Units Scale


  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cane sugar, brown sugar, melted coconut oil, aquafaba/coconut milk and vanilla until combined.
  • Sift in the all purpose flour and baking soda and add in the salt. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet using a folding motion with a large spatula. This helps with not over mixing. Mix until the batter looks almost fully uniform. 
  • Fold in the chocolate chips. until evenly dispersed throughout the batter. This also finished off mixing the batter. 
  • Cover the bowl with a lid or wrap and place into the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350 F (180 C)*
  • Using a medium cookie scoop, portion out the dough into equal sized balls (around 50g each) and roll into a tall ball (refer to photos). 
  • Place the cookie dough on a lined baking tray leaving 2 inches between each cookie and bake for 10-13 minutes, or until there are golden brown spots. To achieve crinkled edges, tap the pan on the oven rack a few times before taking them out of the oven. 
  • Let them cool on the baking tray for 5 minutes. Then transfer onto a wire rack to let them cool completely before eating. 


  • *Cane sugar can be substituted with coconut sugar or maple sugar however the texture will not be as crisp around the edges.
  • **Brown sugar can be substituted with coconut sugar or maple sugar + 1/2 tbsp molasses. 
  • **I started using vegan butter instead of coconut oil which I have found to yield a better crispy to chewy ratio with the perfect amount of spread. If you do not have vegan butter, you can still use coconut oil or a blend of coconut oil and vegan margarine.  Be sure to use aquafaba/coconut milk that is warm or at least room temperature so that the coconut oil does not solidify. 
  • ****I use a combination of coconut milk and aquafaba for the perfect chewy moist texture. You can use all coconut milk for ultra moist cookies or all aquafaba for chewy cookies.
