Paleo Coconut ( + Anything) Cookies

IMG_0002

I have been making these cookies for a while now from the app Paleo Plate. They were always a little gooey, which is fine, except I had to keep them in the fridge so they stayed firm enough to eat and they were just a tad on the rich side.

While home over the Easter weekend I played around a bit with the recipe and found the reason – too much coconut oil.

These are easy to make and everyone loves them! I tend to double the recipe because they disappear very quickly!

Ingredients:

  1. 1 egg
  2. 1/4 cup honey (I love to use raw, so yummy!)
  3. 1½ tbsp fat of your choice (I use coconut oil)
  4. 1 tsp vanilla
  5. 1½ cup (125ml) almond flour
  6. ½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut flakes
  7. 1 tsp baking soda
  8. ¼ tsp sea salt
  9. ½ cup of your choice (chocolate chips, cranberries, raisins, currants, etc). 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C)
  2. Whisk together egg, honey, fat or oil of choice, and vanilla in a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine almond flour, coconut, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet until all are well incorporated.
  5. Stir in your extra (chocolate chips, currants, etc).
  6. Spoon heaping tablespoons of batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving plenty of room between each.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cookies begin to brown on top (at my parents house the sweet spot is 13min – just experiment).
  8. Let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes, then remove to wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Eat and enjoy!
