Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies

These were a-ma-zing. Will never make another way. Ever. Will also use gluten free flour next time.


1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coconut oil, room temperature
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg, room temperature
teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and baking soda. Set aside.

In another bowl, cream together coconut oil and sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat until well combined. Gradually pour in dry ingredients, beating until well incorporated after each addition. Stir in chocolate chips.

Scoop out balls of dough onto prepared cookie sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart from one other.  I prefer to use a cookie scoop and parchment paper on my cookie sheets.

Bake for 10 minutes, or until edges are just starting to turn light brown. Let cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Note: The coconut oil is sweet, so sugar is reduced. I think mine were a little too sweet, and will probably reduce granulated sugar and brown sugar a smidge next time.
