Everyone seems to have their go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe– the one that is tried and true and works for the whole family.

My family refers to ours as The Best Chocolate Chips Ever. They are delicious, but the ingredient list is also slightly horrifying.

My goal this Christmas was to make a better-for-you version without sacrificing the yumminess factor.

The verdict?

They’re a hit! Chewy and sweet and perfectly chocolaty, they are made with coconut oil, white whole wheat flour, and less sugar– but they don’t taste like a sacrifice.

They’re still not a health food– though that’s not really the point of a chocolate chip cookie. However, they are a better choice for a family full of cookie gluttons!

  1. Oh man, these look awesome. When my son was born I had to cut dairy, and I tried about every way under the sun to make decent chocolate chip cookies sans butter (the only thing I dig was soy free shortening but it was blah.) I’ll have to try coconut oil if I need to cut dairy again with my second!

  2. Oh my gosh I use coconut oil for EVERYTHING, but I’ve yet to put it in a cookie! Im really not sure why, especially since I use it for baking crusts and crumbles so often! These cookies look so dang fluffy and delicious, I would literally eat an entire plate!
