Cinnamon and White Chocolate Coconut-Oat Chippers


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.

    Stacy will die to know that super target is carrying the cinnamon chips. These look delish. I made the strawberry cookies and ate them all up. I guess I’ll have to try these as well.

    Hi Lisa,
    It’s funny, Stacy was the one who got me hunting for those cinnamon chips with her incredible pumpkin cinnamon chip muffins! Now I’ll have to make those too. Glad you like the strawberry cookies!!

    Hey, did you get the fun surprise I left under your car door handle??? I thought you wanted that back since you “saved” it in my car!

    I made the strawberry cookies as well and they didn’t last very long. Good idea for Valentine’s day, don’t you think? Anxious to try these with cinnamon chips? Does Trader Joe’s carry them – or only at Super Target?

    What a great flavor combination! Gotta love that Target! And I love Cost Plus/World Market…I’ve found some amazing ingredients there.
    New York…I’ve got to ask my sis-in-law, she goes all the time, and will have great suggestions. I hope you go! You DO need a break!

    Yah, Thanks Kimmy, got your sweet surprise, Brady was glad to have his old hot dog back. You are such a snitch!

    Hi Bonnie,
    Glad you liked the strawberry cookies. I love those. The only place I’ve had luck with the cinnamon chips is at Super Target. I don’t think trader joes sells any sort of chocolate chips.

    Hi Grace,
    Tell me about it, those are some of my favorites too!

    Hi Catherine,
    I know, Cost Plus world market is so great. I love having one 5 minutes away! If I really plan a trip to NY, I’ll have to pick your sis in law’s brain a bit on what to do there!

    Jenny – I live in Northern NJ, so if you do decide to head to NYC for a visit, I can certainly give you some ideas on things you MUST see and do! ๐Ÿ™‚ I just love the city, we are lucky we only live about 30 minutes away.

    Those cookies look great! I haven’t found cinnamin chips, but I’ll look for them just so I can try this recipe. Is the coconut flavor strong from the oil?

    Steph says:

    These look so delicious! I’ve never heard of cinnamon chips, but they sound tasty! I’ll have to hunt some down. It’s so bizarre to me that Supertarget of all places is starting to carry a lot of the hard to find foods!

    Deborah says:

    I used to make cinnamon muffins with these chips. I haven’t done that in forever!!

    These cookies sound amazing!

    I’m going to NYC next month. It’s not my first time, but my husband’s first time, so we’ll probably hit all of the touristy places. I do know that hotels are WAY more expensive than they were last time I went, which was about 4 years ago. I’m trying for Priceline, but most list prices for hotels are over $300 a night!

    Jenny, I love the new look to your blog!

    I swear I get fatter every time I stop by your blog–no complaints, though, it’s worth it :). White chocolate chips cookies rock, and so does coconut–these are definitely going on my to-bake list!

    I’ll be sure to email you when I get things planned for sure. I’m just dreaming right now! I hope you can find the cinnamon chips, what a treat they are!

    Thanks Steph,
    I love the supertarget by my house.

    Thanks Deborah,
    I’ll have to hear all about your trip when you get back. I am so jealous!

    Thanks Nikki,
    I can’t resist a good cookie!

    Thanks Phemom!

    Thanks for stopping by Giz,
    Hope you find some recipes you’ll enjoy.

    I’ve heard Wicked is wonderful. I hope to see it someday soon.

    Thanks Camilla,
    I was ready for a little change. Hope you enjoy the cookies!

    Hi Marie,
    I hope all these treats work on him!

    Hi Recipegirl,
    Hmmmm, I’m not sure why my site would be slower, hopefully it picks up.

    Thanks Emiline,
    Wish I had more today, they are long gone.

    Hi Stacy,
    You can imagine how excited I was to find these. I feel like I checked every grocery store last year when I got your muffin recipe. Now I can make your yummy muffins!

    Hope you enjoy Carrie.

    I forgot all about my labels until I read your comment. I added them in towards the bottom left column. Enjoy!

    Virgin coconut oil?? Where do you find this and how does it change the taste of you cookies? Thanks for the information!

    Suzette says:

    Hi so I found you on a friends of a friends blog and LOVE your recipes. I’m a huge coconut oil fan and cook almost everything in it. It also works great for making things not stick. Hope you don’t mind I posted your blog onto mine I know all my fellow friend bloggers would love your recipes as well.

    Mandy says:

    My girlfriend just told me about your blog and I love it! Thanks for all the fun recipes. I had to “blog about you” on my blog, I hope you don’t mind.

    Jenny says:

    Hi Jennifer,
    The coconut oil I use leaves a mild coconut flavor in the cookies, it also gives them a great texture. I get my coconut oil at Sprouts here in AZ, but have heard that Super Walmart and Target sell it as well. Make sure it says “virgin” coconut oil. You can also order it online if you can’t find it anywhere.

    Hi Suzette and Mandy,
    Welcome, glad to have you here. Feel free to add me to your blogs. Thanks! Hope you both will find some recipes you will enjoy.
