Chocolate Chip Coconut Rum Cookies – Gluten Free + Dairy Free {Recipe Review}

This recipe is: gluten free, dairy free, primal, paleo

Oh. My. Goodness.
I am a huge cookie fan. Are you? I don’t get into cakes or
most pastries, but I LOVE cookies. My favorite kind is the warm, gooey and soft
cookies, preferably with chocolate oozing out.
If that type of cookie sounds like something you’d go for,
I’d HIGHLY suggest this recipe. I found it off of Preparing
It Paleo
over the summer, and am so glad I did! Unfortunately though, it
doesn’t look like the blog is updated anymore.

This is the recipe: {My edits have brackets around them}

Chocolate Chip Coconut Rum Cookies
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup grated coconut {3/4 cup unsweetened coconut shreds}
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • {1 tsp xanthan gum}

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup dark rum {I used Bacardi Gold}
  • 1/4 coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup {dark amber, pure syrup}
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Add in:
1-2 chops chocolate chips or chocolate chunks {OR 1½ cups of
chocolate chips of your sweetness levels. I would suggest a darker chocolate}
Preheat oven to 375F. Mix dry and wet separately, each in
their own bowls. Combine. Stir in chocolate chips. Allow batter to sit for a
few minutes (coconut flour will absorb some of the moisture). Spoon onto a
cookie sheet (should make 24 cookies). Bake for 10 minutes. Cool.
The recipe itself a basic mix and bake batch of cookies, but
that doesn’t mean they won’t go quickly! I made one batch, which made about 12
cookies or so. I don’t even think they made it an hour they were so good.

Overall: A
great batch of cookies with flexible sugar quantities, which is always good for
Paleo and non-Paleo eaters.  You can
always tweak sugars like honey, syrup and of course the chocolate you use to
fit your sugary needs.
