Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies
These healthy chocolate chip cookies are soft, chewy and guaranteed to satisfy any sweet tooth. They're made with whole wheat flour, coconut oil, Greek yogurt and coconut sugar. There's no butter and no chilling required!
Servings: 15 cookies
Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
In a medium mixing bowl combine the flour, baking soda and sea salt.
In a large mixing bowl whisk together the coconut oil, yogurt, coconut sugar, vanilla and egg.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until combined.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Using a tablespoon or small cookie scoop, roll the dough into heaping tablespoon sized balls and drop onto the prepared baking sheet. Press cooking dough down slightly into a cookie shape using a spoon or your fingers.
Top with additional chocolate chips and bake for 9-10 minutes or until edges are slightly browned.
The cookies will be very soft coming out of the oven, but they’ll firm up after setting so make sure to allow the cookies to set for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Whole wheat pastry flour: If you can’t find whole wheat pastry flour you can also use white whole wheat flour, a blend of all-purpose and regular whole wheat flour or just regular all-purpose flour.
- Coconut sugar: White or cane sugar works as well. I haven't tried a liquid sweetener in place of the coconut sugar so I'm not sure how the cookies would turn out.
- Greek yogurt: I haven't tried a vegan yogurt substitute, but I would imagine any dairy-free yogurt would work just fine.
- Egg: I haven't tested this recipe with a vegan substitute, so let me know if you try this with a flax egg in the comments below!
