It’s important to note that not all coconut flours are the same. Different brands can vary in density and they can have slightly different absorption abilities. They can even have different calorie values.

We use a granulated sweetener with the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – this makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like these Double Choc Chip Cookies.

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

Coconut flour is great to use as a substitute for normal flour. Since coconut flour is rich in fibre, it absorbs more liquid than most other flours. This means you can reduce the amount of coconut flour (and also the calorie value) when you swap with regular wheat flour. You can buy some here on Amazon.

There are lots of high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

Step 2

Cream together the reduced fat spread and sweetener. You can use an electric mixer for this.

Step 3

Slowly add one egg at a time to the mixture.

Step 4

Add vanilla, coconut flour cocoa powder and mix well. The mix will thicken a lot when everything is mixed in well.

Step 5

Add baking soda and salt and mix until all ingredients are incorporated.

Step 6

Stir in chocolate chips.

Step 7

Leave the mixture for a minute so the flour absorbs the moisture and becomes a dropping consistency.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop the cookies by spoonfuls onto the parchment with at least 2 inches apart. There will be enough for 18 cookies.

Step 9

Bake for 12 minutes.

Step 10

Let the cookies cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before moving them to a wire rack to cool.

What sweetener is used in recipe

Reply

    Emma TFriday 13th September 2019

    Hi Karen,

    We prefer to use a granulated sweetener which has a like-for-like weight with sugar – sukrin, canderel sugarly or natvia are good options!

    Hope that helps!
