Why You'll Love This Recipe

Soft & Chewy: These Coconut Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies are soft and chewy, just like your classic chocolate chip cookies! Because they are naturally eggless, they also stay soft longer than traditional cookies with eggs!

Made with Coconut Sugar: This recipe for chocolate chip cookies made with coconut sugar is a take on the classic chicken chip! I use coconut sugar in place of cane sugar in this recipe. Coconut sugar is less processed and it has a lower glycemic index than cane sugar.

Naturally Gluten Free: I use a mix of almond flour and coconut flour that makes these Coconut Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies naturally gluten free! I love using this mix of flours as the texture is amazing!

Eggless: These healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies with Coconut Sugar are naturally eggless. I use coconut milk to replace eggs, but you could use any kind of milk you like! I love baking eggless cookies because they actually are more moist and chewy than cookies with eggs! What?! Yes, it’s true because eggs are made up of egg white and yolk — the white is mostly water, and water dries out baked goods!

Baker's Tips

  • Make sure the butter is soft. This is key for making this cookie recipe! I like to leave butter out on the counter overnight to soften naturally.
  • You can use vegan butter in place of regular butter if you need these to be vegan! My favorite vegan butter is the Miyoko’s.
  • You can use real cane sugar in place of coconut sugar in this recipe, but I’d recommend using half cane sugar and half light brown sugar for flavor.
  • Feel free leave off the flaky sea salt if you prefer. This step is completely optional, but I always prefer a sweet and salt cookie, so I love it!

FAQ's

Is coconut sugar healthier?

Coconut sugar is less processed than cane sugar, which allows it to retain some nutrients. Coconut sugar also has a lower glycemic score than classic cane sugar? But coconut sugar is still sugar as far as calories and carbs are concerned.

What makes these cookies healthier?

I use coconut sugar in place of cane sugar in this recipe, and it’s less processed and has a lower glycemic index, which makes it a healthier choice. These cookies are also naturally eggless and gluten free, which makes them a healthier option than traditional cookies made with gluten and eggs as both gluten and dairy can be inflammatory. You can even use vegan butter in place of butter, I am really partial to the real thing and I believe that eating organic butter from grass fed cows is better than a vegan butter substitute as most vegan options contain seed oils.

Can I make these vegan?

Yes! Just replace the butter with your favorite vegan butter, I recommend Miyoko’s.

How should I store these?

These cookies are soft and chewy, just like a classic chocolate chip cookie! So they need to be stored in an airtight container.
