Healthy Cookies!

I'm about to surprise your mouth. I had been making up these cookies from Picky Palate. They are the bomb. You can bake them right away or freeze the dough for later, (great for when people stop by and you need something to serve!)  so - very versatile... and now to take them up a notch. 
I have a friend who has given me a little push towards coconut sugar in place of regular sugar for baking... so I experimented on these, and I mean come on, guilt free cookies? Top notch!

  • 1/2 cup virgin coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 (+ or -) cup Gold Medal Flour’s white whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 cup chocolate chips (removed for my friend but not for the rest of us)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper. Place softened coconut oil into a large mixing bowl. Stir in sugar, beating until well combined. Add applesauce and vanilla, beating well. Add flour, baking soda, and salt, stirring until dough forms.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet placing 1 inch apart. 
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until slightly golden around the edges. Remove and let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring. Serve and enjoy. Makes 2 dozen servings

*You can also pop these bad boys in the freezer after scooping on the baking sheet until you are ready to cook.
