Double Chocolate Coconut Flour Cookies
Original Recipe (and picture above) from Ditch the Wheat
My husband and I did a little low-carb diet for a few weeks in the summer (6, I believe, though my hubby would tell you that those 6 weeks lasted about 20.)
During that time I ordered a large bag of coconut flour thinking that once we did start back on carbs, we would want to choose healthier ones. And we do, mostly. We eat a few pasta dishes here and there and a tortilla or two a week. And (gasp) we even have had chicken and dumplings. But I found a few keeper recipes from the healthy time AND I have all that coconut flour to use. And let me tell you, coconut flour recipes don't take much coconut flour.
Enter the Chocolate Magic.
I was not overly thrilled with the consistency of anything made with coconut flour, but then I stumbled upon the genius behind Ditch the Wheat who discovered that if you FREEZE YOUR COCONUT FLOUR COOKIES, the consistency is soft, chewy and heavenly. Magic.
Here's the recipe with my customary tweaks:
Chocolate Magic Cookies
1 cup coconut oil
1 cup brown sugar/sugar/coconut palm sugar
(I like my chocolate flavor dark, if you don't, add more sugar.)
6 large eggs
3 t. vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 t. baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips
