{coconut chocolate chip cookies}


When I discovered my little babe had some food allergies,
I started looking into some alternative cooking styles.
We didn't know exactly what he was allergic to, 
but I figured he was probably sensitive to dairy and/or gluten.
Turns out, he may not be, but I have found some really neat new recipes.



While shopping at Costco I saw that they had a bag of organic coconut flour.
I bought it and started researching for some great recipes.
I have a weakness for cookies, so when i saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it.
{don't try to substitute coconut flour for regular flour... it is much more absorbent}


Something that I have discovered when trying to make healthier, dairy or gluten free foods,
is that many of the ingredients I don't have yet.
I think I will eventually venture into these things, but for now
I altered the above recipe slightly to include the dairy products.
{If you are dairy intolerant though there are substitutes you can use.}

These cookies are pretty delicious.
My three year old LOVED them.
I found that they are even better with a glass of milk too.
They are soft. And coconutty. And chocolatey.
Yum.
Enjoy!



 Ingredients
  • ⅔ cup coconut flour (2¾oz)
  • ⅓ cup corn starch (1¼oz)
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 2 whole eggs 
  • ⅓ cup chocolate chips
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil, liquid 
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened  
  • 2-3 tablespoons water



Instructions

  • Have all ingredients out to room temperature.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, place all your dry ingredients. Stir.
  • Add in your chocolate chips and stir.
  • Next add in your softened butter, vanilla, coconut oil and eggs, let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Stir.
  • End with adding in your water. Till you get the batter to start holding together. You want it to be on the thick side.
  • Scoop onto cookie sheets. 
  • Push cookies down and shape them however you'd like... they won't spread on their own.
  • I got about 16 cookies, all depends on your size of scooper.
  • Bake for 14-16 minutes.
  • Cool before removing from cookie sheets.

  1. YUM! I was told that my toddler had a lot of allergies but he either grew out of them or they were not allergies (I'm convinced it was the pacifier causing the trouble).
