Divine Coconut-PB-Choc Chip Cookies

What you need: 

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon egg replacer
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup coconut
*soymilk as needed

What you do: 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Stir sugar and peanut butter together.
Mix egg replacer with a splash of soymilk and vanilla and add to sugar-peanut butter mix.
Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl and then add to wet ingredients. If mixture is too dry, add soymilk until moist.
Place coconut on a plate. Form dough into balls and roll in coconut. Push a few chocolate chips into the top of the cookies and place on oiled baking sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes.
TIP: Chocolate chips can be stirred into the dough, but I found that pushing them into the cookies as I place them on the baking sheet was easier. Not only did it make distribution more even, I was able to avoid dozens of chocolate chips abandoned at the bottom of the dough bowl.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I got asked "No eggs...100% vegan... Really?" So I guess they were pretty good-- soft and fluffy.  Anyway, I used half brown sugar and half regular, I was low on the regular stuff.  I added some almond milk to help bind everything together and threw the chocolate chips in dough.  The dough is pretty divine on it's own.  :)

these were quite tasty, but i don't get the separate chocolate chip and coconut steps.  my dough was extremely sticky and was more on my fingers than in a little ball, so i decided to mix the chocolate chips and coconut in with the batter.  it just didn't seem necessary to me to segregate those lovelies and add more work to the agenda.

i subbed spelt flour and thought it tasted good here; i had to add more soymilk plus a tad of oil, too.  dough was way sticky.  but very, very good!

oh, and i had them the next day but didn't encounter any texture changes.  maybe uhblondie's 'fridge experiment changed their longevity.  or maybe i got lucky!

Okay, so I was a little undecided how to rate the recipe, but I decided on 4 stars. They were very good the first day, and one of my guests ate like 10 of them!! But the next day they were just hard and downright not good (and I love desserts of all kinds, so that is saying something). Maybe it is because my boyfriend put them in the fridge, but even after thawing they weren't any better. I might try them again at some point since they have so much potential, so we'll see...

I'm baking my first batch now and they seem so decadent.  I wonder how they would be if I omitted the sugar or cut it down somehow?  The peanut butter has sugar and I accidentally bought sweetened coconut.  That's a lot of sugar.  I guess I'll "suffer" through these sweeties before I experiment.  :)

Oh WOW!  These were YUMMY!  I love the fact that there is no oil or margarine.  They are so moist and absolutely delicious!  Thanks for the great recipe!

These are the most fabulous cookies! I love pb-coconut combo and just HAD to try these, except I subtracted the chocolate from the mix because I wanted to experience the whole pb-coconut fantasticness! I used spelt/brown rice flour combo and added 1 tsp oil to be saf - verrrrrrrryyyy good cookie texture!

p.s. Notaveggy_111 - Shredded unsweetened dried coconut works best in this recipe if you ask me!

Do I use dried coconut flakes, or real coconut meat?  ???
