Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten and Dairy Free)

My youngest recently had a birthday and wanted to bring something into the class to share.  I sometimes struggle with finding treats other children will enjoy and aren't filled with too much refined sugar and food colouring.  I recognize cookies are not necessarily healthy but are a treat so we decided to make a chocolate cookie and decorate with one smartie.  These were fun to make.  My girls loved them and apparently they were well received by her peers :)

Ingredients (makes approximately 16 cookies)
  • 1/2 cup softened coconut oil 
  • 2/3 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour, sifted
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium husk
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F and prepare cookie sheet.
  2. In a small bowl combine coconut oil, palm sugar, eggs and vanilla.  
  3. In a medium bowl combine, coconut flour, cocoa, psyllium husk, baking soda, sea salt and chocolate chips.
  4. Add egg mixture into the flour mixture and stir until combined.
  5. Place batter in fridge (if you don't want flat cookies) for about 15 minutes.  I didn't put mine in the fridge but do be careful, they do spread.  
  6. Roll batter into 1 inch balls.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
