How To Make Sugar-Free Coconut Flour Cookies
All you need to make these vegan keto cookies are 5 ingredients.
- Coconut Flour – Coconut flour is a low-carb flour that is great for bringing taste and texture to recipes. Since it’s very rich in fiber, it’s essential to follow a purpose-made recipe as it can’t be substituted for any other flour.
- Extra Virgin Coconut Oil – this provides a lot of binding to the cookies.
- Erythritol or any sugar-free crystal sweetener you love. It’s a great sugar replacement in sugar-free desserts.
- Vanilla extract – for a delicious taste.
- Nut Butter – I used cashew butter or peanut butter, but the recipe works with any nut butter you love. If you’d rather use eggs, you can use an egg instead.
Making Sugar-Free Coconut Flour Cookie Batter
I made them 4 times, so I learned a lot during the process of making these coconut flour cookies. Below are my tips to make them great every single time.
The dough can be made in a food processor, with an electric beater, or with your hands!
I tested all options. I found it messy to make the dough with my hands, so I prefer to use my food processor or beat the ingredients with my electric mixer first.
It forms a crumb in like 20 seconds, and then I use my hands to gather pieces into a dough ball.
The dough is crumbly. That is normal. That is what you want to make in a delicious shortbread cookie recipe.
It needs a bit of work to gather the crumb into a dough ball – it took me about 1 minute.
The more you knead, the more the coconut oil softens/sticks to the flour and makes that dough ball come to life.
Cooling The Dough
Wrap the crumbs into a plastic wrap, and press firmly. It helps the cookie dough ball form. Place it in the fridge for 10 minutes to set.
Don’t skip the 10 minutes in the fridge. The dough needs to firm up before you roll the cookies!
The crescent shapes are cute but not the easiest to make – the dough is dry/crumbly.
Make it simple, form 12 cookie balls and press them with the back of a fork to flatten. Much faster and super cute.
Baking The Cookies
Using the fan-forced mode of your oven is the best way to bake them.
Don’t touch the cookies when out of the oven. They will be super fragile/soft. They must cool down fully on the cooking tray to get hard and crunchy.
