CINNAMON CHOCOLATE COCONUT FLOUR COOKIES – Keto, Low Carb, Paleo, Gluten Free, Sugar Free, Nut Free
I just put everything I love (cinnamon, chocolate and coconut) in these cookies! Oh, no, wait! Except peanut butter! 😛
Coconut flour is a bit difficult to use because it’s absorbent (and can vary by brand). In order to achieve the texture that I like, I made these cookies many times. The final recipe calls for two eggs and 1/3 cup of coconut oil, but I think two eggs and 1/4 cup of coconut oil still work okay.
These cookies are very soft (almost cake-like) at room temperature. If you prefer a hard texture, please put them in a ziplock bag and store them in the freezer (or the fridge). They are delicious either way! I always store 1/3 each in the fridge, in the freezer and at room temperature.
I used a round measuring tablespoon to drop the dough onto parchment paper. I thought that round shaped cookies would look pretty! And they are pretty, aren’t they? 🙂 (I don’t have a cookie scoop! Not so popular here in Japan.)

I always use SweetLeaf Stevia Powder for baking, so even though I provide the amount of other sweetener equivalent to the Stevia in each recipe, that might end up in a different texture than mine.
Coconut four varies greatly between brands. If you feel your cookies are dry, please add more coconut oil next time.
