Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies

Coconut oil is a great ingredient to bake with since you can use it as a 1:1 substitute for butter. It is an especially great choice if you're trying to cut down on dairy. For this cookie recipe, you can make it entirely dairy-free if you use semi-sweet morsels instead of milk chocolate chips.
