Coconut-Pecan-Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

We just found a way to make chocolate chip cookies even more addictive! This recipe was a hit with our guests—and, we have to admit, we ate our share too.

Coconut-Pecan-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes about 4 dozen

1     cup coconut oil

¾    cup brown sugar, packed

¾    cup sugar

1     tsp. vanilla extract

2     eggs

2 ½ cups flour
1     tsp. baking soda
1     tsp. salt
2     cups chocolate chips
½    cup unsweetened coconut flakes
½    cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350°.
Cream together the coconut oil and both sugars until light and fluffy. Add vanilla; then add eggs, one at a time, mixing well. Sift together dry ingredients and gradually add to batter. Mix in chocolate chips, coconut and pecans.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment, silicone sheet, or lightly grease. Using a cookie scoop or large spoon, form dough into balls and place onto sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Remove to wire rack to cool.

NOTE: You can shape cookies, place close together on cookie sheet and freeze. Once cookies are frozen, place in a large freezer bag and freeze up to three months. To bake, place in a 325° for 15 minutes, or until cookies are golden brown.
