1/2 cup of granulated or powder sweetener of choice
1/4 cup and 1 tbsp of coconut oil
2 whole eggs
1 cup of fine unsweetened coconut flakes ( bob red mill brand) 
4 tbsp of water
1 cup of almond flour ( honeyville brand)

Method: 
Preheat the oven at 375F
In a small cup put the coconut flakes and add the 4 tbsp of water, mix and set aside to hydrate
In another bowl mix the almond flour, baking powder and salt and set aside
Now in a bigger bowl add the coconut oil and the sweetener of choice, using electric mixer mix till it's well combine
Add the egg one by one and continue to beat it
Add the coconut flakes and the almond flour mixture and combine well
I use a cookie scooper about 1 1/2 tbsp is the size and it yields me 25 small cookies
Flatten the cookies a little
Baked for 13-15 minutes in the trird rack of the oven in silicone or parchment paper so it won't stick 
Let it cool
You can also put some melted chocolate on top once it cools down
