Coconut Oil and Sea Salt Brownie Cookies

April 01, 2015

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.

Oh, well.  We still have cookies today.  Chocolate cookies made with coconut oil and they taste 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 crazy.

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!
