With only a few simple ingredients, you’ll have these chewy, chocolate coconut cookies in minutes.
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.
I guess you could say this is a chocolate cookie with a healthy twist.
