Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies, cookies I do see. Cookies, cookies 1, 2, 3. Let's have cookies for you and me! Okay, I know, that sounds a bit like a cheesy nursery rhyme. But whenever I find a fun, delicious new cookie recipe, I get really, REALLY excited! So you can imagine how excited I am for today's recipe.

With the New Year here, many of us are looking for a healthy alternative to the snacks we have come to love so much in our lives. This is one of those snacks! Not only is it completely grain, gluten, egg, and nut free, it's low in sugar, and, if prepared without chocolate chips, could qualify as a dairy-free snack as well. Oh, and it tastes so, so good! Let's get to it, shall we? Grab your favorite mixing spoon, it's time for some Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies!

1/3 cup Honeyville Organic Coconut Flour
1/4 cup Organic Coconut Oil
1/4 cup Maple Syrup
1 tsp Vanilla
Pinch of Salt
1 Tbsp Ultra Gel
3 Tbsp Water
1/4 cup Chocolate Chips

Yields: 9 cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, coconut oil, syrup, vanilla, and salt. Next, add the ultra gel and water and mix until a thick dough forms.


Once dough is formed, delicately fold in chocolate chips until fully combined.


On your USA Pan Cookie Sheet, lined with parchment paper, take about a Tbsp sized ball of dough and shape like a cookie, then lay on sheet (cookies will not spread much when baked).


Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes, or until outsides turn a slight golden brown. Remove and allow to cool on baking sheet before serving.


These cookies are the perfect snack you need to keep your healthy New Years Resolution going strong! Not only are the simple to make and bake, their taste is out of this world! Packed full of delicious flavor and texture, you don't have to feel guilty about enjoying these cookies!


Cookies, cookies I do see! It's time to enjoy cookies, both you and me!

Don't have the gel, how can I substitute corn starch or arrowroot powder for it ? Thank You.

Hi Terissa! You can substitute cornstarch directly for Ultra gel. Great question!

@ Terissa. Ultra gel rocks! You need to try it out if you can, it really improves texture. Thank you Honeyville for the great recipe. Please do more with the gel if possible.

Terissa, can I sub honey for maple syrup?

I made these and they were inedible. They smelled wonderful but were very dense and pasty. I used honey instead of maple syrup and cornstarch instead of ultra gel. it's as if they needed baking powder. I didn't care for the honey flavor...too strong. Maybe I'll try again with Baking powder. And sugar.

It's amazing how a few ingredient substitutes can completely change a product. I'd suggest sticking with Ultra Gel and Maple Syrup for this recipe to get the best results!
