Whisk together the coconut oil and sugar until combined. Add the applesauce, and vanilla, and mix until combined.

Add the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. The dough may be a little crumbly, but you should be able to bring it together with your hands.

Roll the dough into 1.5oz balls, and place onto the prepared baking tray. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes.

Allow to cool on the baking tray for 5 – 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
