Cookie Week: Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten & Dairy Free)

Two years ago I shared the Nestle Tollhouse recipe for chocolate chip cookies.
Last year I tweaked it a bit to make the recipe gluten free.
This year I strait up made my own recipe as I went along!
I had planned on them being GF/DF chocolate chip cookies, but because of the coconut flour and oil they have a coconut flavor to a great way!
Here is my recipe for Coconut Chocolate Chip cookies:
3 cups coconut flour
1 1/2 cups almond flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 cup coconut oil (extra virgin)
1 1/2 cups raw sugar
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 large eggs
4 cups Enjoy life Chocolate Chips (dairy and soy free)
1 cup chopped nuts (optional, I did not use nuts in mine)

PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat coconut oil, raw sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate and nuts. Roll into small balls and place on cookie sheet. Press each ball down a bit and the shape does NOT change much during baking and you do not want raw centers. ;)

BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Place on wire racks to cool completely.

*This is a double batch, so you can cut it in half if you are looking to make less cookies. (Made 60 cookies)
