Soft, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 2 cups flour (I used whole wheat the first time and a gf all purpose blend the second time - both with great results)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup cane sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup + 1 tbsp coconut oil (room temperature)
  • ½ cup + 1 tbsp soy milk (or your choice alt milk or water)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Mix the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt) in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. In a larger bowl, combine the sugar, oil, vanilla and milk, stirring until well combined.
  3. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, and stir until the dry ingredients have been mixed into the wet mixture.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and stir until mixed well.
  5. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap (or a reusable plastic lid) and leave to chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
  6. When preparing to bake, preheat the oven to 180 C and remove the dough from the fridge.
  7. Drop 1 tbsp scoops of cookie dough onto a lined baking sheet, spacing the cookies 2 inches apart (you'll be able to fit appx 10 cookies on a sheet).
  8. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 10-12 minutes (longer if you like crunchy cookies).
  9. Let cool before removing the cookies from the baking sheet and moving them to a cooling rack.
  10. Whatever you don't eat can be stored in the fridge in a closed container once fully cooled, or similarly frozen.
Alternative baking instructions:
1. To create a deep-dish cookie, press the dough into a tart pan or other similarly shallow baking pan (preferably one with a separate panel for the bottom to allow you to push the cookie up out of the pan).
2. Bake for 14 minutes, or until a toothpick poked into the middle of the cookie comes out clean.
3. Let sit to cool thoroughly before removing the cookie from the pan. Use a knife to loosen the bottom of the pan from the cookie if it has become baked-in.
4. Enjoy with a scoop of icecream or some fresh fruits.
