How many cookies do you think could solve the world’s problems? Maybe, like two. And one of them is these double chocolate chip coconut cookies.

Okaaaaaaay, these cookies probably won’t solve the world’s problems, but they’ll definitely help you forget about them.

But, how long will this world-problem-forgetting euphoria last?

Well, about as long as it takes to eat this cookie. And, well, daydream about the day when you can eat them again.

Yup, these are those kind of cookies. When you’re super stressed out, feeling hopeless or just annoyed by all the things, these double chocolate chip coconut cookies will make it all better.

At least for as long as you eat them, of course. 😉

These cookies are wonderful in so many ways. Shall we count? They’re:

  • rich and indulgent, just bursting with chocolate goodness
  • made of simple ingredients:
    • such as oat flour, cocoa and ground flax
  • full of coconut awesomeness:
    • coconut flakes, coconut oil and coconut sugar (yum!)
  • crispy on the outside and chewy, chocolate-melty on the inside
  • world-problem erasing (temporarily, of course)
  • easy to make!

I could keep counting the ways, but then you’d have to get Cookie and me a room. Um…

So here’s how my love double chocolate chip coconut cookies got started: I was having a wretched day and Erik was feeling a bit catty. Men… What can I say?

Side note, I was also totally drooling over these double chocolate chip cookies from Veggie Balance. Don’t they look fab? 😉 And while I’m at it, I’ve got to mention Meaningful Eats’ Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies. They’re grain-free and gluten-free. Just sub eggs with flax eggs and use dairy-free butter to make them vegan.

Anyway, we both immediately called for a summit on How to Fix Our Generally Sour Dispositions. And the answer was immediate and obvious:

Honestly, when is the solution on How to Fix Our General Sour Dispositions not cookies? Duh, right?

But as per usual, we didn’t want to fall back on our old bad habits of just ordering like 10 pizzas and/or at least enough Chinese food to feed a small village–okaaaaay, a large village. So making super-junky cookies (even though they don’t even look like 10 pizzas or 15 Chinese dishes) was not gonna be the answer.

So I thumbed through my cookbooks, made some pretty big stinkers, and decided: to heck with it! Today is not the day to be restrained by any ol’ stinkin’ cookbook. Yes, I go all cowboy when I get sassy. Or should I say brassy?

Enter: the cookie that I threw wildly together based on much brassy supposition and even wilder guesswork.

But, it worked.

The cookies were amazing.

And we both felt so much better.

Sometimes, a bad day is the best thing that can happen to you. You are literally so annoyed/peeved/whatever that you don’t have your sensible rationalizations holding you back. Amiriiiiight?


Go on, make these double chocolate chip coconut cookies and forget your problems/the world’s problems. And most importantly…

Always remember to get brassy.

double chocolate chip coconut cookies (vegan, gluten-free)


Rich, chewy & indulgent Double Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies – a simple, vegan recipe for twice the chocolate plus coconut oil, coconut sugar and coconut shreds!



Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
  • 1 ¼ cups gluten-free oat flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients

  • ¼ cup vegan chocolate chips (for melting, more later)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 2 flax eggs (whisk together 2 tablespoons ground flax + 6 tablespoons warm water, let set for 15 mins)
  • ¾ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • ¾ cup vegan chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or greased foil.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: coconut, flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  3. Melt the chocolate: In a small saucepan over low heat, add ¼ cup chocolate chips and coconut oil. Stir chocolate chips until just slightly softened and coconut oil is melted. Quickly remove from heat and stir until completely melted and smooth. Set aside.

    Alternative chocolate-melting method (microwave): If you’d like to use a microwave, add ¼ cup chocolate chips and coconut oil into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 20 second increments, stirring in between, until the coconut oil and chocolate chips are melted. Watch it closely to ensure that it doesn’t burn. Stir until smooth and set aside.

  4. Make the cookie dough: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together melted chocolate mixture, flax eggs, sugar and extract. In thirds, whisk in dry ingredients. When the dough is harder to mix, use a rubber spatula to fold until well-incorporated. Fold in ¾ cup chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop 2 tablespoons of cookie dough into your hand and roll into a ball. Make sure the ball is smooth and round, like a sphere–this will ensure that the cookies bake up nice and round.
  6. Place these balls evenly spaced apart on the prepared cookie sheet. Flatten slightly.
  7. Bake the cookies: Bake for 8-10 minutes. The cookies are done when they’re slightly soft in the center, but have a firm bottom.
  8. Using a flat spatula, carefully lift cookies off the baking sheet and place on a cooling rack. Allow to cool. Enjoy!


– Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
– You can easily double the recipe to make more cookies.

  1. Two types of chocolate – because ONE CHOCOLATE IS NOT ENOUGH CHOCOLATE! I hardly ever bake vegan treats, buttttt these cookies are totally looking at me, making me want to change my mind. I’m a recent chocolate with coconut convert so these look extra scrumptious. Love it!!!

