Vegan MoFo, Day 9

Today’s “something new” for the 9th day of Vegan MoFo comes in the form of a cookie and recipe! A lot of people ask me how I come up with my recipes or where I get them from. It usually starts with just one ingredient. For example, I wanted to make cookies but all I had on hand was coconut and chocolate. So, what I do is search Pinterest and Instagram obsessively with key terms “vegan chocolate coconut” and that usually produces huuuuuge amount of results. From there, I see what I’d like to make based on which got the best comments and reviews, as well as if I have all of the ingredients on hand. Often times, though, I don’t follow a recipe exactly and make several modifications. This then becomes a recipe I share with you all. Here, you have Chocolate Chocolate Coconut Granola Cookies. These were divine!  I served with the cookie batter and some So Delicious Vanilla Bean ice cream with chocolate syrup and coconut chips. Yum!
