I feel kind of bad on day 2 of the challenge. I seem to be the queen of substitutions (that’s not new) but I really wanted cookies so I made theseÂ Crazy Coconut Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies from The Lunch Box Bunch. Why do I feel bad for making cookies? Well, the whole point of them is to use coconut palm sugar. But I really was jonesing for cookies last night. And out of my 12+ types of sugar in the house I don’t have any coconut palm sugar. Go figure.
I substituted in 100% granulated sugar, but I should have done a 50/50 with brown sugar. Not that the cookies didn’t turn out excellent, because they did. However, they were pretty crispy and to make them a little different I think the brown sugar could have picked up a bit of slack where the palm sugar would have shined. But my craving is totally taken care of, which is always a good thing.
