Keto coconut flour cookies

Making these keto coconut flour cookies (also paleo cookies) is very easy, but keep in mind that this is a basic recipe. And for full flavor you’re going to want to add some extra’s to it. I will give loads of options below for both a sweet and a savory version of these delicious keto cookies.

What you need to make these keto cookies

For making the basic form of these coconut cookies you need only a few ingredients. The main being coconut flour, ghee and eggs. Once you’ve mastered the basics you can add flavor into the keto cookies. They do need a bit extra. 

When you start to make these keto coconut flour cookies you will notice that the cookie dough will look a bit too liquid at first. But coconut flour has the ability to soak up a lot of liquid so give it a little time and the dough will firm up enough to make cookies out of it. You first mix the coconut flour with the baking soda (or if you use any other dry ingredients, add them at this point too) in a large bowl. Add the melted ghee and any other wet ingredients and mix it through. Then add the eggs one by one until you have all ingredients added. You can use a hand mixer but I found it worked fine if I just used a whisk.

Savory version

You can easily make savory cookies as this is a great recipe to make variations with. Obviously a bit of salt is a must for savory (and for sweet as well) You can replace the ghee with coconut oil, although that will enhance the coconut taste a lot. Which is fine if that is what you want, but something to keep in mind.

You can make them even more delicious by adding some spices. Depending on wether you’re making a sweet or a savory version vary with the added ingredients. Think about adding some grated cheese to the dough or some finely chopped bacon will also be delicious. 

Sweet version

If you want to make a sweet version of these cookies, of course you can. The problem with sweet is that it contains carbohydrates. No matter what kind of sugar you use. So coconut sugar will also contain carbs. But if you still want to satisfy your sweet tooth every once in a while there are options. Erythritol is the best option in this case. Erythritol contains no or very few carbohydrates and is therefore a good choice if you want to eat keto but still want something sweet every now and then. The nice thing about this sweetener is that it works about the same as regular table sugar. It is slightly less sweet, but you can substitute it on a one-to-one basis. If you don’t care about the sugar you can add brown sugar as well, as that will give an extra flavor. Or a little splash of maple syrup. Be careful with liquid sweetener as that will have an effect on the texture of the coconut flour cookies.

For the sweet version of keto cookies, I would then add some flavoring like cardamom, vanilla extract, cinnamon, or ginger to make it complete. If you want to make them into keto chocolate chip cookies you can add some dark chocolate chips. Make sure to use dark chocolate though. White chocolate (technically not chocolate at all) contains too much sugar. Or try these paleo chocolate chip cookies instead.

Making the coconut flour cookies

They will not be the same as regular sugar cookies but they will still be super tasty. For making them I used a small ice cream scoop (cookie scoop will work as well) and placed little balls on a sheet of parchment paper. Place the prepared baking sheet in the oven until golden brown and let them cool down completely on a wire rack. They will need roughly 10-12 minutes in the oven to bake. The cookies are best eaten at room temperature. You can keep them in an airtight container for a few days. Not too long as they will become dry a bit faster than cookie recipes with more sugar.
