Chocolate Chip Cookies

The best sweet treat to bake on a weeknight

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 18


  • 1/2 cup coconut oil or crisco
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup & 2 Tbsp flour
  • 6 oz chocolate chips more or less based on preference


  1. In a large mizing bowl, use a spatula to stir coconut oil (or crisco) and sugar together. Add brown sugar and stir until well combined.

  2. Push the oil/crisco and sugar mixture to the side of the bowl and beat egg, vanilla, baking soda and salt on the other side of the bowl.

  3. Mix all ingredients from the first two steps until well blended.

  4. Gradually add flour into the mixture and stir until fully mixed. Fold in chocolate chips.

  5. Spoon dough onto a parchment paper covered cookie sheet; I usually add 12 cookies to one baking sheet. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes until cookies start to brown, being careful not to over bake :)

  6. Remove from oven and transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
