  20. You have me craving cookies now! They look delicious!

    Posted on April 18, 2012 at 8:25 pm
  21. girls, I’ve made these THREE times in the last 2 weeks… that tells you how much my husband likes them πŸ™‚ I did them with the flax egg, and worked perfectly. The first time I made them, my coconut oil was pretty hard and did NOT want to mix into the batter… so I added a touch of almond milk, and my husband devoured them. He loved the soft texture, because healthy cookies always wind up being pretty chewy… The 2nd time I made them, I melted the coconut oil before adding the rest of the ingredients, and I thought they were perfect but my husband preferred the soft ones. Oh, and the 2nd & 3rd time I made them, I subbed protein powder for part of the coconut flour – I did 1/3 cup each of brown rice protein, coconut flour and almond meal. It was fantastic! My husband thanks you for this recipe πŸ˜‰

    1. Awesome Heather!!! So happy to hear this!

      Posted on May 31, 2012 at 7:22 am
  22. can you substitute coconut nectar for the coconut sugar?

    Posted on July 5, 2012 at 3:26 pm
    1. you can but it will change the final outcome of the cookie as coconut nectar is a liquid sweetener. you might have to adjust your other liquids so the batter not too runny.

      Posted on July 7, 2012 at 10:06 am
  23. Dying to make these! I just made some almond meal chocolate chip cookies that were fabulous…I bet the addition of coconut flour gives them an awesome texture!!

    Posted on November 17, 2012 at 8:57 pm
  24. I just got this pingback. Hello, sloooow WordPress, and now I really want to go out and buy some coconut flour and coconut sugar and make your recipe. YUM!

    Posted on June 23, 2013 at 2:15 pm
    1. haha too funny that you just got it, silly wordpress haha

      Posted on June 23, 2013 at 2:35 pm
  25. Hi! Can I sub tigernut for the almond flour? Is it regular sugar or coconut sugar? Love y’all!

    Posted on October 31, 2016 at 6:23 am
    1. You can give it a try with tigernut, we are not sure how it will come out. We do a mix of regular and coconut but either will work.

      Posted on November 1, 2016 at 11:12 am
  26. Just made a batch for my celiac boys. They ate them all. Thanks so much.

    Posted on September 27, 2017 at 7:28 pm
    1. Wahoo, awesome!

      Posted on September 28, 2017 at 10:53 pm
  27. Wow!!! These are soo good. I divided the batter…. adding chocolate chips and pecans to half and Cinnamon and pecans to the other half. Both were excellent. I will try other mix-ins like coconut and maybe dates etc. They are very very good. Oh and I subbed half the sugar for coconut nectar (used 1 1/2 TBSP Coconut nectar and 1/4 cup sugar). Batter consistency was perfect!
    Thank you for a wonderful recipe. Sooo yummy!!

    Posted on October 24, 2017 at 6:23 pm
    1. Glad you enjoyed the recipe.

      Posted on November 1, 2017 at 12:29 am
  28. So freakin good! I’ve tried various chocolate chip cookie recipes using coconut and almond flour and this one is by far the best.

    I was wondering if I could use honey instead of sugar as a sweetener. If so, should I use less since honey is sweeter?


    Posted on November 9, 2017 at 4:33 pm
    1. I think honey would work, just use a little less (maybe 3 tbsp?). Actually, I’ve made cookies using almond & coconut flour and used a liquid sweetener, which worked good. I would give it a try!

      Posted on April 11, 2018 at 3:24 pm
  29. I made these today and they were delicious, however, they were soft and cake like and I wonder if it’s perhaps I added too much milk. What is the cookie texture supposed to be like? I like my cookies crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. By the way, is the coconut oil supposed to be melted or softened?

    Posted on November 21, 2017 at 1:43 am
  30. Could I substitute in a sugar-free version for these cookies? Love that they are gluten free and dairy free, but I also need sugar free & have yet to find a recipe that works. I was thinking either Sukrin Gold to substitute for the sugar or Stevia in the raw…which would you recommend?

    Posted on December 17, 2017 at 3:25 pm
    1. You could try one. We haven’t tested that so not sure how it would come out.

      Posted on January 9, 2018 at 9:41 am
  31. I made these tonight. I cut the sugar to 1/4 cup. Added a tiny bit of milk. Perfect! I will definitely make them again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    Posted on February 15, 2018 at 9:19 pm
    1. Awesome glad you liked the recipe!

      Posted on February 18, 2018 at 5:50 pm
  32. Made these just now and am having a hard time yelling loud enough to the kids upstairs that the cookies are ready. I mean, I could probably finish them all right now and nobody would have to know. They’re great. I used Enjoy Life mini chips and grapeseed oil because that’s what I had but next time I think these will get a heap of coconut flakes, too.

    Posted on March 19, 2018 at 9:45 pm
  33. I made this cookies tonight and they were good! I subbed a flax egg like some suggested and use a liquid sweetener instead of granulated sugar. The flavor was good only slightly coconuty which means next time I could add a little more vanilla? These weren’t crunchy though, and they didn’t spread in the oven which I was kind of hoping they would. Do you think if I baked em at 375 for slightly less time they would be crispy? Thanks for the recipe πŸ™‚

    Posted on April 11, 2018 at 8:50 pm
  34. I follow the paleo diet so I try to avoid refined sugar. Can I sub coconut sugar instead of regular sugar?

    Posted on May 3, 2018 at 11:17 pm
  35. I made with a flax egg and dairy free chocolate chips. They were great.

    Posted on May 15, 2018 at 3:56 pm
    1. so glad they came out and you enjoyed them!
