  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the coconut oil and brown sugar using a fork.
  3. Then add the plant milk, cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, instant coffee granules, and salt. Mix under very well combined. The mixture might look a bit clumpy, and that's okay.
  4. If the temperature is warm where you are, you may want to consider chilling this mixture in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up, otherwise, the cookies flatten and spread too much when baking in the oven.
  5. Add the flour to the bowl and stir until just combined. Careful to not over-mix.
  6. Then gently fold in the chopped chocolate.
  7. Form little balls out of the dough and evenly distribute, about 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on a parchment-lined baking tray.
  8. To decorate, add a few bits of chopped chocolate to the top of each cookie.
  9. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 12 - 14 minutes.
  10. Let cool for 1 minute on the cooking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely. Enjoy!


  • * The coconut oil needs to be solid for this recipe, and not melted. If the oil is soft, simply place it in the fridge until hardened. Refined coconut oil is coconut oil that doesn't smell or taste like coconuts. Using refined coconut oil is preferred to unrefined as the cookies retain a more neutral flavour.

These are so easy & quick to make and so delicious. I actually used whole wheat flour (I had run out of normal flour) and they still were really tasty !

PUL Team - Sept. 20, 2021, 6:24 a.m.

Thank you for the insight, Stephanie, we're so glad the cookies were enjoyed!

Hiba AJ - Aug. 18, 2021, 8 p.m.

Made 2 batches of these delicious cookies for a big family gathering in an olive farm on the mountains! 🏔 Needless to say these cookies were AWESOME, light, and chocolaty and were a good end to a beautiful day. Everyone was asking me for the recipe and they FLIPPED when I told them it doesn’t have eggs or butter! So happy with how they turned out 🥺💛

PUL Team - Aug. 19, 2021, 10:37 p.m.

Aww that sounds like a lovely gathering, Hiba! So happy the cookies were enjoyed 🥰

Monet - Sept. 18, 2021, 3:52 a.m.

My goodness!! Where was this olive farm!? So curious.
This recipe is on my to-make list!

Jaymi - Aug. 18, 2021, 4:44 a.m.

These turned out so yummy! Which was seriously surprising since my dough was soup until I added the flour and everyone kept asking what that horrible smell was. Apparently, none of us like the smell of coconut oil baking, lol. But they are seriously good!

PUL Team - Aug. 19, 2021, 8:09 p.m.

Hi Jaymi! Did you use refined coconut oil? Using refined coconut may be helpful to reduce the coconut smell. It may also be worthwhile to double-check your coconut oil is still fresh as an offputting smell may be a sign it's gone rancid. So glad you enjoyed the cookies regardless 🤗

Donna - Aug. 5, 2021, 10:39 p.m.

Is it possible to make these gluten free?

PUL Team - Aug. 6, 2021, 1:49 a.m.

Hi Donna! We can't say with certainty as we haven't had a chance to test it out with gluten-free flour. With that said, a mix of gluten-free flours usually works better than using just one flour on its own. Here's a flour blend recipe from Minimalist Baker that might help:… - Do let us know how it goes if you give the cookies a try 😊

Nina - Aug. 1, 2021, 4:49 p.m.

These cookies are so delicious! I‘ve made them many times. Thank you so much for the recipe!! I store them in a glass jar since they hardened quite a bit in an airtight container. So yum 😍

PUL Team - Aug. 4, 2021, 5:49 a.m.

Thanks for sharing the review, Nina, it means so much! Allowing the cookies to cool completely before storing may be one idea to help if you opt for storing them there again ☺️

Aurora - July 29, 2021, 7:40 p.m.

Another incredible recipe you guys! I struggled a bit making it as my coconut oil was completely liquid and then way too hard after I put it in the fridge but the final result was well worth it. I used white sugar instead of brown and honey instead of maple syrup as I had run out of them and they turned out perfect (in case someone is in a similar same situation). Another win for PUL!

PUL Team - July 29, 2021, 11:30 p.m.

Thanks a bunch for sharing, Aurora! Briefly heating up the coconut oil or fork if desired may help if it's too hard to mash :)

Michelle - July 29, 2021, 4:16 p.m.

I think I fell in love when I ate these cookies ♡ Before I was vegan, cookies were my favourite thing to make, and after going vegan, I thought I would never find the perfect cookie recipe again. But after trying these, all my cookie concerns have gone away! These are without a doubt the best cookies I have ever tasted, and they're super simple to make too! I made some for my friends, and we had them with ice cream, and it was incredible!!

