Coconut Lime Cookies

So after cracking open my own coconut, I decided I would use it to make something yummy. And on our counter sat a plethora of limes. So coconut lime cookies were born!

*original recipe found on Peas and Thank You

Coconut Lime Cookies
1 cup oats
3/4 cup wheat flour
1/4 cup white flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 cup shredded coconut
zest of 1 lime
1/3 cup honey or agave
1/4 cup milk
3 T. lime juice
1/4 c. applesauce
1 t. vanilla
1/3 cup chocolate chips
So first thing to do is shred the fresh coconut. You only need about 1/2 cup.

Then in one bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: oats, flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, baking powder and coconut. Then zest your lime into the bowl.

Next in a separate bowl mix together the wet ingredients: honey, milk, lime juice, applesauce and vanilla.

Now mix the two bowls together. Once mixed, fold in the chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 11-13 minutes.

They come out a bit flat, I think because of some reaction with the baking powder/baking soda and the lime juice. But they sure taste good!

And it wouldn’t hurt to listen to this song while baking these cookies!
Hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday!
