Chocolate Coconut Flour Cookies

I count this as progress… my husband has been eating cookies that are GAPS legal!

I nervously baked up a batch a few nights ago, because he has such a sugar addiction I wasn’t sure if he would go for these.  But he likes them!

After he deemed them acceptable, I wondered if the dough would be stiff enough to use with my cookie press and it was!  I am so happy about that.  I love using a cookie press. I have such fond memories of my mother using one when I was growing up, making Christmas cookies.

This recipe is based on the one I found at Tiana Coconut Flour.  My ingredients are slightly different since the original recipe called for sugar, and I needed to use honey.  You can find a printable recipe below this one.

Chocolate Coconut Flour Cookies

  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons Bob’s Red Mill Coconut Flour
  • 1/2 cup butter or coconut oil
  • 2/3 cup cacao or cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350°F. Add honey and butter together in a small pan and heat until warm and melted.  Measure all other ingredients into a bowl.  When honey and butter are melted, pour into the bowl.  Beat with a mixer until well blended.  Allow to set for five minutes to allow coconut flour to absorb and thicken.   After you allow the dough to sit for five minutes, cover and refrigerate for 30-60 minutes.  When the dough is chilled, remove and spoon into the cookie press.  I tried several shapes, but the snowflakes that you see above came out best.  Do *not* grease the cookie sheet if you are using the cookie press.  The dough must “grab” onto the cookie sheet from the cookie press, if it is greased it will not stick and break away from the dough remaining in the cookie press. This made 44 snowflakes.  For each tiny snowflake: 45 calories, 1 gram protein, 3 grams fat, 6 grams carbohydrates, 1 gram fiber.

Bake 6 minutes.

Tomorrow I’ll share the chocolate coconut cream fluff “dip” that I make for my husband to dip his cookies.

These soft chocolate cookies are delightful bites of bliss. This is the cookie press version. If you don’t have a cookie press, follow the other recipe.
Ingredients
  • ½ cup + 2 Tablespoons Bob’s Red Mill Coconut Flour
  • ½ cup butter or coconut oil
  • ⅔ cup cacao or cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅔ cup honey
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Add honey and butter together in a small pan and heat until warm and melted.
  3. Measure all other ingredients into a separate bowl.
  4. Pour honey and butter mixture into the separate bowl.
  5. Beat with a mixer until well blended.
  6. Allow to set for five minutes to allow coconut flour to absorb and thicken.
  7. Cover and refrigerate for 30-60 minutes.
  8. When the dough is chilled, remove and spoon into the cookie press. I tried several shapes, but the snowflakes that you see above came out best.
  9. Do *not* grease the cookie sheet if you are using the cookie press. The dough must “grab” onto the cookie sheet from the cookie press, if it is greased it will not stick and break away from the dough remaining in the cookie press.

Notes
Please note if you use coconut flour other than Bob’s Red Mill, your results may not be the same as mine.

    I’ve been searching for Christmas cookie recipes comparable to our traditional cookies like Grandma made for us. We always have a cookie press cookie…and here it is!!! Thank you, Starlene.

  • I’m so sad that I missed these before now! I too have fond memories of cookie press cookies and a cookie press packed away in the basement because I figured making gaps cookie press cookies was hopeless. Thanks! I just might make these for an up coming event. We don’t do many cookies here as a rule. I’m wondering if you tried it without the cocoa powder. It seems like that is part of the body of it. Chocolate is high oxalate so we need to avoid it.

    @PattyLA, sorry I didn’t respond sooner to your comment. I have not tried making the cookies without cocoa powder. I think since there is such a high amount of cocoa powder you would definitely need to do some tweaking to “dry” out the dough somewhat. If I were going to try without cocoa powder, I would go with this to start: 3/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Coconut Flour
    1/2 cup butter or coconut oil
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup honey
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

    I upped the coconut flour and decreased the honey. You’ll have to let me know if you try it without the cocoa powder.
