I created this coconut and chocolate chip cookie recipe to take with me to visit my family as chocolate cookies were one of my favourite things when I was growing up. This recipe is a gluten free, low fodmap, refined sugar free version! These cookies have an amazing soft texture in the centre, which I love, as they are slightly undercooked. If you prefer them a little crunchier then leave them in the oven for a few more minutes.
