28 Creative Keto Desserts Made With Coconut Flour

Louise Hendon | June 29

Coconut flour is simply dried coconut meat and can be a delicious alternative to other wheat and other grain-based flours. The best news? It’s 100% keto friendly!

Because it adds a note of coconut taste to recipes, this ingredient is perfect for desserts- whether you’re making a classic coconut cream pie or a more savory breakfast protein cookie! This list of coconut flour desserts is perfect for those who want to cut out traditional flours from their diet but still love baked goods like pies, cupcakes, and blondies.

Although coconut is great for adding a tropical note to recipes, it doesn’t have to be just flavors that remind you of the Caribbean islands.

We’ve also included some surprising recipes that feature coconut flour- such as gingerbread cookies, mug cakes, and even a lusciously silky French chocolate cake! These are perfect for folks who aren’t crazy about coconut but still want a Keto-friendly dessert!

Here are just a few of the Keto Desserts Made With Coconut Flour we’ve included:

Keto Cookies with Coconut Flour

Keto Ginger Coconut Cookies

– Keto Summit

Keto Ginger Coconut Cookies

Ingredients: almond meal, coconut flour, coconut flakes, egg, ghee, stevia, vanilla extract, ginger powder, baking soda.

Ginger cookies are a family favorite in our house and we always have some at Christmas time when friends and family come over. These keto cookies have a shortbread look to them and taste wonderfully crumbly and delicious and the ginger gives them a flavor boost. So if you fancy a ginger cookie, why not get the youngest members of the family to give you a hand, then you can all enjoy the results!

Basic Coconut Flour Cookies

– Low Carb Yum

Ingredients: coconut flour, baking powder, salt, butter, coconut oil, low carb sweetener, eggs, almond milk, vanilla extract.

If you have anyone in the family who is diabetic, it can be a real challenge to find baked goods that won’t cause them problems, and that’s where these great cookies come in handy! They are lovely and sweet with a crumbly texture and are gluten-free and make the perfect after-school treat to keep the little ones going. For special occasions, you can dress these up with a frosting of our choice.

Ingredients: butter, granulated sweetener of choice, coconut flour, baking powder, eggs, cacao nibs, vanilla.

These delicious cookies are so much healthier than regular ones as they are grain and gluten free and don’t involve refined sugars, but they taste amazing! This recipe only takes fifteen minutes from start to finish, so these would be good to make if people pop round unexpectedly. If you don’t have cacao nibs you can use chopped 90% chocolate or chocolate chips but this will increase the sugar.


Savory Breakfast Cookies

– The Curious Coconut

Ingredients: coconut flour, baking soda, unrefined salt, dried rosemary, dried granulated garlic, extra-virgin olive oil, coconut oil, gelatin, water, apple cider vinegar.

These must be about the most adaptable cookies ever as they are egg, grain and dairy-free and suitable for just about every diet plan there is! The texture is light and fluffy, but with a bit of a crunch, and they definitely taste best warm from the oven. These cookies are low in carbs but higher in healthy fats, making them great for breakfast as they will fill you up and keep you going till lunch.

Nut-Free Keto Gingerbread Cookies

– Keto Diet Blog

Ingredients: coconut flour, erythritol or swerve, Sukrin Gold, pumpkin pie spice, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, gluten-free baking powder, salt, eggs, coconut butter, water.

Nowadays nut allergies seem to be recognized more and more and many schools have banned nutty snacks, so recipes like this nut-free cookie one are perfect as they let you bake without any worries and these cookies can be a good addition to a kid’s lunchbox. The ginger and pumpkin pie spice give these cookies such a great flavor and they can be cut into any shapes you like.

Chewy Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies (Contains Dairy)

– Keto Connect

Ingredients: coconut flour, butter, egg, cream cheese, heavy whipping cream, erythritol, beef gelatin powder, baking powder, vanilla extract, Lily’s chocolate chips.

For many of us the perfect cookie should have a slightly chewy center and a crispy edge and with this great keto recipe that’s exactly what you get! They are amazing served warm, but tend to crisp up a bit once they have cooled. If you have a problem with beef gelatine you can simply use regular types to give exactly the same texture. Coconut flour can be tricky to work with so follow the recipe exactly!

