  • Measuring Cups and Spoons
  • Electric Mixer
  • Cookie Scoop
  • Parchment Paper or Silicone Baking Mat
  • Baking Sheets


  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil melted
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar packed
  • 1 large Egg
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Chocolate Chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350℉ and line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  • Slightly melt the coconut oil in the microwave for 25 seconds and then add it to the bowl of an electric mixer or a large mixing bowl. Using the paddle attachment or a handheld mixer beat the brown sugar and coconut oil together for 2 to 4 minutes.
  • Add in the egg and vanilla extract to the bowl and continue to mix until just combined.
  • Pour the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt into the bowl and mix on medium speed until a soft dough forms.
  • Add the chocolate chips and mix them into the batter.
  • To make even-sized cookies use a cookie scoop or measure out 2 tablespoons of dough per cookie. To prevent spreading and have a thicker cookie place them in the freezer for 20 minutes before putting them in the oven.
  • Bake for 11 minutes (the cookies won't look done, but if the edges are slightly browned they're ready). Remove from the oven and let them finish cooling for 5 minutes on the baking sheet.
