Chocolate Butterscotch Chip Cookies
At the height of the holiday baking season, I always feel like I’m knee-deep in chips: peanut butter chips, cinnamon chips, chocolate chips of every variety– dark, semi-sweet, milk, white…
Come January, though, I always seem to have that one last bag of butterscotch chips that I didn’t end up using. That’s partly because one of the main people I bake for is not a huge butterscotch fan (I don’t understand it, but there it is). That’s okay, because I can make these cookies and have one fewer person to share them with!
The combination of chocolate and butterscotch always feels especially rich and satisfying to me, and because these cookies are made with white whole wheat flour and coconut oil, I can sit back and tell myself that they’re practically a health food! 😉
- ⅔ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 3-4 tablespoons almond or cashew milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- ½ cup butterscotch chips
- ¼ cup mini chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350° and grease cookie sheets with cooking spray.
- In an electric mixer, beat the brown sugar and coconut oil together, then add the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Add the milk 1 tablespoon at a time until dough forms. You may need to use a little bit more-- just add it slowly. Add the vanilla.
- Fold in the butterscotch chips and mini chocolate chips.
- Drop spoonfuls of the dough onto the sheets and flatten.
- Bake for 8 minutes, cool on the sheets for 3, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
This recipe is vegan with the appropriate butterscotch and chocolate chips.

- Remember last week, when I said I was going to get a little Jane Austen fix but not go too crazy? I did the opposite of that. I’m rereading everything and I’m doing a Jane Austen film festival. I absolutely do not have time for this. Also, some of these film adaptations are terrible, but I am powering right on through anyway. 🙂
- So, who else wakes up with songs stuck in their head? This has been a pretty constant phenomenon for me for as long as I can remember. As a teenager I even tracked what the songs were to try find a pattern (I was a weird kid)… there wasn’t one. I just wake up singing in my head, which is kind of funny, because that’s the only place I can sing. 😉
- Which brings me to a question: what talent do you wish you had? I’m split pretty evenly between wishing I could sing and wishing I could draw.
