  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line two medium-sized baking sheets with parchment paper. Or lightly grease the pans instead.
  • Melt the coconut oil in a microwave safe measuring glass (or bowl) for 1-2 minutes until completely liquid and warm. Measure to make sure you have exactly 2/3 cup melted coconut oil.
  • Add the warm coconut oil to a large mixing bowl along with the brown sugar and whisk well to combine. Now add the soy milk and vanilla and whisk well until smooth. It should resemble caramel at this point.
  • To the bowl with the liquid ingredients, add the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Mix with a large spoon until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Roll into balls about 1 1/2 tablespoons each. Place on the pan, leaving a little room for the cookies to spread. Bake for 9-11 minutes. They will look underdone and too soft, but will firm up a lot as they cook and become chewy.
  • Let them cool for 10 minutes on the pan, then transfer to a cooling rack. Eat and enjoy!


  1. Also works well melted vegan butter or canola oil in place of the coconut oil.
  2. May use another non-dairy milk if desired for the soy milk. Can be sweetened, unsweetened or vanilla flavored.
  3. May also use tapioca starch for the cornstarch, possibly arrowroot as well.
  4. Gluten free: These may work with an all purpose gluten free mix, but I haven't tested it.
