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



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


  • 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. 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.
