Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies with Toffee are thick and chewy and taste just like bakery style chocolate chip cookies. This coconut oil cookie recipe will be your new favorite!
I typically only make cookies around the holidays. But my son is coming home from college soon there is no better way to welcome him back than with a big plate of Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies. Of course, we will serve the Perfect Grilled Steak and potatoes for dinner, but he can dig into these chocolate chip cookies with toffee right away and know that we are glad he's home.
Why use coconut oil in cookies?
I have heard that coconut oil has many health benefits and is a great butter or shortening replacement when cooking. While this may be true, coconut oil is excellent to use in baking and really great in chocolate chip cookies.
After using coconut oil to make these cookies, I might never use butter in my chocolate chip cookies again. The texture was fabulous. I thought the cookies had a faint coconut scent however no one else in my family noticed a coconut taste unless I mentioned it to them first. When I bit into the cookie, I loved the crumbly outside and chewy inside. I will definitely try coconut oil in some of my other cookie recipes.
I'm not sure there are any health benefits gained from eating these rich, sugary cookies; however, the oil sure made my cookies taste yummy.

I have never used coconut oil in baking. Definitely would love to try. These look great!
These looks delish! Do you mind telling me where you buy your toffee bits? I look for them in my parts all the time, but can never find them. Living in South Jersey is so much like living in the sticks. Well, I guess I do live in the sticks. Hee.
I am going to have to try some coconut oil now. These look so tempting!
I guess I will have to break down and try the coconut oil. I have heard about it a lot but just never have given it a try...you've convinced me!
I use coconut oil a fair bit for things now, but I haven't tried it in regular chocolate chip cookies. I may have to now!
those cookies look delicious!! I love the addition of toffee, it just puts them over the top!!
I'm in the Collingswood area of South Jersey.
I can't wait to try these!

You've made me want to try out coconut oil and even if there is a faint taste of coconut, that's fine by me.
Lisa, your cookies look so delicious! I will definitely buy some coconut oil and give these a try. Chocolate chips are my favorite and the toffee sounds like the perfect extra something!
