Brett got me a whirly pop for Christmas. A whirly pop and a giant tub of coconut oil. Because using coconut oil is the best way to make popcorn, especially in a whirly pop. And we’ve been making popcorn almost every day since Christmas. Not even kidding, we are slightly addicted.
So I’ve had this giant tub of coconut oil and all I had made with it was popcorn. I decided it was time to put it to new use.
You’re not surprised I started with cookies are you? I started with this cookie base that I love, originally from Lizzy at Your Cup of Cake, adapted it just a bit and used coconut oil instead of butter.
Coconut oil and chunks of almond joy bars in an oatmeal cookie– a coconut lover’s heaven! The husband ooohed and ahhed over these as he ate like five.
I promise I only had one. After I ate half of the dough.
