This recipe was my first time baking with coconut flour and I loved it! The texture of the cookies is chewy and a bit on the cakey side, but I love cakey cookies. I gave some to one of my friends, and she told me it tasted like store-bought cookies! (Score!)
I used this cookie scooper to create these bite-size keto cookies, but know if you decide to make larger cookies, add about 5-7 minutes of baking time. If you don’t, your cookies will taste grainy.
I used coconut sugar to make these cookies, and for those of you who don’t know, coconut sugar is not very sweet. So if you want to have sweeter cookies, add more. Or you can double the number of chocolate chip cookies. I hope you guys enjoy this recipe!
Tips and Tricks for Making This Best Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe:
- Adding chia seeds to this coconut flour chocolate chip cookies recipe is a big YES! It makes it healthier and gives you a higher energy boost!
- For those who are into the keto diet and cannot get coconut flour nearby, you can substitute the coconut flour with keto-friendly almond flour or psyllium husk powder. Those two are also perfect for baking but of course, the cookie would come out differing in taste when using coconut flour.
How to Make this Best Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe:
Before starting, don’t forget to preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and prepare a cookie sheet using parchment paper or baking making.
Here are the ingredients you will need: coconut flour, baking soda, salt (optional), unsalted butter, coconut sugar, eggs, and lastly, mini vegan chocolate chips.
Now you are all set! Let’s begin!
In a bowl, whisk together coconut flour, baking soda, and salt until well combined. Set aside:
In another bowl, beat together the butter and sugar using an electric hand mixer until light and fluffy:
Add eggs and vanilla extract to the mixed batter:
Mix well until combined, just like so:
Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix:
Then add the mini vegan chocolate chips:
Using a small cookie scooper, place the dough on the baking pan which is lined with parchment paper. I like using a smaller cookie scooper so I get bite-size cookies and they come out uniform in size:
Flatten the dough so it would bake evenly. Bake for 10-12 minutes:
Take out from the oven and cool on a cookie rack:
I wasn’t able to resist the sweet smell of the freshly baked Best Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies so I took a bite!
Aren’t you drooling because of the melted chocolate chips?!? This cookie doesn’t look gluten-free, but it is! A delicious cookie that won’t make you bloat or bulge. 😉

I made these and they are pretty good. Especially in a keto chocolate chip cookie fix. Only one thing I did notice is that the picture shows vanilla extract and it calls for it in the directions but it’s not listed in the ingredients and it doesn’t say how much to put in. I put 1 tsp. I also used swerve instead of coconut sugar.
Thank you for your feedback and comment Teresa. I appreciate it. I will improve this so all info is available.
Just wondering if the coconut sugar counts as sugar?? Sorry, am new to keto and I thought any quantity of sugar would kick you out of ketosis?
Hi Megan! Yes, it still counts as sugar but it is a natural kind. Here is what I have read about coconut sugar in relation to the Keto diet:
It is slowly absorbed by the blood but it is high in fructose which can contribute to impaired blood sugar control.
Thanks for the info!

just like to add that no maple syrup or honey should be used instead of coconut sugar they a not keto-friendly! as it was mentioned in frequently question box.
Omg! Just got these out of the oven… My kitchen smells amazing… Can’t wait for them to cool down.
1 question though.. Are these cookies meant to be super soft even though the bottom has browned? I’ve kept them longer than 12 mins..
No, they should be like regular cookies. Once you remove the cookies from the oven, allow to cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to cookie rack and cool completely. Resist the urge to eat them immediately. lol.
Thank you for trying out this recipe, Iris! Please keep visiting my blog for more easy and delicious recipes! 😉

Hello, what are the macros. I could not find it.
They look great. Going to try this one today, could you please list the amount of vanilla extra? It’s not included anywhere on the recipe. Thank you.
