In my journey to eat food that helps and heals my body, rather than hurts it, I have fallen in love with coconut – especially coconut oil. Considering two years ago I wouldn’t even drink a pina colada, I am totally surprised that I now add coconut oil to foods as often as I can.

Coconut oil is so versatile and delicious, I use it in everything from popcorn topping, like my Peanut Butter Nutella Popcorn, to baking, like my Pumpkin Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies.

With these gluten free, chocolate chip cookies, I pumped up the coconut flavor and nutrition by using coconut oil, shredded coconut, coconut milk, and even some coconut flour. (Because coconut flour absorbs a lot of liquid, I used coconut milk to add moisture to the recipe.) Yes, these are some very coconut cookies!
