I’ve been experimenting with baking and after making these a few times I do think they fulfill the cookie urges on Stage 1 phase of this diet.
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup coconut oil
flaxseed meal – as much as you like, sometimes I put in as much as 1/4 cup
1/4 cup water or coconut milk
pinch of sea salt
2 organic eggs
stevia or xylitol or erythritol to taste (optional)
teaspoon of cinnamon (optional)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. You can put the 1/4 cup of coconut oil on the bake pan inside to melt the oil if needed. Sift the dry ingredients. Add the two eggs and mix well. Then add the melted coconut and 1/4 cup of water until the dough is soft and packing (it will be a bit crumbly)
Oil the pan well with coconut oil. Roll walnut-sized balls in your palms and pack them, then flatten them well in cookie shapes using your hands or a spatula. Make sure they are relatively flat for a crisp cookie.
Bake for 12 minutes. I usually then turn off the oven and leave them in there a few more minutes until they are golden brown and crisp. Remove from baking pan and let cool. Will make around 18 small cookies.
Enjoy! Let me know what you think if you make this 🙂October 1, 2011 at 1:23 pm #65706

Can you give me an approximate amount of xylitol (or stevia) you might use?
Thanks.October 2, 2011 at 7:39 pm #65740
granolamama, coconut is full of good fats! Good as in I’ve lost 10 lb 🙂 Macarons or do you mean macaroons? These taste nothing like macarons I’m afraid, and I never cared for macaroons so I don’t remember what they taste like. Probably not though! These are more of a morning biscuit!
Les13, I don’t like very sweet things in general which is why I didn’t add any amount. I use erythritol, which is less sweet than xylitol. I usually half of a 1/4 cup of erythritol, so half a 1/4 cup may be satisfactory enough for xylitol and your tastes.October 7, 2011 at 1:41 pm #65838

Thanks for this Pina. I just made these today although I split the amount of flax with some desiccated coconut. They’re quite good as long as you don’t expect them to taste like normal cookies. You just need to keep an open mind.
In the same way that coconut bread is not the same taste or texture as ‘normal’ bread, these cookies are a bit different but they both do a Fab job of keeping the hunger away. Didn’t I also read from someone that coconut oil and flour have anti candida properties?
Thanks for posting your recipe. 🙂October 7, 2011 at 6:12 pm #65850
Hi monita, I’m glad you enjoyed them! Yes, cookie is a bit deceptive, they’re more like a breakfast biscuit maybe? But it does satisfy my urge for baked goods, sometimes you just need a change of texture!
I am not a big fan of coconut flour to be honest, so the flax seeds help a lot in adding to the taste and texture. They are rather filling and yes coconut is a great antifungal for candida 🙂March 27, 2012 at 8:02 am #77181

I just made these but loaded up with shredded coconut and cinnamon. Still a bit dry but a nice treat for someone new to the diet!

Just for the record – sweeten to taste is no help. I didn’t see the replies before I made these. I had to sprinkle extra stevia on top to make them more palatable. I did however, find a dipping sauce recipe that goes amazingly well with these:
1cup plain greek yogurt
1 pkt stevia
1/2tsp vanilla (alcohol-free, of course)
cinnamon to taste (I used about 1/4tsp)
Chopped Hazelnuts (to sprinkle on top)
This may or may not be Phase 1 compatible, but I know I’m gonna keep making the cookies. Especially now that I have an idea of about how much stevia to use in relation to the erythritol suggestion earlier in the thread.
Thank you everyone for your contributions! you help make this diet an adventure rather than a drudge! 🙂March 9, 2016 at 10:04 am #172256
