Chocolate Chip Cookies (Dairy, Egg, Gluten and Refined Sugar Free)

By using ground coconut these cookies use a limited amount of flour.   They are chewy, full of flavour and are an excellent treat.  I have adapted this recipe from the gluten free chocolate chip recipe at

  • 3 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or other natural sweeteners
  • 1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon stevia
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon guar gum or xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup ground coconut
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup gluten, dairy free chocolate chips* 

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a small bowl, mix flax seeds with apple sauce, maple syrup, coconut oil and vinegar.
  3. In a medium size bowl mix all remaining ingredients.
  4. Add flax, apple sauce mixture to dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  5. Roll into balls and flatten onto prepared cookie sheets.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

* Enjoy Life and President's Choice chocolate chips are both dairy and gluten free.  The President's Choice chips contain sugar where as the Enjoy Life chips contains evaporated cane juice.
