Here are 9 coconut flour cookies from my blog and some of my other favorite bloggers. I know what you are probably thinking – another post about coconut flour? Does she eat anything else? The answer is yes, I do eat a variety of foods, but currently, I incorporate a lot of coconut (in all forms) into my diet.
I’m definitely not the only one who loves coconut. More and more people are using it as a substitute for all-purpose flour to make foods Paleo or just because they love the flavor. Either way, I hope you will enjoy some of these cookie recipes.
All of these cookies recipes are gluten-free. Some of these are for chocolate chip cookies. Some of these recipes have a lot of flour and some don’t have so much, but they all have coconut flour and are all Paleo. Some of them are even gluten-free, which means they don’t have any grains or dairy.
Under each title I have listed the main ingredients in the cookies, so you can easily see if you can eat the main ingredients of those cookies.

Since starting a Paleo lifestyle I’ve really missed chocolate chip cookies about as much as anything. I was so glad to learn about almond flour and other gluten-free flours. They saved my sanity and my life. I am so excited to have found these. They are a classic that no one can resist. Whenever I decide to make something sweet, my kids always want these.

Almond Flour – Coconut Oil – Honey – Peppermint Essential Oil
These cookies are great for a Christmas party or just for a Holiday treat. These cookies combine peppermint and chocolate in a soft sugar cookie which is easy to make, Paleo and festive. You could also make these cookies and give them to your neighbors. I would certainly love it if someone gave them to me.
3. Best Chocolate Chip Cookies – Soft Batch – My Natural Family
Butter – Maple Syrup – Honey – Cassava Flour – Arrowroot Starch – Chocolate Chips
These chocolate chip cookies are the best SOFT grain-free cookies around. They are not crispy or crunchy, they are soft. So if you like soft chocolate chip cookies as opposed to crunchy you should try these. Actually, I prefer these to the crunchy ones. I like them soft, I just don’t like when they fall apart in your hand.
4. Grain-Free “Oatmeal” Raisin Cookies – My Natural Family
Almond Flour – Flax Meal – Dates – Honey – Butter – Raisins
These cookies are soft and chewy, yummy and still healthy. I eat them all the time for snacks and dessert. One thing I really like about cookies is that they have automatic portion control. That is unless you eat too many of them. I also like the convenience of cookies because you can grab them and go. Sometimes I eat these for breakfast because they are so healthy.
5. Grain-Free Snickerdoodles – My Natural Family
Ground Flax Seed – Maple Syrup – Coconut Oil – Vanilla Extract – Cream of Tartar – Coconut Sugar – Ground Cinnamon
These snickerdoodles are made with a flax seed egg and CF. They are perfect for those people that don’t like the taste of eggs and for those people who can’t eat eggs. My mother hated the taste of eggs her whole life. What a predicament for someone that was raised on a farm and raised their own chickens who incidentally laid a lot of free eggs.
6. Shortbread Cookies – Paleo Hacks
Butter – Maple Syrup – Chocolate Chips – Vanilla
For Christmas every year our neighbor gives us one of those tin cans of shortbread cookies. He’s a very kind older gentleman but to say it nicely. There isn’t anyone in our family that likes them. We even have a hard time giving them away to any of the 35 extended family members I have. You won’t have to worry about that with these shortbread cookies. Everyone will gobble them up, especially if you choose to drizzle chocolate on top like in the picture.
7. Caramel Apple Gingersnaps – Faith Food Fitness
Coconut Sugar – Butter – Coconut Milk – Molasses – Almond Meal – Apples – Coconut Oil – Egg White – Baking Soda – Ginger
Here is a healthy gingersnap cookie recipe that is drizzled with caramel sauce and mixed with dried apples. They have the teeniest tiniest pieces of sweet chewy dried apples then they are doused in the creamiest, thickest Vegan caramel sauce. The caramel sauce so good you’ll wish you could drink it.
8. Lemon Thumbprint Cookies – My Baking Addiction
Almond Flour – Sugar – Butter – Egg – Lemon Zest – Lemon Curd – Baking Powder – Real Salt
These cookies are good on their own but do you know what sends them over the top? Yeah, you’re right, it’s the lemon curd. There is lemon zest and lemon extract in the dough, but the lemon kick comes from the lemon curd. A recipe for homemade lemon curd in included but if you want to buy some in a jar, life just got easier, you can buy it on Amazon here: Lemon Curd I suggest using almond flour instead of almond meal, it’s finer and doesn’t have the specks of brown skin like almond meal. That’s the only difference, almond flour is ground more times the almond meal so it’ finer and the skins are taken off first.
9. Double Chocolate Chip Cookies – Ditch the Wheat
Palm Sugar – Cocoa Powder – Dark Chocolate Chips – Coconut Oil – Coconut Sugar – Eggs – Vanilla – Baking Soda – Real Salt
Coconut flour tends to have a bad reputation. They are usually too gritty and dry and pancake-like. If you like your cookies crispy, I like mine soft, Carol tells about a little secret she discovered accidentally to make them crispy. She says to put them in the freezer for half an hour only soon after they are baked. She says they are hardly even cold after being in the freezer for that amount of time. Plus they are crisp and yummy.
