  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, mix coconut oil, granulated sugar and brown sugar until well mixed. Stir in almond milk and vanilla.
  • 2
    Stir in flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt until dough forms. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop dough by slightly rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

    Bake 11 to 14 minutes or until edges are light brown and tops look set. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets. Remove to cooling rack; cool completely. Store in tightly covered container.

Expert Tips

  • Melt solid coconut oil in a glass measuring cup in 10-second bursts in the microwave.
  • The granule size of organic sugar can really vary depending on the producer. Be sure to use a fine crystal sugar for the cookies, rather than turbinado or other raw sugars, for the best texture in the cookies. Coarse crystal sugars won’t dissolve as easily in the dough.
  • Curious about vegan chocolate? While cocoa beans come from a plant and are inherently vegan, as they are processed into commercial chocolate other ingredients can be added that are not. Look for the high-quality chocolate that is produced with only cocoa butter and sugar (sometimes lecithin and vanilla are added—both are okay.) There are also milk chocolates that are made with non-dairy substitutes like almond or rice milk.
