Coconut flour chocolate chip cookies
While many coconut flour cookie recipes must add other flours, starch, or nut butter to hold the cookies together, these are different because they’re made with ONLY coconut flour.
No almond flour, no tapioca flour, no white flour.
Throw in a handful of chocolate chips or sugar free chocolate chips to make chocolate chip cookies, or leave the chips out for coconut shortbread cookies or sugar cookies.

What is coconut flour?
Dried coconut is the only ingredient in coconut flour, and it’s finely ground until it resembles the texture of wheat flour but contains no gluten.
Coconut flour is very high in fiber and also contains potassium, iron, and 3 grams of protein in just 2 tbsp.
It absorbs liquid like a sponge and therefore can almost never be used as an equal substitution in baked goods calling for other flours, so it’s best to find recipes that specifically call for it instead of trying to substitute coconut flour for almond flour or all purpose flour.
Can I use a different flour in the cookies?
This recipe has only been tested with coconut flour, so use one of the following recipes instead if you’d prefer to use a different flour:
For almond flour cookies, make these Keto Cookies.
For oat flour cookies, make these Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies.
For cookies with spelt or white flour, make these Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies.
How to make coconut flour cookies
Start by measuring out your ingredients.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit, and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. (If using a silicon baking mat, you can skip the parchment.)
In a mixing bowl, stir everything together to form a cookie dough, then roll the dough into balls. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
The cookies don’t flatten on their own, so I like to press them down into cookie shapes before baking. If you prefer cookie balls, this step isn’t required.
Cook on the oven center rack for 22 minutes. They will still look soft and undercooked when you remove them from the oven, so let the coconut cookies cool completely, during which time they will firm up considerably.
*For vegan coconut flour cookies, flax eggs do work here. Just be sure to whip up the flax eggs and give them time to sit and fully gel before proceeding with the next steps of the recipe.

Coconut Flour Cookies
- Preheat oven to 325 F. Stir all ingredients together in a mixing bowl. It will look very liquidy at first, so keep stirring until it suddenly thickens into cookie dough. Roll into balls, smush into cookie shapes, then bake 22 minutes on a lined cookie sheet on the oven’s center rack. They will be very delicate when you take them out of the oven, so let the cookies cool completely and they firm up as they cool.
