Coconut chocolate chip cookies are a healthy alternative to traditional and are certain to satisfy a sweet tooth.
The world needs a lot of things, but does it need another chocolate chip cookie recipe? Probably not. But I’m going to share this one with you anyway.
It’s not your usual caramelized chocolate chip cookie made with lots of butter and brown sugar and wheat flour. Instead, it’s gluten-free and full of nutty, chewy coconut. So don’t look at like a substitute. Try thinking of it as a different cookie.
They’re sweetened with maple syrup, but you can swap honey for it if you’d like. You can also use sweetened coconut if you don’t mind the added sugar. Unsweetened leaves you with a less caramelized flavor, but it’s still good.
I chose almond meal for these, but you can use almond meal for a chewier texture. If you only have one, I wouldn’t go out of your way to get the other unless you have a preference. The coconut makes these chewier than other gluten-free chocolate chip cookie recipes.
For chocolate chips, just use your favorite. I like Ghirardelli chips or Guittard dark chocolate for a deep chocolate flavor, but any brand you have or like will work.
These will last for a few days stored at room temperature in an airtight container, and make the perfect snack to go with your favorite coffee or tea.
