Coconut Oil Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Coconut Oil Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Hello!!! Happy Valentine’s Day eve, ha… I hope y’all are having a great week so far! We spent this past weekend celebrating my sweet mama’s birthday, hiking around the Cleveland Metroparks, eating a ton of delicious food and hanging out together around the ever-lit fire-pit in my family’s backyard! I made her a blueberry coffee cake and chocolate covered strawberries, of course, which I will share the recipe for on here shortly as well =)

For now, I thought I would share a simple and delicious chocolate chip cookie recipe, perfect to bake for your sweethearts as a little treat tomorrow! This recipe comes together very quickly in just one bowl, it’s incredibly simple and delicious! It makes 12 – 14 thick cookies.

You will need…

  • 2/3 cup coconut oil, softened but not melted
  • 2/3 cup raw cane sugar
  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar (can use brown or date sugar too)
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk (I prefer to use homemade oat milk)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2.5 cups AP flour (spelt, whole wheat or oat work too. I prefer to use organic)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 12oz non-dairy dark chocolate, cut into small pieces

To make…

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a standard baking sheet with parchment paper. Start by roughly chopping your chocolate into dime-sized chunks and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine both sugars and coconut oil and beat with a wooden spoon until thick, creamy and glossy. Add in vanilla extract and mix until combined. Stir in the plant-based milk until completely combined.

Sift flour, baking soda, powder and salt over the bowl. With your wooden spoon, mix dough until just combined, it will be very thick. Stir in chocolate chunks, leaving some out to push into the tops before baking.

Scoop 2-3 tablespoon size balls and place evenly on your prepared baking sheet. Press the reserved chocolate pieces into the tops of the dough balls.

Bake at 350 for 12 minutes – rotating the tray halfway through.

Remove from oven and let cool slightly before serving.

Enjoy!!! =)
