Makes: about 20 2-inch cookies

½ cup/30 g unsweetened shredded coconut
1½ cups/120 g finely ground blanched almond flour
¼ cup/30 g coconut flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon fine sea salt
½ cup/115 g butter, preferably from pastured cows, at room temperature
1 cup/150 g coconut sugar, or 1 cup/200 g granulated sugar
1 farm-fresh, free-range egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup/170 g fair-trade dark chocolate chips

1. Preheat the oven to 325°F/165°C. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
2. Spread out the coconut on one of the baking sheets and toast in the oven until light brown and fragrant, about 5 minutes, but start watching after 4 minutes so it doesn’t burn. Set aside to cool for several minutes. Increase the oven temperature to 350°F/180°C.
3. Using a wire whisk or a fork, mix together the toasted coconut, almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.
4. Using a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or a handheld electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar on low speed until smooth, about 3 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and the paddle. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until blended.
5. Add the almond flour mixture and beat until just incorporated. Briefly beat in the chocolate chips. Cover the dough and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (and up to 2 days) before baking.
6. Spoon rounded teaspoons of the dough onto the baking sheets approximately 2 in/5 cm apart.
7. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until the cookies are starting to brown around the edges but still look slightly underdone in the center (they’ll continue to cook a bit after you take them out of the oven).
8. Remove the cookies from the oven. Allow them to rest for 1 or 2 minutes on the baking sheets, and then, using a spatula, carefully transfer to a cooling rack. (If you transfer them too soon, they’re likely to crumble.) Wait a few more minutes before serving or until completely cooled before storing in an airtight container. The cookies should keep for 4 to 5 days.


Happy Gluten-Free Holidays!
