These butterless cookies are thick and fluffy and loaded with tons of chocolate chips perfect for the times when you are out of butter.


1/2 cup coconut oil not melted

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add coconut oil and both sugars to a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Mix until combined, 1-2 minutes.
  • Add in vanilla and egg. Mix until combined. Make sure to scrap the sides of the bowl throughout.
  • Meanwhile add flour, baking soda and salt to a medium bowl. Whisk to combine.
  • Slowly add in the dry ingredients to the wet in two parts.
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Portion out 12 cookies and place them on a plate. The dough can be chilled for an hour or two if you prefer a thicker cookie. They can also go straight into the oven and are just a tad thinner if you choose not to chill the dough.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Allow cookies to cool for a couple of minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Store cooled baked cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for 3-5 days or freeze for up to 3-4 months.
