Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies

And today we’ve got a BONUS cookie in the Christmas cookie series. These seemingly “regular” chocolate chip cookies come with a twist — replacing coconut oil for part of the butter! These cookies are incredible — one of my favorites I’ve shared to date. The coconut oil gives them an incredible depth of flavor (while also adding in a few health benefits!), there are two kinds of chocolate, and they’re overall pretty simple to make. Plus, I’m sharing a couple of “secrets” to making these cookies have the perfect texture!

Over the next few days, I’ll be sharing some fun appetizers for NYE and after that, we’ve got a whole slew of healthy meals, sides, (and even a couple of healthy desserts) coming your way in January.  Don’t miss out! 🙂

    I made these, and they were amazing! I let them chill for awhile longer, so bake time was more liker 12-15 minutes. I added caramel, shredded coconut, and white chocolate chips. They were so good!

    Love this recipe! Just added a bit more pink salt (as I like my choc chip cookies a little salty). Definitely bookmarking this one, thanks a bunch!!!

  3. just finished folding in the chocolate, & chopped pecan. I did cut down on the sugar a bit. they are now in the fridge & I will probably not make them ’til tomorrow. After incorporating everything the dough gets so ‘tough’, I don’t know a better way to describe it. makes it difficult to fold in the chips. it does seem pliable, & I look forward to making them tomorrow. it really took little time to make… & no mixer is a PLUS!

  4. I’ve made these and they are brilliant, but could I make the dough and leave it in the fridge for 3 nights before cooking? I don’t have room in the freezer!

    1. Thanks Rhia! Unfortunately (in my experience) the dough tends to harden a bit and get dry if it’s chilled longer than a few hours.

      The little extra touches in this recipe — such as making dough balls higher than they are taller, chilling dough, adding cornstarch, using coconut oil — add up to a big difference. I also appreciated the instruction to “undercook” them. It all added up to the best cookies I’ve made. I think they’d be even better with chopped pecans or walnuts.

      1. Thanks so much for your comment Angela! I’m so happy you enjoyed this recipe! They would be delicious with pecans or walnuts! 🙂

    I made these exactly how you said to with the exception that I only had salted butter on hand. They came out amazing!!! I don’t recall ever using corn starch in a cookie recipe, so that was new to me. I love using coconut oil when baking anything with chocolate. I feel like they really complement each other. Thank you for sharing this recipe; this one is a keeper!

    1. I couldn’t agree more! Chocolate and coconut oil are a power combo! I’m so happy you loved this recipe! Thanks so much for your comment Leslie! 🙂

    1. I would not recommend an egg substitute in these cookies, but haven’t personally tried it so I can’t say for sure

    I’ve made these many, many times – and every time they are devoured and someone asks for the recipe. They are so good!

    I found this recipe by chance, as I only had 1 stick of butter but lots of coconut oil! My daughter and I decided to give it a try– hands down a new family fav! My nephews can’t stop talking about how delicious the cookies are! So, for family dinner tomorrow, I am making these again! I also took these cookies to a BBQ a few weeks ago and they were all devoured! We look forward to using more of your recipes!

    Excellent recipe! A little sweet but I added 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts and 1/4 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes and baked the for 14 minutes.
