The coconut flour cookies you have been waiting for! Made with 4 ingredients (coconut flour, sweetener, coconut oil & flaxseed meal), these easy, delectable cookies are also nut-free, gluten-free, grain-free, Paleo, and keto-friendly (with 1 ingredient swap).




  1. Preheat oven to 325F (160C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the coconut flour, flaxseed meal, coconut sugar, and (optional) salt until completely blended, breaking up any and all lumps in the coconut flour.
  3. Add the warm coconut oil; stir until completely blended (the dough should appear and feel like wet sand).
  4. Working quickly, scoop 13 small rounded mounds of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet (I used a small cookie scoop) spacing 2 inches (5 cm) apart, Using fingertips, pat down any uneven areas on each mound, smoothing the tops and flattening cookies slightly.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 9 minutes until just set and the edges of the cookies are golden brown.
  6. Remove from oven and cool on the sheet for 10 minutes. Use a spatula to transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and cool completely. Place the cooled cookies in an airtight container and chill until cold.


Storage: Store the cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or the freezer for up to 6 months.

Measuring the Coconut Flour: For greatest accuracy, it is best to weigh the coconut flour on a digital scale. If using cups and tablespoons, 100 grams of coconut flour is equal to 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (14 tablespoons total) of lightly spooned and leveled coconut flour.

Make it Keto: Replace the coconut sugar with the keto-friendly, measure-for-measure, granulated sweetener of your choice. Keto Macros per Cookie: Calories (122); Total Carbs (5.5 g); Sugars (0.5);  Net Carbs (0.6 g).

Sugar Options: An equal amount (48 g) of brown sugar, natural can esugar or granulated sugar can be used in place of the coconut sugar.
