COCONUT COOKIES – Keto, Low Carb, Paleo, Gluten Free, Nut Free, Sugar Free

I just love the toasted coconut flavor of these cookies! You may find these cookies not sweet enough when you have a bite, but as you chew, I’m sure you will be satisfied with the sweetness of the coconut flour and shredded coconut.

The recipe calls for coconut flour, shredded coconut and coconut oil, so the cookies are really coconuty. I just can’t stop eating :p

These cookies are soft at room temperature. If you prefer a hard/crispy texture like me, store them in the freezer (or fridge).

Author Miyuki


  • 1/3 cup Coconut Flour (My coconut flour weighs 45 g, which is about 1.5 oz)
  • 1/3 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut (35 g)
  • 1 tbsp Stevia Powder (or 1/2 cup Other Sweetener of Choice)
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2.5 oz Melted Coconut Oil (70 g)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / 350 F.
  2. Add all the dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk well. (I use this stevia powder.)

  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well.

  4. Roll the dough into 1-inch (2.5 cm) balls and place on a parchment paper. Smash down with a fork in one direction, and then the opposite direction.
  5. Bake for 13 - 15 minutes, or until really golden brown. (Each oven varies. I usually bake for 17 minutes.)

  6. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Recipe Notes

Bake your cookies really well until golden brown for a toasted coconut flavor.

Store them in the freezer for a hard/crispy texture. These cookies are soft at room temperature.

Per Cookie:

Calories 67 kcal, Protein 1.1g, Total Fat 6g, Total Carbohydrate 2.3 g, Dietary Fiber 1.5 g, Sugar 0.3 g

I always use SweetLeaf Stevia Powder for baking, so even though I provide the amount of other sweetener equivalent to Stevia in each recipe, that might end up in a different texture than mine.

    Looks simple to make and is keto, low oxalate and Paleo! Plus looks tasty. I’m gonna try these with a little bit of almond extract added. Thank you!

    1. Jerry Tostowaryk says:

      Looking at the contents which goes into making these cookies is very little. Is this for one or two cookies? Please check it and let me know. Thank you. (This is very important to me, as I am a diabetic).

      1. Keto Diet Channel says:

        If you roll the dough into 1-inch (2.5 cm) balls, the recipe should yield about 15 cookies.

  2. a tostowaryk says:

    your recipe calls for 1/3 cup flour and 1/3 cup coconut
    How can I get 15 cookies out of that are those measurements correct

    1. Keto Diet Channel says:

      Yes they are correct. As you can see from the YouTube video and the pictures in this post, they are not big cookies.

  3. Natalie Pitts says:

    Very nice. Will make them again!

    1. Keto Diet Channel says:

      Thanks for stopping by! Glad you liked them 🙂

  4. I love coconut! Thanks for the recipe…can i use toasted shredded coconut unsweetened?

    1. Keto Diet Channel says:

      Thanks for stopping by!
      I think you can (I’ve never tried though), but the colour of your cookies may get darker? Hope it’ll turn out good.

      1. I used toasted coconut & they turned out good, love its aroma & texture, thanks again!

        1. Keto Diet Channel says:

          Thanks for trying. I’m glad they turned out good!

  5. Carrie says:

    Thanks you for the recipe. I just took them out of the oven and cant wait til there cool. I had to try one right out of oven and they were very tasty but hot of course.

    1. Keto Diet Channel says:

      Carrie, Thank you for trying the recipe 🙂 That must be very hot! But to be honest I often do that too because I can’t wait…

    2. Carrie says:

      Update: After they cooled. I believe they are similar to a macaron. Very delicious recipe. Thanks again.

      1. Keto Diet Channel says:

        Carrie, Thanks for the update! I’m glad that you liked them 🙂

      2. Sharon Huxford says:

        Yes so were mine!

  6. April says:

    These are my favourite keto treat! I was wondering, could I use coconut manna in place of the coconut oil?

    1. Keto Diet Channel says:

      April Thank you very much!
      I’m sorry to say this but I have no idea…, but I guess the cookies will be much drier?

  7. Christine Michaud says:

    unbelievably simple and delicious!!! I used plain white sugar instead of STevia, I was looking for a gluten-free recipie, will make these again for sure (i got a dozen cookies from this recipie). thank you!!! will need to try some of your other recipies!!

    1. Keto Diet Channel says:

      Christine, Thank you for trying the recipe❤ I’m glad to hear that you liked them.
      I’m also glad to hear that the plain white sugar also worked, considering that bulk must be added compared to stevia.

  8. Sharon Huxford says:

    Made these tonight, for some reason the dough mixture was very wet so added more coconut flour( also used less sweetener)
    Crumbly and on the dry side but I quite like them!

    1. Keto Diet Channel says:

      Sharon, Thanks for trying the recipe!
      I don’t know why your dough mixture was wet. Adding more coconut flour made them crumbly after all? But I’m glad to hear that you like them anyway 🙂

      1. It did make them crumbly but who cares when they are delicious 🙂
        Put them in the fridge and had 2 with coffee this morning, they really are less crumbly from the fridge! Like no crumbles at all.

        I am wondering if I made a mistake with the coconut oil…oopsie

        Last night my husband asked if I really made these lol lol Excuse me sir lol

        These are very easy to make, thank you so much!

        Ps My batch made 20 small cookies, having a hard time figuring out carb amounts, it says 2 servings/cookies are 10 carbs when I enter it into carb manager.

        1. Keto Diet Channel says:

          Sharon, Thanks for your reply and you’re welcome!
          Umm, I think carb counts vary by apps and by brand you use…

          1. True, oh well lol

            I’m still eating them and will make them again lol

          2. Keto Diet Channel says:

            Haha Thanks 🙂
