The best sourdough chocolate chip cookies you’ll ever eat. These incredible chocolate chip sourdough cookies are made with simple ingredients like brown sugar, vanilla, and dark chocolate. They’re perfectly crispy on the outside, and chewy in the middle, with melty chocolate in every single bite. Plus, these cookies are naturally fermented with sourdough starter so they’re gut-healthy too!


  • 400 g all-purpose flour
  • 61g sourdough starter, active
  • 227 g salted butter, softened
  • 232g cane sugar (or coconut sugar)
  • 213g light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 396 g chocolate chips or chocolate, chopped (14 oz)


  1. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or mix with a spoon and bowl), combine the butter, cane sugar, and brown sugar. Beat on medium speed, gradually increasing to high until the butter is light and fluffy, and pale in color; about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the sourdough starter, eggs, sea salt, and vanilla, and beat until combined.
  3. Slowly beat in the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Then, add the chocolate chips. Do not over mix.
  4. Place the dough covered in a small tupperware or wrapped in plastic wrap. Be sure the dough is tightly sealed so it doesn’t become dry on the outside.
  5. Ferment the covered dough at room temperature for 8+ hours. I typically will make the dough in the morning so it’s ready by evening! You can refrigerate the dough after 8 hours but before baking just bring it to room temperature for a few hours 🙂
  6. When you’re ready to bake, preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C).
  7. Divide and roll the cookie dough into 10-12 cookies, depending on how large you want your cookies to be. I like each cookie to weigh around 20-30g.
  8. Press the middles down. Bake for 6 – 8 minutes or until lightly browned on the sides.
  9. Remove from the oven and let cookies fully cool on the baking sheet. Enjoy!
  10. Store sourdough cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days or in the refrigerator for 6 days. To reheat, bake in a 350°F (177°C) oven for 5 minutes.
