1 hour Prep: 15 mins Cook: 15 mins Resting Time: 30 mins
Serves 14

Soft on the inside, lightly crispy on the outside, these chocolate chip cookies are decadent, super easy to prepare and utterly addictive!


  • ¼ cup (50g) coconut oil , melted
  • ¼ cup (50g) organic cane sugar
  • ¼ cup (50g) brown sugar
  • ¼ cup unsweetened plant based milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cup + 2 tbsp (170g) all-purpose flour (see notes)
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¾ cup (120g) chocolate (see notes)


  1. Step 1

    In a large bowl, whisk together until homogeneous the melted coconut oil, cane sugar, brown sugar, plant based milk, and vanilla extract.

  2. Step 2

    Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt. Incorporate using a silicone spatula until there are no white flour streaks left.

  3. Step 3

    Fold in the chocolate.

  4. Step 4

    Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 24 hours. If you refrigerate your cookies for over 2 hours, let them rest at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes to make the dough more scoopable.

  5. Step 5

    Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  6. Step 6

    Scoop about 2 tablespoons of cookie dough and place onto the baking sheet, leaving a few centimetres of space around each cookie (they won't spread too much). I like to use my hands to help keep the dough together whenever it's crumbling.

  7. Step 7

    Bake for 11 to 13 minutes or until puffed up and golden brown around the edges.

  8. Step 8

    Let cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before enjoying.

  9. Step 9

    Once completely cool, transfer to an airtight container and keep at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Common Questions & Swaps

  • Use refined or extra virgin coconut oil in this recipe.
  • You can swap the coconut oil with unsalted vegan butter.
  • Feel free to substitute the organic cane sugar with granulated sugar.
  • Can I use another type of sugar instead of brown? I have successfully made this recipe with coconut sugar as well.
  • Can I use coconut milk from a can as my plant based milk? I would suggest to stick with unsweetened plant based milks from a carton such as soy, oat, cashew, or almond.
  • Can I replace the all-purpose flour with another kind of flour? My personal favorite variation of this recipe is using half all-purpose, half whole-wheat flour. I find that yields a cookie with a little more chewiness, but you can stick with 100% all-purpose or 100% whole wheat. I have not tested this recipe with gluten-free flour yet.
  • For the chocolate in this recipe:
    • I love to do a triple chocolate mix when I can so 1/3 chopped dark chocolate (over 70%), 1/3 semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped vegan milk chocolate, 1/3 vegan white chocolate chips.
    • Another favorite mix of mine is 1/2 chopped dark chocolate, 1/2 semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped vegan milk chocolate.
