Grain-free Double Chocolate Coconut Cookies (Paleo)

These Coconut Cloud chocolate cookies are what dreams are made of. Lightly sweetened, grain-free, gluten-free, nut-free, packed with protein, and absolutely decadent and delish --- you'll want to make a second batch asap.

I love baking with coconut flour because it's full of healthy fat and protein, naturally gluten-free, and super absorbant so you can use a LOT of wet ingredients (like coconut milk, mulitple eggs, or even pureed zucchini). NOTE: If you've never used it before, please know that alternative flours like coconut flour can be a bit finicky to bake with... so be sure to follow the recipe and instructions exactly!

Introducing Coconut Cloud!

These cookies feature a new product that I am totally loving and I know you will too: Coconut Cloud (available on Amazon with free 2 day shipping thanks to Amazon prime!). It's basically a powdered version of canned coconut milk. What I love most is that you can stir up any amount that you want to use in a recipe rather than opening an entire can and having to refrigerate (or worse, waste!) the extra. PLUS... it's 100% dairy free, non-GMO, soy-free, dairy-free, no gums, high in medium chain fatty acids, and has no trans fats! 

It's great in these cookies (recipe at bottom of this post). 

It's great in this coconut macadamia balsamic sauce for my new Grilled Pineapple Caprese Skewers. 

It's great in these fudgesicles.

It's great in this tropical sweet sticky coconut quinoa.

Basically, you can use it in any recipe that calls for coconut milk!

You can also use it in coffee as a non-dairy creamer (this is what it's technically "labeled" as!)... but it's so versatile and I'm excited to share other ways to use it as well, should you be set in your coffee routine

4 tablespoons
Coconut Cloud powder*
1 cup
Warm Water
3  
farm fresh eggs
1 tablespoon
Melted Coconut Oil
1⁄4 cup
Coconut Sugar
1⁄4 cup
honey
1 1⁄4 cup
coconut flour

Notes

*You can order the Coconut Cloud powder here.
**Alternative flours like coconut flour can be a bit finicky to bake with... so be sure to follow the recipe and instructions exactly!

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the Coconut Cloud powder and the warm water. 
  2. Add in all remaining ingredients, except for the chocolate chips. Stir until thoroughly combined. Finally, gently stir in chocolate chips. 
  3. Refrigerate dough for at least one hour. 
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  5. Roll out dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper. It's too sticky to roll without the paper. 
  6. I used small mason jar lids to cut out perfect circles, but you can use whatever cut-outs you want. 
  7. Bake for 16 - 18 minutes, or until lightly browned and not super mushy. 
  8. Allow to cool / harden before you devour them.
