Chocolate Cake Cookies
I could eat chocolate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This is the fuel that fires me up to always try to create healthy chocolate recipes that are so healthy you could even eat them for breakfast! This recipe does the trick. It is also a perfect recipe for those who are gluten, dairy, or egg intolerant.
- 3/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2 Tbsps cocoa powder
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 6 Tbsp gelatin
- 6 Tbsp + 3/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- Optional: sometimes I like to give my chocolate treats a mocha flavor. When I do this, I just add one packet of my favorite coffee to the mix. This stuff is a super healthy mushroom coffee, so it makes the chocolate treat a healthy mocha treat!
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Line two baking sheets with Siplat or parchment paper, it's important to do this ahead of time.
3. Combine coconut flour, baking soda, cocoa powder, and sea salt in a mixing bowl.
4. Melt coconut oil and honey and pour into dry ingredients. Stir together and set aside.
5. Combine 6 Tbsp gelatin and 6 Tbsp water and stir, it will be thick and clumpy.
6. Bring 3/4 cup water to a boil and pour into the gelatin mixture. It will melt the gelatin and dissolve the chunks. I use a fork to mash the chunks. It will become a liquid, slightly foamy.
7. Pour into the rest of the batter.
8. Mix well, it will be thin at first but will thicken in about one minute.
9. Take your cookie scoop and act fast. Get those cookies onto the sheets before the gelatin gels.
10. Scoop all the batter at once because it will gel, I scoop the extra onto parchment and transfer to the baking sheet when the first batches are done. I learned this lesson the hard way.
11. Bake for 10 minutes, until they flatten out.
12. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely on the sheet. They will fall apart if you do not allow them to cool.
13. Store in a Tupperware with parchment between the layers of cookies. Keep them in the fridge.
14. They last for about a week in the fridge.

Mushroom coffee?! Must check this out!
followed directions exactly, only made 24 cookies, (not a problem- i dont think) but theyve been in oven for 15 minutes so far and have not flattened out. not sure if i keep them in til they flatten (hoping that in fact they will?!) or take them out before they burn? thanks.
Hmmmm, I am not sure why they won’t flatten. Did you add the correct amount of gelatin? Did you use a different kind of gelatin?
I just made these & have one in my mouth right now – YUM!!! This is such a great recipe!!! Totally takes care of a chocolate craving.
Do they taste like coconut, I have been afraid to bake with coconut flour as I dont like the taste of coconut?
Nope, they taste like chocolate 🙂
Do you think these will work okay if I sub the honey for water + stevia packets? Or maybe applesauce for the honey?
I think it should work. Give it a try and let me know how it turns out!
