  • Kid-Friendly: I love getting my kids involved in the kitchen as much as possible. They love helping me mix the ingredients and portion out the cookie dough, making this a fun family activity.

The Ingredients

Vegan chocolate chip cookie ingredients.
  • Coconut oil: Instead of butter, we use coconut oil in this recipe to keep the cookies moist and delicious.
  • Brown sugar: Adds sweetness and a hint of caramel flavor.
  • Plant-based milk: Any plant-based milk will work perfectly for these chocolate chip cookies. Almond milk, oat milk, soy milk or even rice milk are great choices. 
  • Vanilla extract: Adding a touch of vanilla deepens the flavor of the cookies.
  • All-purpose flour: The base of your cookie dough.
  • Baking powder and baking soda: These ingredients aid in the rising process and help with texture.
  • Kosher salt: Adding a touch of salt balances out the sweetness.
  • Vegan chocolate morsels: The star of the show! You can use any chocolate chips you prefer, semi sweet or dark chocolate. Just make sure they’re vegan.

Step 4: Using a mini cookie scoop or one tablespoon measure, scoop out dough onto a Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet and gently press down to flatten a bit. For larger cookies, use a 1/4 cup measure to scoop out the dough.

Step 5: Bake for 12 minutes or until the edges are golden. The centers may look slightly underdone, but they will firm up as they cool. For larger cookies, bake for 14 minutes.

Tips and Tricks

  • Don’t overmix: When combining the wet and dry ingredients, mix until just combined. Overmixing can result in tougher cookies.
  • Substitute the Flour: Feel free to use a cup-for-cup gluten-free flour in place of the all purpose flour to make these cookies gluten-free. Or take it up a notch and make my Gluten Free Vegan Miso Chocolate Chip Cookies!
  • Chill the dough: If you have time, chill the dough for 30 minutes before baking. This helps prevent the cookies from spreading too much.
  • Experiment with add-ins: Feel free to add nuts, dried fruit, or even a sprinkle of flaky sea salt on top of the cookies before baking for an extra touch of flavor.
  • Add to School Lunch: These vegan cookies are a wholesome treat to add to a kid’s school lunch!

FAQs

Can I make vegan chocolate chip cookie dough ahead of time? 

Absolutely! You can make the dough and refrigerate it for up to 48 hours before baking. Just let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes before scooping and baking.

How do I store vegan chocolate chip cookies? 

Store these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. For longer storage, place them in labeled freezer bags and freeze for up to 3 months. You can also freeze the dough in balls before baking and then bake from frozen. Just add 2 minutes to the baking time.

What coconut oil is best for vegan cookies?

Both refined and unrefined coconut oil will work for this vegan cookie recipe. If you don’t want a coconut flavor, opt for refined coconut oil. For a hint of coconut, use unrefined.
