Cookies are everyone’s favorite simple treat. And there are few simple reasons behind that. These cookies can be incredibly versatile in terms of flavor; they are super easy to make, and they can last for days. When you want to give classic chocolate chip cookies a rest, try these buttery coconut cookies.
I made these cookies numerous times, every time changing the recipe a bit. And I am pretty sure that this one is THE recipe. The ingredients are simple, and you probably have them in your pantry all the time.
I’ve made them with lard (yes, lard is fantastic for making cookies), coconut oil, butter, and somehow realized that the coconut oil and butter combination works the best. Of course, you can use just one kind of fat.
If you are allergic to nuts, these coconut cookies are for you – no almond flour! If you are allergic to gluten – these guys are gluten-free! In case you are super strict with your daily carb intake, each cookie contains less than 1g of net carbs!
When the occasion calls for it, you can fancy these buttery cookies up (I just made up a word, I think) and dip them into chocolate, sprinkle with coconut or almond flakes, crushed hazelnut, etc.
The nutrition information calculated below is for the batch of 15 cookies without the chocolate coat. If you decide to do so, don’t forget to add the calories for all the ingredients you are using.