Coconut Flour Cookies No Sugar

– Sweet as Honey

Ingredients: coconut flour, extra virgin coconut oil solid, monk fruit sugar (omit) or erythritol, vanilla extract, cashew butter, stevia chocolate, pumpkin seeds, unsweetened desiccated coconut.

If you are a fan of shortbread you will love these cookies as they have the same rich, buttery flavor and crumbly texture but they have no sugar, low carbs and are nut free and vegan. It is best to leave these cookies to cool completely before handling as they can be very crumbly but will firm up once cold. Stored in a cookie jar these delicious treats will keep for up to ten days.

Cinnamon Chocolate Coconut Flour Cookies

– Keto Diet Channel

Ingredients: coconut flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, cinnamon, aluminum-free baking powder, stevia powder, salt, eggs, coconut oil, vanilla extract, unsweetened shredded coconut.

If you like chocolate cookies but need to keep things low carb on your keto diet, this recipe will surely become a family favorite! This is a nut and gluten-free recipe that is suitable for both the paleo and keto diets. The flavors of cinnamon and chocolate are rich and delicious and these would be perfect for Christmas time. If you like your cookies firmer then you can store these in the fridge or freezer.

Best Keto Coconut Flour Cookies

– Healing in our Homes

Ingredients: coconut flour, butter, erythritol, eggs, unsweetened almond milk, aluminum-free baking powder, sea salt, vanilla extract.

There is something really appealing about homemade cookies – they always taste better than store-bought ones! This recipe is gluten and dairy free and can be enjoyed by diabetics as the erythritol will not affect blood sugar. The cookies can be decorated with chocolate chips or sprinkled with cinnamon, but I actually prefer these plain served with a nice cup of coffee!

Keto Cakes with Coconut Flour

Tres Leches Keto Cake for my B-day! (Contains Dairy)

– The Nourished Caveman

Ingredients: eggs, swerve, vanilla extract, coconut flour, butter, creme fraiche, coconut cream, organic heavy whipping cream.

Tres Leches cake is a sponge that is soaked in creamy sauce and left to absorb the liquid, hence the reason for poking holes in the top of the sponge. It ends up slightly denser than a sponge but should not be soggy. This recipe would be perfect for a birthday or Christening cake and would make a very impressive gift for a hostess. This keto recipe does use dairy so it should be used as a treat!

Coconut Frenzy Cake (Contains Dairy)

– I Breathe I’m Hungry

Ingredients: eggs, coconut cream, coconut-flavored syrup, coconut flour, dried unsweetened coconut, heavy whipping cream, stevia powder.

If you are a coconut lover and are looking for a cake to impress then look no further! This layered cake has all the coconut flavor you could want with a smooth and creamy filling and frosting, and it is gluten free and low carb. Your guests will be really blown away by how pretty this cake looks when you slice it and if you want to ramp up the coconut flavor, even more, you can decorate it with toasted coconut!

Strawberry Coconut Flour Mug Cake

– Low Carb Yum

Ingredients: coconut oil, strawberries, SweetLeaf stevia drops, monk fruit liquid extract, egg, coconut flour, baking powder.

With only a couple of minutes cooking time, mug cakes can be the ideal low carb treat to satisfy your sweet tooth. This one has the flavor of strawberry and has a lovely spongy texture and you can choose whether or not to use the frosting. Because the frosting adds to the carbs it might be a good idea to serve this plain and only use the frosting for special occasions.

French Silk Cake (Contains Dairy)

– Maria Mind Body Health

Ingredients: butter or coconut oil softened, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, Celtic sea salt, swerve, eggs, pure vanilla extract, sour cream, unsweetened baking chocolate, cream cheese, almond milk.

In this delicious cake recipe, the word ‘silk’ refers to the frosting which is smooth and so decadent in flavor and texture that it makes this a winner! With its layers of sponge and chocolate filling, this cake is gluten free and low carb and would be a great cake for any special day. If you don’t want to build up the layers you can simply place the mixture in a larger dish and cook it in one layer.

