Chocolate Coconut Cookies

Ingredients:

1/3 cup coconut oil, not melted
2/3 cup coconut sugar, or coconut "crystals"
2 large free-range eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 tablespoons coconut flour, sifted
1/4 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Beat the coconut oil and the sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the eggs and continue beating on medium until well combined. Stir in the vanilla.
  3. Add the coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt and stir until just combined. If using chocolate chips, fold them in.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or lightly coat with coconut oil. Drop the cookies about 2 inches apart, and bake for 10-12 minutes, until cookies are set. Allow to cool before moving from pan.
