This might be the first time I’ve used an all purpose flour on this blog but as I mentioned before, I am not gluten or refined sugar free but prefer it when I have the choice. Friday night I had a serious cookie craving and was inspired to create something new but… I really just wanted a chocolate chip cookie. Like a classic chocolate chip cookie so I made these vegan chocolate chip cookies and they did not disappoint.

  • 1 cup all purpose flour organic if possible
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar organic if possible
  • 1/4 cup white sugar organic if possible
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp flax meal
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp vegan butter room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1 vegan chocolate bar chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350 F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    In a small bowl, stir together the flax meal and the water and set aside. 
    In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, chocolate chips and half of the chopped chocolate bar and set aside.
  • In another bowl, beat the butter until light and whipped. Add in the brown sugar, white sugar and vanilla and beat until light and fluffy and then beat for another 30 seconds for good measure. Add in the flax meal until incorporated. Finally fold in the dry ingredients and use a rubber spatula to incorporate just until no dry spots remain. Try not to over mix. 
  • Use a 1 1/2 inch cookie scooper to drop cookie mounds onto the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes or just until the edges start to brown. Don’t over bake. 
  • Remove from oven and immediately stick chopped pieces of chocolate into the tops of the cookies. I like to insert them into the cracks if they form. Let cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack to continue cooling before serving.
