free brownies :) Pizza crust would be great too… I haven’t figured that one out yet. Really all of it sounds good and would be such a blessing to try!

  29. JoAnn Estrada says

    I love baking and have always wanted to make my own pizza. I would love to try the pizza crust mix!!!

  30. Cee says

    I’d have to try the pizza crust, as you’ve mentioned. I have never made a good pizza crust. Usually, my family will sort of push through it, and at least eat the pizza, so I’d love to have a really good crust!

  31. Maggie Wallace says

    I would love to try the pizza crust mix! One of my favorite things to make is pizza and coming up with new ideas!! Will be making these cookies for sure! Can’t wait! Love Bob’s Red Mill’s products!!

  32. Valerie says

    I can’t wait to try the coconut flour to make this recipe! Liz constantly inspires me to branch out and try delicious new things while keeping quality ingredients and health a priority!

  33. Karen says

    Tried the gf brownies tonight and my son loved them. Would love to try the gl vanilla cake mix. Can’ wait to try your recipe for cc cookies.

  34. Leena says

    I would loooooove to win that prize package & try the pizza crust mix!!! Just came off a cleanse & desperately craving pizza – haha!

  35. says

    I would love to try baking with their GF Coconut Flour, but I’m also curious about the Muesli just because I love Bob’s Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal and recently read about the muesli – hoping it is as good as the MTHC!

  36. Samantha M. says

    I was so excited to see this giveaway!! I can’t wait to try the brownie mix and cake mix. I have been wanting to try these!!

  37. Michelle Head says

    Coconut oil is my new friend!! I can’t to try the bread mix. It’s always interesting to try new bread recipes.

  38. Susan says

    I would love to try the coconut flour. I use several Bob’s Red Mill products when I can find them here in Meridian, MS. I have several family members who visit and they have issues with gluten so I cook with gf flours and mixes.
    Thanks for the recipes.

  39. April says

    SO excited to try these! They are in the oven as I type this… not that I tried… lol but the batter was delish. First time ever baking with coconut flour so we’ll see. Subscribed to your emails.

  40. April says

    PS – these were a hit!! Thank you so much! They have a neat texture to them and the flavour was perfect.

  41. Lori A. says

    I’d love to try the coconut flour, especially to try making this recipe… (I already have the coconut oil and coconut milk…) Though it’s been SO long since I’ve had pizza, that the pizza crust would be pretty wonderful too !… 😀

  42. Melissa Bowlby says

    I can’t wait to try the muesli! I just finished reading a book (a hilarious romantic comedy) where a guy fell in love with a girl for the muesli she made. Apparently I’ve lived under a shell for my whole life, but I’d never even heard of muesli – much less tried it before. Love Bob’s coconut and almond flours, so I’m sure the muesli will be a hit too!

  43. Beth F says

    My husband would want me to say the pizza crust for sure! He’s been looking for a great pizza for almost two years!

  44. Gerry says

    Oh oh. Ours turned out wet looking. What’d we do wrong? O, and we used brown sugar, we didn’t have date sugar. Could that be it? Btw, we’re Super new (amateur) bakers/cookers. Gerry and T

    • Liz DellaCroce says

      Hmmm….as in under cooked wet looking or wet looking in that they didn’t hold together? Coconut flour is a bit tricky. Let me know and I can try to help you pin point!

  45. Sue says

    What would you do to make the batter itself chocolate flavored? How much coco powder, and then how much liquid to compensate for the extra dry ingredient?

  46. Michelle says

    This recipe had too many wet items. We cooked a few sample cookies and they flopped in the air like rubber, but tasted good.
    So we added 1/2c buckwheat flour, and another 1/4c. Chocolate chips.
    The time required for each batch, regardless was 15minutes on a baking stone.

    • Liz DellaCroce says

      Wow I’m so sorry to hear that Michelle!! We made a huge batch and ate them all within a day or so. I love that you improvised with buckwheat flour!

    • Dawn N. says

      re too wet: You have to let the coconut flour expand for 3-4 minutes and give a couple of strokes with the rubber spatula.

      re rubbery: do not over cook or they turn to rubber. they will be soft when they come out at 12 minutes, let them rest a minute and transfer to a cooling rack.

      Yum! 😀

      • Liz DellaCroce says

        Thank you so much for this helpful feedback!! I’m going to update the recipe so others know to let the flour sit a bit. Thank you thank you!!!

  47. leena says

    ques about the coconut flour chocolate chip cookie recipe.. should the eggs & melted coconut oil be whisked together first before adding the other ingredients, or does that matter? thanks!

