Step 6: Add in coconut flakes until well distributed.
Step 7: After, add the chocolate chips. Again mix until well distributed.
Step 8: Use Step 3 Cookie Scoop or 3/4 amount of an ice cream scoop for size. Spacing 2.5 – 3 inches apart. And last *Lightly Sprinkle with Coarse Salt.
Step 9: Bake for 11 mins or until just lightly golden. The cookie should and will appear “undone”. It will set at cooling.
Step 10: Keep cookies on baking sheets for 5-7 mins then transfer to a cooling rack. This will avoid cooling too soon, resulting in a hard crispy base.
Step 11: When cookies have cooled, store in an airtight container.
Note about Sodium:
Eliminate this step if there are sodium restrictions to consider. Or choose and distinguish 1 sheet for salted & one for unsalted. Cool and store separately. You will notice after baking, they will look slightly different.
