This recipe is a slightly modified version from my friend Megan Kelly.  She has an incredible blog and is a Licensed Esthetician specializing in holistic nutrition, woman’s hormones, and spiritual health.


Coconut Protein Cookies Ingredients:

1.5 cups of shredded coconut flakes

½ cup of sunflower seeds

½ cup of high quality protein powder

10-15 drops of liquid stevia

1 tsp of vanilla

1 tsp of cinnamon

2 tbsps of coconut oil

1/8 cup of water

Optional Ingredients:

For sweetener use 1/4 cup of honey

Coconut Protein Cookies Instructions:

  1. Pre heat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Roughly chop sunflower seeds or other nuts you may wish to use in the blender until broken up in chunks.
  3. Place all ingredients into a bowl and stir together, if you notice that it is too crumbly, than try adding in another tablespoon of coconut oil and possibly more water.
  4. Scoop cookies onto cookie tray.
  5. Gently press the cookies down to flatten.
  6. Makes about 18 cookies.
  7. Bake for about 15 minutes.

Additional Notes:

Can use 2 cups coconut shreds if you do not have/want sunflower seeds.

Can use any other kind of nut or seed

You can use any sort of flavored or unflavored protein powder to change up the flavor.

You can put the coconut whipped cream recipe in between to make an incredible coconut cookie sandwich!


Dr Jockers Comments:

This is a fun and tasty recipe that is full of fiber, healthy fats and clean protein.  It is low carb, ketogenic and helps us to stabilize our blood sugar and burn fat.

If you are following an autoimmune nutrition plan than you may want to avoid the sunflower seeds and instead use extra coconut flakes.  Coconut flakes are a great source of medium chain fats that help us to burn fat and provide immediate fuel for our body and brain.  They also provide good fiber for our microbiome.

Stevia is my preferred sweetener because it is one hundred times sweeter than sugar and has no effect on our blood sugar.

You can use a wide variety of protein powders, such as grass-fed whey protein or bone broth protein that are full of branched chain amino acids to help support the development of lean body mass.

If you are on an autoimmune nutrition plan and are avoiding dairy protein, than I would highly recommend our Gut Healing Protein powder here

    I’m on weight watchers doesn’t sound like 30 points which I am allowed?

      I would definitely not recommend weight watchers.

    These are amazing, made with honey and no stevia and still a little too sweet even. But how do I store them? Thank you!

      You can store these in the refrigerator for short term usage (within 3 days or so) and in the freezer for long-term usage.

    What is calorie count??

    The recipe call for replacing the sunflower seed with 2 cups of coconut shreads if I don’t want or have seeds. Is this correct? It only calls for 1/2 cup of seeds. The two cup replacement seems to be too much.

    • Dr. Jockers April 11, 2017 at 3:04 pm #


      Yes the original recipe calls for 1.5 cups of coconut shreds so you would simply replace the half cup of seeds with a half cup of coconut shreds for a total of 2 cups of coconut shreds.
