  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Hershey's)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon coffee, optional
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • coarse sea salt, for sprinkling


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cooled coconut oil, brown sugar, egg, vanilla and coffee (if using) until creamy and smooth; about 1-2 minutes. 
  3. Add in flour mixture and incorporate until well combined. Fold in chocolate chips. 
  4. Roll into small dough balls or use a small cookie scoop to drop on a baking sheet and flatten slightly with the palm of your hand. 
  5. Bake 8-10 minutes. I like to take mine out at 9 minutes so they remain soft. Sprinkle with sea salt immediately. 
  6. Cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes then transfer to wire rack to finish cooling. Makes about 16 cookies.

Recipe Notes

TO MAKE GLUTEN FREE: I recommend using quinoa flour.

TO MAKE VEGAN: I suspect you can sub a flax egg for the egg in this recipe, but have not tested it. Please let me know if you do.

Instead of chocolate chips, you can chop up 3.5 oz of your favorite chocolate bar. These are quite wonderful with dark chocolate cocoa powder and dark chocolate chunks/chips, if you prefer to do that.
