Ingredients in Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
We always recommend using the best ingredients you can find so you create the most delicious, decadent cookie possible! Here are some notes on the ingredients that will produce absolute chocolate chip cookie heaven:
- Flour: We use whole wheat pastry flour, but you could also use white whole wheat or all-purpose flour.
- Unsweetened cocoa powder: If you have it handy try dutch-process cocoa powder, it will give you the richest chocolatey flavor possible. You may also use natural cocoa powder (Hershey's)
- Brown sugar: We used just brown sugar, not white, for these cookies to create the richest flavor possible.
- Maple syrup: This is a great way to add sweetness while also adding a robust depth of flavor!
- Chocolate chips: Use especially good quality here! We like 70% cocoa chocolate chips ( we like Wegman's brand, they are inexpensive and great tasting - Not sponsored)
- Tahini: Make sure you’re buying good quality tahini made from 100% sesame seeds! You read that right, there is tahini in these double chocolate chip cookies! Tahini is a paste made from ground sesame seeds that brings a nutty, deep, savory flavor that perfectly balances the sweetness of this cookie recipe.
- Egg or Flax egg: You can use one egg or substitute a flax egg to keep this recipe vegan!
- Coconut oil: This keeps your cookies moist and soft!
- Pink Himalayan Salt: For that irresistible sweet and salty combination.
The Difference Between Table Salt and Himalayan Pink Salt
It’s mostly about texture here ( and some trace mineral and that beautiful pink color)! We love using Himalayan Pink Sea Salt to sprinkle on top of each cookie. The contrast of the salty and sweet creates an absolutely addicting treat, and the texture of Himalayan salt is unbeatable! It’s coarse, flaky, and delectable.

- 1 ¼ cup whole wheat pastry flour, you may use white whole wheat or all-purpose flour
- 4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ cup chocolate chips
- ½ cup coconut oil, melted
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp natural vanilla extract
- 1 flax egg ( 1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water) or one large egg
- ⅓ cup tahini
- Himalayan pink salt, any other flaky salt or whatever salt you have on hand
- Preheat the oven to 375F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper
- Combine the flour, 2 tablespoons of the cocoa powder and baking powder in a medium bowl and sift. Add the chocolate chips and mix again. Set aside
- In a large bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil and brown sugar until dissolved. Add the maple syrup, vanilla and the remaining 2 tablespoons of the cocoa powder and whisk well. Add the flax egg and continue whisking
- Add the flour mixture and mix using a wooden spoon, until just incorporated. Add the tahini and mix slightly, so it's not completely blended with the dough (so you can see tahini swirls )
- Scoop about 1 ½ tablespoons of dough per cookie and place them on the lined baking sheet, about an inch apart.
- Flatten them slightly with the palm of your hand and sprinkle some salt on top (to taste). Bake for 12 minutes (see note 1) and let them cool completely
- With this baking time, the cookies will be soft and fudgy. For dryer cookies, bake them for 2 extra minutes
- Store in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
- These cookies freeze really well in an airtight container. For that freshly baked taste microwave frozen cookies for 10-15 seconds and enjoy warm

Sara Springer says
If I want to use eggs do I use one for this recipe?
Vicky & Ruth says
Hi! Yes, you can use one egg here. Enjoy!
Could I use an oil other than coconut? I'm never sure when I can substitute.
Vicky & Ruth says
You may use vegan butter for this recipe. You can try also a neutral-flavored oil like avocado, sunflower ot safflower, but a vegan butter would work best.
Gita Freed says
I made these, but used avocado oil instead of coconut oil (saved the effort of melting) and they came out really good. This recipe is a keeper!
Vicky & Ruth says
Thank you so much! Enjoy!

Vicky & Ruth says
