  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 3/4 cup flaked coconut plus 2 tablespoons, divided

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream coconut oil and sugars on high speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add the egg, vanilla extract, and coconut extract. Mix well. With the mixer on low, slowly add in the flour mixture. Mix until combined, the dough will be crumbly. Stir in the 3/4 cup coconut.
