These gluten free cookies have a delicate coconut flavour with a little burst of chocolate when you bite into the chocolate chips. They are also surprisingly filling so if you are after a sweet treat, you may find that one is enough.
Ingredients 1/2 cup of coconut oil - melted
1/2 cup granulated sugar - I used raw caster sugar
1/2 tbsp of vanilla essence
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup of coconut flour - packed down into cup
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
3/4 cup of chocolate chips
Set oven to 190 deg C (180 deg for fan forced oven).
Mix the coconut oil, sugar, vanilla essence and eggs together in a bowl.
Eggs, coconut oil, vanilla and sugar mixed together.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour. salt, coconut and chocolate chips together.
Mix rest of dry ingredients together.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix together thoroughly.
Once all the ingredients are mixed together, you are left with a crumbly mixture ready to form into cookies.
Line a tray with baking paper and form the mixture into small cookies. Press them down into the size you prefer as they will not flatten out when baking. The mixture can be quite crumbly. If you are having a problem with the mixture staying together, put it in the fridge for a short amount of time. The coconut oil will start to harden the mixture a little and make it easier to form into rounds,
Cookies ready for the oven.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until slightly browned.
As these cookies use coconut flour instead of wheat flour, they have a different consistency than a normal cookie - a little drier but delicious all the same.
