Chocolate Coconut Cookies

If you love chocolate, you’ll love this rich, Paleo dark chocolate coconut cookies recipe made with – yep – 100% Paleo ingredients. For the best flavor, use the highest quality cocoa powder you can get your hands on; it makes a difference!

Coconut flour tends to make softer cookies, so if that’s your thing, store these at room temperature. For something a little crisper, store these in an airtight container in your freezer. You won’t have to thaw them out, but you’ll be surprised and delighted at how they crisp up. Enjoy and please let us know how you like this Paleo Chocolate Coconut Cookies recipe!
