Coconut Flour Hodgepodge Cookies

Old fashioned cookies and milk is a treat that many food-allergic families have to give up. But this grain free, coconut flour cookie recipe always satisfies!

Old fashioned cookies and milk is a treat that many food-allergic families have to give up—or settle for paltry substitutes. And if you maintain a Paleo, Primal or GAPS diet, then grain-free, cane-sugar-free treats that actually taste really good can be hard to come by too.

So, at our house, I serve these rich, moist cookies alongside a tall glass of freshly-made coconut milk, and they never fail to satisfy even the most discerning cookie lover.

I call this grain free cookie recipe “Hodgepodge Cookies” because they can be made with a hodgepodge of whatever cookie-type ingredients you have at hand. (That, and I like using old words like hodgepodge, persnickety and kerfuffle!)

The last batch I made (pictured above) had pecans, shredded coconut and cacao nibs, and they disappeared in two days! I didn’t mind though, because these cookies are relatively nutritious, too.

What hodgepodge will you mix in?

Ingredients

Cookie Base

Hodgepodge Ingredients

Add up to a total of 1 heaping cup:

  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, walnuts, macadamias, or other nuts, properly prepared ahead of time
  • 1/4 cup chopped prunes, apricots, cherries, raisins or other unsweetened, organic dried fruit
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut or dry carrot pulp from a juicer
  • 2-3 Tbsp. cacao nibs, chia seeds, sesame seeds, or other small seeds

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream the eggs, honey, and coconut oil or butter.
  • Add in the remaining ingredients and mix everything together well.
  • Drop 1-inch size balls of dough onto a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. The cookies don't spread much, so you can space them closely, about 1-2 inches apart.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 8-12 minutes, or until the tops are just barely tinged with brown.
  • Enjoy with a tall glass of your favorite milk!
