UPDATE: Please make sure to double check ingredients each time you buy. I hope I never overlook anything but it’s possible and ingredients can change. A lot of my posts are over two years old and since I have gone back dairy soy free I have discovered a few items I use to buy all the time that now have soy in them.
Not sure what it is about this time of year, but I get in the mood to bake. I guess the holidays coming up make me feel happy, and when I'm happy I like to bake. So today I have another cookie recipe. The sugar cookies are fantastic, but who could turn down a hot chocolate chip cookie.
Dairy Soy Free Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Coconut Oil
lngredients (Yields 30 cookies):
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda (my cookies came out really thin, next time I will use baking powder instead, the soda might have been a misprint on the original recipe)
1 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 cup coconut oil (at room temperature)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg.) Enjoy Life Chocolate Chunks (if you are dairy soy free, if not any chocolate chips you want)
*If you use self rising flour leave out the baking powder (or soda) and salt.
PREHEAT oven to 350° F.
COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl.
BEAT coconut oil in large mixer bowl until smooth. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla extract; beat until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels.
DROP by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets. If you want you can use a cookie scoop so that all cookies are the same size.
BAKE for 9 to 12 minutes or until golden brown and edges have begun to set but centers are still soft. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Or, enjoy warm while the chocolate is still molten.
Love seeing this happy cookie face, she can't tell they are dairy soy free.
Update: I tried them with baking powder instead of soda, and it helped them rise a little bit.
