Gluten-Free White Chocolate and Coconut Cookies

Two weeks ago while at CES, Lori and I were laying in bed trying to decide where to go for dinner when she pulled out a gluten-free white chocolate and coconut cookies. My first thought, where the heck did you get a cookie? She mumbled it was part of my press lunch. Lori is on a strict gluten free diet, so her press lunch is different than mine, hence my unexpected response to the cookie. She gave me a piece and to my surprise, it was beyond good. I was almost ashamed to ask for a second bite because the last few days hasn’t been a walk in the park for her when it comes to what she can eat. Having no shame, I asked for another bite, and she gladly obliged. I spent the rest of the night thinking about that darn coconut cookie, hence today’s post. So here is my attempt to recreate that wonderful, chewy gluten-free cookie.

Gluten-Free White Chocolate and Coconut Cookies

I ended up using a lot more eggs than anticipated because coconut flour soaks up lots of liquid and to avoid a dry cookie; I had to adjust accordingly.

The kids enjoyed pairing the Coconut Cookies with  Nestlé Nesquik® Chocolate Milk. It is made with 100% real milk and has 8g of protein in every 8 fluid ounces serving plus it’s gluten-free which makes it an ideal choice.

Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, slightly softened (2 sticks)
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1½ tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups coconut flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup white chocolate morsels
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and set aside.
  2. Using a hand mixer, cream the butter, both brown and white sugar and beat until fluffy about 2 minutes. Add the coconut oil, eggs, and vanilla extract.
  3. Slowly add the flour mixture, be careful not to over mix. Fold in your shredded coconut and chocolate morsels
  4. Cover with a plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 2 hours, or overnight.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°F and line your baking sheets with parchment paper
  6. Using an ice cream scooper or large tablespoon, scoop out the dough and roll them in the palm of your hands into 1 inch balls then place on the baking sheet making sure they're at least 2-inches apart
  7. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes or until slightly golden around the edges.
  8. Cool on a baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely. You can store the cookies in an airtight container for up to a week.
