Cookies!!!Posted: July 9, 2012
The girls made cookies last night with Chris and me. They really liked them and were quite hyper trying to get ready for bed from all the sugar. We had a blast making cookies with them and I think the girls had a blast too!
The recipe that I used was a MSPI (no soy, no diary) recipe. They turned out really yummy! Here is the recipe:
Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup Coconut Oil
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup sugar
½ cup applesauce
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 1/2 – 3 cups flour (I needed all 3 cups, but you may want to begin with 2 1/2 cups and more flour if needed)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 12 oz bag Dairy-free chocolate chips/chunks
Heat your oven to 375F
Cream together the coconut oil and sugars. You could use a mixer here, but the upper arm workout is great if you want to go for it!
Add the applesauce and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients and stir until well combined.
Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and stir until well combined.
Next add chocolate chips. Take a nibble of that dough if you’d like. It’s ok. You know you want to!
Place rounded tablespoons of dough on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes until cookies are nice and gold around the edges.
Remove from oven and place on a wire wrack to cool.
Repeat these steps until you’ve worked your way through all the delicious dough!
