Prepared by Sarah Shilhavy, Photo by Jeremiah Shilhavy

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Combine egg (room temp), coconut oil, honey, almond extract and vanilla extract and mix well. Add carob chips if using. Then add dry ingredients and mix well with wooden spoon.

Roll into walnut sized balls and bake for 5 minutes on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Use a fork to flatten and bake for 10-18 more minutes. Cool on wire rack.

Going to try these, maybe tonight. I will substitute agave for the honey and probably reduce the sugar and replace with xylitol.

What is the benefit of adding the coconut flour to this recipe. To change the texture from being too soft?

I have tried to mix the coconut flour with almond flour but have not been pleased with the taste results so far.

Almond flour is so much tastier.

I would like to be able to make a crisp cookie somehow. Any ideas on this using these low carb/gluten free flours?

I just made these cookies. They are super yummy. I used granulated palm sugar in place of the sugar.

Nancy: I'd prefer stay away from palm/coconut sugar as it is a non sustainable product. Glad you liked the recipe though. :)

The taste of these cookies was very rich and spectacular. But next time I will add more coconut flour and almond meal because the consistency wasn`t thick enough, in my opinion, and they spread too much in the oven.

I am curious, how is it that coconut sugar is "not sustainable," but coconut flour is?

Ruby: You can read about coconut sugar here: http://www.tropicaltraditions.com/coconut_palm_sugar.htm The article explains it very well.

Thank you, Sarah. Just read your link.

I had to tweak these out of the gate but they ended working well. I'm on a Candida Diet which means no sugar of any kind. So I add 2 extra large eggs (instead of 1), decreased the coconut oil to 1/3 cup, omitted the carob chips, honey and sugar. I rolled them in a ball and then flattened them. Baked at 350 degrees for 9 minutes. Wonderful! They kind of crumble and of course not sweet at all, but I think they are wonderful. They look like a cookie!

I love it. It seems great and healthy. I would like to try but for how many people is this recipe?

I eliminated the sugar since I like less sweet. Turned out very dry - was disappointed
