The Best Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

 

 

I rarely post recipes on here but these cookies have been such a consistent hit that I thought I’d share. They are definitely an “everyday shine” kind of a thing 😉

I was searching for a recipe that was a lighter version of a regular chocolate chip cookies – but when I made these, not only do they taste super decadent but they also have that hint of coconutty flavour that gives a simple classic a bit of a twist.

This recipe was adapted from Sweet Treats.

You’ll Need:

1/2 cup coconut oil

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

3/4 cup all purpose flour

3/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

pinch of salt

3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Melt the coconut oil (I usually throw in the microwave for 20 seconds) and combine with sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla.

Preheat oven to 350

I like the combination of whole wheat and regular flour

Scoop by rounded tablespoon onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.

You’re supposed to let cool for several minutes before transferring to a cooling rack – but I can never wait that long 🙂
