We love all types of variations of this classic cookie.
Soft. Crunchy. Thick. Thin. Chewy. Crispy. Love them all.

Tell you what.
We will share our now beloved soft chocolate chip cookie recipe.
This recipe is our go-to cookie recipe for many reasons.
One being it’s made out of coconut flour which we love. Two the cookies are thick and soft just the way we LOVE them. Third they are not overly sweet. Fourth they taste amazing!
When making these cookies you will have to press them down a little as they will not spread while baking. For us, having a thick batter this way helps us reach that mouthful of soft cookie texture we adore. What we mean is. We are not the biggest fans of really thin, nothing there kind of cookies.
We like a hearty cookie!
A cookie where you can really bite into and chew!
When we eat a cookie we want to EAT A COOKIE, if you know what we mean?
Also let these cookies cool a little on cookie sheet before placing them on a cooling rack.
One more thing about these cookies.
You might realize that we do majority coconut flour. Now many of you might already know that the typical rule of thumb with baking with coconut flour is to use A LOT OF EGGS to help with texture and final outcome. But… we like to bend the rules a little. Rules are meant to be broken, right?
And guess what, using a lot of coconut flour worked in this recipe. Coconut flour can be tricky. But for some reason it worked!
And we are very pleased it did!
