MCLV Mange: Coconut Cookie Cake

I made a new dessert this past Saturday and after putting up a picture on Instagram {you can follow me @moicontrelavie} it was clear that this recipe was going to need its own blog post. I based this on Purely Twins’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake, but as I didn’t have chocolate chips or cacao nibs so I decided to make it a coconut cookie cake instead.


{This version was made with applesauce & served with peanut butter soft serve}


  • 2 Cups Flour {I mixed 1 cup of almond meal with 1/2 cup coconut flour & 1/2 cup flax-seed meal}
  • 1.5 Tbsp Baking Soda
  • 2 Flax Eggs {See the description here}
  • 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Applesauce or Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/4 Cup Shredded Coconut


{This version was made with pumpkin puree & served with cherry soft serve}

The original recipe called for applesauce or pumpkin puree and I was curious what the difference would be so I tried both. The batter was a bit runnier with the applesauce but otherwise I barely detected a difference in the finished product.

What’s your favorite healthy oil or butter substitute in recipes?

  3. ooo that tastes like a great cookie cake.. Although I’ve never tasted a cookie cake till now, I’d love to try it out. However I was never really fond of coconut cookies.. They are sort of disturbing for my tummy! 😀

    • You could definitely do chocolate chip if the coconut upsets your stomach! Easy substitution.
