Coconutty Choc Chip Cookies

2 Mar

As promised (a very long time ago) here is the recipe I used to make some chocolate chip cookies. It’s not my recipe but it is pretty cool and from When you make them they’re quite soft but don’t be fooled, they do go harder once cooled. I stupidly thought they needed a little longer in the oven so mine had a lovely tan… some were a little over tanned… oops… ANYWAY!


  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil/butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon coconut cream
  • 12 squares quality dark chocolate

Don’t ask me how much 12 squares of choc is, to any woman I reckon it could even be the equivalent of 12 bars!! I just chopped up some choc and added what I thought looked appropriate

Chuck it all into a bowl and mix. I never follow instructions properly and everything turns out alright so unless the method matters, this is what I do.
When it’s all mixed, pat it out into round discs and place on a coconut oil greased baking tray. Pop it in the oven on gas mark 4 for 10 minutes.
Edit: The second time I made these I didn’t have enough chocolate so I added a tiny bit of cocoa powder. Came out well! Oh and my cookie dough is speckled looking because I add vanilla bean powder instead of extract

Baked cookies!


Cooled (and eaten) cookies. Totally worth the lack of stress and ease

    These look great! I’m always on the lookout for cookie recipes that are made with honey instead of white sugar.
