Favorite Cookie Recipe…

I showed our family favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe on my stories and had such a good response and interest I decided I would officially document them on my blog. This recipe has been in my family for years! Depending on my mood, I either add in banana or coconut as the secret ingredient! Trust me–it makes the cookies! I personally love the coconut but Amy loves the banana. Can’t go wrong either way!


2 cups shortening

1 ½ cups brown sugar

1 ½ cups white sugar

4 eggs

2 tsp vanilla

2 tsp salt

2 tsp baking soda, in 2 T warm water

1 cup flaked or shredded coconut (or replace with a banana)

1 package chocolate chips (I use Guittard)

4 cups oatmeal

3 cups flour

Mix well and drop with this scooper onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or just until they start to brown.

  1. I made these with whole wheat flour and vegetable oil and they turned out okay. After making 2 dozen cookies, I used rest to make granola bars which turned out fantastic.
