I hardly ever stray from my very favorite Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies. There’s just something about the slight coconut oil flavor that I love, plus the texture is pretty much perfection. You should probably try them 🙂
But THESE cookies you guys!!!! They knocked my socks off. They’re like the big, fat bakery style chocolate chip cookies. I mean really, look at the size of the dough. 1/4 cup of dough for each cookie!!
I don’t even know why I made these (I’m really trying to eat clean) other than Miles has become my newest baking buddy and I can’t tell his sweet face no when he wants to make cookie balls. He’s really in it for the cookie dough, and he calls them cookie balls. He usually swipes a ball of dough from the baking sheet before I get them into the oven.
A few tips for making these juuuuuust right.
1) Melt the butter. Then let it cool a little. (don’t mix the sugars and eggs in while it’s hot!)
2) Cream, cream, cream the butter + sugars real good….like, just let the mixer go for a few minutes!
3) Chill the dough. It’s always a good idea to chill cookie dough– it makes for thicker cookies.
