Coconut Flour Cookies

Coconut flour is an amazing gluten-free flour you should get to know.  In just two tablespoons there are 6 grams of fiber and 2 grams of protein.  It is a great addition to smoothies or anything that needs a nutritional boost.  Coconut flour can be found in health food stores or well stocked grocery stores.  This recipe is for drop cookies – easier than rolling and cutting, but my young friend who gave these sugar cookies to me last night, went to the bother, so beautiful.

3/4 cup Granulated Sugar

4 Eggs

1 tsp. Vanilla

1/4 tsp.  Salt

1/2 cup Butter, brought to room temperature

3/4 cup Coconut Flour

3 Tbs. Sugar

  • Beat together sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt and butter, beat until fluffy
  • Stir in the coconut flour and mix well
  • Let the batter rest for 10 minutes at room temperature
  • Put additional 3 Tbs. of sugar in a shallow bowl
  • Using a 1 1/2 inch ice cream scoop drop balls of dough into the sugar and roll to cover
  • Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and flatten out with a fork
  • Bake at 375 degrees for about 10-12 minutes

this recipe produces a not too sweet, cake-like textured cookie, if you like your cookies with a bit more chew, try the following recipe – not to mention these have a big ginger flavor.

1/2 cup Crystalized Ginger

1/2 tsp. Powdered Ginger

2 tsp. Vanilla

2 Eggs, beaten

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
  • Melt the butter
  • Combine sugar and ginger in a food processor and pulverize
  • In a large bowl combine all the ingredients and let rest for five minutes
  • Using a 1 1/2″ ice cream scoop drop batter on cookie sheet about two inches apart
