Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

This weekend was intense. And in tents. (Sorry, I had to)

Three teachers and a bunch of parents took about 35 sixth graders camping at Mt. Lassen and it was exhausting but so much fun.  I hadn’t camped since 2008 so it was really nice to sleep outside again under beautiful jeffrey pines.

We were only gone 36 hours but we packed a lot into that time, and the highlight was a hike to Bumpass Hell, where there are pots of boiling mud.  The entire place reeks of sulfur and it was hot and shade-less, but so cool to see.

I made these cookies to take along on the trip and was grateful to have them in the car, on the trail, and around the campfire (yeah, I kinda ate too many cookies this weekend).  It’s a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe, but uses coconut butter (NOT coconut oil!), sweetened shredded coconut, and milk chocolate chips.

    Oh man, camping with kids can be exhausting–lots of fun too, but exhausting. I’m sure they loved the name Bumpass Hell. That kind of humor is right up a 6th grader’s alley.

    You’re making me want to plan a camping trip!
