Now, have we ever tried to act like we’re professional chefs or maestros in the kitchen? No; we leave that to our tastemakers. What we can do though are the basics, ones we all know and love (and we think we do them pretty well). After all, potatoes never get old right?
We don’t bake nearly as often as we cook, but when we do, chocolate chip cookies are always a crowd pleaser. As many of you know, we are a little bit obsessed with Karlie’s Kookies, so in creating our essential cookie we set out to make something a little granola-bar-esque, inspired by our favorite snack. Rolled oats, coconut oil (which, by the way, makes you glow) and coconut date sugar are a few key ingredients to this very delicious and slightly healthier cookie.
– 1 cup coconut date sugar
– 1/4 cup honey
– 1 cup cold coconut oil
– 1 tsp vanilla
– 1 egg
– 2 cups rolled oats
– 1 1/2 cups flour
– 1 tsp baking soda
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 3/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
– 3/4 cup dark chocolate chunks
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine coconut oil, sugar, and honey in a mixing bowl. Once combined, mix in vanilla and egg. Sift together dry ingredients. While mixing, slowly add dry ingredients. Once all ingredients are fully incorporated, carefully stir in chocolate chunks. Using a spoon, scoop dough into evenly sized balls. Place on an un-greased cookie sheet about 1.5 inches apart.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown.
