This is the one!
Only variation was to reduce the baking time to 12.5 minutes, perfect recipe. Cookies still soft the morning after baking. My allergy challenged Greenly gave her stamp of approval. Awesome taste!
while making these i had to add a bit of coconut milk as i was mixing the batter b/c it was too crumbly despite having followed the recipe exactly. when i added the milk it came together into a stiff dough. i also found that I had to bake them a bit longer than suggested. A bit less sugar and salt next time b/c those flavors were rather over-powering but still a very good cookie.
Sugar - vegan?
Hi! I had a vegan say to me that all vegans know that regular granulated sugar isn't vegan (gets processed through bone char). So I am assuming that when you call for sugar in your recipes that you mean vegan sugar. Correct?
These cookies are the best vegan chocolate chip cookies out there! Literally everyone I gave these to loved them and they couldn't believe they were vegan! I did lower the amount of sugar to 1 full cup and they still tasted perfect! Thanks for the recipe
These cookies are amazing. You are totally right about the molasses and cinnamon...I've started adding a touch of molasses to other cookie recipes to get that same flavor. Has anyone had any luck making this recipe gluten free?
Amazing!! Better than the "real" thing! Even my non-vegan friends thought they were great! I had almost given up on vegan baking until I made these! Thank you!
Seriously the best vegan chocolate chip cookies I've ever made/tried
Could I use shortening such as Crisco instead of vegan butter?
made them and enjoyed them
How have I been a sweet tooth vegan for 8 years and only just discovered this site/ these cookies!!?
These are PERFECT.
Previous cookies I have tried have been quite 'cakey' but these are just as described. Soft, chewy and cookie perfection.
Thank you for sharing this recipe x
Too sweet but otherwise fantastic
I made these yesterday. The texture is perfect, and the subtle hint of cinnamon is sheer brilliance. However, they're way too sweet for my tastes, though surprisingly, my husband (who generally has a lower sugar tolerance than me) loves them. Next time, I'm going to try cutting back the sugar to 1 cup, and hope that this doesn't change the texture too much. Will report back.
Substitutions I made
I used 3/4 cup olive oil instead of vegan butter, and tripled the flax and reduced the sugar to 1 cup, and rolled them in shredded coconut and was pleased.
The Closest I've Come to My Favorite Non-vegan One
in fact, i'm not sure i could tell a difference between these and my non-vegan favorites in a blind taste test. this is the perfect dough to eat with a spoon. thank you for this!
someone come take these away from me...
Made these with Regular Vegan Butter, vegan white chocolate chips, and macadamia nuts. and now i need to join some sort of 12 step program, cuz i can't stop. My house has always been food central for my family. no one was ever afraid to be my guinea pig. until i started cooking cruelty free. it was actually really difficult to regain the confidence of those who usually just enthusiastically gobbled up whatever i made. this recipe is like ammo in the battle against nervous grimaces and upturned noses.
hey! that recipe looks really great!
just before i try it, i have flax-goo in my freezer and i have a "no egg" egg replacer.
can i use one of them insted of flax meal?
Awesome recipe! Instead of flax, I used standard oats that I ground with a coffee grinder. Came out better than any other vegan cookie recipe I have tried to date. Thank you very much
Too much flour!?!! Both times I've made them they aren't soft and chewy :(
I love these! Will definitely be adding to the recipe box! I love the addition of the cinnamon and molasses....makes a tasty, chewy cookie. And thanks fie the previous comment on using coconut butter/oil...I used Earth Balance and a little grape seed oil, and a mix of organic spelt, rice and white flour and they turned out wonderful. Thanks!
These cookies have an incredible flavour! I love the little bit of cinnamon - they're not "cinnamony" per se, but it does give the flavour added depth without being in-your-face.
