Gluten Free chocolate chip cookies

Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies – gluten free!

I was sent this recipe by reader Katy – thanks!  Not sure of the source on this. These use my beloved coconut flour!  Very easy to make and just a few ingredients.  Don’t you love those type? I cut it in half so I wouldn’t have too many cookies in the house.

I also used mini chocolate chips for more surface area ratio in the cookies, I also changed the amounts of the add ins.

Ingredients:

  • 66 grams coconut flour (1/2 cup)
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 54 grams mini chips (1/3 cup)
  • 28 g (1/4 cup) dried coconut

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment or a silicone sheet.

In a small bowl, mix the eggs and melted butter with the brown sugar, vanilla, and salt.

Sift the coconut flour into the wet mix (to prevent lumps):

add in the mini chips and coconut.

Stir well to combine.  It may seem really liquidy at first, but remember coconut flour is super absorbent.

I let my bowl sit for several minutes and voila – dough!

Use a spoon, drop rounded tablespoons onto the baking sheet.  I got 14 out of this mixture, but you can do whatever size you want.

My thumb is there for size purposes, although I could also be giving an A-Okay sign if you like.

Bake at 375 for 14 minutes until the tops are lightly browned.


Nutrition per cookie (with 14 per batch):

132 calories, fat: 6.8 g, carbs: 15.5 g, fiber 3 g,  protein 2.5 g

These are very tasty and moist.

Thoughts: You can probably lighten these up with using egg whites.  Maybe applesauce instead of butter, but that would give a more cake-like texture.  I think I would also try chilling the dough and the rolling it into balls, then flattening the balls before baking.  The dough stayed in the exact shape I dropped it into on the cookie sheet.

Let me know if you try these do any changes to the recipe and I can add it here.

Enjoy!

      I love how simple this is. A lot of GF recipes are complicated and have too many ingredients to hold my interest.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe.I have a friend who is gluten free but also egg free. Even so I can tinker with this recipe and come up with something she could eat. I have come across a few recipes lately that call for coconut flour and it sounds so interesting to bake with.

    Thx Lori!!! I will most likely try the subs you mentioned. 😉 I actually made some muffins yesterday with coconut flour & will be posting next week. I changed a recipe from NuNaturals that had soy flour in it. I made my “own thing. Will let you know when I try yours – I have muffins coming out my ears right now! 😉 They are DELISH too – wish I had not made them cause having trouble not eating them!
