In December many food blogs feature an ongoing series of sugary treats, and I’ve been resisting the Christmas cookie baking fever for a few weeks now. But every year at Christmas I try a few new recipes to add to my collection of Desserts and Baking Recipes for those of you who have a sweet tooth but are trying to limit sugar in your diet.

These Sugar-Free Flourless Chocolate Coconut Drops were easy to throw together, and if you’re a chocolate fan I think you’ll enjoy them for a holiday treat. 

What ingredients do you need? 

What sugar-free ingredients did I use?

These cookies are made with Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips (affiliate link) and I switched out the powdered sugar for Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link) and used unsweetened coconut to create a chocolate cookie without much sugar.

Are the cookies completely sugar-free?

I’m calling these cookies sugar-free because they use Monkfruit Sweetener and sugar-free chocolate chips. But they do have a small amount of unsweetener coconut which does have some natural sugar. Check the nutritional information to see if this cookie is too much of a splurge for you.

How to make Sugar-Free Flourless Chocolate Coconut Drops:

(Scroll down for complete printable recipe with nutritional information.)

  1. Take eggs out of the fridge and let them come to room temp while you preheat the oven to 325F/170C.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link) or sweetener of your choice, cocoa powder, salt, sugar-free chocolate chips, toasted chopped almonds, and coconut.
  3. When the eggs have warmed to room temperature, separate the egg whites and mix with the other ingredients.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment and use a cookie scoop to make small balls of dough.
  5. Bake 16-18 minutes, until the tops of the cookies look dry.
  6. The original cookies made with sifted confectioners sugar melted down into flatter cookies, but we loved these little balls of chocolatey goodness!
  7. Try to let them cool before you sample one!

Sugar-Free Flourless Chocolate Coconut Drops are delicious for a healthier holiday cookie!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Monkfruit Sweetener  (see notes)
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder (use a good quality cocoa powder for best flavor)
  • 1/2 tsp. fine sea salt
  • 3/4 cup Lily's Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup slivered almonds, toasted and chopped
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 4 egg whites at room temperature

Instructions

  1. Take eggs out of the fridge and let them come to room temperature while you preheat the oven to 325F/170C.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Put almonds in a dry pan and toast them over low heat for 3-4 minutes, just until almonds become fragrant.
  4. Coarsely chop the almonds.
  5. Separate egg whites from yolks (discard the yolks or save for another purpose.)
  6. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the Monkfruit Sweetener, cocoa powder, salt, sugar-free chocolate chips, toasted chopped almonds, and unsweetened shredded coconut and stir to combine.
  7. Mix in the room-temperature egg whites and stir until all ingredients are moistened.
  8. Use a cookie scoop to make rounded balls of dough and space them about 2 inches apart on the parchment paper.
  9. Bake 16-18 minutes, or until the tops of the cookies look dry, turning the cookie sheet once halfway through the baking time.
  10. Let cookies cool completely before storing in a plastic snap-tight container.

Notes

You can definitely make these cookies with any sweetener you prefer, but since I have discovered Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link) I use that for baking. You can probably use Golden Monkfruit for this recipe but I think the Classic Monkfruit dissolves better in recipes where there isn't much liquid.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Made with Monkfruit or another approved sweetener, Sugar-Free Flourless Chocolate Coconut Drops are a pretty healthy cookie. However, they do have some sugar in the unsweetened coconut and are pretty calorie-dense, so they would be limited to Phase 2 or 3 for the original South Beach Diet. They may be too high in carbs for stricter low-carb diets.
