Mini Chocolate Chip and Coconut Cookies

It’s that time of year again – packing school lunches. I normally don’t like to pack sweets in my kids’ school lunches but I decided to surprise them this week with these tiny sweet treats that I found on Two Peas and Their Pod. I adapted the recipe by adding coconut oil & flaked coconut. The kids were absolutely thrilled & loved these cute little cookies. It was an easy way to put smiles on their faces.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with silpat mat.

Combine the flour, salt, and baking soda together; mix well.

Cream the butter, coconut oil, sugars, egg, and vanilla together until creamy and smooth with a beater. Slowly mix in the flour, until combined. Stir in 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips and coconut.

Roll dough into tiny balls (about 2 teaspoons of dough). Place on baking sheet and slightly flatten with the palm of your hand. Place a few mini chocolate chips on the top of each cookie, if needed.

Place into the oven and bake for 8 minutes or until cookies are golden brown and set. Remove from the oven and let cool on baking sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
