One of my friends was telling me about how she had made cookies with coconut oil, and thought they were really good. I guess its supposed to be a healthy, good for you oil. I was skeptical, but when I saw some on Pinterest, they looked pretty good.
SO I pinned them and tried them!
We really liked them. I kind of expected to taste coconut, but I couldn't. They tasted pretty much like regular cookies, with a great texture and buttery taste. I was pleasantly surprised. Although, I do love coconut flavor, so if they did taste like it, I would have loved it.
I guess I'll do a little more research on baking and cooking with coconut oil, and try out a few more recipes!
1/2 c. coconut oil, room temp
1/2. brown sugar
1/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. flour
3/4 c. chocolate chips
Cream the coconut oil and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat well. Add the dry ingredients and stir in the chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for about 9 minutes, just until the edges start to turn light brown.
