Dark Chocolate Chip Coconut Oatmeal Cookies


It's time for another round of Mystery Dish! *Cue dramatic game show music*

I feel like I speak for all of our Mystery Dish members when I say that this month was crazy hectic. But thankfully, we all found the time to get our creative juices flowing just in time for this month's reveal!


Our host for this month was Sherri of The Well Floured Kitchen. She gave us: dark chocolate, greek yogurt, berries, coconut oil, walnuts, fish, baby spinach, and pecorino romano cheese. You already know my mind went straight towards the chocolate. The coconut oil caught my eye as well. It took about 0.5 seconds after that to decide I was making cookies.


December is basically cookie month after all, so it just made sense to take that route. Since I've made coconut oil chocolate chip cookies, and coconut oil oatmeal cookies, the next obvious thing for me to make was a combination of the two!


Now I don't mean to brag, but these are pretttty friggin' amazing y'all. Like crazy super duper good. Remember this commercial? Well, that's precisely how you'll feel after trying these cookies.


They are thick, soft, chewy and packed with chocolatey coconut flavor. I used both rolled oats and quick oats so their texture is on point. My brother, who usually hates everything I make with coconut oil literally could not keep his hands out of the cookie jar.

I'm really liking this good luck I've been having with cookies lately, I hope it continues!
