Chocolate Drop Cookies

One thing I am NOT allergic to is chocolate. Yes, there is a reason to live! This cookie is pretty tasty, adapted from a recipe that won me a blue ribbon in the Montana Winter Fair.

Chocolate Drops
1/2 C butter
1 C sugar
1 egg
1 C sour cream (if you're allergic to corn, check the label-many brands add corn starch)
1 tsp vanilla
1 C potato starch
1 C coconut flour
2/3 C cocoa
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 T milk
2 C chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugar, beat in egg. Add sour cream and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients and stir into butter mixture, add milk, then add chips. Using a cookie scoop, drop on greased cookie sheets. Pat down gently-cookie will not spread, so they have to be flattened a bit. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes, remove to cooling surface. Cookies are tender, but the freeze very well. I put them in a plastic container in the freezer and take one or two out at a time to eat.


  1. They make coconut flour? I am in heaven! I LOVE chocolate and I adore coconut! YUMMY!

  2. Yeah, you can buy coconut flour at most health food stores. Not cheap but it adds a bit of thickening to the dough, so you only need a little.


I am excited to hear from you, but I will check out your comment before posting it just in case... I do want your input and help with allergies!
