Coconut Flour Cut Out Cookies

Coconut Flour Cut Out Cookies

With the holiday season in full swing, my girls keep asking me for cut out cookies.  So this past weekend I set out to make some delicious, yet healthy, cut out cookies.

These cookies turned out so great! The dough will take you about 5 minutes to whip up and it is super easy to roll out!

For sprinkles or colored sugar, you can either make your own (see red sprinkles in this post) or check your local health food store for some organic sprinkles that are colored from vegetables and not dyes.

You could also frost these cookies if desired.  I made a frosting out of greek yogurt, cream cheese, raw honey and a little vanilla.  Add some food coloring (made out of vegetable, not dye) and you will have a wonderful icing to decorate your cookies with.

I hope you all enjoy these cookies, we sure did!

    I have been looking for a healthy Christmas cookie. My daughter so loves to decorate and eat the cut-out cookies.

    I tried this recipe…used a coconut blend flour mix. I was too moist to roll into a ball. Tried it as dropped cookies, and when in the oven, dough spread all over the pan. What did I do wrong???

  3. montanabby says:

    OMG…..I mean THE BATTER was too moist….LOL~~~

      @montanabby OMG, I am laughing so hard LOL, thanks for the laugh :) A coconut flour “blend” would not work for this, you would most likely need to add more flour. Out of curiosity what is the coconut flour blended with? Coconut flour is very absorbent and there are a lot of liquid ingredients in this recipe, so you would either have to reduce some of the liquids or increase the amount of the blended flour you used.

    2. montanabby says:

      The blend has white rice flour, tapioca flour, potato starch, organic coconut flour and sweet rice flour. It says on the package it “offers a unique ‘tangy’ sweet taste”…its BITTER…will be tossin’ it out, for sure!!

      LOL I had to read that twice 😀

  4. kayleeh says:

    The ingredients say baking soda but the directions say baking powder which one is correct?

    1. hallecottis says:

      @kayleeh Baking powder.  I will make the change, sorry about that.

  5. Halle Cottis says:

    I updated this recipe this year (2013) and they have a terrific texture and the dough is super easy to work with! I hope you all enjoy! :)

  6. These look delicious and so easy! Adding these to the next batch to try with the kids. Thanks!

  7. Angelnina says:

    I’m hoping I can sub cornstarch for tapioca starch?

    I bake these cookies last week before Christmas and they came out PERFECT! I loved them….the texture was great and the taste was great! I used maple sugar as my sweetner. I can’t wait to make them again. My kids and husband – four tough critics loved them.

    Thank you for sharing this recipe. It is hard to find a good coconut flour recipe that doesn’t require a lot of eggs.

    1. Halle Cottis says:

      Oh I am so happy that you and your family liked them! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment :)

  9. I just made these and the batter was way too wet to roll out, so I had to more than double the coconut flour! Eventually I got it to the consistency that worked to roll out and they turned out great. Not sure what I did wrong!!

    1. Halle Cottis says:

      Coconut flour is very tricky to work with. You did the right thing by adding more. My coconut flour is very dense and little is often needed.

    Hi….They look great!!!!! Can I use honey….how much?

  11. Maria H. says:

    Just made these cookies and they are so good! They were fast and easy to make. My 4 year old loved them!

    I didn’t have tapioca starch so I used arrowroot starch instead and they still came out perfect.

    Thank you so much for the recipe :)

    Could you please post your frosting recipe? It sounds great! Can’t wait to try cookie recipe. How do I make them crispy please? More butter? Thank you☺

    1. Halle Cottis says:

      Great idea Kate! I have a great recipe in mind…a butter cream!
