Servings: 14
Author: Ciarra Siller


  • 1 tbsp ground flax
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 3/4 cup gluten free baking flour
  • 1/4 cup Saco Pantry Organic Cocoa Powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 5 tbsp vegan butter soft
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/3 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • flakey sea salt for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small bowl, stir together the flax and water until combined and then set it aside for 5-10 minutes to gel. In a bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In another bowl, use a hand held mixer to beat the vegan butter, brown sugar and cane sugar together until well blended. Add in the vanilla and mix until combined. Finally add in the flax mixture and continue mixing until well blended.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until no dry spots remain. The batter will be on the wet side and that's ok. Use a 1 1/2 inch cookie scooper to make the cookie dough balls and place them on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes. The cookies should look slightly undone when you take them out of the oven but they will continue to cook and firm up as they cool.
  • Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to continue cooling for 10-15 mintues before sprinkling with sea salt and serving.

Do you think coconut sugar would work as a substitute for the white sugar?

I made them amix of coconut sugar and brown and used coconut oil with some light butter and it turned so good, but I feel like it should be less than a tsp of paking soda it turned with me to a caky texture. but overall I love it 🥰

Hi this looks amazing! Would it be possible to use melted coconut oil instead of vegan butter?

What did you use for baking cookies? An OTG or Microwave? What is best?

Such a great recipe! These turned out perfectly. For anyone in Ireland, I used the Stork baking block in place of vegan butter and it worked wonderfully. Thank you for sharing this recipe😀

The one thing I really love about all of your recipes is that they are just so doable! I am a completely inexperienced baker but I feel like a pro when I use your recipes because they always turn out sooo good! Just turned vegan and my husband can never tell the difference when I make these cookies!
