06 Feb Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
This was the first time I was trying out coconut flour for cookies. I was pleasantly surprised with the results. It did yield a very soft crumbly cookie that was delicious and the kids enjoyed them! Coconut flour is a grain free flour so perfect for those following a grain and gluten-free diet. Coconut flour is rich in fibre and protein and low in carbohydrates and a great alternative for those who have prediabetes or diabetes or anyone watching their blood sugars.
When it comes to baking with coconut flour you need to use a lot of liquid and since it’s a very absorbent flour so a little goes a long way. These cookies are not grain free or paleo friendly since I did use oats and whole wheat flour.
