High Protein Coconut Cookies- Gluten Free

High Protein Coconut Cookies- Gluten Free recipe with shredded coconut, chocolate chips, honey and coconut powder.

These cookies are amazing! What I like about this cookie is it offers a good base for a gluten-free or paleo cookie, it is high in protein and you can add anything you want to it. Nuts, chocolate chips, almonds, ground flax seeds, raisins etc. The only sweetener is honey, and a little stevia:)

 

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter, softened (or earth balance butter substitute)

1/3 cup honey

1/2 t. stevia powder

4 large eggs

1 t. vanilla

1/4 t. salt

1/2 cup coconut flour

1 cup unsweetened coconut, finely shredded

optional: nuts, chocolate chips, almonds, ground flax seeds, raisins

 

Mix together butter, honey, and stevia powder. Add eggs, vanilla and salt and mix again. Add coconut flour and coconut and stir until combined. **The dough will be sticky.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes (these cookies will not brown on the top but will be done when they brown on the bottom. Enjoy.

    • admin says:

      This will make about 1 dozen cookies. The protein is found in the unsweetened shredded coconut, coconut flour, eggs, and whatever nuts you choose to add. They are a great energy cookie. Hope you enjoy!
