Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies // I'm a big fan of coconut oil.  It works so well in these cookies! | Tried and TastyFirst of all, when I saw this recipe floating around the internet it had me at: coconut oil. I am an avid fan of coconut oil and was immediately intrigued. However, I still wanted to eliminated the white and brown sugar but still have a tasty cookie. My experimentation process was quite involved. After several changes and attempts, I finally ended up with a cookie that I was happy with. In fact, this is one of the recipes that I recently made at the Deseret News Home Show. So far I have yet to have anyone try them and not immediately fall in LOVE with them. They are pretty darn delish. Moist. Soft. Chocolatey. Delicious.  Even if you aren’t a coconut fan, give these a try. I personally can’t tell that there is even coconut in them.  If you can tell, I’ve heard it is just the slightest hint. Beware. These are ADDICTING.

Recipe Notes

[My 2 Cents]
I used the soft white winter wheat berries for this recipe and it turned out wonderful. I freshly grind the berries in my Blendtec right before adding it in the recipe. The fresher the flour, the higher the nutritional value. Of course, if you don't have the resources to grind your own wheat berries, you can buy store bought whole wheat flour as well.

      You are going to LOVE baking with coconut oil!! So much better for you – let me know what you think of the cookies, hope you love them as much as I do!

      They are about 5-10 minutes out. As long as you keep these babies in a ziplock, they stay soft for a day or two. There’s nothing better than biting in to a warm cookie!!!
