Kiera’s Kitchen // Episode 1 // Cookies

Recently I’ve heard a lot of complaints about the cooking show network. As a society we’ve become so obsessed with reality TV, all that’s left is a handful of sweaty chefs competing for ten thousand dollars. Well if you want to actually learn how to make a good old fashion batch of cookies, “Kiera’s Kitchen” has got your back! Kiera, one of our contributing editors, teamed up with the infamous Matt Volz to bring us the pilot episode of Kiera’s Kitchen, “Cookies.” Watch below, and feel free to cook alongside us! 

1 1/4 cup quick oats
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup melted coconut oil
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup shredded coconut (sweetened is fine)
1/2-1 cup of chocolate chips
1/2-1 cup nuts of choice (optional)
2 teaspoons almond milk (or regular, soy, coconut)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In large bowl whisk together flour, oats, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
In separate bowl beat together melted coconut oil and brown sugar until smooth. Add in egg, milk and vanilla; beat again for 2 minutes or until smooth.
Add in flour & oat mixture to the wet ingredients; mixing until well combined. Slowly add in coconut and chocolate chunks.
Drop dough with cookie scoop or by large rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges just being to turn a golden brown. Do not over bake; we don’t want crispy cookies! Remove from oven and let cool a few minutes on baking sheet. Transfer to wire rack to finish cooling. Makes 2 dozen
