Triple Coconut Cookies (Gluten-Free)

Yes, this is a cookie without chocolate. Once in a while, I will make a cookie that doesn’t involve chocolate, but it is rare.

These cookies are for the coconut lovers out there. It uses coconut oil, shredded coconut, and coconut extract. Plus, they are not only vegan, but they are gluten-free and naturally-sweetened. They are super quick to put together and would be perfect for your holiday baking.

MAKES 12-15 COOKIES


INGREDIENTS
– 4 ounces white rice flour
– 2 ounces brown rice flour (or sub white rice flour)
– 3 ounces almond flour
– 7 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
– 5 tablespoons maple syrup
– 1 teaspoon coconut extract (or sub vanilla extract)
– 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut


DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 325F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Put all of the ingredients into a food processor and mix until it forms a ball (you can mix by hand too, but its not as quick.)
3. Form into 12-15 balls (I use a cookie scoop) and flatten.
4. Bake for 17 minutes, or until the cookies are starting to get very lightly browned.

Running with Veggies

I'm a plant-based distance runner and mother of two young girls. I enjoy making healthy recipes and experimenting with food. I also love to garden, so you will see many seasonal recipes that use what is currently growing in my backyard. I have a HBSc. in Nutrition and a Doctorate in Education and this background provides me with the skills necessary to pursue my passion - educating others on healthy eating. I don't count calories, so you won't find any nutritional information in my recipes. However, I strive to make each recipe healthy enough to fuel you and your family through the day.
