These banana sweetened coconut flour cookies with 100% chocolate chips, make for one healthy no sugar added baked treat without any of the guilt! Gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, low-carb + keto diet friendly.
In an effort to cut down on consuming sugar (even if it’s unrefined 99% of the time!), I took to experimenting with fruit-sweetened baked goods. This result is a beautifully textured, delicious, and ridiculously healthy coconut flour cookie that makes a perfect complement to 100% chocolate chips (or any chocolate of your choice!).

Both soft and dense with a delightfully pillowy melt-in-your-mouth texture.
Made with nutritious low-carb, high-protein, high-fiber coconut flour (read more about it’s health benefits: HERE).
Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free (apart from natural fruit sugars!), Soy-Free, Nut-Free and Dairy-Free.
Quick and easy to make!
Tips for making Gluten-Free Coconut Flour Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies:
Due to the unique nature of coconut flour, I do not recommend substituting it with anything else.
Don’t want to use bananas? You can substitute the banana with 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey, 1/4 cup applesauce or yogurt, or for a completely sugar-free diabetic and KETO friendly treat, use a sugar-free sweetener such as this one AND omit the tapioca starch.
The tapioca flour in this recipe can be omitted with only slightly different results texturally.
The cookie dough can be covered and refrigerated for up to two days before baking if necessary.
You can use any chocolate of your choice, but for a truly no sugar added option that is wholly delicious, I absolutely love these sugar-free 100% chocolate chips from Pascha.
These cookies store well in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. And in my opinion, they taste amazing straight from the fridge!