Coconut Flour Cupcakes

– Coconut Mama

Ingredients: eggs, coconut oil, coconut sugar, sea salt, vanilla extract, coconut flour, baking powder.

Cupcakes can be so much fun to make and serve for any occasion and these ones are also healthy as this is a grain and gluten free recipe. Topped with the fluffy chocolate frosting, these would make a lovely gift for a friend, but for an everyday treat these taste great without frosting. If you like you can also mix some chocolate chips into the batter before cooking, but this will increase the carbs.

Coconut Flour Cupcakes (Contains Dairy)

Ingredients: coconut flour, baking powder, salt, xylitol, butter or coconut oil, eggs, vanilla, milk, sparkling water.

There is a bit of a surprise when you read the ingredients in this great keto recipe as you are adding sparkling water to give the cakes a fluffy texture! These cupcakes taste amazing as they are but you also have instructions for three different frostings, so you can adapt these to suit any occasion. For example, the strawberry frosting would look lovely on heart shapes for Valentine’s!

Keto Coconut Flour Cupcakes (Contains Dairy)

– Hey Keto Mama

Ingredients: coconut flour, butter, erythritol, baking powder, vanilla extract, coconut cream, cream cheese, eggs.

With their light and golden color, these great cupcakes would look great served at a coffee morning or even a kid’s party. They have a light but moist texture that bites just like a good sponge cake, and you have the option to decorate them however you like. I have tried these with a lemon frosting sprinkled with toasted coconut shreds and it was delicious!

Other Keto Desserts with Coconut Flour

Chocolate Almond Keto Fat Bomb Recipe

– Keto Summit

Chocolate Almond Keto Fat Bomb Recipe

Ingredients: almond butter, coconut oil, cacao powder, coconut flour, stevia, whole almonds.

These keto sweets are melt-in-the-mouth, and taste amazing! If you have any left over, you are best to keep them in the fridge as they soften quite easily at room temperature. If serving them for children, instead of the whole almond, you can push a lolly stick into them – easier to eat and cuts down on sticky fingers! Why not serve these next time someone has a birthday party at home!

One Bowl Coconut Flour Brownies

– Cook Eat Paleo

One Bowl Coconut Flour Brownies

Ingredients: 100% cacao unsweetened chocolate 4-ounce bar, coconut oil, coconut sugar, vanilla extract, eggs, sea salt, espresso powder, coconut flour.

As I am quite a lazy baker, I really love this one bowl recipe! It is simple to follow and the brownies are a firm favorite in our house. This is a gluten and grain free keto recipe, but the brownies definitely taste rich and indulgent with just a hint of coffee from the espresso powder. Because these brownies are quite filling, try to cut them into smaller pieces than you might do normally and this will help you to not overeat them!

Keto Brownies Recipe – Delicious Choc Swirls (Contains Dairy)

– My Keto Kitchen

Ingredients: sugar-free Dark Chocolate, unsalted butter, natvia, coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, eggs, cream cheese, vanilla extract.

This fabulous keto dessert is a mixture of brownie and cheesecake and has a luxuriously rich texture that will satisfy any sweet cravings. When you cut these, you will reveal the swirly chocolate and cream layers which make these look amazing! These would make a lovely gift for a friend or a delicious treat for a special day and they can be frozen for up to one month so you can make them in advance.

Coconut Flour Raspberry Fingers

– Ditch the Carbs

Ingredients: butter, coconut flour, granulated sweetener of choice, vanilla, baking powder, eggs, frozen raspberries.

These pretty raspberry fingers make the ideal addition to a lunchbox for school as they are completely nut and gluten-free, making them safe for kids with nut allergies. Not only that, but they taste so good! This low carb recipe is easy to follow and the cakes don’t take long to make, so this would be great for busy people. Press the raspberries into the mixture at the end as this will stop them ‘bleeding’ into the mixture.

Paleo Chewy Coconut Brownie Bites

Ingredients: unsweetened coconut flakes, cocoa or cacao powder, erythritol, vanilla extract, egg whites.

With only five ingredients, these amazing bites are so easy to make, but they taste rich and decadent and would be great for dessert at a celebration dinner. They have a chewy texture with the flavor of chocolate and coconut which are fantastic partners but are also healthy for the keto diet as they are very low in carbohydrates and contain no gluten or grains.

