  • 2 cups and 1 tablespoon All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 3/4 cup Coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup Granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Begin by whisking flour, baking powder, and salt together in a mixing bowl.
  • Next, grab a larger bowl and use a wooden spoon to cream the coconut oil and sugar together until well combined.
  • Add the egg and vanilla to your oil and sugar and mix until combined.
  • Once combined, begin to gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until a dough begins to form. Make sure to add a dash more flour if the dough becomes too sticky, being careful to not over-do it as you don’t want it to become bread-like.
  • Once you have your dough, roll it into a ball, wrap it up, and chill the dough for 30 minutes.
  • Whilst your dough is chilling, preheat the oven to 350 Fahrenheit.
  • Finally, roll the cookie dough into 1.5-inch balls and place on a cookie sheet, flattening the balls with your hand or the bottom of a glass to create flat circles.
  • Bake for 11 minutes or until golden!