    1. One chocolate is NEVER enough chocolate!! Haha. Give these choco-coconut goodies a shot, you really wouldn’t think they’re vegan at all! 🙂 Thanks Jessica! 🙂

  2. If anyone’s looking for me, you’ll find me sitting in my closet with the door closed, eating these cookies as quiet as a mouse as I do not intend on sharing. Seriously these look and sound freaking fantastic. I LOVE chocolate and coconut together… ever try Barney Butter Cocoa Coconut Almond Butter? Because it’s ridiculous. Baking does make everything better, especially when there’s chocolate involved. When I’m shooting lasers from my eyes, I will undoubtedly turn to chocolate and avocados (but not together, never together, not under ANY circumstances will I eat them together – ya know, if you’re wondering how I really feel). Pinning! 😉

    1. LOLOLOLOL. Stephanie, you ALWAYS crack me up! What a visual. You know, this Cookie Hiding Closet should totally be a thing. In this closet, sharing is just not encouraged. Haha. I’ve never tried that flavor of Barney Butter! I’ve never even seen it in these parts. Baking really is the best, at laser-neutralizing and all. No chocolate and avocado together? Not even chocolate avocado truffles?? Come on!! I’m gonna have to make those for you some time and you’ll see the light. LOL. Thanks as always for your refreshing and hilarious comments, Steph. <3

        1. I would happily show you the light… and that light would would be tasty, guuuurl. Okay, you know what? I’ve been working on a raw chocolate pudding with avocado in it. I must finish it and send to you immediately.? No more trauma for my girl, Steph. O-kay? ?

            1. Let’s do it! 😉 Just so you know, I’m rubbing my hands together in delight. Nothing better than a food challenge! 🙂

  3. So if they’re are vegan that means they are pretty much plant based and I can eat the whole stack for zero calories? Ok, maybe not. But eating the stack just might solves my problems right now. I love this ingredient, a much healthier spin than what I’m used too!

    1. Haha, good one! I can’t say that I don’t help myself to more than a few once in awhile… LOL. Honestly though, there isn’t much to feel guilty about with these cookies. Enjoy and thanks, Laura! 🙂

    1. Woot woot! I’m so happy that you’re happy! Seeeee, cookies can be profound and earth-changing. Haha. Weekend Baking Happiness: Is there really anything better? Thanks for the wonderful comment, Kate. <3

  4. I love when a recipes comes together so perfectly when your winging it. These cookies look & sound delicious. Love how you used healthy ingredients to make them. Baking always puts me in a better mood…plus enjoying the food after I make it puts me in an even better mood. 😉

    1. Right? It’s like a gift for your frustrations. Haha. Baking just makes everything better, doesn’t it? 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Katie!

  5. I love coconut and chocolate, but I’ve never had it in a cookie before. Such a delicious idea! I’m going to have to make these this weekend, otherwise I’ll probably go crazy dreaming about them. Thanks for the recipe and the gorge pics!

    1. Omigosh, you HAVE to try it! It’s one of the most delicious combinations out there! 🙂 If you end up making these, let me know how it goes. Thank you, Megan! 🙂

  6. Lol, Your site is my favorite place to come when I am feeling brassy… or sassy.. or like a general Biznatch. You always put a smile on my face and make me laugh with your writing, Demeter. Plus your gorgeous photography makes my soul and hangry belly happy. 😉 LOVE these cookies, but I have one small problem, I am deathly allergic to cocoa. So I can’t actually eat these cookies… soooo I think I might be forced to have a general sour disposition for life. Boo to that. Stupid allergies can’t keep me down, I guess I am going to print out pictures of these fabulous cookies and hang them all over my office and stare in envy. That might even turn me into a nice person who makes these cookies just for her husband (lord knows he could use some cookies). Pinned! Gotta share the cookie love! Cheers, doll! <3

    1. Niiiiice! But I doubt you’re ever a biznatch. Hahaha. Thank you so much for your kind words, Cheyanne. Really, the whole goal of my blog is to make people happy… so I’m sassily patting myself on the back right now. But seriously though, your blog always makes me giggle and drool. What more do you really need out of life? As for your cocoa allergy: WHAT!?!? How and when did you find out about that? I am quietly crying into a napkin for you. As such, I will have to overcompensate by eating extra double chocolate chip coco cookies for you. Make them for your hubby and let me know how they turn out. Big smoochies to ya Cheyanne! xoxoxo.

        1. But you remember chocolate cookies and red velvet? That’s rough! Good news is that you make all kinds of amazing tacos and buddha bowls, so who needs cocoa?! Not you! Make the cookies for that sweet hubby of yours. 😉 P.S. It’s super cool learning more about you. 🙂

        1. Hi Christine, do you mean the flax eggs? Flax eggs are actually a vegan substitute for eggs. They’re made of ground flaxseed and water to create an egg-like gel. Nice and vegan! 🙂
