Number of Servings: 50

Ingredients

    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 cup sugar
    1/3 cup coconut oil
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    3/4 cups hot water, almost boiling, divided
    1 cup packaged shredded coconut, unsweetened

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. In another large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat sugar with oil and vanilla until well-blended. add half of flour mixture and half of water to sugar mixture; beat until smoth. Ad coconut, remaining water and remaining flour mixture; beat until well-combined (dough might be a little stiff and sticky).

Scoop scant tablespoons of dough and roll into balls; place on prepared cookie sheets, leaving about 1 1/2 to 2-inches between each cookie. When all 50 cookies are made, flatten each ball into a 2-inch disk with the back of a wet spoon or fork.

Bake until done, about 8 to 10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on cookie sheets for about 2 minutes and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Yields 1 cookie per serving.

Notes:
You can melt the coconut oil over a low heat to make it easier to combine with the sugar, if desired.
