Ahead of time, take a Pyrex liquid measuring cup, and melt down the coconut oil and honey. Let it cool down a bit prior to combining into recipe as you do not want to accidentally cook your eggs!

Instructions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large stainless steel bowl, combine coconut oil, raw honey/nectar/sweetener, eggs, vanilla extract, and sea salt. Add in coconut flour. Stir in the shredded coconut and chocolate chips.

On parchment-lined baking sheets, drop heaping tablespoons of cookie batter. Due to the cooking process, these cookies do not expand a great deal, so be sure to form them into a ‘cookie shape’ as they will not expand like common cookies.

Bake until golden brown. I tend to start at 12 minutes with a timer and go from there. Every oven has a different calibration or internal temperature. I let these cook in our home kitchen for 15 minutes and they were perfect. Slightly toasted coconut exterior – a gorgeous golden brown. A mere 12 minutes in our home oven yielded soft and undercooked cookies. Let them cool and ‘set’ on a rack or tray prior to moving them.

The scent, smell, texture and taste of these cookies are wonderful. Even M likes them which says a lot. These have a wonderful consistency. They are not chewy but stay moist over time and do not crumble. They work well in both a cookie jar and in the fridge, but should be eaten within a few days.

  1. This looks wonderful! Thanks for sharing! I am vegan, so I have to make a few adjustments here and there, but its easy done! I just did a wonderful vegan gingerbread loaf last night if you're interested in such things….just swap the whole wheat pastry flour for spelt 🙂
