Prep time

Total time
Recipe type: Dessert
  • ¾ cup coconut flour
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1  tsp cinnamon (optional, but I like cinnamon with my chocolate chips)
  • ½ cup coconut oil, melted (I used Tropical Traditions)
  • 4 eggs
  • 6 Medjool dates
  • 3 Tbsp coconut milk
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • a bag of chocolate chips. Yes, you heard me:
  • an entire bag
  • .
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Make some date paste. You can either follow this method or, this one, which is what I did: Pit the dates and put them in a microwave safe bowl along with 4 Tbsp of water. Microwave for about 1 min. Put the date/water mixture into the food processor and process until it’s an even consistency.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients: coconut flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon (if you’re using any).
  4. In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, melted coconut oil, vanilla, coconut milk and date mixture.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet while mixing with a spoon. Once the ingredients are just combined, add chocolate chips and shredded coconut. Spoon onto your baking sheet– makes about 24 cookies.
  6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
