Ingredients
  • 2¼ cup white whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup rolled oats, ground semi fine to fine in a mini food processor
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup coconut oil, softened
  • ¾ cup organic coconut sugar (can sub regular sugar)
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 ounces (~2 cups) mini bitter sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • ½ cup unsweetened finely shredded coconut
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients (flour through cinnamon). In a larger bowl, beat coconut oil with sugars, vanilla and lemon juice until well combined. Stir in eggs and whisk for a minute or two until light and fluffy. Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients and whisk slowly until combined. Using a large spoon stir in chocolate chips, walnuts and shredded coconut by hand. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. When ready to bake, scoop ¼ cup rounded portions onto an cookie sheet lined with parchment paper at least 1½" to 2" apart. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes. Centers will still be slightly soft. Let cool on cookie sheet for ~5 minutes. Remove to wire rack to continue to cool and store in an air tight container.
