Healthier Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

When it comes to cookies, I think the real thing is best.  If your going to indulge you may as well go for it!  I skimmed a 1/4 cup of butter from this recipe and added a bit of whole wheat flour.  Just enough to make them a bit healthier but not so much that they lack in flavor!

You'll Need:
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick softened butter
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla or almond extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (I used 1 cup of white and 1 cup semi sweet)
 Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper.  Place softened butter and sugars in a mixing bowl and mix until fluffy.  Add in the eggs and vanilla (or almond extract).  Add in flour 1/2 cup at a time and the salt and baking soda.  Finally add in the coconut and chocolate chips.  Place heaping spoon fulls onto baking sheet and bake 8 - 9 minutes.
