Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies (Illinois)

Since we get lots and lots of snow in the Midwest, I better add snowflakes (coconut) to my cookie recipe to represent Chicago, Illinois. Golden and slightly crispy on the outside while soft, melty and chocolate-y on the inside… with a light coconut-y flavor… these cookies are heaven!

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream the coconut oil and coconut sugar with an electric mixer, just until combined. Add the baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, vanilla and chickpea liquid. Beat to combine.
  3. Add the flour into the wet mixture and beat until well mixed. Fold in chocolate chips and coconut with a spatula.
  4. Spoon rounded tablespoons onto a baking sheet (I used a medium sized cookie scoop to make 9 larger cookies) then flatten each cookie using the palm of your hand, or a flat spatula.
  5. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden.
  6. Let cool on baking sheet for 1-2 minutes. Transfer to cool for several minutes more. Store in an airtight container for up to five days. Makes about 9-12 cookies.
Recipe Notes

*Make sure the coconut oil is not melted, but also not cold. Room temperature is best. You do not want any of the ingredients to be cold as to not mess with the oil consistency!
*Be sure not to overmix! Mix just until combined.
*Make sure the baking sheet is not sitting on the oven while it's being preheated. Adding cookie dough onto a warm baking sheet will ruin the cookies!
