Oat Chocolate Coconut Cookies

Submitted by: lalacooks on December 20, 2010

* Cocoa Nibs are something new for us. They are broken pieces of raw, cocoa beans. They are referred to as a “superfood” because they are high in antioxidants and some minerals. We have not seen these at the grocery store. We found them at a health food store. They are also available online.

      Cook Time: 12-16 min  


6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sorghum flour
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1/3 cup cacao nibs (optional, but they really add to the general incredibleness) *
1 1/2 cup rolled oats (the old fashioned kind)


In a bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and beat until mixed.

In another bowl, add sorghum, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir to mix. Set aside.

Put chocolate chips and cacoa nibs in food processor and process until both things are smaller. They do not need to be processed into powder.

Mix dry ingredients in bowl with butter mixture. Add vanilla and mix. Stir in chocolate chip/cacoa nibs, and coconut. Stir in oats.

Drop by spoonfuls onto baking sheet with parchment.

Bake for 12-16 minutes. Ours took 14 minutes, but ovens vary.
