Chewy Peanut Butter Coconut Cookies
Free from grain, gluten, eggs, dairy, and refined sugar.
- 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon chia or flax meal
- 1/4 cup hot water
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/2 cup peanut butter or almond butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I like to make my own)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips (I use my honey-sweetened chocolate chunks)
Preheat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, combine the chia/flax meal and hot water and let stand until gelled. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together remaining dry ingredients.
Add in the honey, peanut butter, applesauce, vanilla and chocolate chips.
Drop heaping tablespoonfuls onto the cookie sheet.
Bake for about 12 minutes, or until browned on top.
Let cool on the sheet for about 5 minutes before removing to cool completely.
Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
How much regular flour would you use instead of coconut flour for this?
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! 🙂
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. 🙂
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.
Oooh, the banana sounds good, too! Thanks! 🙂
These look SO yummy! I just stumbled upon your blog via Pinterest looking for soaked oats granola bars. I will keep coming back!
Yay! I hope you enjoy the recipes! : )
How would coconut flour compare to almond flour?
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 (http://goo.gl/5iE4IG) and enzyme inhibitors. Plus is it very expensive. I make my own coconut flour (http://goo.gl/BlMcxs), and use so little of it in baking, that it is cheaper in the long run. Hope that helps!
These look amazing. I definitely have to give this a try! I love baked goods with coconut flour.
Thanks for sharing (and for linking up to the #SHINEbloghop).
Wishing you a lovely day.
Glad to share, Jennifer! I love coconut flour, too. Still trying to convince my hubby, but these cookies help. 😉 Thanks for stopping by!
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 🙂
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. 🙂
These look so delicious and moist! I love anything peanut butter! 🙂
Me too, Logan! I hope you enjoy the cookies! Thanks so much for stopping by. 🙂

Hi , was just wondering if you happen to have nutrition facts on this recipe ?
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. 🙂
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!!
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. 🙂
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. 🙂
Yay! I’m so glad you enjoyed them, Carla! 🙂 Thank you so much for letting me know.
Peanut butter is one of my all time favourite ingredients!!! Yum. I love that there is honey in these 2!! Great cookies, can’t wait to try them. Cheers
I adore the combo of peanut butter and coconut here!
Thank you! It is a pretty amazing combo!
Love that you used honey to sweeten these cookies! the kids will LOVE them!
Thank you, Suzy! My kids sure love them. 🙂
Oh my gosh. I’ve never tried peanut butter and coconut together. This is brilliant!
It’s so good! I hope you get to try them, Emily. 🙂
