Nut Butter Coconut Cookies

April 3, 2020

I’m a fan of fruit for breakfast and a plateful of cruciferous veggies for dinner… but some days, we just need cookies. So if you are feeling that today, you have found your answer.


  • 2 tablespoons (10 g) ground flax or chia
  • 6 tablespoons (90 mL) water
  • 1 cup (100 g) unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup (100 g) gluten-free rolled oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt ( this can also be flaked salt to top each cookie)
  • 1 cup (240 g) almond butter, thick tahini, or your favorite nut or seed butter (I like a blend the almond and tahini)
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) pure vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons (60 mL) pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) dairy-free chocolate chips, chopped dairy-free dark chocolate bar or raisins.


  1. Mix flax or chia and water in a small bowl first, and allow to gel as an egg replacement.
  2. Measure and combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Blend in nut/seed butter, flax or chia mixture and maple syrup until mixture forms a dough. Your hands may be the best tool here.  Add chocolate or raisins and refrigerate for an hour or more.
  3. Portion cookies with a small ice cream scoop or teaspoon onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.  
  4. Bake in a preheated oven set at 350 F (180 C) for 13-15 minutes.
  5. Allow to cool and enjoy!

Makes 20-24 cookies.
