Spread the coconut on a small rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 3 minutes, stir, and if still not brown, about for another 1 to 3 minutes, or until coconut starts to brown. It will brown quickly, so keep a close eye on it. Remove from the oven and let the coconut cool for 5 minutes, or until no longer hot. Measure out 1 cup (85g) coconut flakes and keep the rest on the baking sheet.
In a medium mixing bowl stir together the 1 Cup Coconut flakes, oat flour, quinoa flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the sugar, melted coconut oil, eggs, honey, extract and water. Add the dry mixture into the wet mixture and stir until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or until it is no longer sticky and it's easy to roll into balls. Once chilled, remove the dough from the refrigerator and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes while preheating the oven to 350 degress (175 C.)
Form rounded tablespoons of the dough and roll the balls in the remaining 1 Cup of toasted coconut. Place the balls on the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 6 to 9 minutes or until no longer wet on the top. They may crackle a little. If you break one open, they may not look fully cooked but they will continue to cook as they cool. Let the cookies sit for 2 minutes on the baking sheet, and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
