Healthy chocolate coconut cookies are delicious flavor packed in every bite.


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (I find this at Trader Joe’s in baking aisle)
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup hot water, almost to a boil
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray two cookie sheets with cooking spray or line with foil or parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together flours, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl. Next, combine sugar, oil, and vanilla using a hand-held or standing mixer. Add 1/2 of water and 1/2 of flour mixture and mix briefly until combined. Add the last of the water and flour mixture and mix again just until combined.
  3. Finally, add the shredded coconut and mix one last time until fully combined (don’t over mix).
  4. Scoop about a tablespoon of batter per cookie onto to the cookie sheets, spreading them about 1-2 inches apart. Wet the spoon and lightly press each cookie down with the back of the spoon.
  5. Bake for about 8-10 minutes, just until set. Do not over bake or they will become dry.
  6. Let cool for 2 minutes on sheet before transferring to a plate or your mouth. 🙂
