As I was saying in my Tropical Traditions Product Review post that can be seen here... Everyone loves chocolate chip cookies-but sometimes they can get a little boring! (shh... don't tell my mother - aka the queen of chocolate chip cookies that I said that!) I decided to jazz up my mother's famous chocolate chip cookie recipe but giving it a little hint of the islands :)
I don't know about you but I love summer-and everything that goes along with it! Sun, sand, surf (ok...I live in the Midwest and don't see much sand or surf-but it's still fun to dream!) I especially love summery foods... grilling, cold drinks, and sweet treats! This cookie recipe is what happens when Mr. Chocolate Chip Cookie decides to take a vacation to Honolulu!
Ingredients (Makes over 7 dozen cookies) :
-2 cups coconut oil
-1 cup white sugar
-2 cups brown sugar
-2 tsp. baking soda
-1 1/2 tsp. salt
-2 tsp. vanilla
-1 cup chocolate chips
-1 cup coconut flakes (optional-but very delicious!)
-6 cups flour (can use whole wheat pastry flour)
1. Preheat oven to 350*
2. Mix all ingredients (except flour and chocolate chips) in a large mixer
3. Slowly add flour and chips
4. Place teaspoon size dough balls onto a greased cookie sheet
5. Bake around 10 minutes (cookies should not be browned at all!)
Soft, chewy, moist, sun-kissed goodness!
Mmm! Just when I thought nothing could beat a chocolate chip cookie this little tropical treat comes along!
