Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies
I love Steph at Plain Chicken and this is one of her recipes. It sounds like a winner! I have no idea why I don't think to use coconut oil in cookies and cakes in place of the butter or other oils.
3/4 cup coconut oil
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Beat together coconut oil and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in vanilla.
Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Slowly add flour mixture to mixer. Stir in chocolate chips.
Scoop dough into 2 Tbsp rounds. Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until bottoms are golden brown.