I usually bake with coconut oil and coconut palm sugar, so those were the only modifications I made to suit my dietary preferences. The first time, I hadn't read any comments so I just substituted solid coconut oil for the vegan butter, and the dough was super crumbly and dry. I managed to make it work with a bit of water added but it wasn't perfect (but they tasted SO GOOD that I had to try again). This time, I used melted coconut oil, and went by your suggestion (in the comments somewhere) of using 11 tablespoons of oil + 3 tablespoons of water. The dough was a completely different story! It held together beautifully like "normal" cookie dough, and flattened a little in the baking process (though I ended up helping the dough balls a bit by flattening them with a fork).
Thanks so much for this recipe, I know it's going to be a standby in our house!
Question about the sugar
Hi! This recipe looks absolutely delicious and I'm so excited to try it. I just have one question about the sugar and molasses. I have brown sugar on hand but no molasses, so I was wondering if I could just use the same amount of sugar called for in the recipe, substituting with brown sugar and leaving out the molasses? If I use brown sugar instead should I still add some molasses? Thank you!
These cookies are the best. My husband begs me to make them, he even offers to help!! That should speak for itself!! I have a question though. What adjustments would I need to make to do cookie bars instead?
As one who is doing a trail of vegetarian/Vegan diet, it intrigues me that the ingredients used focus on vegan but are not using organic flour but flour denoting ingredients such as aluminum phosphate, bad stuff if you have Alzheimer's as a risk in your family. I think it prudent to not only eat the proper diet but ensure the ingredients are equally proper!
Seriously...the best chocolate chip cookies!
I've fooled so many people by making these. People do not know they are vegan because they are so good!! Pair this with some nondairy ice cream or just by themselves, freshly out of the oven...omg droooool. So good!! Such a great find and I'm never searching again for another chocolate chip cookie recipe!
Chewy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
I love the sound of this recipe but was wondering if it would turn out the same when using whole wheat pastry flour? I sometimes do a recipe with 1/3 soy flour and 2/3 pastry flour. should I try this or do you think pastry flour alone would be ok?
Best kid/allergy friendly recipe
Thank you for posting this recipe. My child is allergic to both eggs and dairy, so finding a decent yet simple chocolate chip cookie recipe has been a challenge. We have tried many recipes and this one is by far a favourite with the entire family.
Also, The first time I made this I didn't have molasses on hand, so I used 3/4 caster sugar and 3/4 dark brown sugar, and the cookies turned out lovely and chewy.
These are the best vegan cookies i've ever made. Thank you! I've always been disappointed with the lack of chewiness in the other recipes i've tried. These were delicious, and so, so satisfyingly chewy --you'd never know i'd nearly blown it completely, having A) misjudged the amount of baking soda and been forced to scoop out an indeterminate amount of excess from a mound of flour, and B) realized at the last minute that i was out of the most important ingredient contributing to chewiness: molasses! I replaced it with a 1/4 c of shredded coconut and crossed my fingers. The result was hands-down delicious and, thankfully, idiot-proof.
Thanks Mattie! These cookies were absolutely amazing! I followed the recipe exactly as written with no substitutions except I baked them only about 13 minutes since I think my oven runs hot. They came out perfect. Since this recipe makes more than I could (or should!) eat, I froze them for over a week, defrosted them, and they still have a great chewy texture, almost like I had just bought them from a store or bakery. I am a new vegan and this was my first attempt at vegan baking and am so glad I found this site. I will be making the flaky vegan pie crust next, and can't wait to see how it comes out. Thank you again!!!
These cookies are delicious! I baked them on Halloween to give to my friends' vegan daughter instead of candy, and she loved them! I do have a question, though. I've made them twice and they're very hard, very crunchy! Once you get past the crunch they're sort of chewy, but I wonder if I'm doing something wrong? I followed the recipe exactly EXCEPT I left cinnamon out, and replaced the molasses with maple syrup (same amount). Would any of that affect the chewiness? Thanks!
These are so easy and yummy! I made them for a second time today and and covered a few Oreos in the dough and they came out so good.
