Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies

 

by contributor Lisa Thiele

 
Mmmm… soft, chewy, chocolatey and a hint of coconut, all in a single bite!
 
I find that bite size anything is almost more enjoyable. Less guilt and you can eat two for the “cost” of one. We all have our own justifications, right?
These are the perfect little cookies for a houseful of kids, big or small. Make a batch (or two) of these and I can guarantee they’ll be gone before the end of the night.

To make a cookie sandwich, add a small spoonful of ice cream or fat free cool whip (diet friendly) to the flat end of one cookie and then top with the second cookie. For a frozen “ice cream cookie sandwich”, throw them in the freezer and voila, delish!
This recipe is adapted from Two Peas and Their Pod and in my opinion; she’s the cookie queen!

    Where's my glass of milk? Or perhaps I can enjoy them with my coffee in the morning after the kids are off to school.

    I love how the ingredients are all excited(!)! It adds to my enjoyment of this recipe on paper–er–screen and will further that joy upon eating them. I may add oatmeal, flax and barley…

    Thank you Chris and thank you Two Peas and Their Pod!!!

    Hi, I found this recipe on pinterest, these cookies look delicious!! I was just wondering if one could use coconut oil instead of butter? Thanks!

      Sindy, I haven’t tried that so don’t feel comfortable recommending it. If you give it a try let us know how it turns out. Thanks.
