  • Preheat the oven to 375°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the sugar, applesauce and coconut oil on medium speed until well combined, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until combined, 1 more minute.
  • With the mixer on low speed, slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined, without over mixing. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Divide the dough into 1 ½ tablespoon-sized balls using a spring-loaded scoop. Bake for 10 minutes or until cookie edges have set but the center still looks soft. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.


Storage: Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days at room temperature.
Freezing: Freeze the cookies on a baking sheet and transfer to a freezer bag or container. They will keep well for up to 3 months.
Substitutions: Make these cookies vegan by swapping the egg for a flax egg.
