Guess who, the Cookie Monster is back. I'm back with grain-free, vegan, gluten-free double chocolate coconut cookies.
When you create a cookie recipe that turns out so delicious that you wish you had saved it for your cookbook. That is what happened with these babies right here. I literally winged this recipe a couple of days ago and couldn't believe I nailed them at the first go! I have been wanting to do a chocolate coconut cookie for a long time and with chocolate chunks and half a bag of coconut calling for me from the pantry, I simply had to answer.
These have theee perfect amount of chocolatey-ness and perfect amount of sweetness and the right amount of coconut. Too much coconut would be overpowering, but there's just enough to give the flavor and a wonderful chew to the cookies. My daughter even loved these and she doesn't care for coconut, so please give them a try if you are on the fence about coconut. Because these prove coconut can be delicious and will sway over those coconut-haters, haha!
Can we talk about cookie texture here? Crispy edges with chewy, fudgy moist centers guys. I don't really think anything else needs to be said here.
Why grain-free? Well, I'm not grain-free or gluten-free for that matter but I love, love to bake and love to constantly create desserts for all kinds of diets you all follow and many are grain-free and since I've been baking with almond flour for years, these were the perfect cookie for my grain-free folks.
For these, you will need 8 ingredients (+salt):
- almond flour (this is what makes these grain-free and makes them moist, another flour will not work, unless it was like hazelnut flour)
- shredded coconut (this makes all the other cookies out there jealous because coconut gives such fabulous chew)
- cornstarch (or tapioca if allergic to corn)
- unsweetened cocoa powder
- baking soda
- pure maple syrup
- vanilla extract
- chocolate chunks
Looking for other grain-free cookies? I've been doing the grain-free thing before I even knew it was a thing, lol. Try my original almond flour and starch ones here, the Perfect Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Dying, just dying to hear what you think of these cookies. I had one of my readers test these and she said "Wow, these are insane!"
Hopefully this last photo did you in and you are already in the kitchen prepping...
