  • 1/2 cup coconut oil solid
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup cacoa powder or regular unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks or chips use dairy free if paleo. I used 55% dark


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.

  2. In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, mix together the coconut oil and sugar until thoroughly combined. Add the egg and vanilla and stir until just combined.

  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the cacao powder, baking soda and salt. Add to the wet mix and mix to combine.  Then fold in the chocolate chunks. 

  4. Using your hands, form balls from the dough. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. 

  5. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until just set around the edges. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Recipe Notes

The coconut oil must be solid. If your oil is liquid at room temperature, pop it into the fridge for a while before you're ready to use it. Liquid coconut oil will result into a soupy mix that will not form into balls.
