  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Put the coconut flakes in a small bowl.

  2. In a small bowl or cup, combine the ground flax seed and the water. Let sit for 5 minutes until it forms a gel.

  3. Mix the sugars and melted vegan buttery spread until combined, then add the flax egg and water.

  4. Add the cocoa powder, gluten free flour, salt, and baking soda to the wet ingredients, and stir well.

  5. Stir in the chocolate chips.

  6. Take a small spoonful of dough and roll it into a ball. Roll it in the coconut to coat - you want a lot of coconut to stick to each ball.
  7. Put the coconut covered balls on the parchment lined cookie sheets. Leave about 1.5 inches of space between cookies.

  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool completely on the cookie sheets before moving.

Recipe Notes

Store leftover cookies in an airtight container. They should stay fresh for about 5-6 days.

You can freeze the cookie dough. After you roll the dough into balls, freeze on the cookie sheets. Once frozen, place the balls in a ziploc freezer bag. They should stay fresh for about 3 months in the freezer.

If you can't have coconut, roll the cookies in sugar instead.
