Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies
Ok, let’s get it all out on the table, it’s time to confess. I REALLY like sweets, no seriously, SERIOUSLY!!! I can plow through sweets at an alarming rate and I’m not ashamed to have food on my face, hands, or jowels (that’s excess fat around the jaw line–HA I’m hilarious). But let’s get back to being serious. I like to bake. And I like to eat the dough/batter/paste in the process (I’ll eat anything). So when this Paleo shenanigans swooped me up and took away my cookie dough, you can imagine my anguish.
Sweets are a happy place for me and many other (incredibly intelligent) people….you know why, because they ARE AWESOME!! I can hear you now, “But Juli, that isn’t actually paleo. Baking paleo treats defeats the purpose of eating clean.” Well, I personally don’t give a crap what you think. I would much rather consume a paleo baked good compared to a normal one that is filled with lectins waiting to eat away at my intestinal lining. I ENJOY having sweets, and I feel better knowing what is exactly going into my body, because I made it. Even though I know my body is being sent on a roller coaster ride with the insulin spike I’m forcing on it, I still am able to control the amounts of sugar and fat I am shoving in my face.
Do I think paleo baked goods are good for you? No. Do I think they are better than grain-infested baked goods? Yes. Do I recommend you eating them on a weekly basis? No. Should you eat them to soothe your soul and make a lonely Friday night 10x better. Duh. If you want to lose weight, don’t eat cookies…of ANY kind. If you want to maintain your weight and maintain your sanity, hell yes, make them!
I found this recipe on Stacey’s Paleo Kitchen! Awesome blog with some inspiring recipes! The main reason I love it so much is because the batter tastes pretty dang close to regular cookie dough. I usually eat half the dough before I get them on a baking sheet. Stop judging me. Judger. Just make them. And eat the dough.Print
Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 4 large eggs
- 1/2 cup honey, raw
- 1/4 cup coconut butter or homemade coconut butter
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, warmed
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1/2 cup coconut flour, sifted
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life—they are soy and dairy free! And flippin delicious)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- If you are making coconut butter my way, follow the link and make your coconut butter before you walk through the rest of the step.
- In a medium bowl add the eggs, honey, coconut butter (break up the butter with a whisk or fork, if needed), oil and vanilla. Whisk until thoroughly combined.
- Add shredded coconut, coconut flour, almond flour, baking soda and salt. Mix together until everything is combined and stir in chocolate chips.
- Use a spoon to drop little dollops onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. I like mine a little darker on the bottoms so check at 15 minutes. Let them rest on the cookie sheet before removing to cool completely.
**The coconut butter is hard to get out of the jar, it is really solid, unlike coconut oil, so when I add the coconut butter to the other ingredients I break it up with a whisk into tiny bits. You can also heat it in the microwave to get it more of a liquid texture. If you use my way, you won’t really run into this problem.

Ha ha, you are funny I've gotta say. I found your blog whilst devouring a Paleo Pizza, I like your humour, thought I'd say.
Haha Thanks Veronica! Not many understand my humor so you must be hilarious yourself.
great texture, super taste! thanks Juli ! 🙂
This recipe was amazing!!
Glad you liked it Lisa!
Just polished off at least half of the batch. I mean…. I have total self control and had only one or two cookies (yeah, right)
holy balls, i wish I had those right now
Can I use ghee instead of coconut butter?
do you mean coconut oil or cashew butter?
Yum – just taking the last tray out of the oven! Nice treat.
you are seriously hilarious! after starting paleo this week and wanting to die because i too, am a baker, apparently the “cupcake queen” of chicago, and alas….all that is out the door, except for making the cupcakes for other people…..if i can stand it…
so this is like a lifesaver! i can live without the sweets, but sometimes you want some. and when you’re at a party and they have CAKE and you can’t have any…well….i’ll make some of your recipe to bring! 🙂 YAY! you rock!
Then you need to try out my chocolate chip cupcakes Natalie!!!
Wow! Just made them. I licked the bowl clean and ate one cookie. BLISS! I will save them for camping. I will save them for camping. I will save them for camping.
I was out of chocolate chips so I subbed in cranberries & slivered almonds. Pretty good, but nowhere near as good as the RAW DOUGH.
