I've baked these cookies again and again, I couldn't be more satisfied!! They're awesome. My non vegan friends ate them and loved them, they couldn't believe they were vegan!!
A friend of mine asked me the recipe but would like to substitute the flax meal with eggs, because where she lives flax seeds are hard to find and she doesn't have a grinder, so how many eggs should be put in the recipe instead of the mixture water + flax meal?

So glad you like them Kirsten! For an egg substitution, replacing the flax/water mixture with one egg should work.

these cookies are GREAT! it's my 3rd attempt for a vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe and this one is by far the best! when i did my shopping i didn't realize i needed to get flax meal and ended up getting the golden flax seeds. i just threw a handful in the food processor for a while until it was all ground up. it was fun watching the seeds fly around in there! i only have 1 cookie sheet. the first round i made the cookies kind of on the bigger side (about 3 1/2-4inches diameter after cooked) and baked them for 15 minutes as the recipe suggests, also turning it half way through. they came out SOOOO good. i made them around 11:30am and they are still soft and it's 8:30pm now! the 2nd round i made the cookie dough smaller (about 2 inches diameter after cooked) and baked for the full 15 minutes, turning half way through. and those came out VERRRRRY crunchy! still tastes great and good for dunking though!!

Thanks for such a good recipe :-D

I am new to the healthy eating scene and was craving cookies, so I decided to try healthy chocolate chip cookies. While kneading the dough, I noticed it was crumbly and pretty dry. The dough smelled great (as well as my kitchen) but when I checked the cookies 8-minutes into baking, they had not started flattening. Help anyone??? I'd really like some cookies without a side of guilt :)

Hi S Sutton, That's interesting that these cookies didn't flatten for you. I haven't modified the recipe and make it often with consistently flat results. Have you had your oven temperature verified with a third party oven thermometer? I also haven't tested this recipe with other margarine manufacturers so perhaps this can make a difference in dough consistency too. Feel free to reach out to me if you'd like to troubleshoot this further.

These cookies are very good. I've never been able to get the flax seed.water combo just right before - thanks for that ;) My cookies didn't spread out they stayed almost in a ball! I'm wondering if it's the sugar. I use vegan cane sugar and it's a lot thicker than regular refined sugar. Do you have any ideas on where to find vegan sugar that is more refined?

Owner's reply

Hi rmommy,

I'm sorry these cookies didn't spread for you. It's most likely not your sugar that caused the issue. The only thing I can think of is that perhaps your oven was at a different temperature or you were using a brand of margarine that is different to what this recipe was designed with. I tested it with Earth Balance and my Vegan Butter so it should provide consistent results. Feel free to reach out to me if you'd like to troubleshoot this further.

just recently started following a vegan diet in our household and i am trying to incorporate "familiar" non-vegan recipes. chocolate chip cookies are a necessity in this home. this recipe is not only easy to follow and quick, but tasty too! the only snag i ran into was the cookies coming out extra crunchy. with my first batch i followed the directions to a t...7.5 min then rotate the sheet then 7.5 min more. too crunchy for my liking. the second batch i shaved off one min per rotation. still crunchy. my third batch i let them bake for 5 min then rotated then 5 min more and they were chewy. :) win. just watch and adjust times as to your liking. thank you!

My 10 year old egg-allergic son declares this the best cookie of his life! I made some slight adjustments to the recipe based on our needs, tastes, and what was in the house (used butter, brown sugar only and no molasses, no cinnamon) but I feel it was still close enough to the original to judge that this is a fantastic cookie with both a soft chewy texture and great chocolate chip cookie flavor.

everything about this cookie is perfect, from the crispy outside and melt-in-your-mouth center, to the depth of flavor from the molasses and cinnamon. thanks for sharing! although I think next time I will double the chocolate chips and bake for a shorter time for a softer cookie.

Best vegan cookie texture ever! Other recipes I've tried come out too cakey but this cookie was a dynamic dream. Nice and crispy on the edges with a chewy center. I wish I could comment on how chewy they were the next day, but sadly, they were gone shortly after cooling. So good! The only change I made was not adding cinnamon since I've had in it other chocolate chip recipes and didn't love for it.

These are the most delicious cookies ever! I followed the recipe exactly and they came out perfectly. Even my non-vegan boyfriend was impressed (he usually hates vegan baked goods). The golden flax seeds add a subtle nutty flavor and the cinnamon level was perfect. I will be making these as gifts! Definitely be sure to spread the cookies far enough apart for baking, though, as mine spread more than I expected.

I made these last night and they are great! I substituted spelt flour for all purpose, and used brown flax seeds. They are still chewy today too...I stored them in a tightly sealed plastic container. The addition of cinnamon really took them to a new level!
