Coconut Chocolate Chunk Cookies (Dairy Free)
Boy do I have a treat for you today! These coconut chocolate chunk cookies are going to be your new best friend in just a day.
I was craving chocolate chip cookies really bad the other day so I went in search of a new recipe. I love trying out new CCC recipes as everyone claims to have the best. But because I am currently on a dairy-free diet to determine if my little man is lactose-intolerant while breastfeeding, I needed a recipe that didn’t use butter. Of course coconut oil is already a staple in my pantry so one that will substitute butter with coconut oil will be a great choice.
And then I ran into Ali’s recipe. I immediately knew I would love it because she always has stellar recipes. And boy was I in for a treat. They are just amazing!! Thick, soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies with coconut oil. I had to remake them after that first try as they were gone in two days. My second try, I added a hint of cinnamon to them (a trick I learned from my mother-in-law) and some sea salt to balance the flavors. I also used chocolate chunks instead of chocolate chips. The cookies are still THICK, SOFT and CHEWY and the best cookies I’ve made to date.
So my friends, if you are looking to try a new chocolate chip cookie recipe, these coconut chocolate chunk cookies should be next. Make them!! And please chill them…I tried not chilling for the recommended time and they were OK but after chilling they are AMAZING. So it’s worth the wait. Plus two hours is great time to go for a walk, hit the gym or some yoga to enable you to indulge later guilt-free in these cookies. Adapted from Gimme Some Oven