When I make these again, I’ll be amazed if they actually make it into the oven.
These were delicious!
Hi Juli! I am considering making these for Crossfit Roots anniversary this Friday. How many does a batch make??
I haven’t made these in so long that i’m totally blanking, but i think it makes 9-12 depending how big you make them. Tell everyone at CFR I said hi!!
Would it be possible to substitute stevia for the honey? I’m making these for a friend of mine that can’t have sugar so I’m trying to figure it out. Any help would be appreciated!
By the way, I make these weekly! Thanks for the recipe!
I’m not sure Tracy, I never use stevia, but i dont see why not
Ka’ching…..new staple in our household! Thank you! Looking forward to getting my hands on your cookbook.
Literally cooked up a storm today…a blizzard actually. 3 of the 4 things I made today are from your site…the other was my own concoction! The cookies are out of this world…was looking for a great chocolate chip cookie recipe and I found it. Amazing taste as well! Thank you so much for your great recipes!!
These are fantastic! I just fed one to my non-paleo fiance and he loved it. He said “MMMmmmm, those are awesome! What’s in them?” I’m taking them to a party tonight and I don’t think anyone will be disappointed.
Just an FYI for anyone wondering, I got 26 cookies out of this recipe. I made them a little larger than golf balls.
So, I am obsessed with your recipes! This is one of my favs. Tonight I topped these cookies with fresh strawberries and some coconut whipped cream (refrigerated canned coconut milk whipped) and created a pseudo strawberry shortcake. So freaking delicious!
These are delicious and super fast to make! Decided to make these along with a batch of strawberry rhubarb ice cream modified from some of your other ice cream recipes. So. Good. I now have a large food baby. ha! Have you ever made anything like a crunchy crust-like cookie? I was thinking ghee, flaked almonds and coconut, maybe an egg? What do you think? Might have to wing it and see what happens =)
yes. my giant vanilla bean chocolate chip cookies are crispy and crunchy!
Hi Juli, what could I sub for the coconut butter? Thankyou, Sarah
you need the coconut butter for this recipe
Hi, I’m just trying to avoid grains and sugar, do you think I could sub the same amount of regular butter for the coconut butter? Thanks!
no, they would not come out the same
Hi! How many cookies does this recipe make? I’m doing a cookie exchange and need to make 72 cookies!!!
Oh my goodness! I just took these out of the oven…..they are hands down the BEST COOKIES EVER! Not even missing the gluten, thanks!!!!
Just made these…they are delicious! I used a tablespoon to scoop te dough out and got 2 dozen small cookies.
Made these yesterday and it was delicious but I had problems with it cooking in the recoomended time. when they came out, they were not fully cooked in the centre and a little burned at the bottom. I popped them back in the oven for about 50 mins on 120 degress celcius and this helped cook them further without burning. I brought some to work this morning and I noticed that they were soft and not like they were after baking. Is there a trick to baking and storing these biscuits ?
thanks for a delicious recipe !
I am allergic to almonds. Can I use all coconut flour? Or is there another substitute like bean flour? Thanks
no, not for this recipe
This was the first Paleomg recipe I ever made. Love how far you have come from these days – from your recipes, to your photog skills (LOL love you), all your new adventures in beauty and fashion. We are all heathier, happier, and better dressed human beings because of you Juli!! Keep up the good work and thank you for your continued dedication to providing your followers with thoughtful content and a painfully honest blog. Looking forward to your next big adventure! xoxo Emily
awwww thank you so much for the love, emily!! man, i forgot this recipe was even on here hahaha feels like forever ago!
Made this tonight for dinner and it was spot on! I thought I had paleo flour, but realized I didn’t so I used the measurements someone suggested in the comments. Turned out delicious! Loved the sweetness of the “cornbread”. Thanks Juli!!!
Haha! Posted this to the wrong recipe!!
Omg!! These cookies were delicious! Nobody even knew they were “paleo”. Will definitely be keeping this recipe on standby to make again! The bottoms started getting darker before the cookie was ready, so I just turned the heat down to 300 and continued to cook them through. They were a hit!
glad they turned out and everyone liked them!!
