You may not believe me, but I have news about gluten-free coconut chocolate chip cookies: Good news, and better news.
There is nothing better during the winter months than a nice warm cup of tea or your favorite milk, with a soft- chewy but also a guilt-free cookie.
It is cold outside and if like me you have been craving some warm delicious cookies, then you are in luck because these “healthified” cookies will simply– knock your socks off. So, I decided to make these gluten-free low carb, low sugar version, that was adapted from the Vedgedout’s Chocolate-Chip coconut almond cookie recipe. Thanks, Somer. (Pay her a visit she has amazing recipes).
The good news is that, not only are they moist and decadent, they are low in carbs and also have a low glycemic index (LGI).
I am so excited to be able to share this with you because these are in fact, the best gluten-free coconut chocolate chip cookies I ever made! As a bonus, you get to nourish your body with two super healthy foods: Coconut and real Chocolate (cacao).
So to start off, I like to use fresh coconut for my coconut recipes. I feel that the texture and flavor is simply decadent. Here is a picture of my fresh shredded coconut. I like my flakes chunky, but you can shred them smaller if you prefer.
Eating fresh coconut provides an array of vitamins and minerals here are few:
- Fiber, omega-3 fatty acids (the good for your body fat)
- Calcium, potassium, iodine, zinc, magnesium, vitamin A
- Vitamin B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, B12, and Vitamin D – just to name a few
A few more reasons to add fresh coconut or coconut in any form for that matter.
I often get questions regarding the healthiest sugar alternatives. My natural sweetener of preference is: Swerve Sweetener which I often use in baking. Alcohol-free stevia, maple syrup, and raw honey. However, the reason I love swerve is that, it tastes delicious, measures just like sugar, and has zero calories. Therefore, making it Diabetic friendly and low glycemic.
Now here is the end result. decadent gluten-free, low carb, low sugar-healthy, and best gluten free coconut chocolate chip cookies I ever made! Yum! Make these for any occasion with confidence because your family or guests will absolutely devour them.
