Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies

I never really made cookies from scratch because I was too scared I’d mess up the whole batch and then end up throwing the whole thing away. So I always ended up buying store bought cookies or at a local cookie shop. I started practicing making cookies from scratch and it was a WHOLE NEW WORLD! haha. Especially when they come straight out of the oven! Nice, warm, soft, chewy…mmmmm…melts in your mouth. 
We had about 20 people over at our house the night I made these cookies and let’s just say…they didn’t last long on the tray! haha.
I wanted to try a new version of chocolate chip cookies. So I added unsweetened shredded coconut and coconut sugar since it adds a nice flavor to it. Also, sprinking little flakes of sea salt on top. I’ll be making this again for sure.
Warning: NOT CLEAN recipe =P BUT super yummy and addicting! =P

Makes 1 dozen. 


  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour

  • 6 Tbsp light brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, mix the butter and sugar together.
