Chocolate Chip Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

2 cups whole white wheat flour or whole pastry flour (it is not white flour so don't be fooled - you can find it in the bulk section at your health food store)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder (aluminum free)
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. powdered vanilla
1/2 cup whole grain oatmeal
1/2 cup macaroon style coconut (macaroon style is a thinner shave of coconut)
1 cup sucanat
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 eggs
1/4 cup raisins, chopped up
2/3 cup grain sweetened chocolate chips, slightly chopped (you can also find these in the bulk section at your local health food store)

Blend flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, vanilla, coconut and oatmeal. In a separate bowl mix the sucanant, coconut oil and eggs. Gradually mix in the flour mixture until completely combined. Add the raisins and chocolate chips.

Bake at 375 degrees for 9 minutes. Don't over bake.

These power packed cookies are loaded with healthy goodness! They work well for an energy snack.
