'Healthy' Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been craving peanut butter and coconut lately (CRAVING)!!!  So, last night I decided to make some cookies!!  I found a great recipe here and changed it up a little bit.  Here is my cookie recipe.

'Healthy' Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup crunchy peanut butter (no sugar added)
2 tbsp honey
1 whole egg, or a flax eggpinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 bar Ghiradelli 86% cacao dark chocolate bar, broken into pieces

Preheat oven to 350F. In a medium bowl, mix together the first five ingredients until a smooth batter forms, then gently fold in the shredded coconut and chocolate chips.

Using a teaspoon, drop the batter onto a baking sheet coated with non-stick spray.

Bake for 9-10 minutes at 350F, rotating the pan after 5 minutes, until cookies are golden brown around the edges. Allow to cool on the pan for 10 minutes.

Try not to eat them all at once :)
