Coconut Flour Cookies {Paleo, Gluten Free}

These cookies are yummy and super easy to make. So, I had a sweet tooth this week. Sad to say, because I usually crave salty snacks like potato chips! But, these little cookies really hit the spot.

They are gluten free and paleo. Fab! They won’t mess up that diet plan or upset your tummy. Now, if you don’t like coconut, these are not the cookies for you. They were made from three types of coconut products. Yes, three – maybe I went a little overboard.

You will need: 1 cup of coconut flour, ½ cup of melted coconut oil (or melted butter), ½ cup sugar (I used coconut palm sugar), 4 cage free eggs, 2 tbsp. of vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. Also, feel free to add loose chocolate chips or coconut shreds to the mix!

Simply add all your dry ingredients together. So combine flour and sugar and stir.

Melt your coconut oil and add to mixture. Crack the eggs in and stir once more.

Lastly, add in the vanilla and pinch of salt. Use a big ol’ fork to mix up your cookie dough. And, taste it. You gotta live a little. It will taste fantastic. I absolutely love the saying, ‘You only live once – lick the bowl.’ So true!

Roll your dough into little balls. They will not feel like normal cookies (not as moist). But, that is alright. You just have to live with the fact that paleo and gluten free food has a different texture.

Heat the oven to 375. Pop your cookies in (on a lined baking sheet) for about 10 minutes.

Enjoy your yummy sweet treat!
