Easy Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies that are grain-free and gluten-free made with 6 healthy ingredients.
Happy national cookie season ya’ll.
We are making some suuuriously delicious recipes on the blog for the holidays over the next few weeks, and these coconut flour chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorites to bake and eat while I watch a million holiday movies.
They are made with 6 simple ingredients. Plus these cookies are also very doughy, soft and aren’t too rich or heavy. They also have some extra good goods for you. Can you guess what it is?
MARINE COLLAGEN! Heck yes. Recently at my healthy holiday baking class in NYC, I included Vital Proteins collagen in the goodie bags. A lot of people at the class were asking me a ton about collagen. Why I take it, how I use it, etc. I usually just have it with hot water with lemon or in my tea but I love baking with it even more. It gives recipes an extra boost that you seriously DO NOT taste at all.
Vital Proteins marine collagen is my go-to collagen. It helps support healthy digestive system, hair skin and nails, joint health and more. Anything that is supposed to be good for your hair wins 100 points in my book. But I do believe it has help tremendously (as has a balanced diet) because my hair has gotten so much thicker and longer over the past year.
And I promise you will not taste the collagen in these cookies either.
I love this cooke recipe because they are made with coconut flour and only 6 ingredients!
They are grain, gluten and dairy-free. Plus they are made with almond butter, coconut sugar and pasture-raised butter. You can likely use coconut oil in place of the butter too.
These cookies are little on the smaller side, so you don’t have to feel guilty eating 2-3 with your almond milk at the end of the day. I may or may not have finished this batch in under a week (no shame).
You can also freeze some and microwave a little to get that soft cookie consistency. I always freeze cookies to “save them for later then I just end up microwaving them frozen because I need cookies every night.. oops.
Coconut flour chocolate chip cookie FAQ:
- Does coconut flour dry out the cookies? If you don’t follow this recipe, exactly it definitely can. As long as you use the recommended amount of eggs, butter and nut butter, your cookies won’t be dry at all!
- Does coconut flour have an overpowering taste? It subtly tastes like coconut. I do think that the chocolate chips and nut butter bring out a bit more flavor in these than coconut flour does. If you have a strong aversion to coconut, try make these Soft and Chewy Banana Bread Cookies instead! Another favorite of mine.
- Is coconut flour easy to bake with? Not really, ha! It is a bit of a temperamental flour. Here is a bit more info on how I use it. The more you use it in the kitchen, the more familiar you will get with it. It adds great healthy fats to a recipe and I love that it is a grain-free and nut-free flour to use.
Let me know if you try these cookies and what you think! And most importantly, tell me if you use Vital Protein in them!

LOVE using coconut flour for cookies! These look amazing Rachel!
Julia @ PB & Julia
Mmmm yum! I have the hardest time with coconut flour. I’ll have to give this recipe a try and see if I have better luck!
Can’t wait the to try. I have the vital protein collagen in the green container. Think that will work?
I keep going back and forth on trying Vital Proteins Collagen, but I’ve heard so many good things about it. 🙂 And these cookies look like the BOMB.com. I really love chocolate chip cookies so much.
^ that was supposed to be 5-stars..
First timer with coconut flour here! Now I don’t know if it’s because of the coconut but I feel like they are a bit dry. The taste though, is quite yummy!
how odd! these are quite moist. make sure instructions were followed exactly 🙂
These look amazing..I am going to try them for sure but could you please suggest me replacement of egg to get the same consistency..thanks
hi simran – thank you! as i mention in my FAQ, if i have a sub that i have tested, it is listed here. i haven’t tested these without egg but i recommend flax or chia egg if you don’t use egg! hope you love ! xx

[…] a hidden gem in it – collagen. Yup, we have another sweet recipe with collagen in it. Those 6-ingredient Coconut Flour Chocolate Chunk Cookies, Chocolate Chip Ginger Oatmeal Cookies and Chocolate Chip Flaxseed Waffles (just to name a few) […]
I made these a couple of days ago and omg Rachel, I think this is my new favorite cookie recipe! I love how easy they are! I didn’t use the collagen, but they still taste incredible and I am struggling to keep my hands off of them! Always love your recipes xx
YAY thank you!!!
These turned out so great! I did not have the vital protein collagen so I used some organic whey powder. xx
Hi, chocolate chip cookies are my weakness so I’m looking for a healthy recipe. However I am NOT a fan of coconut flavor. Was wondering if the coconut flour and sugar have a strong coconut taste in this recipe.
i don’t think so but i love coconut. if you do not like coconut i recommend making another cookie on here 😉
Delicious! Thank you, I tried it with crunchy PB and they were amazing…though they did not make it to the pan, whoops.
Omg Rachel, I just made these using
– 1/3 coconut butter instead of almond or cashew
– 2 tbsp honey instead of coconut sugar
– 2 tbsp kerry gold butter
and they turned out fantastic!! They remind me of short bread cookies from the butter, which I grew up on and wow! I’m blown away with how coconutty but yet how subtle the coconut flavor is! I totally think chilling them 10 mins prior does wonders and they are the utmost moist with that delectable crumble at the same time. New all time fav healthy co(co)ookie recipe ever! Thank you!!
Finally made these today, and they are SO good and super simple. Thanks for a great chocolate chip cookie recipe to feed my addiction! ??

i was wondering if i can chill the dough and then make the cookie shapes?
i haven’t done that but i am sure you can! just let the dough stay out for about 30 minutes before forming into cookies!
These were great and easy! Thanks Rachel.
