Chocolate Coconut Cookies {vegan, gluten-free}

With only a few simple ingredients, you’ll have these chewy, chocolate coconut cookies in minutes.

You're going to love these chewy, coconut & chocolate cookies made from a few simple ingredients. Not too sweet but perfect for dessert or breakfast.

Today, I’m excited to share with you this recipe for Chocolate Coconut Cookies! They’re super easy to make and taste absolutely yummy…the coconut toasts right up around the outsides of the cookies so you’re left with a delicious toasted coconut and rich chocolate cookie! You’re going to have to try them for yourself and see.

This recipe is simple, requiring just 7 ingredients and under 30 minutes from start to finish (because no one likes to wait much longer for cookies).

Another perk? These chocolate coconut cookies are naturally sweetened with coconut sugar, and instead of butter I used coconut oil instead. They’re also infused with cacao powder (not to be confused with cocoa) for that extra healthy, chocolate-y twist.  To finish these off, I thought it would be a little fun to add some fresh berry jam in the center and “boy” was I right.  I already love the coconut & chocolate combination but when you get a subtle bite of berries mixed in, it’s almost refreshing.

      Hey Alisa! Yes, so few ingredients but lots of flavor & texture. The jam for sure is one of my favorite additions. I just love the all things berries & chocolate.

      Thanks Lindsey & glad you messaged me on IN with your question (I saw it faster there). But if you or anyone else is without Brown Rice Syrup, you can use real maple syrup or even agave. Honey is also an option if you are not vegan.

    […] This cool, creamy dessert is everything you’re looking for in a coconut cream pie but be sure to add a layer of dairy-free whipped cream on top to take things to the next level.  And because we are coo-coo for coconut, we’re going to add some toasted coconut just for the fun of it! And in case you love coconut as much as I do, how about trying Coffee Granita with Sweetened Condensed Coconut Cream, Coconut Cloud Cheesecake Bar or Chocolate Coconut Cookies {vegan, gluten-free}.
