HOW TO MAKE EGGLESS CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

With no chill time required, you are less than an hour away from fresh out of the oven cookie.

Here’s what you need to make them–

Ingredients

  • ground flax meal – this acts as a binder for the cookies just as the egg would
  • filtered water – once you mix the water with the flax meal they will gel together to become the “egg”
  • vegan butter – I use stick form like Earth Balance
  • organic brown sugar 
  • organic cane sugar
  • vanilla extract 
  • all purpose flour or gluten free all purpose flour or 1:1 – if you using gluten free all purpose baking flour, make sure it has a xanthan gum added to the flour mix
  • baking powder
  • baking soda
  • vegan chocolate – I like to use a variety of dark chocolate
  • finely ground sea salt
  • flaky sea salt

Here’s how to make these vegan chocolate chip cookies–

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 F and in a small bowl, stir together the flax meal and water and then set it aside to gel, about five minutes.
  2. In another bowl, use a hand held mixer or a stand alone mixer to cream together the vegan butter and sugars. Add in the flax mixture and continue mixing until well combined and then mix in the vanilla extract.
  3. In another bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt until combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix just until the dough comes together but a few bits of flour remain. Add in the chopped chocolate and fold until combined.
  4. Separate the dough into 10 evenly sized balls and place them on two baking sheets lined with parchment paper about 2″ apart.
  5. Bake the cookies for 8 minutes and then remove them from the oven and raise your center rack a few inches. Drop the baking sheets onto the counter from about 4-5″ inches to deflate the cookies. Bake for an additional 6-8 minutes and edges are golden. Remove and sprinkle with flaky sea salt. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before carefully transferring them to a cooling rack to continue to cool.

What is the secret to making soft cookies?

My favorite kind of cookie is has soft centers and crispy edges and my secret is to remove them from the oven as soon as the center has set. They will continue to cook as they cool.

Hi there, these cookies look absolutely mouthwatering. Just wondering if I may substitute the flour with almond flour, oat flour or even buckwheat flour? Many thanks and, Happy New Year 😊

I just made these and they turned out so yummy! Can’t even tell they’re vegan but looks like the step with adding in the flax seed was skipped or did I miss it? I added it in after mixing the butter and sugars. Anyway, thanks for the recipe! Will definitely be making these again.

Oh my yum! Made these yesterday and they are probably the most satisfying GF chocolate chip cookie recipe I’ve tried to date! Few tweaks: didn’t have brown sugar on hand so made my own with 1/2 sugar and 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup. Bobs all purpose GF flour, added xantham gum, regular chocolate chips, and I just baked them for 13 minutes without the steps you described. Soooo delicious! Thank you!

These were delicious! I think these were the best chocolate chunk cookie recipe I’ve made…and that’s including my non-vegan days! I used King Arthur’s GF Flour (pretty much the same as Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 Baking Flour, it includes xantham gum). Only small change I made was adding 1/4 cup of cane sugar instead of 1/3, perhaps to make myself feel (slightly!) better about making cookies for the 3rd time this week…what can I say, it’s quarantine! It made 9 jumbo cookies, and baked them for just a few minutes longer than the recipe. Thank you for such a delicious and easy recipe!
