Soft-baked cake bites made with chocolate chips. Serve with some plain yogurt for a tasty gluten free treat.

This is my first attempt at baking with coconut flour. I bought some about a month ago and wasn’t sure what I was going to make. That bag sat in the cabinet taunting me for weeks. I felt a bit intimidated because I do not like making mistakes. It’s a bit of a personality quirk. Let’s keep this between us. 

When I had these in the oven my sister the bread baker called and told me to expect these cookies to be soft. She wasn’t kidding. Hence that’s why I call them cake bites. Definitely more cakey than cookie like.

These cookies have a similar texture to a corn muffin. It doesn’t taste like corn but the texture is grainy like a corn muffin. When I was younger and would have leftover cake I would douse it in a bowl of milk. This was and is my favorite way to eat a piece of leftover cake.

The texture of these is similar to cake or a soft cookie. If you like soft cookies these are right up your alley. I really think they go great with yogurt or milk. I broke some up in yogurt and called it a snack. It was exactly what they needed.

These cookies are dense but not heavy. Does that make sense? I’m hoping the title gives you plenty of info as to what you’re getting into by using coconut flour. It’s a whole different kind of cookie.
