Choco Chips Cookies With Coconut Oil 

​Eggless butter less choco chips cookies with coconut oil.

First time tried cookies with coconut oil and very happy with the taste. And rice flour made these cookies crisp and crunchy. 

Organic edible coconut oil is great for those who can’t take butter for health reasons.

I have got a recipe book with my halogen oven. Adopted this recipe from that book. Cookies taste awesome.

I have replaced butter with coconut oil. You will love the taste.

Coconut oil is high in natural saturated fats. Its not only increase the healthy cholesterol in our body, but also help to convert the bad cholesterol into good cholesterols. And it helps promote heart health and lower the risk of heart disease.

To date, there are over 1,500 studies proving coconut oil to be one of the healthiest foods on the planet. Coconut oil benefits and uses go beyond what most people realize, as coconut oil — made copra or dried coconut flesh — is a true superfood.

Coconut oil is high in natural saturated fats. Saturated fats not only increase the healthy cholesterol (known as HDL cholesterol) in your body, but also help convert the LDL “bad” cholesterol into good cholesterols. By Increasing the HDL in the body, it helps promote heart health and lower the risk of heart disease.

With so many health benefits jaggery  helps to increase the total count of haemoglobin in the blood and it is surprisingly effective as an aid for weight loss.
