Double Chocolate Chip Coconut Flour Cookies

I whipped up a batch of double chocolate chip coconut flour cookies for you!  Coconut flour cookies tend to have a bad reputation.  They are too dry and gritty, too soft and pancake like, basically it takes a lot of special tweaking to get a coconut flour cookie to be loved.  Today I’m sharing with you a technique I discovered by accident that takes your coconut flour cookies from too soft to a crisp cookie in a short period of time.  Guess what, you can apply this technique to all of your coconut flour cookie recipes.  Just remember you saw it here first.

How to Make Coconut Flour Cookies Crisp

When I make dessert recipes I tend to eat a few and then put the rest in the freezer.  This particular recipe uses more coconut palm sugar because of the amount of unsweetened cocoa powder.  It’s hard to stop at just one cookie.  I put the cookies in the freezer to stop myself from eating the whole batch.  A half an hour later I sneaked back to the freezer and grabbed some cookies.  I immediately bit into them.  Yum, crispy cookie and hardly even cold.  Really!  You should try it for yourself.  Use the freezer method to take your coconut flour cookies to serious cookie crispness.

These cookies are crisp after cooling for a few minutes but trust me coconut flour is flour that has PMS!  It loves to foul you.  Your slightly crispy cookies will turn soft within an hour…sad face.  Save the day by using The Freezer Method I talked about in the previous paragraph or make them mini cookies, that always works.


Yield: Makes 14 cookies



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Using a mixing machine, mix together coconut oil and coconut palm sugar. *You can cream it together and it will result in a lighter more cake like texture.
  3. Slowly add one egg at a time to the mixture.
  4. Add vanilla, coconut flour cocoa powder and mix until incorporated.
  5. Add baking soda and salt and mix until incorporated.
  6. Lastly stir in chocolate chips.
  7. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop the cookies by spoonfuls onto the cookie sheet with at least 2 inches apart. *These cookies spread out very thin and almost double in size. I usually put 9 cookies on a tray in rows of 3.
  8. Bake for 12 minutes.
  9. Let the cookies cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before moving them to a wire rack to cool.
  10. Here is the trick to keep the cookie crispy because coconut flour based cookies tend to soften to the likeness of a pancake fast. Place the cooled cookies in the freezer. When you are ready to eat them pull one out and enjoy immediately. The frozen cookie will be crisp but not rock hard.


*To get a crispy cookie you must either – freeze the cookie after it has cooled and keep it frozen or When you are placing the batter on the trays use only a tiny bit to make a mini cookie. Bake at the same temperature and for 12 minutes.


p.s. For those that are already trying to think of ways to use less sugar in this recipe I’m warning you not to until you try the recipe.  It’s not nice to make a recipe, change it from the start and then judge the recipe by saying it didn’t work out the way it was supposed to.  By drastically reducing sugar in a recipe that calls for unsweetened cocoa you risk ending up with a very bitter tasting cookie.  The sugar also makes the edges crisp.  If you do reduce the sugar, I don’t want to hear complaints in my comments because I warned you.

    These look yummy! It’s my first time using coconut flour! Anyway I wanted to know if the coconut oil has to be melted first?

      I very rarely work with liquid coconut oil. You want the fat to be more solid when baking so you get air bubbles from the fat.

    These turned out awesome!!

    Hi! These look delicious, I mean double chocolate – can’t get better than that. I have been wanting to make a regular chocolate chip cookie with the coconut sugar and coconut flour . . can I just omit the unsweetened coco powder? Or is that a huge change?

    Either way, I’m super grateful for this recipe and I’ll definitely be trying it. I’m trying to eat low glycemic to lose weight/get healthy. I have to crunch the numbers but I think this cookie fits the bill. It’ll be a nice treat once in a while when I meet my mini goals :)

      You cannot skip the cocoa powder because that’s the flour in this recipe.

    I followed your recipe and the cookies turned out great! The only thing I would change is the sweetness? Is there an alternative to make it less sweeter? Would an agave nectar be okay to use?

    Thank you for this recipe!

    Made these… and they were WONDERFUL! I am doing Trim Healthy Mama but cannot get over the terrible taste of stevia and the other sugar replacements. This would not really be on plan but I am hoping that it doesn’t spike the blood sugar as it says it doesn’t…. I may have to test and see. I don’t think this is going to hurt much having every now and again and I get my cookie fix! Thanks a bunch!

    Thanks for this recipe, Carol! I have to confess that I substituted the heck out of it, and the cookies were still awesome! Good recipes are like that. :)

    Carol –

    Just got done making these and I have to say, I. Love. Them!! It was nice to have something that was not going against how I am trying to eat to be healthy, but still took care of a craving that I’ve had for awhile.

    just wondering… Anyone try stevia in place of Palm sugar? Making for a T1D

    I just made these cookies for myself and regular chocolate chips for my husband. He tasted these and was in heaven! He couldn’t believe how good they were. They won’t make it to the freezer. They are AWESOME with a glass of red wine!!!

    This recipe is a hit! I used butter and substituted brown sugar for the coconut sugar, which I did not have. I took these to a family function, and all adults and kids thought they were great! I came home with an empty container. I wasn’t going to be able to keep them frozen, so I made them very small per the instructions. I used about half a spoonful per cookie, and they spread to about two inches. They were not crispy, but that may be because I used butter. I really didn’t care if they were soft or crispy. I just wanted them to taste, look, and feel like a typical cookie, which they did. I will make again for sure!

      Thanks. This cookie recipe doesn’t get crispy.

    Hi I am trying to make healthy low fat. Low carb snacks. A lot of recipes say unsweetened cocoa. I have bought raw cacoa organic powder can i use this instead? X

    • Carol Lovett January 29 at 5:04 pm #

      Try it out. It might work. You shouldn’t combine low fat with low carb.

  14. Suzanne February 23 at 10:01 pm #

    Carol, I like you. You seem to shoot straight! These are currently baking in my oven according to your recipe. I cannot wait to try them, and thank you so much for this recipe. I had been terrified of coconut flour for a long time because I tried several recipes that never seemed to work out. I hope I don’t eat them all at one time!!
