Double Chocolate Gluten Free Cookies

Author: Karen Porter, RHN

For almost 30 years Karen battled severe IBS, & anxiety.

Forced to re-evaluate and take her health into her own hands, she started looking into alternative methods to help her heal where the traditional medical approach had failed. 

Karen’s health, and consequently her life, entirely shifted and she felt compelled to help as many women as possible to feel their absolute best!  


It was a weekend that I'd be seeing both of my (adult!) children.  I went into a bit of a healthy baking frenzy!  I know they snack (don't we all?!), but my preference would be for it to be healthier and not contain refined sugar, gluten or dairy.  This recipe originated from Joyous Health and it's delicious!  It's made with awesome raw ingredients like raw cacao powder and coconut flour (which is really nice if you haven't used it before).  Some people try to stay away from grains, so if that's you, this recipe is the one!  Enjoy these cookies and you'll be getting a boost of magnesium, potassium, fiber, iron, antioxidants, healthy fat, and so much more!  Of course be mindful when you're eating them --> one cookie goes a long way!

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
