Mini Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are yum-o! They are soo good that I ate 4 within 5 mins! You need to make them, they are super delish :)

Summer is finally here! For a lot of you spring has just arrived, but here it’s already in the 80s :) ! The weather is Purrrfect! We are starting to go to the pool and tan and sip on Pina Coladas :) But now I really need to cut down on the cookies, because love handles in a bikini – not cute! Anyway, these are really easy to make and refreshingly tasting :) You also don’t need any butter just some coconut oil! (Though of course they won’t be as flat as butter but just as delish, I promise)

Mini Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes 16 cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp coconut oil, measured solid (melted and slightly cooled)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 cup + 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp coconut extract
  • 1 cup flour (divided use)
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Directions: Preheat oven to 325F. In a bowl, whisk together the coconut oil and sugars. Let it sit for 15 mins. Whisk in the egg, vanilla and coconut extracts. Make sure you whisk well so they aren’t any brown sugar chunks! Add 1/2 cup of flour, baking soda and salt and mix well with a spatula. Add the remaining flour and mix with your hands (or spatula to combine). Fold in the shredded coconut and chocolate chips. Take about 1 tsp of cookie dough, roll into a ball and place on a baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Bake for 7-9 mins. Let cool completely before enjoying :)

  1. I’ll have to try this! I’m always looking for new ways to get the coconut oil into recipes. I’ve been leery of substuting it for butter in cookies.

  2. Thank you for sharing your recipe! My boyfriend is going to freak out because he loves coconut more than anything! I am going to try to make these sometime this week for him. I’ll let you know how it goes & I will try not to eat too many. :) (especially since I post what I eat on my blog!)

  3. I have to try these. Chocolate+coconut= :-)

  4. Yum, I loooove chocolate and coconut combos! Will definitely be making some soon!
