The taste profile of coconut oil is light and sweet, with subtle hints of coconut. When used in baked goods, such as this Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies with Coconut Oil recipe, there is a hint of coconut, but for the most part, it’s hard to detect. Semi-sweet and milk chocolate morsels can be substituted very easily. See step-by-step photos on the Nestlé Kitchens blog.

Review This Recipe
I made these into a fancier cookie by adding 2/3 cup of oats, 1/2 cup of toffee bits and 1/2 cup of toasted walnuts and 1/2 cup of dried sour cherries.The dough is a great basic one and is easy to work with.
Very cool and tasty. My mom made them and we ate them really quick
