My mom introduced me to coconut oil and I am officially obsessed. But then again I am really up for anything that helps to cut out calories. The recipe below replaces a part of the butter requirement with the coconut oil and these little cookies turn out like a Mounds...yum!
Add 1 stick butter and ½ C coconut oil. Mix these together really well!
Add in ¾ C white sugar and ¾ C brown sugar and blend well again.
Add 2 eggs, one at a time
2 tsp of vanilla
1 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of salt
About 2 1/2 C of flour
About 3/4 C of chocolate chips
Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes
*Note: Be careful which oil you buy! You want organic virgin coconut oil that is unrefined for MEDIUM HEAT. I bought the stuff made for high heat and it was an $8 mistake, so be sure to read the labels! :)