Almond Butter Pumpkin Pie Truffles (Contains Dairy)

– Slim Palate

Ingredients: pumpkin puree, almond butter, cream cheese, cinnamon, nutmeg, grated ginger, coconut flour, stevia, cacao butter, vanilla bean pod.

These wonderful little truffles are packed with warming spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger, making them perfect to serve at Christmas, Thanksgiving or even Halloween. They have a rich texture like any good truffles but are grain and gluten free. If you find coating the truffles are a bit difficult, you might find it easier to stick a cocktail stick into each one and then dip them.

Cinnamon Crumble Coconut Flour Donuts

– Slim Palate

Ingredients: coconut flour, almond flour, baking soda, eggs, stevia extract, coconut oil, cinnamon, almond milk, vanilla extract.

Cinnamon is such a good spice to use in baked goods as it lifts the flavor so well and gives them the taste of the holidays. I often make cinnamon donuts for breakfast at Christmas and they go really well when you serve them with some fresh berries or some low carb cranberry sauce. These donuts are grain free but taste just as good as regular ones. If you find these a bit too sweet just cut down the amount of stevia.

Lemon Cream Cake Pops Low Carb (Contains Dairy)

Lemon Cream Cake Pops Low Carb

Ingredients: coconut flour, swerve, baking powder, baking soda, lemon zest, eggs, unsweetened almond milk, butter, lemon juice, cream cheese, lemon extract, coconut cream.

Cake pops are one of my favorite things to serve at a kid’s party, so I was so pleased to find this delicious keto recipe for lemon cake ones. This is also a great recipe to get the kids to help you make as they can crumble up the sponge for you – just remember to clean hands first! These pops are then dipped in a shiny lemon glaze and are ready once it sets.

Low Carb Coconut Blondies

– My Keto Kitchen

Ingredients: coconut oil, coconut butter, Natvia, coconut flour, baking powder, Vanilla Essence, eggs, unsweetened coconut.

The blondies in this great keto recipe are low carb and nut free and have a light and fluffy texture and a fabulous vanilla flavor. They are nut free and perfect for those people who have issues with refined sugars. You can either top these with coconut or sprinkle with a little cinnamon to give a warming spice taste. These blondies make a great dessert for a dinner party or a treat for during the holidays.

Coconut Flour Cake Donuts

– Maria Mind Body Health

Ingredients: coconut flour, Celtic sea salt, baking soda, eggs, swerve, coconut extract, coconut oil, vanilla, almond extract.

Like traditional cake donuts, these ones have a denser texture but are full of flavor and make the perfect low carb treat to enjoy either as they are or with a topping of your choice. They can either be made in a donut tin or a muffin tin to give the same texture and flavor. If you want to vary the flavor, try adding vanilla extract instead of coconut.

Low Carb Coconut Cream Pie (Contains Dairy)

– Keto Connect

Ingredients: coconut flour, butter, powdered erythritol/swerve confectioners, egg, coconut milk, heavy whipping cream, liquid stevia, vanilla extract, unsweetened coconut flakes.

With its luxurious creamy layers, this is the best keto alternative to regular coconut cream pie you will find! It has a crunchy, crumbly base which offsets the creaminess really well and this would be an impressive dessert to serve next time you have guests over for dinner. If you live in a hotter climate and want to make sure the cream topping doesn’t collapse, you can add a half teaspoon of gelatine.

Sugar-free Lemon Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting (Contains Dairy)

– Low Carb Maven

Ingredients: cream cheese, heavy cream, swerve confectioners, butter, Sukrin: 1, vanilla extract, LorAnn lemon oil, lemon zest, Bob’s Red Mill coconut flour, baking powder, salt, eggs, lemon juice.

I just love lemon cake and was delighted with the way these delicious sugar-free cupcakes taste, even without the creamy frosting! These would make a lovely dish to serve at a celebration, but they would make a great dessert after a main meal as the lemon acts as a palate cleanser and the light and fluffy texture will not be too filling. To make them look even better, sprinkle a little-grated zest on the top!
