Coconut flour is one of my top two flours I reach for when I'm making gluten-free baked goods. (The other is AP Cup4Cup.)
Made from dried coconut meat, coconut flour thickens batters without drying out the final product, creating soft, chewy and delicate textures. And that’s exactly what these cookies are — soft, chewy and delicate. Not to mention super delicious!

How to Make Coconut Flour Cookies
The batter takes one bowl and about five minutes, and baking takes about twelve.
- Mix the softened butter with the sugar, vanilla paste and salt.
- Blend the eggs into butter mixture.
- Fold in the coconut flour, baking soda and chocolate chips.
- Shape the cookies into balls without flattening them and bake in a 350°F oven until the edges are slightly golden.
(More detailed instructions are below.)
Recipe Tips and Substitutions
- This recipe calls for vanilla paste. I love the specks of vanilla. You can use pure vanilla extract if you don’t have the paste. (Switch it one-to-one.)
- Coconut flour is sometimes a bit lumpy, but you don't have to sift it -- the lumps easily smooth out with the back of the mixing spoon.
- I use semisweet chocolate chips in my coconut flour cookies, but feel free to use what you like (milk, dark, white).
- Coconut flour cookies are a bit fragile before they cool, so definitely leave them on the baking sheet for at least 15 minutes before moving them.
Can you make them ahead?
Yes, you can definitely make these cookies ahead.
Room temperature. In a tightly sealed container, the cookies can be kept at room temperature for about three days.
Refrigerator. In a tightly sealed container, they can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.
Freezer. Sealed tightly, you can store the cookies for about a month in the freezer.
Hope you love these Coconut Flour Cookies with Chocolate as much as my family and I do!
They’re SO GOOD!

Coconut Flour Cookies with Chocolate
- ½ cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla paste
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon coconut flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1⅛ cup semisweet chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven and prepare the baking sheets. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
- Make the batter. In a medium-sized bowl, mix the butter with the sugar, vanilla paste and salt. Then add the eggs and mix until they’re incorporated. Then fold in the coconut flour, baking soda and chocolate chips. (It helps to blend the eggs in with a large fork.)
- Shape and bake. Use a 1¼ inch cookie scoop to shape the batter into balls, placing them on the parchment-lined baking sheet as you go. They should have about 2 inches between them. (Do not flatten them!) Bake in the preheated 350°F oven just until the edges begin to turn golden, about 10 to 12 minutes.
- Cool. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for at least 15 minutes.

Coconut and chocolate combination was the reason I fell in love with Lamingtons; these cookies are calling my name the same way ! I wish you healthy and happy 2021. !

I remember seeing your post on this first on Facebook. It made me realize that I have never cooked/baked with coconut flour. I really need to give these a try… I need to bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies for shipping to an elderly friend. If I can find the coconut flour, I will send her these!
I hope (and your friend) love them. Thanks so much, David. 🙂 ~Valentina

I've never tried using coconut flour before, but I'm adding it to my grocery list because these cookies look amazing!
These were delicious! Mine didn't flatten at all. But it was a simple recipe with great results. I love my little coconut cookie balls.
Hi Renee. Thanks so much for writing in. So happy you liked these cookies. I'm not sure why they didn't flatten out a bit, but next time I make them I'll investigate. Enjoy and hope you had a lovely weekend. 🙂 ~Valentina
I did flatten them and thought that was better to do, my first batch seemed under baked but my second batch was better. Thanks for the simple and easy recipe.
Hi Deborah, Thanks so much for writing. I'm happy you liked these, and I hope you'll make them again. 🙂 ~Valentina
