Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies
May 31, 2013 § Leave a comment
I am a firm believer in alliteration and chocolate chip cookies. They’re the classic all american cookies. And probably my favorite dessert, tied with jell-o no bake cheesecake and brownies.
A little variation in these cookies is a great thing too. What to make it a little healthier? We’re subbing butter for coconut oil. We’re also adding some coconut flakes for texture and crunch. If you bring a box to work they may disappear before lunch time. Nurses are a hungry bunch.
They’re pretty straightforward to make too. We’ll start with mixing the coconut oil and brown sugar in your stand up mixer (or using an electric hand-held mixer).
Dump in the flour and you end up with this beautiful dough. Delicious to snack on I might add, if you’re okay with a little bit of raw egg. I suppose I shouldn’t advocate for that though. Finally make yo cookies! They don’t spread out as much as other recipes I’ve made and are a delicious combination of chewy with a little bit of that coconut crunch.
