Coconut Oil Cranberries Cookies
I am ushering in the New Year with an ingredient I am not familiar with, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. This is the first time I am baking with Coconut oil. I am using #Ayambrand Organic Virgin Coconut Oil for this cookie recipe. The smell of coconut oil fills the kitchen and the taste of the cookie is heavenly and coconutty. I don't like soft cookies so I bake a little longer for a crispier cookie.
Coconut oil Cranberries Cookies
200 gms self raising flour
125 gms Ayambrand Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
50 gms dried cranberries
50 gms chopped walnuts
40 gms caster sugar
40 gms brown sugar
Sift flour and leave aside for later use.
Place coconut oil and sugars in a mixing bowl and beat till creamy.
Add in the egg and continue to beat till combined.
Slowly add in flour, walnuts and cranberries alternately till all the ingredients are well combined.
Preheat oven at 160°.
Line a tray and scoop mixture onto tray using a small ice cream scoop.
Flatten the dough for a crispier cookie.
Place more cranberries on top of dough if desired.
Bake for 20 - 25 mins till golden brown, depending on your oven temperature.
Let cookies cool on tray for 5 minutes before removing.
Cool cookies before storing in containers.
These cookies bake with coconut oil will filled your kitchen with the aromatic smell of coconut when it's baking in the oven. Bite into a piece of coconutty heavenly cookie that is absolutely different from cookies bake with butter.
