Can I just say coconut and chocolate in a cookie……is everything I Love in a cookie. So I decided to give them a try. So let’s get baking.
1 Cup All Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup of Unbleached Wheat Flour (you can certainly used 1 1/2 Cup of all purpose flour instead)
1/2 Cup of Organic Brown Sugar ( DIY recipe here)
1/2 Cup of Organic Cane Sugar
1 Tbsp Organic Vanilla Extract
1/4 Cup Organic Squash Puree
1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips
1/2 Shredded Coconuts (unsweetened)
3 Tbs Organic Vegetable Shortening (melted)
1 Tbs Almond Milk
I used a hand mixer to make the cookie dough.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Preheat oven to 325°
In a medium bowl sift flour, baking soda and salt and set aside.
In a large bowl cream sugar’s, melted shortening.
Now add vanilla and squash and mix.
Add half of sifted flour mix. Add the other half of flour and milk and mix.
With a spatula fold in chocolate chip’s and shredded coconut.
Using a 1″ scoop, place dough onto the baking sheet and bake for 16-17 minutes.
Once done remove and let cool for 3 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack to completely cool.
Yields 22 cookies
The cookies will have a nice crisp outside and soft and chewy inside.
The cookies were so yummy….that my so called coconut hater loved them.
Enjoy & Until Next Time,
