Ingredients

1 cup whole-wheat flour
or white whole wheat, or whole wheat pastry
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch salt
*
¼ cup olive oil
or canola oil, or walnut, grape seed oil
¼ cup peanut butter
natural and creamy
¼ cup orange juice
1 large eggs
cup brown sugar
packed
*
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup coconut, shredded (desiccated)
sweetened
*
½ cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet)
*

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Place a piece of parchment paper on each baking sheet. You probably need two baking sheets.

In a large bowl, add the whole wheat flour, baking soda, and salt, and mix well.

In a medium bowl, add the oil, peanut butter, orange juice, egg, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Whisk until well combined.

Pour the oil mixture into the flour mixture, and stir with a wooden spatula until moistened.

Stir in coconut flakes and chocolate chips until evenly distributed and incorporated.

Drop by tablespoonful onto prepared baking sheet.

Flatten the cookies with the back of a fork or your fingers; if it gets too sticky, wash and the fork or your hands, and repeat until all the dough is finished.

Bake one sheet at a time for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies start to become golden and brown, and the bottom is browned.

Remove from the oven and let cookies cool on a sheet on a wire rack for about 5 minutes.

Transfer the cookies onto the wire rack, and cool completely.

Store the cookies in an air-tight container for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to at least 1 month.

Coconut, chocolate chips, and peanut butter! Boy, oh boy, they made these cookies ultimately delicious. These cookies were also packed with health benefits because of whole wheat flour and olive oil. Nutty, tangy, chocolaty... and melt in your mouth. They not only just please your palate and craving, but also good for you :)
