Coconut Flour Cinnamon Sugar Cookies – Gluten & Sugar Free

I just purchased 25 lbs of coconut flour and am totally excited to try out recipes with it. Beware - lots of coconut flour recipes coming. ;)

I image all the recipes popping up on the blog have been different then what was my norm for recipes. I am going to have to get you up to date at some point, but I am taking sugar and carbs out of my diet (as much as I can) and recently am lowering my wheat intake as well.

Anyways, on to the Cinnamon Sugar Cookies, or I should say “sugar free” cookies.

Coconut Flour

I came across these in a search for chocolate chip coconut flour cookies and thought I would give these a go. Jeremiah had been asking me to make cookies, so I figured I would test these on the kids.

I showed him a picture of them, and he said “Oh yummy!”  So far so good..

I was REALLY hoping the boys would like these!  It’s hard to get kids to switch from the normal sugar to better sugars.

These were extremely simple to make, and turned out better than I had expected.  I am a cookie dough addict. I found myself NOT liking to eat this cookie dough, which made me wonder if the cookie itself was any good.

Once out of the oven, they seemed more like “cake” cookies. A different texture really, but still fluffy and good.  After they have sat for a few hours, they are even better.

I adapted this recipe from Jamie Oliver.

 I am happy to report BOTH boys loved these. This mama’s happy! These will be a staple in our home for sure.

    I’m so glad that you posted this recipe! I just need to explain why I want some of these ingredients to Randy :) I was wondering if the flour tastes like coconut? I’ve been using coconut palm sugar lately but it doesn’t have a coconutty flavor—I was kind of hoping that it would. Either way it sounds like coconut flour would be really cool to cook with! I hope to try this someday soon!

      The coconut flour is great for the phase one diet too. :) If you do get some, and want to experiment, I would keep in mind you need to use less coconut flour then you would regular flours. For example I just made brownies with it, and the recipe called for 1/2 cup reg. flour, so I used 1/4 cup coconut flour instead. It turned out great! :)

      It doesn’t REALLY taste too much like coconut though. It smells heavenly, much like the coconut sugar does. :)

    These were really tasty cookies. I am so glad the boys liked them. I will have to get on the ball and make some too. :) Thanks for experimenting with the coconut flour so we can have some more yummy treats. :)

    I have never used coconut flour before. It would totally fun to give it a try and experiment with it. I think I would start with your recipe before I did that. I noticed you mentions to use less coconut flour then regular all-purpose flour. What is the ratio?

      I am unsure the ratio for now. Although I’m thinking it’s half the flour used. I just made brownies with it, and the recipe called for 1/2 cup flour so I used 1/4 cup coconut flour. Seemed to work out just fine. :) As I experiment more, I’ll be learning more what the ratio is, but for now I’d go with half of whatever flour is called for. :)
