I’d like to say I made these chocolate chip cookies dairy free for health reasons but that was more of a bonus.   Sometimes you just really don’t want to wait for butter to come to room temperature… when you need a cookie you need a cookie.  That’s where coconut oil steps- a quick zap to melt it down and it’s ready for cookie making.  Throw in dairy free chips (they taste the same) and you are well on your way to a classic, moist and delicious chocolate chip cook.

 

You’ll need:

  • 0.75 cup coconut oil, liquid
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs (ideally at room temp)
  • 0.75 cup sugar
  • 0.75 cups brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup dairy free chocolate chips

To Make:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  In large bowl combine oil, vanilla, eggs and sugar.
  2. Sift in flour, baking soda and salt and stir until just combined.  Fold in chocolate chips.
  3. Scoop two tablespoons of batter at a time onto parchment lined baking sheet an inch or so apart.
  4. Baking for 10 minutes, let cool a few minutes before moving to wire rack to cool completely.  Keeps well in air tight container for several days.
