A couple weeks ago, I found myself wasting time at the grocery store while waiting for the pharmacy to fill a prescription. So I flipped through some magazines. I don’t subscribe to the magazine (but should!), but I love looking at Cooking Light whenever I can. Course, the first thing I look for in the index of magazines is the desserts and goodies!
I saw these cookies and they kind of just look like a regular cookie. But the toasted coconut had me wanting to try them. The recipe can be found here at Cooking Light online. I followed the recipe exactly, except (there’s always a but ;), the recipe called for 2 ounces of chopped dark chocolate and I used 3 1/2 ounces. Whaa? I like chocolate. The cookies were fantastic. The coconut was really flavorful since it was toasted. And the cookies were a wonderful chewiness, even more so the next day. It was nice that the recipe was simple and straight forward. Ever try toasted coconut in your chocolate chip cookies? It’s good!
If you follow the recipe at Cooking Light, here are some of the stats about the cookies. I believe the recipe makes 2 dozen. Per cookie they have 88 calories, 3.8 grams fat, 1 gram protein, 13 carbs. Not bad! Just try to only eat one or two, go ahead, I dare you…… ;)
