How to make chocolate coconut cookies

This recipe is all about coconut (in case you didn’t notice yet). You’re gonna need coconut flour, coconut milk, coconut oil and shredded coconut. The coconut is naturally sweet, so you don’t need to add extra sugar, only a little bit of stevia powder for those who (like me) likes some extra sweetness.

Ingredients (9 or 10 cookies)

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of oat flour
  • 1/2 cup of coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup of shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil
  • Stevia powder

Topping:

  • 25 gr of dark chocolate 85% cocoa
  • 3 tbsp of coconut milk
  • 1 tsp of shredded coconut

Tips on how to melt the chocolate: The easiest way is the microwave. Place the chocolate in a bowl and heat at medium power for 1 minute and then in intervals of 30 seconds. Every time you take it our, stir the chocolate and put it back in the microwave. Another option is over a bain marie. To melt chocolate in a bain marie, you only need a pot and a heatproof bowl. Cover the bottom of a pot with water, but not more than half its capacity, and place the bowl on top. It is important that this bowl does not touch the bottom of the pot. Then, heat it over low power so that the water takes temperature gradually. Stir the chocolate till its completely melted.
