Coconut Roll-Out Cookies

Most coconut flour cookies taste like cardboard, so I was reluctant to create a recipe for one. Yet, after countless people asking for this, I did and am pleasantly surprised at how they turned out …. they roll like a dream and are as moist as I could get without dough falling apart.

This all around versatile cookie is great for anyone needing to avoid grain, sugar, or flour. Or anyone who is Paleo, B.E.D., or simply wanting a healthier option. Can’t eat eggs? Try my almond cookies.

In this recipe, I use vegetable glycerine. This sweetener doesn’t feed harmful yeast or bacteria in the body, which makes it an ideal sugar substitute for those with diabetes or using The Body Ecology Diet to heal a yeast or bacterial overgrowth-related health issue (i.e. Candida, GBS+). Glycerine doesn’t influence blood sugar or insulin release.

These are a fun treat for kids of all ages to decorate for Easter, Valentine’s, or Christmas 💞

Coconut Roll-Out Cookies 

Prep time: 15 min // Cook time: 5-10 min

Makes: 1 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut flour*
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup ghee or coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup vegetable glycerine
  • 3 Tbsp coconut milk (or another milk)*
  • 1 tsp vanilla or almond extract (alcohol-free)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Method

  • Combine coconut flour, salt,.
  • Mix oil, sweetener and almond extract in a small bowl.
  • Mix wet and dry ingredients.
  • Place dough in fridge for 1 hour.
  • Roll dough between two pieces of wax paper, 1/4-inch thick.
  • Remove top piece of wax paper and sprinkle dough with a bit of coconut flour.
  • Cut cookies into shapes.
  • Place shapes on parchment-lined cookie sheet with metal spatula.
  • Bake at 350 degrees until edges are light brown, 8-12 minutes.
  • Cool before handling or they will break.

Tips & Tricks

  • Use ghee or cultured butter instead of the coconut oil.
  • I never tried, but you might be able to substitute another thick milk for coconut milk. 
  • If you tolerate honey, swap 1/4 cup honey for the glycerine.
  • This is a friendly recipe for those on a Paleo, B.E.D*, or GAPS.
  • Another cookie recipe while healing is my almond roll out cookies (egg-free)
  • These cookies are easy-to-digest and combine fairly well with animal protein.
  • Frost with my flax frosting or basic white frosting (free of gluten, dairy, refined sugar).

*If you’re on the early stage of Body Ecology Diet or another gut-healing diet, you may want to culture the coconut flour and milk to introduce enzymes and probiotics which make this recipe easier to digest. If you skip this step, then make this an occasional or transitional treat.

    Technically, no it would not be as coconut manna is pureed mature coconut and unless fermented would not be allowed on stage 1 of B.E.D. Straight up coconut oil is fine though. That said, a serving size of manna contains just 1 gram of sugar so unless your kids have a hard time digesting fat I would give it a go and limit intake; watching for symptoms of skin rashes, etc. When my kids were on the initial stage of the diet, I created almond hearts which are yummy sort of fat bomb made with coconut oil 🙂 Recipe at http://www.happybellies.net/the-digestive-system/almond-hearts-body-ecology-diet/

    Hi Ashlee, this recipe uses a liquid glycerin only. I am sure you can use lakanto though you might need to fix the dry to wet ratios if you do. Let us know if you play with things 🙂

    Hello! Thanks so much for the recipe! Did you leave out 1/4 cup Lakanto in this recipe, as is included in your Almond Roll-Out recipe? Thanks in advance for the feedback!
