I thought I’d try to make some sugar free cookies out of unsweetened coconut flakes. Since the carb count in coconut is very low and this recipe contains no flour, each cookie has less than 1 gram carb. These are also gluten-free. The cookies did not come out very sweet so you may want to add more sweetener or use Splenda if you like a sweeter cookie.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray baking sheet with non-stick spray.
- Combine water, erythritol, stevia, salt, and vanilla extract in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir resulting syrup and remove from heat.
- Combine the egg and coconut flakes in food processor. Add the syrup and process to form dough. Using cookie scoop, place mounds about an inch apart on baking sheet.
- Bake for 8 minutes then rotate baking pan in oven. Bake for an additional 4 minutes or until light brown. Cool on rack. Drizzle with melted chocolate, if desired.
