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.

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:
