    That looks so yummy but I have a few questions:
    1) Can I use almond flour instead of coconut flour ?? If yes, are there any change in quantities??
    2) Can I use raw honey in place of steviva blend?? And do I add it to the wet ingredients instead of the dry??

    Thanks a whooole lot !! And you’re such a great photographer :)

    1. Halle Cottis says:

      Hey Mariam,
      I am sure you could use almond flour but I am not sure of the amount. Just add enough almond flour to give it a cookie dough consistency. Yes you can use raw honey in place of steviva blend, I would use a little more though. Taste the batter, if it taste sweet enough then just go with that amount. Honey you would add to the wet ingredients. Let me know how they turn out :)

  2. Tina Walker McCullom says:

    Hey Halle…so if I were to use organic cane sugar would it still be 2 tbsp??

  3. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    no it would be 4 tbsp :)

  4. Tina Walker McCullom says:

    Thanks tons…chocolate & coconut together yummerzzzz

  5. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Do you want me to tell you how the nutritional info would change Tina?

  6. Tina Walker McCullom says:

    No it’s cool, I can’t wait to try them though…been cravin’ choc chip cookies for a while so this will be perfect!!

  7. Rhonda Harader Cain says:

    I will be making these when I get back!

  8. Jane Symington says:

    Halle, can I make the same recipe without coconut?

  9. Jane Symington says:

    Tried the peach cobler yesterday do dessert and it was a hit!!

  10. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    I think you could, just add about a tsp more of coconut flour.

  11. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Good to hear on the peach cobbler! My family loved it too :)

  12. Debbie Banks says:

    How about carob?

  13. Debbie Banks says:

    BTW Halle, you always impress me!!!

  14. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Thanks Debbie :) Carob is a great option. You could add just about anything…cranberries, raisons, pecans, the list is endless Vicki :)

  15. Catherine Garbus says:

    we made these and added a tbsp of cocoa and a bit more sugar.. the coconut oil makes them melt in your mouth one of the best cookies ever!! great job halle

  16. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Thanks Catherine! I can’t wait to try them with some cocoa powder too. Did you use about 4 tbsp of cane sugar?

  17. Catherine Garbus says:

    i only used 3 of white cane

  18. Catherine Garbus says:

    ok baking incompetence part two .. the dough turned out just like you said but i used a brownie size pan to bake them in instead of a cookie sheet and they ran together and made one big cookie :)

  19. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    You are to funny Catherine!

  20. Catherine Garbus says:

    yeah i crack me up NOT . my bad because i only had tiny eggs so i used 3 instead of 2 so they turned out like cake .. i will try again this is not going to beat me!!!

  21. Catherine Garbus says:

    ok so . the cookie that turned into a whole pan i cut up in bars . very similar to blonde brownies so there i now have 2 variations on the cookie.. also i was thinking a quarter cup of chopped macadamias in the cocoa version baked round three today then still ran out flat not like yours i even put an extra tbsp of coconut flour .. any ideas?

  22. Catherine Garbus says:

    P.S. I do now have this recipe memorized

  23. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    somewhere your measurements are off. If they are running flat, then they don’t have enough coconut flour. Are your eggs Huge? Try adding a little more coconut flour.

  24. Catherine Garbus says:

    i did use 3 tbsp coconut flour yes i just realized when i was talking to my egg lady that my eggs are huge way larger than what is graded as “large” in the the ones i made at my friends house turned out like yours but we used 4 tbsp of flour now everyone said my “bars” were great lol

  25. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    There you go! You are getting a feel of what the dough should feel and look like, so if you are using a huge egg, try using 1 and see if that works or go ahead and use 2 and add some more flour 😉

  26. Catherine Garbus says:

    ok but you know . the dough without the choc chips and with the extra egg would make a great upside down cake for peaches .. hey i might get the hang of this baking stuff

  27. Debbie Banks says:

    Ok, I made these last night and they also turned into one big cookie. But they cut up into perfect cookie bars and were DELICIOUS!

  28. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    coconut flour is a very tricky flour to use. If you don’t measure exact, you can throw the whole recipe off! I little to much coconut oil will change this recipe as well as to little of coconut flour. Really pay close attention to your measurements. Also, put you cookies in the oven for 1 minute. If they start to spread real thin, then scoop the batter back into your bowl and add a little more coconut flour. Also if your eggs are huge this might also alter the recipe too.

  29. Catherine Garbus says:

    or just be halle then they will work :)

  30. Catherine Garbus says:

    seriously i intend to keep working with it til i get the hang

  31. Debbie Banks says:

    Hey, the bar looked great and tasted delicious so no problem. I did measure pretty accurately, but next time I might add a little more coconut flour if the dough looks the same as it did last night. They were pretty darn good though. Great recipe!

  32. Bozena says:

    Hi there Halle!!

    Can I substitute coconut sugar instead of honey or stevia and if so what is the amount I would use?

    Thank you!

  33. Maddie says:
