A ‘new fashioned’ twist on the classic, old fashioned chewy chocolate chip cookies we grew up on – fresh off the baking sheet!

These soft and chewy cookies with crisp edges are sure to satisfy any sweet cravings. These just go to prove that healthier options don’t have to taste healthier. They can taste just as good – if not better! You’ll get a subtle hint of coconut from the coconut oil, but you can also substitute with refined coconut oil that doesn’t have the coconut flavor. Or you can use regular unsalted butter of ghee if that’s more your thing. So grab your glass of almond milk and show me your best cookie dip.

How to make these Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Be sure to line your baking tray so they don’t stick – These silicone baking mats are a great reusable alternative to parchment paper.
  • Refined sugar alternative – Coconut sugar is a plant based, natural sweetener, and makes a great alternative to refined sugar in baking. It’s just as sweet so you can replace sugar in any recipe 1:1. It also has a beautiful caramelized brown sugar flavour. Plus it’s lower on the glycemic index, meaning that it will help keep those blood sugar levels in check!
  • Meal prep friendly! – Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the fridge for up to 5 days, or in a resealable freezer bag in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a medium bowl, with a hand-held electric mixer, beat the coconut sugar with the coconut oil for 2 minutes on medium speed. Scrape down the sides, add the vanilla and egg, and beat for 30 seconds.
  • Add the coconut oil mixture to the flour mixture and stir with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon until well combined and no flour is visible. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Roll about 1½ tablespoons of the mixture at a time into balls. Place them about 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden. Transfer the cookies to a rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the fridge for up to 5 days, or in a resealable freezer bag in the freezer for up to 1 month.
