Ingredients note: Most dark chocolate is vegan but do check the label


  • 125g plain flour
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 100g demerara sugar
  • 100g dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate
  • 75g coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 1 tsp  vanilla paste or extract


  • STEP 1

    Mix the flour, cocoa, baking powder, bicarb, sugar and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Stir in the chocolate chips.

  • STEP 2

    Stir in the coconut oil, vanilla and 2 tbsp water until you have a rough dough. It will look a bit crumbly but should come together if you squeeze a lump together in your hand – if not, add a little more water.

  • STEP 3

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Line a large baking tray with baking paper or a silicone baking mat. Scoop out a generous tbsp of dough and mold into a ball using your hands. Push down on the baking tray into a cookie shape and repeat with the remaining dough – don’t worry about spacing them too far apart as they won’t expand much in the oven.

  • STEP 4

    Bake for 12 minutes then leave to cool before eating. Stored in an airtight container the cookies will keep for a few days.
