Hi McKenzie,

This dough is a little more thick than traditional cookie dough. Try using a spoon to mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and if it becomes too thick to mix with the spoon, use your hands to "knead" the mixture into a dough.

All the vegan cookies I've made have turned out too fluffy and cake-like. These were perfectly chewy and delicious. I subbed 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour. Thanks!

These cookies are SO good! They taste just like the ones my mom used to make before we all became vegan. Thanks for the great recipe!

This was my first time making vegan chocolate chip cookies and this recipe turned out so delicious! I didn't have molasses so I used brown rice syrup and it turned out fine.

Do you think I could I sub honey for molasses in this recipe and produce desirable results? For science!! This is the only vegan cookie recipe I have ever seen that looks like it will pass the rigorous tests of my chocolate chip cookie snobbery :) Thanks a bunch, love and light

Hi misfitcupcake, the molasses are in the cookies to build on chewiness and add depth of flavor. I don't think honey would be as effective on both fronts but it is about 80% fructose which will hold onto moisture and increase chewiness by a moderate amount. Just not as much as molasses theoretically. They'll still probably turn out good with it though! -but obviously not be vegan.

This recipe looks great! My husband prefers whole wheat flour. Do you know if I could sub all or part of the all purpose flour without messing up the recipe? Also, can I switch the molasses out for maple syrup?

Thanks!

I really loved how these cookies turned out! Very delicious! I was wondering tho, for future reference, could the white flour and margarine be replaced with spelt flour and olive oil?

i've tried a few vegan choc. chip cookie recipes and these are BY FAR the best! i'll be making these from now on! i do have to admit that i lowered the amount of sugar to about 1 cup and they still tasted pretty sweet to me.

thanks so much for this recipe! :)

I have to cut out dairy, eggs, and nuts for my son who has allergies and its been an adjustment to not have the things I'm used to for his sake. Thank you for sharing this recipe! I've tried many others from boxes or from scratch and this one is the first that has the perfect texture (slightly crunchy edges with gooey center) and tastes like the real deal. I did have to add some extra splashes of water because my batter was very crumbly but they still came out excellent. THANK YOU!

Hi Vidya, You should be able to do a 1 to 1 replacement of the margarine and molasses with butter and honey. Good luck!

I have a vegan cook book with many cookie recipes however, no matter how many times I try baking them they always turn out not so great. This recipe was amazing! The cookies turn out great every time I make them. I have given them to friends and family, they always seem so surprised that the cookies are vegan. For some reason they think vegan food is un-tastful and bland, they just have not had good vegan food and I always show them with my favorite recipes how amazing vegan food can be. This recipe is a great one.

I really liked the texture of these cookies. They held up well and had a nice crunch and a good chewiness in the middle. However, the flax flavor was much too strong for me. I am new to vegan baking, so I wonder if I'm just not used to the taste of the flax meal, but next time I would use a different egg substitute. I would also double the molasses or switch to all brown sugar--I was looking for a deeper flavor.

Thanks for the input! I don't know the state of your flax seeds but the fats they contain are extremely susceptible to rancidity. It sounds like your flax seeds went a bit bad- it's pretty hard, if not impossible to taste flax in this recipe if your flax seeds are fresh. To make sure your flax sees don't go rancid, I recommend they be purchased whole, ground yourself and stored in the freezer for up to 6 months only. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts!

Everyone that tried these cookies was in love, whether they were vegan or not. I can't tell you how GREAT these cookies are. I've tried lots of vegan chocolate chip cookie recipes, some came close to the traditional, but this by far is the BEST (better than the original)!

I had to substitute ENER G egg replacer for the flax seed, but other than that, I followed the recipe to a T. I love your tip for placing the cookie dough. Tearing it in half and then reforming it really makes a perfectly shaped chunky cookie!

Thanks again Mattie. I simply love all your recipes! Can't wait to make this again. The first round disappeared within days!

Hi lauren, So glad to hear these were a hit and that they worked for you with Ener-G as a substitute. Thanks for sharing!

These cookies are AMAZING! I'm not a talented baker by any means, and vegan desserts usually end up disasterous for me. NOT these! For some reason I couldn't pull off the part about splitting the balls in 1/2 & layering them that way, the batter turned up a little to runny for that. But it didn't affect them. These taste comparable to the Tollhouse recipe. (One thing to be careful of, not all semi-sweet chocolate chips are vegan. Most of the packages I looked at contained milkfat.) What a delicious treat, so chewy & gooey at the same time! I shall be making some of these as holiday gifts for friends! :) Thank you you so much for sharing this recipe, I can't wait to try out more!
