Keto Coconut Cookies

I have always loved coconut. Ever since I can remember, I have loved all things coconut; coconut cake, coconut milk, and even Almond Joy’s. Since making these delicious coconut cookies, I now have a new favorite to add to the list! These are keto, gluten free, grain free, and low carb. Most importantly though, these really are delicious!

I made these cookies as an Easter treat for Dylan and I. However, we ended up with more cookies than just the two of us could eat, and so we decided to give some to our friends and family, most of which are not on keto. To our surprise, everyone loved them!

Baking With Coconut

It seems like a minor detail, but I think that the key to these cookies is baking them with the coconut in the dough. Before I made the entire batch, I made two test cookies – I baked one cookie without any coconut and I baked the other with shredded coconut. To be honest, I don’t see how it could have made much of a difference, but the cookie with the coconut in the dough was a lot better than the one without. It probably was the way that the coconut changed the texture of the cookie. You will definitely want to make sure that you add some shredded coconut into the dough.

How to Make Keto Coconut Cookies:

steps to making coconut cookie

These were really easy to make! They are basically sugar cookies with some shredded coconut thrown into the dough.

  1. The first step in making these delicious cookies is to combine the dry ingredients. This will ensure that the baking soda is mixed evenly throughout the dough, leading to perfectly soft and thick cookies. Set aside
  2. In a separate bowl, add in the wet ingredients and mix.
  3. Combine the dry and wet mixture together until it thickens.
  4. Finally, the last step is to fold the shredded coconut into the dough.

These cookies turn a beautiful golden brown after baking for 12-15 minutes!

This recipe make two dozen cookies! Store them in the refridgerator. Isn’t it awesome when even dessert can taste better the next day? 🙂

As much as I love coconut, I think the frosting might actually be my favorite part about these cookies. This cream cheese frosting is SO GOOD! It’s sweet, creamy, and thick. It is easily better than any frosting I have ever bought in a container. Best of all, this frosting is super easy to make. All you’ll have to do is throw together a few common ingredients and blend them together. It really is as simple as that. This frosting would also taste great on a cake!

These cookies will satisfy your sweet tooth and then some. The cookie itself is soft and chewy, the frosting is thick and creamy, and the shredded coconut on top adds a little bit of texture that is as unique as it is tasty.

I made these and they were incredible. I used powdered monkfruit sweetener for the frosting and halved the recipe for it and wished I had made the full one. Full disclosure alert: I ate a full tablespoon of the frosting by itself and wanted more! What a great recipe - my husband really likes them too and he only eats traditional types of cookies that use AP flour!
