Ingredients

  • ¾ cup coconut oil, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat together the coconut oil and both sugars until a creamy.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla extract. Incorporate into the sugar mixture.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon; mix well.
  • Add in the oats, coconut, and chocolate chips; fold into the mixture.
  • Using a two-tablespoon sized cookie/ice cream scoop, drop the batter on a lined cookie sheet leaving space for expansion while baking. (I placed four rows of three on a large baking sheet.)
  • Once the dough is in place, slightly flatten with the palm of your hand. At this point, you can add 4 or 5 extra chocolate chips on top of each cookie before baking. This is completely optional.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for two minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
