Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies with Coconut Oil


serving size 22

1/2 cup (109 ml) solid not melted organic refined coconut oil on the scant side

1.5 tablespoons ground flax seeds mixed with 4.5 tablespoons water let sit for 5 mins until smooth and creamy

1/2 cup (110 g) brown sugar

1/4 cup (50 g) organic unrefined sugar fine sugar or blend to make powder

1/4 teaspoon (0.25 teaspoon) heaped fine sea salt

1/2 teaspoon (0.5 teaspoon) baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 tsp organic vanilla extract

1 1/4 cups (156.25 g) flour I use unbleached white flour

1 cup (180 g) vegan fair trade palmoil free chocolate chips and chunks

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F / 180ºc. Line a large baking sheet with parchment.
  • Add all ingredients coconut oil through vanilla extract to a stand mixer and beat until light and fluffy. Or add a bowl and beat with a hand held beater until fluffy.
  • Add 1 cup flour and mix in. Add 1/4 cup flour and mix in. Add flour 1 tbsp at a time and beat in to make a soft cookie dough. You dont want a crumbly dryish mixture, so add just enough to get to somewhere between a stiff batter and soft dough. *
  • Add the chocolate chips and fold in well. **
  • Measure dough out by heaped tablespoon or a scoop on the lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until just slightly golden.
  • Remove from oven and “cookie slam” on a solid heat proof surface for the wrinkled cookie appearance.
  • Let cool on baking sheet for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool for another 3-5 minutes. The cookies set up while they cool. Try to share with everyone. Store on the counter for the day, and in a closed container for upto 3 days (totally irrelevant information),


To make these gluten-free: Combine 3/4 cup white rice flour, 1/3 cup potato starch and 2.5 tbsp almond flour in a bowl. Or use 1 cup chickpea flour + 1/4 cup almond flour or use a gf blend of choice. Mix well. Add 1 cup of this flour blend to the wet mix at step 3 and mix in. Let it sit for 2 minutes. If the mixture is quite wet, fold in 1 tbsp flour at a time. Add some rice flour/chickpea flour if you run out of the flour mix. The mixture should be wetter than regular flour as rice flour continues to absorb more moisture as it sits. Fold in chocolate chips. Scoop and bake. The cookies are delicate when warm. Let them cool well before transferring. I prefer these with chickpea flour.

* Flours can get packed differently in storage. Lightly stir, scoop and level, to measure the flour. Depending on the flour and the measuring errors of other ingredients, you might need all or a bit less of the flour.

** If the mixture feels crumbly or too stiff when mixing in the chocolate chips, sprinkle some non dairy milk and mix in.
