Prep Time: 15 minutes

Bake Time: 21 minutes


Ingredients

Parchment paper for baking, see shopping tips

½ cup coconut oil

2 tablespoons canola oil or vegetable oil

2 tablespoons water

⅓ cup white sugar

⅓ cup brown sugar

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup unbleached all purpose flour

⅔ cup old fashioned rolled oats

½ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon salt

1 cup dairy free semisweet baking chips, see shopping tips


Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a standing mixer or large bowl using a hand mixer, blend together the coconut oil, canola oil and water. Add both sugars and mix well until very smooth. Stir in vanilla. Add flour, oats, baking soda and salt. Mix until combine. Stir in chocolate chips. Mix well.

3. Drop cookies by rounded teaspoon onto cookie sheets. Using the palm of your hand, flatten each cookie a bit. Each tray should have 20 cookies; 4 across and 5 down. Bake both trays in oven for 11 minutes. Rotate trays and bake for an additional 9-10 minutes until very golden brown. Remove from oven. They will crisp up once cooled. Place remaining unbaked cookies on a cooled cookie sheet. Bake for 16-18 minutes until deep golden brown. Once cooled, store in airtight plastic container, a tin or plastic sealable bags. These freeze great.

Makes 53 cookies.


Shopping Tips
Parchment paper can be found in the foil/ plastic wrap section of most supermarkets.  It comes on a roll like foil. Reynolds is the brand you see most often. 

Most health food markets such as Whole Foods sell dairy free chocolate chips. I used Sunspire Chocolate Dream, dairy free, semi sweet baking chips.

 

Prep Tip
Lining cookie sheets with parchment paper is fabulous way to create perfectly baked cookies.  It insures that the cookies don’t burn on the bottom before they’re baked through.
