Coconut Shortbread Cookies




Yield 6 cookies



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix until it has the consistency of a thick paste.
  3. Shape the dough into balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Press down gently on the tops of the cookies with a fork or knife.
  4. Bake the cookies for 8 to 10 minutes, or until they are lightly browned on the bottom. Remove from the oven and let cool completely on the baking sheet; otherwise, they will crumble.
  5. Serve or store in the refrigerator for up to a week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Dr Jockers Comments:

This is a super tasty, fat burning, ketogenic recipe that uses great ingredients and is easy to make.  If you have been looking for a healthy short bread cookie recipe than you have found your match!  Try these today and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Using coconut flour is a fantastic strategy because it is low-carb, full of healthy fiber and good fats that have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body.  Grass-fed butter is full of essential fatty acids and fat soluble nutrients such as vitamin A, D, E, K2, phosphatydlserine and butyric acid.

I changed the original recipe, which used honey or maple syrup and instead substituted stevia which is an all-natural sweetener that is 100 times as sweet as sugar.  Stevia has no impact on our blood sugar, which is why I prefer it over other sweeteners.

This is an amazing recipe that your family will love and enjoy!

  1. I would prefer to use jaggery or some other sweetener because I dont like stevias after taste. How much other sweetener would be called for?

  2. Who makes 5-6 cookies? Do you have a recipe for 24? What are the guidelines for substituting maple syrup or honey for stevia if one is increasing the recipe?

    1. Hey Teri, you could simply multiply the recipe by 4 for 24 cookies. For the maple syrup or honey, you could try adding a 1/4 to a half cup, tasting the batter, and adjusting from there. Let me know how they turn out!

  3. I made these last night and I doubled the recipe and the batter was too dry. I added about 1/8 cup of almond milk to get the batter to hold together. The cookies came out too dry and didn’t have much flavor except for the Stevia. Disappointed 😞

    1. Sorry to hear this Denyse, I have not had this problem. You could try adding more butter, coconut oil, your favorite nut butter (if you tolerate nuts well), and increasing the amount of vanilla you put in them. I have heard good things about this vanilla powder:

  4. I followed this recipe to a T and also found it to be way too crumbly. I added a little extra butter +2 eggs—better, but crumbled apart upon pressing lightly with a fork on top. This recipe needs to be reworked.

  5. Also followed recipe to a T and was very crumbly. Could not use a fork to press down…crumbled. Tastes great though. I used Sweet Leaf vanilla cream stevia…no aftertaste. Thinking my coconut flour was too fine?

  6. Well I tried your recipe, i added more butter an egg and ya! Cookies . Shortbread? NO! But deffinetly better than a cheat
    Thanks Shae Rojas

  7. I was very excited to try these but they were terrible! I followed your version and they were so dry I could not flatten with a fork. I added a bit of water and got them on the baking sheet. However, they came out very dry and without much flavor. And I added extra vanilla for moisture. I think they could be reworked with a bit of nut butter and/or almond flour added for moisture? And maybe swerve instead of stevia. But then they won’t be shortbread. Oh well, the search goes on!

  8. Ok, I tried this.. way too crumbly, even tried bacon grease.. lol
    This works for an awesome crumb topping and satisfied the craving for carbs on top of a whipped cream over berries only dessert. Wow.

  9. Short bread are my favorite cookies. I was very excited this popped up on my feed.

    Very easy to make. I added coconut and tried it with coconut flavoring and some with maple flavoring. I had to leave in balls as the dough would crumble so I didn’t bother with a fork.

    I’m happy with this recipe. I will try different variations.

    Thank you!

  10. Like many others have noted, this recipe comes out way too dry for me and can’t be shaped at all. Even after I tried adding other ingredients for moisture, they came out a crumbly mess. With about a 50% “fail” rate, could you please double-check your recipe? Thank you!
