Coconut Oil Brown Sugar Cookies // take a megabite

Last night a waiter refilled my beer with water. I take these things kinda seriously. I think I high-voiced him, “But that’s my beer!” It shocked me!

These cookies, on the other hand, are a pleasant surprise. Because can you believe it’s possible to cream softened coconut oil and sugar together? And that it can make dough that’s as pretty as ice cream? Believe it, sister.

So here’s the thing. These cookies are so soft! They are cakey, even! And you might taste coconut, in a fun vacation way, not a sun-tan lotion way. Mostly, these are a surprise worth encountering. Don’t take my word for it! Get the dough ready right away, since it needs to chill a bit (it has an attitude) before baking.

Coconut Oil Brown Sugar Cookies (makes 30+)
Recipe from Averie Cooks

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, softened like soft butter*
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 T vanilla extract
  • 1 T molasses
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 t corn starch
  • 1 t baking soda
  •  1/4 t kosher salt
  • maple sugar or turbando and sea salt, for sprinkling

* If the coconut oil is super firm microwave it at 5 second intervals until softened like room temperature butter, but NOT melted.

Directions:

  1. Cream together the coconut oil, sugar, and egg until combined. Scrape the sides of the bowl and mix in the vanilla, molasses.
  2. Add the flour, corn starch, baking soda, and salt. Beat until mixed completely. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours.
  3. When ready to bake, preheat your oven to 350F and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Using a small cookie scoop, or a teaspoon, scoop the dough and roll it into a ball. Place on a prepared baking sheet and flatten slightly. Sprinkle lightly with sugar and salt. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes or until cookies are just set and barely darkened at the edges.
  5. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a couple minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

My husband and I were out at a theater in BK where you can order food/drinks this past weekend; we ordered tater tots (because duh) followed by burgers. When our burgers came out, they took away our half eaten plate of tots! I was outraged! But I had to be silently outraged because there was a movie playing. I mourned the loss of my tots as I’m sure you mourned the loss of your beer.

Oh, and these cookies look awesome, too! :P

Ah! The tots! It’s a damn shame.

And thanks!

I sure hope that waiter dude got you a new beer, free of charge.
On a happier note, these cookies look amazing! I saw the recipe on Averie’s site and wanted to give them a try then too. Yum!

Well, they gave me a half beer since it wasn’t full… It was a close call! And yes! Averie shot them beautifully. I needed them in my life.

These were AMAZING!!! I changed it up a bit and used a ripe banana plus a little less than the 1/2 cup coconut oil and 1/2 cup quick oats and 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips. Will be making these again and again!! Thanks for the recipe!
