3/4 c coconut oil, at room temp
3/4 c brown sugar (or make your own by mixing 2 tsp molasses and 3/4c sugar together)
1 tsp vanilla
2 c whole wheat pastry flour (you could use regular flour)
1/4 c cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 c chocolate chips, chunks, pieces, whatever
Cream coconut oil and sugar, then add eggs and vanilla. Add dry ingredients, then chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 9-10 minutes.
I used virgin coconut oil in this, so it gives it a slight coconut taste. My coconut oil was solid but not rock-hard when I mixed it with the sugar.
I think it'd be really good to add some flaked coconut and nuts, sort of German-cake-like, but my kids don't care for flaked coconut. I may try that in the future, though.
These cookies are a nice treat but are not overly sweet. Everyone in the house loved them (well, Gyunay is not really that into chocolate cookies, but he did eat one, so I figure that he liked it ok).
This recipe only makes about 3 dozen cookies. They are already gone.
