Author: Melanie - Carmel Moments

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup organic sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 8 oz semisweet chocolate squares chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Combine flour, baking soda, salt in medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Melt coconut oil. I just zapped it in the microwave. You can also heat it on the stovetop.
  • To the coconut oil add light brown sugar and organic sugar.
  • Mix on medium speed until well blended.
  • Add eggs. Mix well.
  • Add vanilla. Mix.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
  • Stir in unsweetened coconut. Stir in chocolate chunks by hand.
  • Scoop dough out. Shape into 1 1/2 in balls. I used my hands. No need for them to be smooth.
  • Place 9 on a baking sheet.
  • Bake for 13-16 minutes or until edges are set and lightly browned.
  • Wait one minute. Transfer to cookie rack to cool.
