Coconut Butter Cookies

coconut butter cookies

These are a quick, easy, and yummy treat. They are also gluten/grain free and sweetened with only honey. You can likely make these dairy free with coconut oil or palm shortening but I haven’t tried yet. Coconut flour is also full of protein to balance the sugar from the honey. This lowers the glycemic index in these cookies. These cookies take about 20 minutes from start to finish, a great last minute snack or dessert when you forgot one – especially for those who have to take their own food everywhere due to allergies.

Ingredients:

7 tbls Coconut flour

2 tbls honey

1/2 tspn vanilla extract

4 tbls butter

1/8 tspn salt

Method:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a pan (non-stick, parchment paper, or greased). cocobut1 Place all ingredients in food processor and process until smoothed.

Scoop generous 2 teaspoons and form into a ball and then gently flatten. You can flatten using a fork for a prettier effect.

Bake for  8-12 minutes until they start to turn golden brown. Let sit and cool completely on pan before moving or they will fall apart.

Should make about 8-10 cookies.

    These look great! Thank you. I’ll try to do them with a butter substitute and let you know how they turn out.
