Awesome Cookies

These taste like a combination of a chocolate chip cookie and a macaroon.  I don't usually like to share recipes with such specialty ingredients but it is totally worth buying the coconut oil and coconut flour for this one.  I think these are some of the best cookies I have ever made and the whole family agrees.  Hope you try them and enjoy them as much as we do.

Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Preheat oven to 375.

1/2 cup coconut oil, I used virgin which smells slightly coconutty
2/3 cup unpacked brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla

Mix all in stand mixer or bowl with hand mixer till smooth and creamy.

Add 2 eggs and beat again till smooth.

Add in:
3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup quick or old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup coconut flour

Mix on low till thoroughly combined, won't be smooth due to oats.

Stir in 1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut and 1 to 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, I used a silicone lined pan.  Bake each tray for 10 minutes and let cool on pan a minute or two to firm up a bit.  Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely before storing airtight.

Hope you like them!
