Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Everyone in my family was fighting over who got to eat the last cookie! These coconut oil chocolate chip cookies have sweet notes of vanilla and coconut, chewy edges,  gooey centers, and lots of chocolate.

I’ve been on another chocolate chip cookie kick lately. It happens to me a few times a year, and the only thing coming out of my kitchen for weeks will be lots and lots of chocolate chip cookies. So far, my family doesn’t seem to have any complaints. I guess that means it’s okay to keep going, right?! These coconut oil chocolate chip cookies were fun, because they taste a little different than the usual CCC recipes I test. The coconut oil gives them a sweet coconut flavor and great crispy edges!

A FEW THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT THIS RECIPE:

  • The coconut oil must be room temperature, NOT melted at all.
  • I found that these cookies burn quickly once they reach golden, brown. Keep a careful eye on the first batch you bake, so you’ll know exactly how long it takes for your oven to get them just right.
  • Some cookies made with coconut oil don’t really taste like coconut (like the cookies I made back in 2015). These aren’t those. They don’t overwhelmingly taste like coconut, but the flavor is definitely there. Just a heads up 😋.
  • Add more flour a little bit at a time if the dough is too sticky. Don’t be scared to add up to an additional 1/2 cup!

Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies

Everyone in my family was fighting over who got to eat the last cookie! These coconut oil chocolate chip cookies have sweet notes of vanilla and coconut, chewy edges,  gooey centers, and lots of chocolate.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup coconut oil, room temp (not melted)
  • 1 and ¼ cups brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 and ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. Whisk together the coconut oil and brown sugar until combined.
  3. Whisk in the milk and the egg.
  4. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix with a wooden spoon until dough forms.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  6. Scoop 3 tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball (if you can't roll the dough at this point, you need to add a little more flour to the dough). Place dough about 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 8-9 minutes until the edges are golden brown and the centers are no longer wet looking. Let cool on the baking sheet.
