Grain Free Sugar Cookies

Did someone say sugar cookies? I love sugar cookies. I have also been inspired to do some grain free baking lately, so a grain free sugar free cookie just seemed to make sense.  I have already tried doing some grain free baking with my Grain Free Blondies and my Grain Free Blueberry Tart.  I hadn’t really used any coconut flour though.  So today at Whole Foods, I bought some.  I was so excited to use it that I baked these sugar cookies this afternoon.

I knew they were good as soon as I saw my daughter lick the beater clean.  If you are new to baking with coconut flour, there are some things you need to know.  Coconut flour absorbs a lot of moisture so it’s good to add an egg for every 1/4 cup coconut flour.  I used flax egg replacements in this recipe.  I was a little worried because I have heard that if you use more than 2 flax eggs, it messes up the recipe, but I used 3 and this came out great.

  1. These look really good, and so healthy! I love the idea of using coconut oil instead of butter.. but I haven't had much success with coconut oil in cookies. :( They always turn out really dry and crumbly. Maybe this is because I didn't add any eggs/flax eggs to the recipes I've tried? I don't know. These look great, though! Thanks for sharing! :)
    1. Thank you! These are the opposite of dry. They are very moist. Cooking with coconut flour produces a much different texture that flours made from grains. I am looking forward to trying out more recipes with it.
  2. Made these today, added some shredded coconut and dark chocolate chips...tastes like an Almond Joy bar! They're are fantastic!
    1. I'm not sure. I think they were best as formed cookies. It is kind of different baking with grain free flours. I hope you enjoy them! :)
