  5. 2 t vanilla

  6. 1 large egg, beaten

  • Preheat oven to 350º.

  • In a large mixing bowl add the first three ingredients and mix well.

  • In a second smaller mixing bowl, combine the next four ingredients. Mix well to incorporate coconut oil mashing with a fork if needed to evenly distribute.

  • Pour the wet mixture into the large mixing bowl to combine wet and dry ingredients. Add chocolate chips and stir well to incorporate.

  • Use a tablespoon, scoop rounded dough portions and form with fingers into somewhat rounded shapes.
