Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

post banner cavemanfeast Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is one of the first Paleo recipes I ever tackled after starting this lifestyle and drooling over the daily food pornography from my Amazing Friends Hayley and Bill at The Food Lovers Primal Palate.  Here are their delicious Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies.  The best part of these is the raw organic honey keeps the insides of these chewy for days and its like no other cookie texture I have ever had.

Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 12
  1. Preheat oven to 375 (That's degrees Fahrenheit with the oven set to bake for you non kitchen people haha)
  2. In a large bowl, combine coconut oil, raw honey, eggs, vanilla extract, and sea salt. (To make your life easier, in a small bowl on the side, combine the raw honey and coconut oil and melt in the microwave before mixing it in)
  3. Add in your coconut flour.
  4. Stir in the shredded coconut and chocolate chips.
  5. On parchment lined baking sheets, drop heaping tablespoons of cookie batter.(Ensure you form them to look like the cookies you want for a final product as these do not rise or spread like conventional cookies, which also means you can place more on a baking sheet without worrying about them touching)
  6. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Remove from the oven, transfer to a cooling rack and then enjoy with a nice cup of coconut milk.

  1. Hello! Thanks for the recipe- the first 9 are in the oven now. Something went oddly though because my batter was very thin, not cookie batter like but more like pancake batter. So- I added (twice) a half cup of ground rolled oats (so twice half a cup to equal a full cup). The batter was then more stable but was still a loose chunky. I live in Holland- who knows- maybe being at sea level matters..?

  2. I’d like to make these for a cookie exchange – could you say about how many cookies this makes? I need to know if I should double / quadruple the recipe to make enough for a crowd!

  3. With some recent findings coming out about the health benefits brought by coconut this cookies are very timely. Thankyou for the tip on the raw organic honey. Didn’t know that it can be a natural preservative. Can’t wait to try this out with my kids, I’m sure they will love it.

  4. Delicious. Except mine fell apart. What did I do wrong?

  5. I love these cookies! They’re so easy to make and they are delicious. My friend and I make them all the time. (Don’t eat too many or your stomach will hurt!)

  6. These are great!

  7. Hi
    We have tried to make these twice and both times the batter looks to have split. We tried baking the second batch to see and the top half looked great but underneath it was more the texture of an omlette. Any ideas?
    We have made loads of your recipes and they have all turned out fantastic. Hope you can help as these look fantastic.
    Many thanks

  8. Hi
    Help! I have tried twice to make these and both times the batter looks like it splits, we tried cooking the second batch and the top looked ok but the bottom had more of an omelette texture. What am I doing wrong? Desperate to try these as we have tried a number of your recipes and all have turned out fantastic but we are scratching our heads on this one.
    Look forward to hearing from you.

    • Neil I have never heard of that, this recipe is made all the time with the utmost success. Unless I watched you I am clueless, unless you aren’t using raw organic honey and it is too liquidy. The other possibility that is if you heat any of your ingredients that they are cooking the eggs before you bake them

    Delicious! Next time I’m going to leave the chocolate chips out, then dip them in melted chocolate – I think they’ll taste even better than my chocolate macaroons! Thanks for another great recipe :)

  10. These were awesome! These cookies turned out soft and yummy (and not “yummy for paleo cookies”), but really yummy!!!

  11. Becky D says:

    Just came out of my oven and YUM! This recipe is a keeper for sure!! Thanks for a great treat and doesn’t taste like “health food” cookies.

  12. These are very yummy!! Combination of my two faves, chocolate & coconut!!! They are a teeny bit sweet though! Even our 7 yr old son loves em!!

  13. HOLY WOW!

    Yeah, these are going in my “weekend cooking” plan right beside caveman crunch. At this rate my entire eating plan is going to be made up of things from your site! :)

    Now… how do I not eat the whole plate of cookies in one sitting? ;-)

  14. “Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies | Civilized Caveman Cooking Creations” Shades in reality got myself addicted with your web page!

