These really are the Best Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies!  You won’t be able to eat just one!


  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour, GF AP flour would probably work too
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup softened vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cane sugar or granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water, let sit for 2 minutes)
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chunks or chocolate chips, or more if you like!
  • Flaky sea salt (optional)


  1. Prepare your vegan egg and set aside until ready to use.  Mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Next, add your softened butter to a large bowl, along with the brown and white sugar.  Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.  You want to make sure the butter is completely softened at room temperature.
  3. Add in the vegan egg and vanilla extract and beat again until everything is combined.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the butter and sugar mixture and beat until everything comes together and you can easily form the batter into a ball.
  5. Add in the chocolate chips and mix until they’re completely incorporated.
  6. You can bake these cookies immediately if you want to, but I prefer to chill the dough for at least an hour before baking.  Dough can be chilled up to about 5 days in the refrigerator if needed.
  7. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Form the dough into balls, any size you like, and place on a baking sheet.  Bake cookies until the bottom is just browned but the top still looks a little bit underdone (they will finished cooking as they cool and this will ensure that they are gooey on the inside).  Cookies will take about 10-20 minutes total, depending on how big you make them. I like to take the cookies out after about 10 minutes and bang the cookie tray on the top of the oven so that they aren’t quite as thick.  Sometimes I do that a few times during the cooking process.
  8. Remove cookies from the oven and place on a cooling rack until ready to eat.


Recipe makes 12-20 cookies, it just depends on how big you make them.
