I think I may have mentioned my love for all things coconut before and how coconut was my signature everything for a time in college and even a couple of years later. One of my favorite cookies, is my coconut chocolate chip cookie recipe. To-date is one of my more popular cookie posts and with good reason! It is fairly simple to put it together and tastes so good.
In the past, I’ve had a few people who were disappointed to see that my coconut chocolate chip cookies were not the healthy coconut chocolate chip cookies they were expecting. I can see where that can be confusing when a lot of bloggers are now replacing the less nutrious and calorie-laden compenents of baking with coconut. Well, today, I am here to share a much healthier version of these cookies. Now, I did still use some granulated sugar, but most of the sugar was replaced with the marvelous coconut sugar. I also swapped some of the flour for coconut flour. Annnnnnd, the butter was replaced with coconut oil. The results: a chewy, super coconuty chocolate chip cookie that is much better for you. Disclaimer: this does not mean eating eight of them won’t have any reprocussions. Everything in moderation, right? I totally are eight (okay, nine) of them and gave myself a little bit of a tummy ache from inhaling them so fast. So worth it though.
