I keep hearing about the nutritious benefits of coconut oil so I
had to try it for myself - in chocolate chip cookies!
Conventional thought used to consider coconut oil an unhealthy
saturated fat. Research has now discovered that coconut oil is
actually a heart-healthy food that keeps your body running
Rather than using an entire stick of butter, I substituted in
coconut oil. My kids are not particularly fond of coconut so I was
worried about how these cookies would taste.
Well, you will not be disappointed. They turned out perfectly
crispy on the outside with a moist center. The sea salt chunks on
top are a MUST. The sweet and salty combo is heavenly! And of
course the kids helped with measuring, mixing, pouring, stirring,
and making a mess, but we did it together!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all ingredients except the sea salt and mix until
On a greased baking sheet, use a spoon and scoop out batter into
balls onto sheet with about an inch in between each cookie.
Sprinkle sea salt on top of each cookie.
Bake cookies for 12-15 minutes or until cookies start to brown
around the edges.
