Serves 4


  • ¼ cup Coco Joy Coconut Oil
  • 2 Eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup Desiccated Coconut Flakes
  • 2 tbsp. Brown Rice Flour
  • 1 ½ cup Peanut Butter
  • 1 tbsp. Coco Joy Coconut Milk

  • ¾ cup Sugar


Preheat oven to 320 degrees Fahrenheit, and line a baking sheet with baking paper.

Combine Coco Joy Coconut Oil and coconut in a small frying pan over medium heat.

Cook, stirring often, until coconut is light golden brown. Set aside to cool for at least 10 minutes. In a large bowl, combine peanut butter, white sugar, coconut sugar, eggs, Coco Joy Coconut Milk, brown rice flour, and salt; stir until completely combined. Add coconut mixture, mix well.

Drop by tablespoon onto prepared baking sheet. Press a chunk of chocolate onto each cookie. Bake until cookies are golden on the bottom, 10-14 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
