Do you need any special ingredients to make these Coconut and Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies?

Coconut flour

Coconut flour has become very popular so most large supermarkets and health stores will stock it. Alternatively, you can buy it here on Amazon.

Our sweetener of choice is Sukrin 1 which is a natural, granulated sweetener (just like sugar) that has none of that horrible, artificial taste.

That being said, you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality, granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket including Canderel Sugarly and Natvia.

If you’re using powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases, you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners can weigh less.

You can grab Sukrin 1 sweetener over on Amazon.

You can pick up Natvia as an alternative as well.
