Chocolate Coconut Oatmeal "Health Food" Cookies!
These are about as healthy as a chocolate chip cookie can manage to get, I guess. At least I like to think so. I've been tweaking things around trying to come up with the perfect whole food cookie recipe and I think I finally managed it. Please make these today!
1 c butter
3/4 c sucanat sugar
3/4 c demerara sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Add and combined:
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups freshly ground spelt flour (you can use plain whole wheat)
3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup quick oats (I'm sure you could use more old fashioned if you want)
1 3/4 c chocolate chips
1/2 cup chipped coconut (optional...but why would you opt out?)
Bake at 350* for 8-10 minutes
(This bake time is on a stainless steel sheet with parchment paper. Darker, non-stick pans would be different - just keep checking them.)
Enjoy with a cold glass of milk!
