These coconut sugar cookies are so simple and easy. Just like a regular cookie but with a little extra with coconut flour added into the mix. Coconut flour adds a nice flavor that way you don’t need to add any of that fake coconut extract. You can firm the dough up in the fridge and cut out into desired shapes and even add on these super cute mermaid edible images or use whatever cookie cutter you like!

Above are some products that I personally use and recommend for this recipe and to have for everyday use. When making these coconut sugar cookies you absolutely, no exception, have to use coconut flour! If you try to sub it out for regular flour or almond flour than they will not turn out the way they are supposed to. So please stick to the recipe or else it won’t turn out for you. Coconut flour should be available at your local grocery store, otherwise I have provided a link for you to get it from amazon.
