Coconut Flour Cookies - small batch - gluten, dairy, egg free

Coconut Flour Cookies
I was looking for a new small batch, gluten free cookie recipe and stumbled upon the 3 ingredient coconut flour cookie recipe.  The reviews were very mixed.  Some people loved them, while others hated them.  I decided to try it for myself and asked our guests, Kirsten and John, to be my taste testers.  Since they do not have to eat gluten free, I wanted their opinions as to whether these cookies would appeal to everyone.  By the way, after we taste tested, there weren't any left for Kim.

We all enjoyed the coconut flavor.  If you don't like coconut, do not try this recipe.  The texture was very nice.  If you remove them from the pan too soon, they crumble.  But, if you let them cool just long enough, they are absolutely perfect.  We all agreed that chocolate (white or dark) would be a great accompaniment.  But, that would defeat the 3 ingredient concept.

The three ingredients are:
3 Tablespoons of coconut flour
2 Tablespoons of coconut oil
1 Tablespoon of honey

Combine the ingredients thoroughly.
Scoop by teaspoonfuls onto parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 6 - 7 minutes (just golden around the edges)
Let cool for several minutes before eating.
This recipe made 10 small cookies.

So, go try it and let me know if you like it.  Thanks for visiting the Americus Garden Inn blog.  Come back and see what we're baking next.
