Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies are dairy free and made with whole wheat flour and coconut sugar but taste just as good! Easy 20 minute recipe.


  • 1 1/4 cups (150 grams) white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup (105 grams) virgin coconut oil, at room temperature (solid)
  • 1 cup (155 grams) coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (130 grams) dark chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the coconut oil and coconut sugar until very well combined, about 2 minutes. Add the egg, yolk, and vanilla. On low speed, gradually beat in the flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Divide the dough into 1 1/2-tablespoon sized balls and drop onto prepared baking sheets.

Bake for 9 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
