Perfectly soft and chewy Double Chocolate Coconut Oil Cookies. Loaded with chocolate chips and sprinkled with sea salt!
These Double Chocolate Chip Cookies are super rich, ultra fudgey, and chewy. If you are a chocolate lover you will absolutely love these cookies! These Double Chocolate Cookies are made with coconut oil instead of butter. The coconut oil makes the cookies super soft and chewy with a subtle hint of coconut.
To increase the chocolate flavor I added some coffee granules. Coffee helps to accentuate the cocoa powder in the cookies.
To make the dough I mixed the coconut oil with both sugars until combined. Add in your egg and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients separately and add them to the wet ingredients. Fold in chocolate chips and your done!
When the cookies come out of the oven I place a few more chocolate chips on top and a sprinkle of sea salt.
These coconut oil cookies are so good you will not miss the butter!
