Only Coconut Cookies

by Fresh Planet Flavor

Only Coconut Cookies (Grain/Dairy-Free, Paleo, Vegan) |

These cookies are pretty much a thought experiment, or a stunt. Can a cookie made of nothing but a variety of coconut products hold together and taste good? Um, yes! I’m curious why nobody has tried this before, but I’ve never seen a cookie like this. Lemme tell you, I’m glad these Only Coconut Cookies exist now, because they’re so simple and tasty. Plus, if you’re looking for a recipe for treats that can feed a crowd with different dietary preferences, this is the one. Since there aren’t any animals products in these, vegetarians and vegans can enjoy them along with Paleo folks. Even if you’re following the Paleo autoimmune protocol, these are compliant. Maybe these Only Coconut Cookies are a miracle. 😉 Only kidding, but they ARE fun and tasty. You can play a game when people ask you what they’re made of… “Only coconut”. “Egg?” Nope. “”Maple syrup?” Not even close! “Almond flour?” Just keep them guessing. Aren’t coconuts versatile?

I’m sharing this recipe in Paleo Magazine’s Fast and Easy Paleo Recipes link party. If fast and easy Paleo recipes is something you’d like to see more of, head over there and take a look! Also shared on Allergy Free Wednesdays at Whole New Mom… and featured! 🙂

I’m sorry, I made these, ate 1 bite and threw them away. A waste of good ingredients. Dry and flavorless.

Grok Grub September 5, 2014 - 5:47 am

Aw, too bad! Sorry you didn’t like.

Anna September 30, 2014 - 12:16 am

Sorry, but I agree with Irene. Super crumby and dry. Would not make again. :/

Grok Grub September 30, 2014 - 3:44 am

Hmmm, seems to be a split opinion situation!

Clare October 28, 2014 - 2:41 am

Mine weren’t crumbly they held together really well. I kneaded them a bit before rolling them out, maybe that’s why?

I made these today and they were quite nice. I put less sugar though. I imagine they would be nice Asa savoury biscuit with yeast flakes and perhaps some spices added also. When we have severe dietary limitations, we can be so thankful for a simple biscuit. So I’m grateful for you posting this recipe. Thank you
