‘Crazy Good’ Choco-Chip Bite Sizers

When they are bite sized they have less calories. Right? Hmmm, except these use just as much batter as regular cookies only baking them in a mini muffin tin makes them bite sized. Let’s just pretend that makes them less fattening, shall we?

My friend, Macki, turned me on to the idea of baking cookies in mini muffin tins. This genius concept makes even the simplest of cookie recipes taste a-mazing because the density makes them so soft and chewy in the middle. Mmmm.

The only problem with making them in muffin tins is that you have to wait until they cool allllllllllllllll the way down to remove them. This is torture to a cookie lover but it is worth it. My husband calls these ‘Crazy Good’ and everyone else who tastes them seems to agree. (Except my friend, Dana, who can’t stand coconut! Sorry, Dana!) Now for the recipe…

Crazy Good Choco-Chip Bite Sizer Recipe

Prep Time: 15 mins  Cooking Time: 10 mins (per batch)

Ingredients:
2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup almond meal (also known as almond flour)
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 sticks unsalted butter, room temp
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
2 cups chocolate chips

Chop the coconut either by hand or with a food processor until it is fine. In a medium bowl whisk together coconut, flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside. Cream butter and sugars in the electric mixer until fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs one at a time and continue to beat. Add the flour mixture 1/2 cup at a time and beat until blended. Stir in chocolate chips and refrigerate while preheating the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a mini muffin tin with cooking spray. Scoop batter into prepared tin until each cup is 3/4 full. (Don’t over do it or the cookies will sink in the middle.) Gently push cookies down into the tin and bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown on top. Remove from oven and let cool completely in the pan. Once cooled, use a butter knife to lift each bite sizer from the pan. Makes approximately 4 dozen bite sized cookies.

You can make almond flour yourself by chopping almonds in the food processor until they have a flour like consistency.