  48. Chanelle says

    I am not sure what the problem is but I followed the recipe exactly and all I got was a super runny bowl of cookie dough. I had to add another 1/4 cup of coconut flour just to get a thick dough-like consistency. They have been in the oven for 15 mins and they are still mushy and uncooked. Is there some secret to cooking with coconut products I am not getting? If someone could give me some pointers that would be great, but if this is really how the recipe is supposed to be then I am slightly disappointed.

    • Liz DellaCroce says

      Oh no… I’m so sorry to hear that Chanelle. One quick question so that I can try to pinpoint the problem – did your dough ever look like mine in the photo where I’m adding the chocolate chips? As you can see, my dough was not runny at all. We will get to the bottom of this!

      • tangie says

        mine was a bit runny as well ~ the batter did not look like your pic at all, but they still baked up edible. does it have anything to do with how long to whisk up the wet ingredients or stir in the coconut flour? when I first put in the coconut flour, I really thought it wasn’t enough flour & kept checking the recipe thinking I had read it wrong, but it began to firm up the more I stirred (though again, never getting as pretty as yours :))

        • Liz DellaCroce says

          Ok I’m going to work on this recipe again and make sure the measurements are all the same! I’m so sorry that the batter didn’t look like mine. So bizarre but I want to get to the bottom of it. :) Stay tuned ok?

  49. Linsey says

    This is my first attempt using coconut flour and I also had a problem with super runny dough. So, I turned away from it and started looking at the comments to see if anybody had any tips. After deciding to put more flour in, I turned around and it had thickend right up! I think that maybe I just needed to give the flour a couple of minutes to soak everything up. I think I will still add about a tablespoon more flour, but it doesn’t need any more than that after a few minutes of sit time. :)

    • Liz DellaCroce says

      Thank you for the update Linsey! That’s very interesting??? I’m going to re-do this recipe as soon as I have a minute to try and find out the glitch. Appreciate your helpful feedback!

      • Linsey says

        Sure! I ate two with my breakfast this morning. :) They were delicious! Thank you for the great recipe.

  50. tiff says

    The only thing I will add to this is you have to make the batter quickly or the coconut oil will harden again and then it just turns into chunks in your batter.

  51. Leng says

    Hi im making this now. And the cookies are in the oven bit its not spreading. I used an ice crea scooper and followed the recipe but its like a ball still. Do i need to flaten it? Help!

  52. Melissa says

    Newly diagnosed food intolrerances with 2 of my kids has made my cooking for a family of 5 a nightmare. I can’t bake with almond flour because I can’t send it to the kids nut free school. This recipe is so easy and awesome. It is one that my whole family enjoys, thanks for sharing:)

    • Denise says

      LOL! Mine was completely opposite! Runny really really bad. It still tastes good but I will try another recipe next time :)

      • Liz DellaCroce says

        I can’t figure out why it was runny – as you can see in my photo the batter was not runny!! I’m going to work on this again and update the recipe. Forgive me!

  53. Jessy says

    Do you think I could substitute date sugar for something else? I haven’t been able to find it anywhere!

  54. Denise says

    I just tried this and it came out all runny :( It was so liquidy that I had to add more coconut flour otherwise it was just soup. I followed the directions as well so I don’t know what went wrong. Tastes good tho!

    • Liz DellaCroce says

      I am so sorry to hear this Denise!! I’m going to work on this recipe to find out what the problem is for others. As you can see in my photo – the batter is not at all runny. Thank you for letting me know – I so appreciate the feedback!!

  55. George T says

    I reduce the coconut milk by half, I had read in another article online about using coconut flour, that when using melted fat (coconut oil) to reduce the liquid by half. I tried both ways as written above and reducing the liquids and I preferred the texture of the reduced liquid option. Great recipe either way. Thanks!

  56. Debbie M. says

    OMG….love this recipe. I used coconut sugar instead of date sugar. Next time I will use less coconut milk to see what the consistency is like, but really like this cakey consistency. This is as close as I’m going to get to any white flour recipe. I’m a happy camper today!!!

  57. Destiny says

    My cookies turned out flat… I ended up with a cookie sheet sized thin cookie..! I followed the instructions. Any suggestions?

  58. Sam says

    OMG!!! These cookies were amazing!!! As good as wheat flour cookies!! My sister couldn’t believe that they were made out of coconut flour. She absolutely loved them too. My family really enjoyed these. Thx so much further recipe!!! I have tried many other coconut flour revipes and this is by far the best!!!