PUL Team - July 29, 2021, 11:39 p.m.

Aw you're too kind, Michelle, what a huge compliment! Thank you so much for the glowing review 💚

Patricia - July 29, 2021, 1:28 a.m.

I love this recipe, its really the best chocolate cookie ever and pretty simple. I make them often as a treat, it is great with a latte or a cup of earl-grey tea.

Victoria - July 27, 2021, 3:30 a.m.

The flavor is really good on these cookies and they're good when warm out of the oven, but were a bit on the dry side when cooled. We followed the recipe exactly, but the texture was a lot more crumbly than the dough in the video.

PUL Team - July 28, 2021, 7:43 a.m.

Thanks for the honest review, Victoria! Cookies that come out more dry and crumbly often mean there is too much flour in comparison to oil and sugar. Did you measure using the gram and mL amounts listed, or using the cup and Tbsp amounts?

In case you used the cup measurements, and if you'd like to make the cookies again, perhaps these tips might help: ensure that the flour is not too packed in the cup, but rather, gently spooned into the measuring cup and levelled. This will ensure that not too much flour is added.

Since the recipe calls for "packed" solid coconut oil and "packed" brown sugar, we imagine the amount of "packing" could also be what caused the difference. Adding more coconut oil and brown sugar - or in other words, "packing" the cups fuller - should help ☺️ If you enjoy chewier cookies, you can also increase the amount of maple syrup added by a tbsp or two. We hope this helps for now!

Celina - July 25, 2021, 8:04 p.m.

These cookies are delicious! I made a double recipe and brought them to a potluck and almost all were eaten! Also no one guessed that these were vegan :-). By the way I used vegan margarine instead of the coconut oil because I didn't have that and it turned out great. This is definitely one of my favorite recipes!

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 6:08 p.m.

We appreciate this so much, Celina! So glad the cookies were enjoyed 🤗

Priyanka - July 25, 2021, 2:17 a.m.

Must try! Absolutely decadent and OH SO YUM!

Kathia Buenrostro - July 24, 2021, 7:32 p.m.

Absolutely delicious and easy to make! I love this recipe!

Bindia - July 24, 2021, 7 p.m.

Such an easy fool-proof recipe that gives us the perfect chocolatey chewy satisfaction every single time. They don’t last long out the oven :D

PUL Team - July 26, 2021, 7:20 a.m.

So lovely to hear, Bindia, thank you for sharing the review! 😃

Kaitlyn - July 23, 2021, 8:52 a.m.

Made these cookies before and loved them so much! So chewy, easy to make, and not too sweet. I have one or two every single afternoon as a snack!

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 7:02 p.m.

Yay - so glad you enjoyed them, Kaitlyn! 😊

Solveig - July 20, 2021, 10:31 p.m.

The best Cookies ever! They always come out great und everyone loves them!

Javi Bravo - July 13, 2021, 1:07 a.m.

🍪Best recipe for #cannabis cookies! It's like tasting heavens medicine!💊

Keren - July 11, 2021, 4:33 p.m.

Just made these cookies, the house if filled with a chocolatey smell and they are delicious!!!

Sandra - July 10, 2021, 4:55 p.m.

I just made a batch of these and they are so delicious! I watched the video before baking them and Sadia stated clearly that the coconut oil should be solid, but summer has been intense over here lately so my coconut oil was completely melted haha. Didn’t have patience to put it into the fridge and wait, so I used dairy-free butter instead. Worked out great!

PUL Team - July 15, 2021, 4:32 p.m.

So glad you were able to find a substitute for the coconut oil, Sandra! Thanks for sharing 🤗

Lorraine - July 10, 2021, 1:18 p.m.

Le côté "chewy" est indéniable et pour les goûter du week-end, c'est idéal. Meilleurs mangés vite quand même ^^

Babet - July 9, 2021, 12:20 p.m.

Oh my god, I've made this recipe like a 100 times already. It's so easy and usally I have all the ingredients somewhere in the house so it's never any trouble for me to make them. My family is also obsessed with them, the cookies never make the night haha. The outside it crunchy, the inside chewy and the chocolate also gets hard after a while, which adds another crunch to it. I am just completely in love with them :)

PUL Team - July 14, 2021, 4 p.m.

