Everyone that tried these loved them! They stayed fresh for three days until we finished them all. :) No one could believe they were vegan! I used half all purpose and half wheat flour, and added walnuts. Thanks for the awesome recipe!!
The BEST cookie!!
OMG!! I stumbled onto your recipe because I have been in search for a really good chocolate chip cookie...this is it!!! Well, I have to admit, I did some variations because I didn't have all of the ingredients, but this cookie is boss! I used spelt flour, coconut oil, and maple syrup. These came out so good :-) We're scraping off the last remnants stuck to the parchment paper now. I never write reviews, but I had to for this recipe...absolutely terrific...great job Mattie.
I did something wrong...
I folllowed this recipe exactly but my results were so much different from everyone else! The dough was so hard to combine near the end, it was SO thick. I ended up adding a little bit of water to help mix everything and that was a HUGE mistake- the dough turned into a paste that was impossible to mold into a ball or even get off my hand. Maybe I used too much butter?? I baked them anyway but I'm nervous to taste them...
So, I'm currently obsessed with Whole Foods vegan chocolate chip cookies. I'm not vegan and I'm no longer a vegetarian but I'm still into making either vegan or vegetarian at least 2 times a week. when I made them, I ended up using Truvia baking sugar, and I think that might have screwed me up, I didn't realize I had raw organic sugar in the cabinet till after I added the sugar. My cookies didn't flatten, so when I put the second batch in the oven, I flattened them myself. They were good, and I want to try to make them again with the correct sugar. I wonder if my blackstrap molasses gave it a weird flavor, because I feel like it is lingering in my mouth. So this recipe deserves 5 starts because it's perfect, I'm to one that probably messed it up. Haha I can't wait to make them again.
Delicious!! I did it with half wholemeal/half all-purpose flour and it worked fine!
I just baked these for my brother and I because we are watching the finale of our favorite TV show tonight. I tried a cookie and it was PERFECT. It's somewhere between soft and chewy and, in general, has a really nice texture. Absolutely delightful. My brother can't stand molasses, so I used syrup instead.
I am so excited to have found your website! I am a new vegan and have never been happier the Internet exists. :) Do you have any tips for high altitude for vegan baking? We usually have to add a little extra flour or water. I am very much looking forward to perusing your site for more deliciousness! Thanks in advance!
Thanks for this great recipe. :-)
Wow! I made these last night and they turned out amazingly!! I followed the recipe to a T and I'm so pleased! the 1 thing I would say is that the dough is a little bit crumbly when you first make it... but once you form it into balls it comes together perfectly. and yes, have faith, because they will flatten as they cook!
Thanks for this great recipe. :-)
I just came across this recipe and I can't wait to try it! Is it possible to use oil in place of the margarine, though? I don't have vegan margarine where I live. Also is there a special reason why only 3 tbsp water is used with the 2 tbsp of flax? I thought the usual ratio was 1tbsp flax + 3tbsp water. (I'm only asking to determine if my previous cookie flops were due to the flax+water ratio I used) Thanks!
I'm not able to use all purpose as I have wheat/gluten allergies; I cannot use the vegan margarine you've suggested as I have soy/canola,dairy allergies. I was wondering what type of flour would be comparible other than grain flours? Would coconut oil be okay to use? I would really like to try this recipe but I want to know what substitutes I can use before trying it.
Non-vegans agree these are excellent!!
I brought two plates of these to a dessert party last night. I was the only vegan in the group, and didn't mention ahead of time that the cookies were vegan. The first plate was gone like THAT! When I mentioned the cookies were vegan no one could believe it! The party hosts asked if they could keep (what little remained of) the second plate. Thanks for making recipes like these that help spread the word about how great vegan cuisine and baking can be!
There is nothing wrong with these! Perfect chocolate chip cookie. Cannot tell its vegan! Delicious.
My cookies never flatted either half way through. I used Earth Balance shortening and turbinado sugar, as that's all I had and I had to press them down half way through baking to work. They just stayed in balls. I even baked them at 360 F just in case... Sad.
The Best So Far
Due to a new egg and milk allergy I don't have to miss my chocolate chip cookies. I used the coarse cane sugar and it gave it a grainy texture but they tasted really great. Next time I will use standard sugar. They did brown on the edges and were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
