Grain Free 5-Minute Breakfast Cookies (made with coconut flour!)

by Lisa Beach, Ph.D.

I decided to continue my posting trend about coconut flour, and share another grain free healthy recipe! If you missed my other posts about this, check out the background information plus a recipe here, and a pizza crust recipe here.

5 Minute Stovetop Coconut Flour Cookies
2 eggs
2 tbsp coconut flour
2 tbsp melted coconut oil
1 scoop protein powder (21g – I used SunWarrior brand, but I honestly think Jay Robb would be better) – I bet you could just sub in a little more coconut flour for this if you aren’t into protein powders.
a few drops of stevia (to taste), or a splash of maple syrup (to taste)

First, in a frying pan over medium heat, add just over 2 T coconut oil to melt.

Next, in a bowl, add all the other ingredients. Add the melted oil to the bowl, and mix with a fork till well-combined. Taste the dough and add more sweetener if needed. You can add things to these—chocolate chips, nuts, cinnamon, seeds, etc.

Roll the dough into balls with your hands and flatten (they won’t rise or change shape in the pan). Place the cookies in the pan, brown on each side and then eat! They would be fabulous with nut butter, chocolate, or even cream cheese on them. I ate them plain and was completely happy. This will make about 7 cookies, depending on how big you make them.

These are a great texture and flavor...you could use maple syrup or some other sweetener if you don't like stevia.

I'm imagining these dipped in peanut butter....or sunbutter...or chocolate pudding :-)

This is the closest I've gotten to a real cookie texture with coconut flour. Still not really "chewy" but way more like a cookie than other recipes! I love this texture--it reminds me of a specific cookie my grandma made when I was a kid.

These are a great quick and easy breakfast, snack, or even dessert!  I have a brownie version of these too, so if you'd like that, leave a comment on this post and I'll share it with you!
