Cocount Flour Chocolate Chip Pan Cookies

This recipe is both dairy free and wheat/gluten free.

It was a first attempt at baking with coconut flour for me. I think that the recipe needs some tweaking still. The original recipe called this brownies but I don't think that this is anything like brownies in texture or flavor. To me recipe is more like a pan cookie especially with the addition of the chocolate chips instead of the originally called for nuts.

1/3 cup dairy free buttery stick
1/2 cup cocoa powder
6 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sifted coconut flour
1 cup dairy free chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 pan.
Melt the dairy free buttery sticks and mix in the cocoa powder.
In a separate bowl beat together the eggs, sugar, salt, and vanilla.
Add the cocoa mixture to the egg mixture and mix well.
Add the sifted coconut flour and mix well leaving no lumps in the batter.
Stir in the dairy free chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

I think that some strong brewed coffee might be a good addition to this recipe as to me it is very dry in texture. Also this recipe is not very sweet like one expects a brownie or cookie to be so maybe adding some brown sugar for sweetness and depth of flavor would be a good idea. I think that those are the first things that I will play with in trying to improve this recipe.


  1. Wow, loads of eggs in this, I bet it does taste a bit too light to be brownies? Sounds good though, I love that you experimented with coconut flour. I have wanted to try that.

  2. LOVE LOVE coconut!!

    Fantastic recipe =)

  3. That sounds so good! I love coconut AND chocolate...together is even better.
