Expert Tips

You can purchase coconut oil either unrefined or refined. Either will work well in this recipe. Unrefined coconut oil will give your cookies a slight coconut flavor whereas refined will not. Just be sure to measure it in its melted (liquid) form.

Cranberries or other dried fruits can be substituted for the golden raisins.
