  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar packed
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup oat milk or plant-based milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 1/3 cup enriched all-purpose flour sifted
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips type and brand of choice


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, brown sugar, and vanilla, beating until well combined.
  • Add in the oat milk and applesauce and whisk until well combined; set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk well to combine.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet mixture. Stir ingredients until combined using a wooden spoon or very study spatula.
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Scoop cookie dough onto the prepared cooking sheet, leaving at least an inch in between cookies for spreading.
  • Bake for 9-10 minutes, or until the cookie edges are golden and the centers have set.
  • Cool cookies on the baking sheet for 15 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.


This batter will be very thick! If the dough appears too sticky, add a little more flour, one tablespoon at a time. If the dough appears too dry, add a tablespoon of the oat milk.
