How to Make the Cookies Vegan
The chocolate coconut combo is amazing! I used coconut oil and Almond Breeze’s Almondmilk Coconutmilk Original to make the cookies. The milk gives the cookies a hint of coconut flavor and keeps them super moist and fudgy without using any eggs. For an extra kick of coconut, I rolled the cookies in coconut before baking them. The coconut made the cookies pretty too and I am all about pretty! I promise you won’t be able to tell these chocolate coconut cookies are vegan. They are a chocolate lover’s dream!
Stop and listen closely. Do you hear that? See, I told you! The cookies are calling your name! You better go make a batch of Vegan Chocolate Coconut Cookies right now! Don’t blame me, blame the cookies:) Enjoy!

- 25 cookies
- 1 1/4 cups white whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 2/3 cup Dutch process cocoa
- 1/2 cup coconut oil melted and cooled to room temperature
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
- 1/3 cup Almond Breeze Almondmilk Coconutmilk Original
- 1 1/4 cups sweetened flake coconut divided
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line baking sheets with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder and cocoa. Set aside.
3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine beat sugars together until combined. With the mixer running, pour in the coconut oil. Beat on medium-high until well combined. Add the vanilla and coconut extract and beat until smooth.
4. Add the flour mixture in two batches, alternately with the coconut milk, with the mixer on low. Stir in 1 cup of the coconut.
5. Form dough into balls, using a cookie scoop or spoon. Roll dough balls in the remaining coconut. Slightly press the coconut into the balls if it isn't sticking. Place on prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake cookies for 12 minutes or until the cookies are set around the edges, but soft in the center. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.
Note-you can make this dough in advance. It will keep in the fridge for up to 2 days.
