Coconut dark chocolate chip cookies


Last week I went on a baking spree, whipping up all sorts of goodies with the ease of a cake boss (I blame my recent bout of cabin fever). My kitchen was a disaster zone of flour and mixing bowls. There were baked goods cooling in all nooks and crannies of the kitchen. All of my counter space was non-existent. One of the many recipes I experimented with was a coconut oil cookie recipe found (of course) on Pinterest. It looked good, and I had my vat of coconut oil that I have been using everyday for my skin. Why not use it in my boredom-induced cooking extravaganza! They ended up turning out deliciously and the entire plate of cookies was gone in the next couple of days. Definitely a hit. The original recipe can be found here.


1 cup all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons coconut oil, at room temp

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

3 TBSP honey

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 large egg

1 cup dark chocolate chips

1/3 cup shredded coconut



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In Kitchenaid mixer beat the coconut oil until smooth. Add the brown sugar, sugar, and vanilla extract and beat until creamy. Add the egg and beat well. Gradually mix in the flour mixture. Once smooth, add shredded coconut. Stir in the chocolate chips. Using a tablespoon drop the dough onto the cookie sheet. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until edges are just browned and middles are set. Let cool on the baking sheet for a couple minutes then move to a wire rack to finish cooling. Enjoy!