    Thanks -Cathryn

    was certainly compelling and beneficial! In modern society that
    is difficult to do. Regards, Martin

  16. Would maple syrup work in place of the honey? Or would it be too runny?

  17. Greg Walker says:

    These are very good. Soft but don’t fall apart when you pick them up. Tasty and a welcome treat for a cheat.

  18. These are so delish! I have a craving for them and was going to make them but just realized I am out of eggs and considering there is the biggest snow storm ever going on right now….they will have to wait until tomorrow :( The Caveman Feast cook book is mandatory to any paleo kitchen!

  19. Scrumptious! So quick to make, sustaining so I wont need another one…for a wee while :0) I used the sabayon method to mix the eggs & oil…is that what you do C.Caveman?
    Also I used 85% dark organic fair trade chocolate…divine! Thanks for your awesome recipe, will be trying others of yours :D

    • Well Sheryl if I had the slightest inclination as to what the sabayon method is, I would concur. So in other words, I mix my stuff whatever way seems faster :) Hope you love more of my recipes :)

  20. Heather Schwartz says:

    These are absolutely freaking amazing! And, so easy! Why feel the need to really cheat when you can have cookies like these? YUM!!!

  21. What are the calories, fat, etc counts ?

    • Aileen, I do not count calories or calculate them for any of my recipes. You can use stuff like or to calculate them if you would like though

  22. what does it mean 4 omega 3 eggs? It it 4 or 3 eggs?

  23. These are AMAZING! My wife made them last night and I can’t get enough. They are dangerous in that regard. Thanks for sharing!

  24. I made these yesterday and they were crazy awesome. So good that I couldn’t stop eating the batter.

  25. Did I read this right? 4 eggs? My batter was way too runny. What did I do wrong?

  26. Could you use almond flour instead of coconut flour?

  27. Did I read this right? 4 eggs? My batter looks way too thin and am now wondering how to fit it.

  28. Clean Eating -- It's a Lifestyle says:

    Seems like maybe I did something wrong! The dough was very dry and wouldn’t hold together well. I added a couple tablespoons of water and it helped some but I still ended up just making a pan cookie. When baked they are fairly dry and somewhat crumbly. If that’s how they should come out, then I am good, otherwise… any ideas? Thanks for all your great recipes!

    • No it is not supposed to be like that. I have never added water but they always come out perfect as long as I use raw organic honey. Mine are never dry, crumbly or bland. The raw honey keeps them moist

    • Mine were dry too, but then I realized my shredded coconut said “reduced fat” on the bag. I didn’t notice that when I bought it. Also I used agave cuz that’s what I had on hand. I’ll stick with raw honey next time.

      • Ah yes Andrea I have never heard of reduced fat coconut but those words should never be together. And the raw honey is what provides a lot of the moisture in these

  29. I’m very new to paleo and just found your blog, which is awesome btw!! I don’t live near a whole foods or trader joes or any kind of organic selling grocery store. Where can I find almond flour, coconut oil and coconut milk? And how do I know what brand to buy? Thanks!

  30. Do you have a good suggestion as a substitution for the choc chips? We’re trying to stay away from cane juice :)

  31. Quick question, on the 1/2 cup coconut oil, is this measured while solid or melted? Can’t wait to try these!

  32. These are AMAZING!! And my boys loved them too. next time I will try the banana trick and cut back on the chips.

  33. I had these recently at someone’s house and I ate four of them. So wonderful!

  34. I just made these and they are FANTASTIC! i used 1/3 cup agave syrup instead of honey b/c that’s what i had on hand

  35. Quiltingcellist says:

    It sure would be nice to have a “print” option for the recipes. I cook a lot where I don’t have computer access so need printed versions. I’m excited to try this one!

  36. I have been doing Paleo for 2 weeks now, and was seriously craving some sweets.
    This did a great job of getting me thru my cravings!! I cooked just a little to long, but they turned out great. Thanks for sharing!!

  37. These are on the "to bake this weekend" list!

  38. Yes you can mix it in whenever, I am fixing it now

  39. MrsWerner says:

    There's no note on when to add the coconut flour…I'm assuming with the liquid ingredients? Then the coconut and chocolate chips?
