Today it seems my computer is not handling the margins correctly so I'm going to get right to the point and share this very good coconut cookies recipe. Enjoy!
3/4 Cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup of firm coconut oil
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup sweetened coconut
Preheat oven to 325º F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat.
Cream together the coconut oil (or shortening) and sugar until light and fluffy with an electric mixer. Mix in the egg and vanilla. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix into the shortening and sugar mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and coconut flakes.
Drop cookie dough by the tablespoon onto prepared baking sheets, leaving about 1½-inches between each cookie. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the cookies have turned lightly brown and are set. Allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
