Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies - Recipe and Product Review

Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil

When I was asked to sample and review Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil, I knew a special recipe had to be created.  Something everyone would enjoy, something for the holiday season, something new and something easy.

These cookies hold their shape, slightly crunchy on the outside with a moist and crumbly interior that melts in your mouth.  Mini muffins were tried and they held up to the test of the cookies as well as the baking time.

Notes:


  • These cookies and muffins disappear so quickly that I'm not sure which is faster - making or eating them!
  • These are wonderful straight from the freezer.
  • I used a teaspoon to measure the size for the cookies and a small muffin pan for the muffins.

You know how you have certain recipes that are so good you want to share them but don't because they are just that good?  You have the best intentions of sharing but somehow there's never any left over to share - that's how these cookies and muffins are.

Tropical Traditions has a trusted website that makes shopping for their products easy.  The gold label coconut oil was delicious in baked goods making them crispy on the outside and moist on the inside.  It was also delicious in our homemade vegan butter, which uses the coconut oil in its raw form.
