I kind of love cookies, like reeeallly love cookies and these babies are topping the charts this month. If you are a cookie, coconut and dark chocolate lover, say hello to your new guilty pleasure!
1 Cup Coconut Oil (I like the Nutiva brand from Costco it has a strong coconut flavor)
1 Cup White Sugar
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Coconut Extract
¾-1 Cup of shredded coconut (add to your desired consistently)
3 Cups of Flour (add to your desired consistency, I like them more stiff)
½-¾ bag of Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat oven to 350. Combine coconut oil, and sugars in a big Kitchen Aid (or any other brand) mixer using the wire whisk attachment. Add eggs and mix for a few seconds. Add baking soda, salt and coconut extract. Mix again. Switch to the paddle attachment. Add shredded coconut. Mix. Add Flour ½ cup at a time while the mixer is still going. Try not to get flour all over the place, good luck. Add chocolate chips. Devour… okay not really but I dare you to only take one small taste of the cookie dough.
Roll into desired size balls, I usually do a little smaller than a golf ball, and evenly distribute onto an ungreased cookie sheet. If you want bonus points roll in shredded coconut flakes. Bake for 8-9 minutes at 350. Do not overcook. This makes about 36 cookies, that is if you don’t eat all the cookie dough beforehand. #youvebeenwarned.
