Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

mmmmm... cookies... mmmmmmm mmmmmm.... chocolate CHIP cookies. No wheat flour. YAYAYAYAAY  I'm getting to like coconut flour pretty well.

I found this recipe from Paleohacks and had to try it, of course!!  I love chocolate chip cookies!

Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies - Paleohacks

1/3 C coconut flour (use extra if required)
1/3 C dark chocolate chips
pinch of sea salt
2 whole eggs
1/4 C coconut oil
1/4 C raw honey
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.

Mix the coconut flour, salt, eggs, coconut oil, honey, and vanilla together thoroughly with a whisk.

Throw in your chocolate chips (stop eating them!) and make sure they're evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.

Use a tablespoon or dessert spoon to portion out the cookie dough onto your baking sheet. Pat down.

Place your cookies into the center of the oven and bake for around 10 - 15 minutes, depending on the texture you want. If this is your first time baking with coconut flour, then aim for around 12 minutes and check to make sure the outsides of your cookies have turned an inviting golden brown color.

Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

And they are delicious. Even with the modifications I used. I've cut out sugar in my diet to almost non-existent; which is a good thing! Yes... there are sugars I get in some stuff, but I have cut drastically back on sugar. So... my chocolate chips were raw cacao nibs, no sugar in them. And for the 1/4 C honey, I used half that amount and 3/4 tsp liquid stevia to make the other 1/8th cup.

Now, just an aside.... when putting in the coconut oil, you do want it melted, or darn near melted. You might want to have your eggs at room temperature and I use a sifter for my coconut flour because it just really gets lumpy on my and it's hard to get the lumps out (they hide), so...sift the coconut flour. And... speaking from experience here... when adding all your ingredients to the bowl, don't let the soft/melted coconut oil sit around with cold eggs while searching for ingredients and adding them... and if you DO happen to do that... well.... Oh... and don't use a whisk. I had to take a wooden spoon to get the dough that was inside all the way to the top of the whisk out. Wasn't so very hard, just not a necessary move and I kinda made a mess with it. So... no more whisk for me.  LOL

Very good cookies!
