Why organic?

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.

Pantry Cookies

Recipe by MimiDifficulty: Easy



This soft and chewy cookie recipe uses up ingredients in your pantry. Be sure to try these next time you're wondering – what can I bake?


  • Dough
  • 1/2 cup (113 grams) organic salted butter, softened

  • 170 grams (3/4 cup) organic cane sugar

  • 21 grams (1 tablespoon) organic raw honey

  • 2 organic large eggs

  • 255 grams (2 cups) organic all purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

  • 85 grams (1 cup) organic fine shredded coconut

  • 85 grams (heaping 1/2 cup) organic roasted & salted cashews

  • Topping
  • 1 teaspoon organic cane sugar

  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • To make the dough: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter, cane sugar, and honey. Mix on low until combined and there are no chunks of butter. Add the eggs and mix just slightly.
  • In a separate bowl, add the flour, baking soda, and sea salt and whisk together. Add the flour mixture and the coconut and cashews, and mix on low until combined into a stiff dough.
  • Using your hands, form 18 balls of cookie dough and flatten them so they are 2-inches in diameter. Space them at least 1-inch apart on the cookie sheets.
  • To make the topping: In a small dish mix together the cane sugar and sea salt.
  • Bake for 11 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with the topping immediately after coming out of the oven. Let cool completely on the cookie sheets.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 7 days.


  • Gluten Free – Replace the all purpose flour with 269 grams (1 3/4 cups) organic gluten free flour blend.
  • High Altitude – Bake at 375°F for 8 minutes or until golden brown.
