  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted (measure in solid form)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar (or light brown)
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 3 cups white all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt (or regular salt)
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips (or susbtitute your favorite chips for cookies: semi-sweet, milk, additional dark, etc.)
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (or susbtitute your favorite chips for cookies: semi-sweet, milk, additional dark, etc.)


  • In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the coconut oil and butter and whisk together. Let mixture cool to room temperature before adding additional ingredients. This is important so you don't "cook" the sugars/eggs.
  • Add in the brown and white sugar and mix until combined. Add in the vanilla and eggs and mix until smooth.
  • Make sure to spoon the flour into a measuring cup and level the measurement to get the right amount of flour. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cornstarch. 
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. Cover the dough and chill for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Roll cookie dough balls higher instead of wider -- about 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of dough per cookie. Place on a sheet pan lined with parchment or a Silpat liner. Bake 8-10 minutes or until very lightly browned around the edges or no longer glossy on top. 
  • Remove from the oven and (if desired) press in a few chocolate chips in the tops of the cookies. Let cool on a wire rack.
