Crazy Good Choco Chip Bite Sizers

Who doesn’t love cookies? Especially when they’re in a muffin tin!! Why in a muffin tin? Rebecca from Cooking With My Kid says 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.  EXCELLENT!! That’s my family’s favorite way to eat them, no hard crunchy cookies here folks only the softest will do for us 😉 Here is her recipe but feel free to use your own as well!

Crazy Good Choco-Chip Bite Sizer Recipe

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

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.


Now for those of you who are going, aw man those sounded good until the almond & coconut part (like me, lol). Not a huge coconut fan what can I say. You can use ANY COOKIE RECIPE for this!! Standard chocolate chip, sugar cookies, from a tube or from scratch you name it and you can bake it! So use whatever recipe you like best and ENJOY the soft yummy goodness of cookies today!!
