Gluten Free, Sugar Free, Dairy Free Coconut Cookies

I love coconut and I love cookies, so I thought this combo would be the perfect combo. I made them gluten, peanut and dairy free, plus I also have a veganized version to meet most of the most common dietary concerns! I love coconut because it’s rich in the favorable fats that could reduce your risk of heart disease and bolster the immune system.

Gluten, Dairy and Sugar Free Coconut Cookies
What You’ll Need:

*1/2 Cup Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour
*1/4+ 1/8 (3/8) tsp Xanthan Gum
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 cup Oil (coconut, light olive oil or expeller-pressed organic olive oil are great options)
1 Large Egg (for vegan, use egg replacer)
1/2 cup Raw Honey (for vegan, use organic maple syrup)
1 tsp Vanilla
2/3 cup Unsweetened Coconut

What You’ll Do:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grab 2 bowls; in the first, mix together flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, salt. In the second, combine oil, egg, honey and vanilla. Slowly add dry mix into the wet mix a little at a time. Fold in the coconut. Using a melon baller (or 2 spoons), roll little flattened balls onto a cookie sheet. Bake for about 8-10 minutes or until done. Place on a cooling rack for a few more. Makes about 18-20 coconut cookies. I love to serve these fun cookies with a tall glass of Unsweetened Coconut Almond Milk. Enjoy!

*You can also use Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 Baking Flour (instead of GF flour + Xanthan Gum)
