Keto Coconut Flour Cookie Recipe

A coconut flour recipe with JUST 5 INGREDIENTS!

With a deliciously fluffy texture, they taste like a cross between a gooey chocolate chip cookie and a sweet coconut macaroon.

The homemade healthy cookies can be low carb, vegan, gluten free, soy free, wheat free, tree nut free, grain free, paleo, and sugar free.

There’s no stand mixer required, and they can even be made with no eggs.

Coconut Flour Cookies

Coconut flour chocolate chip cookies

While many coconut flour cookie recipes must add other flours, starch, or nut butter to hold the cookies together, these are different because they’re made with ONLY coconut flour.

No almond flour, no tapioca flour, no white flour.

Throw in a handful of chocolate chips or sugar free chocolate chips to make chocolate chip cookies, or leave the chips out for coconut shortbread cookies or sugar cookies.

What is coconut flour?

Dried coconut is the only ingredient in coconut flour, and it’s finely ground until it resembles the texture of wheat flour but contains no gluten.

Coconut flour is very high in fiber and also contains potassium, iron, and 3 grams of protein in just 2 tbsp.

It absorbs liquid like a sponge and therefore can almost never be used as an equal substitution in baked goods calling for other flours, so it’s best to find recipes that specifically call for it instead of trying to substitute coconut flour for almond flour or all purpose flour.

Can I use a different flour in the cookies?

This recipe has only been tested with coconut flour, so use one of the following recipes instead if you’d prefer to use a different flour:

For almond flour cookies, make these Keto Cookies.

For oat flour cookies, make these Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies.

For cookies with spelt or white flour, make these Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Keto Cookie Dough

How to make coconut flour cookies

Start by measuring out your ingredients.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit, and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. (If using a silicon baking mat, you can skip the parchment.)

In a mixing bowl, stir everything together to form a cookie dough, then roll the dough into balls. Place on the prepared baking sheet.

The cookies don’t flatten on their own, so I like to press them down into cookie shapes before baking. If you prefer cookie balls, this step isn’t required.

Cook on the oven center rack for 22 minutes. They will still look soft and undercooked when you remove them from the oven, so let the coconut cookies cool completely, during which time they will firm up considerably.

*For vegan coconut flour cookies, flax eggs do work here. Just be sure to whip up the flax eggs and give them time to sit and fully gel before proceeding with the next steps of the recipe.

Coconut Flour Cookies

These soft and chewy keto coconut flour cookies are super quick and easy to make!
Cook Time 22 minutes
Total Time 22 minutes
Yield 5 – 9 cookies
4.1 from 43 votes


  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 tbsp liquid sweetener (such as maple syrup, honey, or keto syrup)
  • 2 eggs or flax eggs
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil or butter
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, optional


  • Preheat oven to 325 F. Stir all ingredients together in a mixing bowl. It will look very liquidy at first, so keep stirring until it suddenly thickens into cookie dough. Roll into balls, smush into cookie shapes, then bake 22 minutes on a lined cookie sheet on the oven's center rack. They will be very delicate when you take them out of the oven, so let the cookies cool completely and they firm up as they cool.

    How did you know I was looking for a vegan coconut flour cookie recipe?! I am making these right now. But Do they flatten in the oven? I don’t like thick ball cookies….. that’s just me lol<3

    • CCK Media Team says

      The recipe instructions say to smush them into cookie shapes. They don’t flatten on their own, but they can be flattened either before or after baking.

  2. Amy says

    These are SO DELICIOUS!

    I had coconut flour leftover from a different recipe and when I got your chocolate chip cookie recipe in my email this afternoon I was able to make them right away. Perks of working from home this year 😂

  3. Maureen says

    This is an excellent recipe. I’ve tried a few other low carb or keto cookie recipes from other blogs and been unhappy with the results, but these were fabulous! Soft, gooey, chewy, with a slight coconut flavor that wasn’t overpowering. Very happy camper over here!

  4. Joanna says

    These were a little too dry and cakey for me. I used a sugar free maple syrup as the sweetener, 2 eggs, Walmart’s coconut flour and baked them for 22 min. I’d say bake for 18-20 min if you don’t want dry cookies. The bottoms were golden but the cookies themselves had that dry coconut flour taste. I prefer the keto almond flour cookies-solid 10/10-over these (they are chewier and more buttery) but I wanted to try them both!

  5. Anonymous says

    Absolute best cookies me and my sister have ever had. These cookies make being gluten intolerant not so bad. 10/10 recommend

  6. Emily says

    I love these! I may not serve them at a party but they are good and satisfy dessert cravings. I always keep them on hand.

    4 stars
    Amazing, the Cook Time and Total Time are both 22 minutes.
    If trying this for the first time. allow time to melt the coconut oil while preparing everything else.

    Much simpler than other recipes that call for many more ingredients.

    Coconut is naturally sweet. For my family, no need for additional sweetness.

    Almost doubled the recipe.
    2 eggs plus 7 tablespoons water

    just one portion of salt
