These are the best vegan chocolate chip cookies you will ever eat. Once you try this recipe I think you’ll agree. If you don’t believe me, they’ve been approved by non-vegans, and that’s a big deal. This recipe has been inspired by one of my favourite vegan YouTubers, ‘The Vegan Zombie.’ (Look him up, he’s cool.) Think Subway chocolate chip cookies: Firm and crispy on the outside but so incredibly soft and gooey on the inside, with the perfect dough-to-chocolate-chip ratio. I try my hardest to refrain from eating all the cookie dough, but you know, my willpower doesn’t often stretch that far (and the cookie dough is seriously irresistible…)
If I haven’t enticed you enough already, here’s something that should: These cookies are a one-bowl-wonder and only take 10 minutes in the oven. Have I got your attention yet? (I should note that these cookies are not healthy in any way, shape or form. But who cares! Live a little.)
- 2/3 cup vegan butter, room temperature/kind of melted (Nuttelex is my butter of choice)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup raw sugar
- Egg replacer equivalent to 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup soy milk
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 1/4 cup plain flour
- 3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips/ chopped dark chocolate
- Preheat oven to 200c and prepare 2 baking trays with baking paper.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and both sugars. Mix well.
- Add vanilla, egg replacer, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix again.
- Add the flour and soy milk. Use your hands to create a gooey cookie dough.
- Fold through the chocolate chips.
- Form balls of cookie dough and flatten onto your baking trays.
- Cook for 9-10 minutes. Adjust this time based on how firm you like your cookies.
(NOTE: These cookies harden as they cool.)
- Allow to cool for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack.
- Store in an airtight container (though I think they’ll be eaten before this step).
Makes approximately 20 (depending on how big you make them)
There’s really not much more to say about these babies. Just make them. And apologies to anyone who suffers a severe food coma after devouring the entire batch. You’re welcome.
