Chocolate Coconut Cookies are chewy, crunchy, toasted coconut cookies that taste like an almond joy! Gluten free made with coconut flour!

Chocolate dipped coconut cookies are amazing for two reasons. First, I love their crisp yet chewy texture and toasty coconut flavor. Mm, I’m feeling some serious Almond Joy vibes y’all. Second, I love how easy they are. Honestly, they’re only six ingredients and that includes salt!

You could serve them exactly as is, but I like to take them one step further and dip them in chocolate because… chocolate is always a good idea in my opinion.

The backstory behind these cookies:

I used to go to this sushi buffet that had the best crunchy coconut cookies. I’ve been dreaming about them since I moved away from the buffet restaurant and have since tried to recreate them on numerous occasions.

These babies are pretty damn close. Jaryd ate them and asked me to put them on the blog. He was like, “You haven’t put them on the blog yet? You definitely need to put these on the blog!”

Like ok ok, don’t rush me!

How to make these coconut flour cookies:

In a medium bowl, combine the shredded coconut, coconut flour, and sea salt. Add the coconut oil and agave, and mix everything until it’s combined. Then, form little cookie discs on a lined baking sheet.

Bake for 12 minutes, then let them sit on the baking sheet and let them cool completely before you transfer them to the cooling rack. When they are cool, melt the chocolate in a microwave for 1.5 minutes, stirring after 1 minute.

Take each cookie and dip it into the chocolate. Place it back on the cooling rack or on parchment paper. I placed mine in the fridge for 5 minutes to expedite the chocolate hardening process 🙂
