Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies | the BEST chocolate chip cookies I've ever had! #SundaySupper

I have tried many different chocolate chip cookie recipes  in my day.  There was a fantastic recipe I used to make when I was a kid,  and then my grandma’s recipe, plus many others in between.  There were pros and cons to each recipe, but in the end they were chocolate chip cookies and therefore delicious, right?  Then one day we had our real estate agent, and dear friend, over for a visit.  She generously brought us an oven mitt, a bag of chocolate chips and a recipe.  The recipe was for these Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies, which ended up being the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever had in my life!

I realize it is a bold statement to say that these Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies are the best chocolate chip cookies ever, but those are the exact words I said with each bite of these tasty little cookies.  Like I said, all chocolate chip cookies are tasty, but these Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies are definitely something special.   Perhaps it is because of the coconut oil, the combination of sugars, the perfect chocolate chip to cookie ratio or simply just baking them just to the point of chewy perfection.  I have been too excited to share this recipe with you to determine what makes them so wonderful, so we will just stick with the simple fact that they just are  🙂
