Sometimes I find a recipe that will forever change the way we look at food. Well, this Grain-Free Walnut Coconut Chocolate Cookie is one of those recipes. The first time I made them, I could not stop eating them. It was all about the texture, crunch from walnuts, softness from coconut, and richness from the chocolate that made these grain-free cookies outstanding!

The best part? You can eat them guilt-free because the ingredient list is healthy, naturally gluten-free, and the cookies are pretty simple to make!

grain-free, great tasting cookies…

This healthier cookie recipe has only seven ingredients. Walnuts, buckwheat flour, pure maple syrup, unsweetened shredded coconut, chocolate chips, pure vanilla extract and a pinch of sea salt. A very simple list of ingredients.

These grain-free cookies are a bit chewy with a slight crunch! The addition of pure maple syrup gives the cookie a subtle sweetness that balances out the chocolate and coconut. And, as if all that goodness weren’t enough, this recipe doesn’t contain added grains or fat (unless you count the healthy fat from the nuts and seeds)!

The perfect blend of ingredients with no butter, oil, or grains proves that cookies don’t have to be unhealthy. This grain-free cookie recipe doesn’t rely on any special ingredients, just the natural goodness of nuts, seeds, and shredded coconut. And the recipe is super easy to make.
