Coconut chocolate chip cookies

1/2 cup coconut oil
1 cup + 1 TBS brown sugar, packed
2 eggs {at room temperature}
1 TBS. pure vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
12 oz. semisweet chocolate chips 
1 1/2-2 cups shredded coconut {optional- still amazing without it!} 
 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Spray a cookie sheet, or line with a silpat.  

2.  In a mixing bowl, use a mixer to beat the  coconut oil and brown sugar.  Add in the eggs and beat until fluffy.  Add in the vanilla extract. 

3.  In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder with whisk.  Mix the flour mixture into the coconut oil mixture a little bit at a time with a wooden spoon until all the flour is incorporated.  Add in the chocolate chips + coconut and mix well.  
4.  Drop by small rounded spoons onto prepared baking sheets. {I used a small cookie scoop from crate & barrel. perfect tool!} Bake for about 8 - 9 minutes or until slightly browned around the edges. They will be really soft and chewy, with a slightly crispy edge.. perfect! Let them rest on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before removing to rack to cool completely.  ENJOY!
