  • Parchment Paper
  • Baking Sheet


Dry Ingredients

  • Cup Tapioca Flour
  • ½ Cup Cacao Powder
  • ¼ Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¼ Teaspoon Salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 Room Temperature Egg
  • ½ Cup Coconut Sugar Sub with Lakanto Golden Monkfruit for a lower sugar option.
  • ¼ Cup Coconut Oil, Melted
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ Cup Dark Chocolate Chips


  • Start by adding cacao powder, tapioca flour, baking soda, and salt into a small bowl. Mix together with a whisk until fully combined.
  • Next add melted coconut oil and coconut sugar into a bowl. Mix well and then add the egg and vanilla extract. Mix until it's a smooth, sticky consistency.
  • Pour the dry mixture into the wet mixture and fold together until a sticky dough forms. Then, fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and use a cookie scoop to add 6 cookies to the tray. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. (Do not flatten cookies, they will spread.)


Expert Tips

  • Make the cookies around the same size so they bake evenly.
  • Use a cookie scoop to place the dough on the tray. (It's so much easier!)
  • Bake the cookies on a parchment paper lined baking sheet to avoid sticking.
  • Measure the coconut oil first, and then melt it.
  • Run the eggs under warm water for a couple minutes to make sure they're room temperature.
