Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Mix almond flour, shredded coconut, and coconut flour together in a bowl.

  • Beat egg in a large bowl. Beat almond butter, honey, coconut oil, and vanilla extract into the egg until dough is smooth.

  • Stir chocolate chips into dough and mix until just combined. Scoop dough into walnut-sized balls and place 1-inch apart onto ungreased baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Cookies will retain their round shape; they will not melt down like regular cookies. Keeping the shape round keeps them soft on the inside.

I am a huge Paleo follower and I've been longing for a healthy chocolate chip cookie recipe. This recipe nailed it! I used all the ingredients except instead of using the dark chocolate chips I substituted a bar and a half of 85% dark chocolate bars. I used the end of a screwdriver to break up the bar into very small pieces. I was afraid my cookies would stick to the baking sheet so I sprayed some olive oil on it. I am so happy to have come across this recipe - delicious! Read More

The dough was very hard to work with and the chocolate chips would not stick in the cookies. I finally made it into one big pan cookie with the chips on top and it worked out ok. Read More

My husband is a severe critic of anything with coconut flour in it. These cookies surprised both me and my husband and we enjoyed them very much! No water needed. I did refrigerate them for about an hour before baking them so they would be a little more firm to roll into balls. I do need to say that I halved the recipe (12 servings) and found that the amount of chocolate chips indicated for this amount (1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp) was way too much...I couldn't get them all to mix into the dough. Next time I will not add the extra 2 Tbsp if I make that batch size again. 10 minutes was a good time they were firm on the outside and very soft on the inside. Next time I might cook them for only 8 minutes to have an even softer outer.:) Read More

I Tried some with vanilla and they were too bland. They definitely need almond extract. In another batch I added walnuts and a bit of chopped raisins. These were keepers:-) With the additions they rate 5 stars. Read More

Dough was very stiff so I added 2 TBS coconut milk. Also used 1 TBS maple syrup to increase sweetness. My husband REALLY liked these. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

Not a fan. Dough was stiff and bland. I had to add some coconut milk to make it workable and a bit of maple syrup to make them a tad sweeter. I will not make again. There's a bunch of Paleo cookie recipes out there that are easier and tastier. Read More

Specialty flour is expensive and I m cheap. I replaced the 2 cup flour 1/3 cup coconut flour and 2/3 cup coconut flakes with 1 1/2 cup finely food processor-ed quick oats and 1 1/2 cup regular quick oats. It was easier to work with. I added some baking powder and they even puffed out a bit! Read More

The batter was the best I've tried so far! I used Maple Syrup (same amount) instead of honey. I only had unsweetened chocolate and no matter what I did the chocolate did not taste good so I skipped it. (I don't eat sugar). The cookies without the chocolate were great. I can't wait to try them with good chocolate! Read More

These cookies are surprisingly good. I added about two teaspoons of water to hold dough together. They are substantial enough that I don't eat too many at one sitting. I may try adding walnuts next time. Really great! Read More
