Brett and I just enjoyed a weekend babyboon/staycation and as much rest as I got (we seriously ate and slept so much!) I woke up feeling under the weather today. Stuffed up, headache, and still soooo tired. As much as I want to stay in pj’s, watch Christmas movies and bake cookies today…..MONDAY calls. Ugg. But last week while Brett’s parents were here I whipped up these Brown Sugar Cinnamon Coconut Oil Cookies!
They are one of my favorites to make around the holidays! Soft and chewy, sweet and cinnamon-y with a hint of coconut! Almost like a snickerdoodle, but not quite a snickerdoodle. Promise you’ll love ’em!
I attempted a paleo version last week too, but it flopped. So maybe sometime this week I’ll attempt it again. But at least these are made with coconut oil- good healthy fat for ya! Let’s call them healthy mmmkay!
Brown Sugar Cinnamon Coconut Oil Cookies
Yield 18 cookies
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a stand mixer, beat coconut oil and brown sugar together until creamy. Beat in vanilla and egg.
Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt to the bowl then mix in until combined.
Scoop with a cookie dough scoop onto baking sheet. Bake for 9 minutes or until just barely golden on the bottoms. Remove and let cool for several minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. *best if you underbake just slightly!
