Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 Cups coconut flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 Cup coconut oil
  • 2 Ounces Amy & Brian Coconut Juice with Pulp
  • 1 1/2 Cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 Cups dark chocolate chips
  • 1 Pinch of shredded coconut

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut flour and baking soda; set aside.

In a food processor or blender, combine the coconut oil and coconut palm sugar. Blend on medium speed until mixed well.

Reduce speed to low and add sea salt, Amy & Brian Coconut Juice, vanilla extract, and eggs. Beat until well-mixed (about one minute). Slowly add flour/baking soda mixture until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop tablespoon-sized balls of dough 2 inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake until cookies are golden brown, approximately 15 to 17 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet one to two minutes.

Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool completely.

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
