Coconut Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Servings: 2 1/2 dozen cookies
- 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
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.
