Hope everyone had a nice weekend. I am a bit on overload these days. Between the dental convention and pilates training this weekend, I am in need of a sweet vacation. I have been wanting to go to NY for so long now, I need to just do it. Now I just need to convince my husband. Any New Yorkers have any tips to a first timer?

I’m not sure why I keep making all of these tempting treats, it’s getting a bit ridiculous, swim suit season is coming quick! It was just too hard to resist because I finally found a place to purchase Hershey cinnamon chips that I have been hunting down for the last year. My trusty Super Target down the street just started selling them. To celebrate, I just had to create a fun cookie, so here it is. Sink your teeth into these puppies!

I am so hooked on using coconut oil in place of butter for my cookies, it really gives a nice flavor especially if you are a coconut fan. These are a great cookie when you are tired of always making chocolate chip. Mmmm, what a treat, cute and bite size.

Cinnamon and White Chocolate Coconut-Oat Chippers

1 Cup softened virgin coconut oil
3/4 Cup brown sugar
3/4 Cup white granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 Cups flour
1 1/4 Cups oatmeal
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 Cups shredded sweetened coconut
1 1/2 Cups cinnamon chips (Hershey Brand is what I used)
1 1/2 Cups white chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer, cream the oil and sugars. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Add the rest of the ingredients, mix on low until just combined. With a small cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 7-9 minutes or until cooked through. If making larger cookies, bake 9-11 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
