Several of you asked for the recipe I used so I decided to blog it for my gorgeous readers! You can replace the butter in your own chocolate chip cookie recipe (or pretty much any other baked goods recipes!) with coconut oil. The replacement is equivalent.. So 1 cup of butter would need to be replaced by 1 cup of coconut oil. Just remember, coconut oil melts much faster than butter! I was so nervous to bake with coconut oil my first time.. I was afraid that my food would have a coconut-y aftertaste. Boy, was I wrong! Coconut oil has literally no coconut taste to it at all. You can bake any of your recipes with coconut oil and it will not change the flavor!Here’s the recipe I followed for the cookies pictured above..
I posted this photo on my Instagram account a couple of weeks ago:
– 3/4 cup (melted) coconut oil
– 1 cup (firmly packed) brown sugar
– 3/4 cup sugar (can 1/2 cup to decrease sugar content)
– 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
– 2 eggs
– 1 tsp. baking powder
– sprinkle of salt
– 2 1/4 cup flour
– 1 bag (2 cups) milk chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour your pan or line with parchment paper. Mix together your melted oil, brown sugar and sugar. Once well blended, mix in your vanilla and eggs. Add in baking powder, salt, and flour. Once everything is mixed to a nice consistency, add in the chocolate chips. Scoop dough to make cookie size of your choice, I prefer bigger cookies between 1-2 tbsp. sized cookies. Bake 10-12 minutes and enjoy!
