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!
