Is coconut flour healthy?

Coconut flour is an amazing healthy gluten-free flour. First, because it contains a high amount of fiber, protein, and iron too! Indeed, 1/4 cup of coconut flour covers 20% of iron daily value, amazing right? Then, it has very few net carbs (8g per 1/4 cup of flour. It means it is a very fulfilling flour, that release energy slowly to your body and stabilize your blood sugar level. As a result, coconut flour is great flour for diabetic or keto baking. Finally, it is a safe flour to eat raw as it is basically dried coconut meat pulsed into a thin ground.

Keto vegan cookies

I don’t eat sugar at all and my husband is vegan. That is the reason why this recipe has been tested with sugar-free sweetener as well. However, if you eat sugar, I tested the recipe with maple syrup too. Both work very well with the same amount. Check the recipe card for both nutrition panel and choose the sweetener that works the best for you. Bonus, if you love keto vegan dessert recipe, check out my mint chocolate ice cream popsicles.

Chocolate shell - Optional !


  • In a medium mixing bowl add your fresh, runny peanut butter along with sugar-free maple flavored syrup. I like to use Monk fruit syrup with maple flavor. It has barely no carbs an it is natural. Feel free to replace by regular maple syrup if you are not on sugar-free or keto diet.
  • Combine both ingredients with a spatula until it forms a shiny paste. If it is cold where you live, the peanut butter may be less soft. If so, you can microwave the ingredients for 30 seconds. It will make it easier to combine.
  • When both ingredients are combined, stir in the coconut flour and keep mixing, with the spatula at first, then with your hands, until it forms a cookie dough ball.
  • If it is too dry, this can happen if you did not measure the coconut flour carefully and add too much. Then simply, add 1-2 teaspoon of extra liquid sweetener until the ingredients comes together and a shiny cookie dough ball form.
  • Roll 8 balls of same size between your hands and place each ball onto a plate covered with parchment paper. Leave 1 thumb space between each cookie ball.
  • Flatten each cookie ball using a fork. First press the cookie ball with the back of the fork on one direction. Then, repeat on the other direction to form a cross on top of each cookie.
  • Place the plate in the fridge for 5 minutes to set the cookies.

Chocolate shell - optional

  • Meanwhile, place the sugar-free vegan chocolate chips into a bowl and microwave by 30 seconds burst, stirring between. Stop when fully melted and shiny
  • Remove the peanut butter cookies from the fridge. Dip one cookie at a time into the melted chocolate. Hold one side of the cookie and dip the other half only.
  • Place the dipped cookie onto the plate covered with parchment paper.
  • Repeat the chocolate dipping steps until all the cookies have been covered with chocolate.
  • Place the plate into the freezer for 2-5 minutes or until the chocolate shell is set.
  • Store your cookies in the fridge for 3 weeks. in a sealed container. You can also store them at room temperature they will be slightly softer.
  • You can freeze your no bake cookies too in an sealed box or bag. Defrost 1 hour before eating.

Coconut flour swap

Paleo/nut allergy

  • Replace peanut butter by sunflower seed butter


  • Don't use powdered sweetener in this recipe. It will end up very dry
  • I recommend Monk fruit syrup, Maple syrup, agave syrup or brown rice syrup

    This is labeled as three ingredients, but chocolate makes four. Also, I don’t see anything that says how much chocolate chips are needed for 8 cookies.

    • Carine

      Hi, I am no sure why you are not seeing how much chocolate chips it needs. The recipe calls for 1/2 cup of vegan sugar-free chocolate chips. As I said in the post, adding a chocolate shell is optional, technically the recipe is for no bake peanut butter cookies, which required 3 ingredients. But anyway, whatever how we count those are super easy to make and o delicious ! I really wish you give this a go and report back on how it was. Enjoy ! XOXO Carine.

    • Carine

      Hello! Coconut flour contains 4 times more fiber than almond flour. It means it is much more liquid absorbent. If you swap, be aware that you will need much more almond flour. I didn’t try this so I am not sure how much. Enjoy the recipe, XOXO Carine.

  2. Angela Sackett

    Hi, Carine – these look delicious and a great treat! Have you tried almond butter or any other nut butter? We lean toward Paleo which would mean no legumes – considering trying cashew butter, my favorite. 🙂

      No but if you track your macro closely enter the info into a nutrition app on your phone using the exact ingredient brand you are using. You will ensure full precision. Enjoy the treat! XOXO Carine.
