Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip PLUS Cookies

2016-03-04 12.02.52

So you might know that I’m currently on a little but of a Maternity Break to spend time with the newest Frisky Lemon. He came a month early and in a very unexpected way (he was breech AND 4 weeks early, meaning I had to have a unplanned, somewhat emergent c-section, which was TOTALLY unexpected and a bit terrifying, but I’m doing fine now…).

Baby is healthy and happy and so is mom…

Especially since I made these amazingly delicious cookies.

About one week after we got home from the hospital, I had a burst of energy and was craving some chocolate chip cookies. So Dad took charge of the little guy, and I want crazy-pants in the kitchen, throwing together a pretty-darn-good chocolate chip cookie recipe with the ingredients that I had lying around in my cupboard.

These babies were good.

So good in fact that I forgot to take pictures of them…We ate them too fast.

So I had to make them again…

But they were just as good the second time around.

Recipe type: Sweet treat
Serves: 12 Cookies
Ingredients
  • ⅓ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ cup butter or coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips (like Enjoy Life)
  • ⅓ cup pecans
  • ⅓ cup dried tart cherries
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the melted butter (or coconut oil), eggs, vanilla and honey until well combined.
  3. Add the sea salt and coconut flour gradually while stirring.
  4. Mix in the chocolate chips, pecans, dried tart cherries, and shredded coconut.
  5. Let the batter stand for 5 minutes for the coconut flour to absorb some liquid.
  6. Spoon the cookies onto your baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
  7. Cool on the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack (if you skip this step, your cookies will fall apart immediately.)
  8. Enjoy!

These cookies are really easy to throw together. And SO worth it.

They were definitely a staple of my first month with a newborn!

    Congrats and so happy all are well! I flipped 2 of my babies doing an old Indian pose! My gyno/obstetrician suggested it – lie on ground, raise hips on pillows, rest for a spell. Totally amazing when they released from pelvis and rotated. All good to know and worth the share!
