Easy to make no egg cookies made low carb and gluten free. These coconut flour cookies are a simple treat that take little time to prepare.
It looks like my egg fast diet days are over. Although I've always lost weight after egg fasting, I probably did more harm than good. That's because my body hasn't been digesting the egg whites properly which has caused my immune system to react.
A blood test confirmed that I have a severe sensitivity to egg whites. It might be possible to desensitize using allersode drops. It's best to avoid eggs for a few months and stay away from the whites for the most part.
I think my food sensitivities, particularly the reaction to egg whites, is the main reason why I could never lose those last ten pounds. After avoiding the most common allergenic foods for a month, six of those ten pounds came off effortlessly.
Since the holiday season is here, I set out to bake some no egg cookies that I can enjoy. And, as luck would have it, samples of the new ChocZero Honest Syrup arrived in the mail.
I was pretty excited to try this new syrup in an egg-free coconut flour cookies recipe I found at The Coconut Mama. I didn't want to use the high carb honey so Choc Zero caramel syrup looked like the perfect substitute.
This syrup is a brand new product from Choc Zero. In fact, it's not available in stores yet. However, I was lucky enough to get to preview the product for all of you. And, it's definitely a keeper!
Although I'm still avoiding chocolate, I did have to try a sample of the chocolate syrup. It's thick and rich like fudge sauce. And, the flavor is just as good as my favorite ChocZero chocolate candy.
When I made the no egg cookies, I only flattened the cookie dough slightly. In a later batch, I flattened them out a lot more. The great thing about this recipe is that it's very versatile.
If you like thin crisp cookies, you'll want to flatten out the dough balls into thinner bigger rounds. I prefer a crisp outside yet somewhat chewy inside to my cookies. And, that's what I got by only pressing the dough balls down slightly.
Now, my cookies were a thicker mini size when compared to the thinner cookies. But, I liked the texture better. I suppose I could have taken the thinner cookies out of the oven sooner so they didn't get as crisp.
In any case, the ChocZero caramel syrup successfully replaced the raw honey in the original egg-free coconut flour cookies. And, I make these in a double batch because you don't get a lot of dough from the original recipe.
I also tried the chocolate syrup in the cookie recipe. It worked too, but I liked the taste of the caramel flavored batch much better. It tasted a bit like salted caramel cookies.
For those looking for an awesome replacement for honey, maple syrup, and molasses in their favorite recipes, give the caramel or maple pecan syrup a try. And, if you love thick fudge sauce, you must try the chocolate flavor.
So, what are the ingredients in the syrups. You'll be happy to know each syrup is made from simple all natural ingredients. With only 2g net carbs per tablespoon, it's certainly a real treat!
The thickness comes from liquid vegetable fiber and the sweetness comes from low carb monk fruit sweetener. And, there's no sugar alcohols or preservatives.
I don't recommend eating too many sweets on any diet. But for those occasional treats, the new Honest Syrups by ChocZero is a great choice for baking or adding as a topping to low carb ice cream.
You can also use the syrup to flavor hot or cold beverage. And, the Maple Pecan flavor is perfect for serving with my coconut flour pancakes or almond flour pancakes!

I think you'll want to stock up on some of the ChocZero Honest Syrup just to bake up these delicious cookies! Although I didn't try the Maple Pecan flavor, I bet they would make an awesome cookie too.
For another great little treat, give my keto coconut macaroons a try. They are little bites of heaven for coconut lovers.
What would you use these low carb syrups for? I'd like to see how the caramel syrup does in my low carb pecan pie.

Thank you! Can’t wait to try it this afternoon.
I, too, developed an egg allergy after an extended period of going egg-crazy on Whole30 and Keto. I developed a lot of food allergies, actually, but the eggs are the big one. So crazy. Of all the research I’ve done trying to figure out wth, this recipe description that you wrote is the only other documentation I have been able to find of this happening to anyone else.
I’ve gotten my hands on some duck eggs, so I’m going to try those out this week. I’ll let you know how I do. Have you tried duck eggs yet?
Yes! Duck eggs are great but harder to find. I did locate a farmer who sells them. They also bake things much fluffier than chicken eggs.
I am STRUGGLING with my first batch (by myself) of coconut flour cookies. Hi Lisa, Can you please help me. AND I will try your recipes. I need assistance especially with regards to liquid. I don't mind using eggs, the recipe I have (below) doesn't call for it. The batter doesn't hold together. Should I use a couple T of water? The recipe and ingredients I found and was following is on the back of JANS Organic Coconut Flour bag.
Please let me know if you can assist, I am abbreviating obvious words. Here is the recipe: 2 C Co flour 1/2 C Co sugar 1/2 t BP 1/2 t baking s 1/2 t salt 1/2 C Choc Chip 1/3 C solidified C oil 2 T Alm Milk 2 t Vanilla extract.
I haven't put the choc chips in yet. I am trying to form 2 cookies with and with out the chips. I am miffed. the recipe made looks like pure white sand, NOT a batter or CLOSE!-
Thank you Lisa ..., Lisa E. ~ So Florida
Coconut flour can be very absorbent. So you could try adding in more oil or almond milk. Adding an egg should help too.
What a great little recipe! I used 1 Tbs of Maple Syrup and 1 Tbs of Honey for the sweetener. And I decided to add one scoop of Quest Vanilla Protein Powder. Because of this additional dry ingredient, I had to add some water until I was able to obtain a cookie dough consistency. These came out tasty! Thank you so much for sharing!
I tried these cookies and it came out moist and crumbly, like shortbread.
I made some revisions to the recipe:
1. I replaced the sauce with half a banana. Next time, I'll use either 1 or 1.5 bananas since it wasn't sweet enough for me.
2. I used about 2-3 TBSP of unsweetened flakes
Next time, I might top these with various jams and/or add more coconut flakes for a macaroon taste.
Thanks for the recipe. Loved it and so simple!
I got 5 cookies instead of 16?
If you look at the photo of the cookies next to the teacup, you can get an idea of the size of my cookies. I made them mini sized.
