No-Bake Cinnamon Coconut Cookies

Cinnamon season has definitively arrived, so I thought I’d come up with a cinnamon version of my popular no-bake chocolate coconut cookies. Without the chocolate, obviously. 🙂 These no-bake cinnamon coconut cookies are dense, chewy, and bursting with cinnamon flavor.

I love that these cookies are naturally gluten-free, grain-free and egg-free. (Plus a bunch of other allergens like dairy and nuts.) They’re also really easy to make: just melt your oil, dump in all other ingredients, mix and then freeze. That’s my kind of recipe–delicious but not much work!

Recipe Notes

If you enjoy making recipes with shredded coconut, I highly recommend buying your shredded coconut online. In my experience, buying it in bulk is WAY less expensive than buying small packages at the grocery store. (If your local store has a great bulk section, that may be an affordable option, too.) I usually buy this shredded coconut. I also like using it in these coconut butter cookies and my chocolate coconut butter bites.

These cookies keep really well in the freezer, so I usually double this recipe when I make it.

  1. Add coconut oil to a saucepan and heat until the coconut oil is just melted.
  2. Add shredded coconut, honey, cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Mix until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  3. Line a cutting board (or other flat surface that can fit in your freezer) with parchment paper.
  4. Use a large spoon to scoop a spoonful of mixtue onto the parchment paper. Use your fingers to gently flatten and compress the dough so it forms a cookie. Repeat for all of the remaining dough.
  5. Transfer cutting board to your freezer and freeze until cookies are solid. Once frozen, store cookies in a lidded container in your fridge or freezer.
  6. If necessary, repeat process with any remaining dough.

Flourless Chocolate Coconut Butter Cookies: Gluten-free, Grain-free, Egg-free

Back when I was writing my coconut e-book, I had fun playing around with coconut butter as a gluten-free flour replacement. Recently I decided to revisit coconut butter to make a new recipe: chocolate coconut butter cookies! I’m not currently eating eggs so this recipe is egg-free as well as naturally gluten-free and grain-free. These cookies are soft, moist, mildly sweet, and have an almost cake-like texture. They’re a big hit in my house. I hope you enjoy them, too!

A couple notes on the recipe:

I use psyllium husks to make these cookies egg-free. I like psyllium husks because they’re a great binder and, unlike chia seeds or flax seeds, don’t require me to grind anything.…

Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last fall I had to spend several months on an elimination diet that had me avoiding a ton of the foods I usually eat. Desperate for something fun that I could actually eat, I stumbled upon a recipe for cashew butter cookies from the Detoxinista. That same week I discovered organic roasted cashews at Costco, so of course I had to make the recipe. I modified it a bit to fit our food restrictions here, but thankfully the cookies came out amazing! Since then I have made this recipe at least a dozen times. As I say about most conventional foods, my memory of chocolate chip cookies is pretty hazy, but these gluten-free flourless chocolate chip cookies taste so much like the chocolate chip cookies I used to make in my pre-real food days.…

Looking for another way to get healthy coconut products into your diet? You must give these cookies a try. Dense, dark and chewy, these no-bake chocolate coconut cookies are packed with coconut oil and shredded coconut so they make a healthy and delicious addition to any meal or snack.

These cookies are 100% real food, but in my experience they also get rave reviews from eaters who don’t adhere to a real food diet. I’ve taken them to several “normal” parties and always receive compliments on how delicious they are.

This is a fantastic cookie recipe to make if you’re short on time and/or don’t want to heat up your house by turning on the oven.…