What a huge compliment, Babet, a sincere thank you for taking the time to share your review! So happy you're enjoying the cookies ✨

Ankita - July 9, 2021, 9:06 a.m.

Hey definitely trying this one out. How would it affect the cookies if I use normal sugar instead of brown?

PUL Team - July 13, 2021, 7:35 a.m.

Hello, Ankita. Thanks for the lovely question! The cookies may come out a bit denser since brown sugar has molasses which helps add moisture and acidity whereas white sugar doesn't have molasses. Adding some extra coconut oil may help reduce this if you don't enjoy more crispy cookies 🙂 Let us know how it goes if you give it a try!

Gabriela - July 8, 2021, 9:02 p.m.

If anyone tells you that vegan desert can't be as good as "normal" one, make them these, guys...I can't describe the amazingness of those cookies.

This are the best cookies ever thank you pick up lines team

Becca - May 28, 2021, 3:14 p.m.

Hi, while I love this recipe, I find it difficult to measure solid oil by the cup or ml. Could you please add the weight of the 120ml of coconut oil? Thanks!

PUL Team - May 30, 2021, 7:56 a.m.

Hey there, Becca! Thanks for pointing this out so we're aware it may be an issue to address moving forward. 120 mL of coconut is around 110 grams. We hope you enjoy the cookies 😃

Becca - May 30, 2021, 10:45 a.m.

Great, thank you so much! Good to know that I've been getting it right :) The cookies are yummy!

Namita Hasija - May 12, 2021, 8:02 p.m.

Hi guys! Hope you are all safe. I tried these cookies but my dough is very dry, difficult to combine to make balls. Any suggestions?

Namita Hasija - May 12, 2021, 8:08 p.m.

Is it because i used stevia? How can i make it work with artificial sweetener?

PUL Team - May 13, 2021, 6:44 a.m.

Hey Namita, nice problem-solving! That is totally a possibility as artificial sweeteners tend to hold moisture differently. Using the recommended substitution amounts on the sweeteners package would be a good start. Perhaps adding some more soy milk may help with the moisture and make up for the lost sugar bulk as well! We hope you have fun experimenting with it if you give the cookies anither try 😃

Clara - May 5, 2021, 4:55 p.m.

The cookies are fantastic! The only thing is I had to add alot more milk, is it because I used wholegrain flour? Anyways, thanks so much for this delicious recipe!

PUL Team - May 8, 2021, 10:37 p.m.

So glad you enjoyed the cookies, Clara! Using whole wheat flour would definitely be the culprit for needing more liquid. This is because whole wheat flour is denser and absorbs more liquid than all-purpose 🍪

Elena - April 16, 2021, 9:21 p.m.

This looks delicious!
I was wondering, can i use coconut sugar instead of brown sugar?

PUL Team - April 19, 2021, 2:26 a.m.

Hey Elena! We haven't tested it out, but you can likely substitute brown sugar for coconut sugar. The cookie may be a bit denser since brown sugar has molasses which helps aid moisture whereas coconut sugar doesn't. Adding some extra coconut oil may help reduce this 🙂 Let us know how it goes if you test it out!

Ale - April 11, 2021, 6:30 p.m.

First cookie receipt I have ever tried! Love how chewy it is. Thank you

PUL Team - April 12, 2021, 4:32 a.m.

Yay! We're so glad your first attempt was a success, Ale 😃

Reham - April 10, 2021, 4:08 a.m.

Can i substitute the AP flour for whole grain flour or oat flour in this recipe? Thanks:)

PUL Team - April 10, 2021, 5:29 p.m.

Hi Reham, great question! We can't say for certain as we haven't tried it before, but with some experimenting, it may be possible 😃 For whole wheat flour, you should be able to substitute around a third to half of the all-purpose flour with whole wheat without major changes. Adding more than this will likely require more liquid and the cookies will be denser.

For oat flour, we'd also recommend trying half oat and half all-purpose flour to start, and see if you like it. Then try the next time with all oat flour. All-purpose flour has gluten in it, which helps give it the classic structure of a cookie. Oat flour might not offer this, but it might be a fun one to experiment with 🙂 and if you do, let us know how it goes!

Tina - March 29, 2021, 10:11 a.m.

I make these almost every week, my friends and family can't get enough of them! So delicious!

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 11:16 p.m.

So glad you and your family are enjoying the cookies, Tina 🥰
