Happy Friday! You made it through the week and hopefully, made it a great week. Either way, it would be good to have some time to decompress, get outside, move with you family, eat good food and prepare a little for the week ahead.
I like to do some baking on Sundays to add to the girls’ school lunches during the week. For those of you who don’t know our eldest daughter has food allergies to nuts, peanuts, sesame, fish, shellfish and our youngest daughter has a gluten intolerance, so finding good HEALTHY treats is difficult. Yes, there are a lot of gluten-free, nut-free packaged foods but I am always amazed by how much sugar is packed into one little treat.
With this recipe, I used maple syrup which is still sugar but I believe, in moderation, is WAY better than what you find in those packages.
So when I realized that I didn’t have all the ingredients for my go-to Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. I had to get creative in the kitchen.
Give the recipe a try and let me know what you think.
Two thumbs up from the girls!
Chocolate Chip Coconut Butter Cookies (Gluten-free, Allergy-friendly – free of eggs, dairy, nuts, peanuts, sesame)

Serves: 16 cookies
Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes Total time: 30 minutes
6 tablespoons of melted coconut butter
1/4 cup of coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup of pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
1 cup of tapioca flour
1/2 cup of coconut flour
1 teaspoon of sea salt
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 cup of Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a small pot put the coconut butter and coconut oil and melt over low heat.
Once melted, remove from heat and add the maple syrup and vanilla extract. Stir until all ingredients are mixed.
In a medium bowl, mix together the tapioca flour, coconut flour, salt and baking powder.
Once mixed, add the wet ingredients and combine well. Add the chocolate chips.
Using your hands, or a small ice cream scoop, form small balls of dough and place them on the prepared cookie sheet. Using slightly damp fingers, give each ball a little push to flatten.
Once the tray is full, place cookies in the preheated oven for 10-14 minutes, depending on how you like your cookie. Let cool on a wire cookie rack completely before serving. Enjoy!
