Coconut oil has been all the food blogging rage for a while now.

As usual, I’m kinda behind with the trends in food. You haven’t seen any quinoa around here, have ya? Noooo. See,behind in the trends! 🤷

That’s ok..we still have cookies today. Chocolate cookies made with coconut oil and they taste just like brownies.

These are craaazzzyy good. Crazy!

We ate them in about 2 hours at my house. Those 2 hours also include these photos. You can’t see it, but, there was three of my children hovering very impatiently over my shoulder while I shot these.

Are you done?

Are you done?!

Are you done yet?!!?

Ah!Talk about craaazzyyy.

I can’t really blame them. As mentioned, these are crazy good.

They are little fudge delights topped with sea salt. Which, makes the best topping ever. The sweet/salty combo is perfect.

As for coconut oil, this is the first time I’ve used it. I loved it. It gives the the a slight nutty flavor, but, is really light. Definitely be using it much more. So, go out, get some coconut oil and make these cookies.

Get to it!

These are absolutely delicious. I did half chocolate chips and half toasted pecans. This recipe bakes up great. Brownie texture and lovely salt ratio.

These turned out great Erin..and I subsituted cacao powder for the cocoa and they were still plenty sweet enough- thanks for sharing a great recipe!

This is probably one of the best cookies I've ever eaten. I did a tiny bit less brown sugar and added roasted pecans but otherwise followed the recipe. Salt & chocolate just go so well together. I've made the recipe twice now and book marked it because I know I'll make it again & again! Thank you!
