When I start a new school year, I like to begin with a clean slate: an organized room, a new planner, and healthy lunches. So, sorry for those of you craving chocolate ganache and Nutella buttercream frosting, but my attempt at a healthy streak continues! I traditionally bake my famous Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies for the first day of school and many advisory snacks after that, but with my healthy new state of mind, I decided to change it up by baking Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies. Of course, they must still be soft and chewy, but the recipe used coconut oil instead of butter, which I thought was worth a try. The cookies had a delicious soft and moist texture and the coconut flavor was very prominent just from using the coconut oil! Considering how soft, chewy, and coconut-y these cookies were, I really enjoyed them! Perhaps next time, I would substitute butter for the coconut oil to make the cookies richer, or at least just substitute half of it to retain the coconut flavor. Regardless, these cookies were absolutely amazing and using my new See’s Candies chocolate chunks certainly didn’t hurt…Enjoy!!!

ohhhh those look delicious, i was about to make coconut cookies yesterday lol, now i want to make them again :)
These look great! Where did you get coconut oil? Do regular groceries sell it?
Yes, it comes in a can because it’s typically solid at room temperature.
These are just super ! I am gonna try them this weekend.
We get these low-fat vegan cookies here that have coconut in them. But yes, why not make such things at home ! definitely !
I’ll add these to my list to try! Thank you.
I’ve been curious just how much using coconut oil adds coconut flavor. Sounds like it’s quite a bit, so good to keep in mind. Your cookies look like great study treats :-) Good luck as you start your new school year.
Sorry to hear that That’s the thing with , something that works for soeomne doesn’t always work for another. It’s so frustrtating! You just have to keep trying different things until you find what works for you
This recipe came at the perfect time. I just bought some coconut oil for the first time and I can’t wait to bake with them. I’m definitely trying this recipe.
Let me know how you like it! Enjoy!
I have a jar of coconut oil in my pantry….I now know what I’m using it for for. Thanks!!
I love country style cakes. Would you post your lemon cnoocut cake recipe?I have a delicious spiced chocolate banana bread recipe that is to die for. My own little invention.Oh and your Grandmother is divine! Would love to hear more about her.

I have been weighing the pros and cons of using coconut based products – fat fear vs. veganism, so I like seeing this post :)
Glad it helped. It tasted great; I probably prefer it for cooking stir fries/etc, though
