Oh people, I have met my batch-made-in-heaven cookie. It's called a carrot oatmeal cookie and uses coconut oil.
That's the secret weapon ingredient.
And not just any coconut oil, fragrant coconut oil, which makes it smell delicious and taste delicious.
These were part of the baking my sister did for my visit. The recipe is from the lovely 101 Cookbooks. The taste is simply addictive. Everyone thought so, which is why they didn't make it to sunset on the second day.
A great bonus to making these is the coconut oil. My sister kept using it on her arms and hands as a moisturizer. It's like being in a tropical paradise in the middle of winter.
