There are few things that can beat a good cookie in my house.

Especially a soft, chewy cookie. And we get extra points for healthy and easy here, too. These Chewy Peanut Butter & Coconut Cookies are a hit every time I make them. They’re actually my husband’s favorite gluten-free cookies, and they’re healthy, simple, and easy to make!

And if there are any leftover . . . . they’re still chewy the next day. Not there will be any, these are usually gobbled up as soon as they leave the oven. 🙂

  1. Hmm… good question. 🙂 I would say that, seeing as coconut flour is more absorbant than grain-based flours, you would probably need to use closer to a cup of regular. Hope that helps. Let me know how it works out! 🙂

  2. These look scrumptious. I want to make this, but we don't keep Chia or Flax Meal in our house. I'm guessing that you used Chia Meal as an egg replacer? If I'm right, then will it work if I use an egg instead of the Chia & water?

    Sorry, I'm a beginner and just starting to learn about vegan & gluten-free ingredients.

    Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  3. Yes, you could use an egg or two. I haven't tried it, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. ; ) For a vegan option, you could also use a banana.

  4. Hi Michelle, coconut and almond flours are very different. When baking with almond flour you can use a closer measurement to what you would for wheat or a GF mix, while you barely need any coconut flour comparatively, since it soaks up so much moisture. I prefer not to use almond flour, though, because it is high in PUFAS ( and enzyme inhibitors. Plus is it very expensive. I make my own coconut flour (, and use so little of it in baking, that it is cheaper in the long run. Hope that helps!

    1. Glad to share, Jennifer! I love coconut flour, too. Still trying to convince my hubby, but these cookies help. 😉 Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Oh yum! They would be gone in seconds in my house too. I love that they’re vegan and gluten free. Can’t wait to try and I’m so glad I found your blog on the link up 🙂

    1. I’m so glad you found me, too, Ursula! 😉 I hope you enjoy the cookies if you get a chance to make them. I’m not sure honey is considered vegan (though it is SO good for you), but you could use maple syrup instead for a strictly vegan option. 🙂

  6. These cookies look fantastic! Hope you have a great week and thanks so much for sharing your awesome recipe with Full Plate Thursday. Your post has been pinned with the party!
    Come Back Soon!

  7. Raia, this is genius! I love the ingredients and how it is free from gluten, dairy and so many things that can be a problem for so many. Thank you for linking up at Wonderful Wed. Blog Hop and please come again next week. Carrie, A Mother’s Shadow

  8. Hey Raia! These look REALLY good. I tried making up a recipe for something similar and it was… well.. an epic flop! Lol. I’ll have to give yours a try instead. 🙂

    Thanks for linking up to Natural Family Fridays! You are one of this weeks featured posts! Hope to see you again this week!

    1. Haha, I understand, Jacqueline! I hope you enjoy the cookies if you get a chance to try them. 🙂 Thanks so much for featuring them! I’ll definitely be back this weekend.

  9. You can’t beat the fact that they look great too! Thanks for being a part of The Yuck Stops Here recipe link party this week! I can’t wait to see what you’ll create to help us #stoptheyuck again next week! HUGS

  10. Could I sub almond butter for the peanut? I’m Paleo so no legumes for me…but wow would I like to eat this cookie NOW 🙂

  11. Hi Raia,
    My family and I love to munch on guilt-free, healthy snacks like these, so thank you so much for sharing your delectable Chewy Peanut Butter & Coconut Cookies with us at the Healthy, Happy, Green andNatural Party Blog Hop. I’m pinning and sharing!

    1. Sorry, Dale! I don’t ever try and figure that out. I’m sure there are some sites online you could plop the ingredient list into though, if you really want to know. 🙂

  12. These are so yummy!! I used Flax instead of chia, so didn’t use water… Could that be why they are super crumble-y? I mean- don’t get me wrong, I still want to eat all of them!! Just wondering what I did wrong. Sooooo delish!!

    1. I’m glad you like them, Aliza. Flax works just as well as chia, but you NEED the water! When it gels with the flax/chia it becomes the binder that takes the place of eggs in the cookie – it holds them together. 🙂

  13. I always like to give kudos when deserved and these definitely qualify! Thank you for an easy, tasty and healthy cookie. I can’t make the fast enough. 🙂
