    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 with coconut flour. 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!

    If you’ve never worked with coconut flour before, it’s important to note that coconut flour is very absorbent which is why very little is needed to make a large batch of cookies. I always notice that if the batter sits for a few minutes, it immediately firms up as the coconut flour absorbs the liquid.

    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. Hi! I am a huge fan of your almond flour muffin recipes! They are absolutely delicious!….and as someone who can’t have a lot of carbs…I truly appreciate it even more!
      I wanted to know if butter could be used in place of the coconut oil….? I have all of the ingredients on hand, except for coconut oil (and date sugar). Also, could honey be used in place of the date sugar?

    2. I have friends who are allergic to gluten, dairy, and eggs. I’d love to make this for them and use a substitute for the eggs. Any ideas? I’ve heard chia is an option but haven’t tried it.

    3. I loved this recipe! To fix the runny batter issue I added double the flour or you could lessen the milk. Adjust to your liking of course!
      There were no chocolate chips in the house so I added two good squirts of lemon juice – very yummy!

    4. 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!!!
