Let me introduce you to my new cookie obsession: these vegan chocolate chip cookies.

One of the most delicious cookies I have ever put in my mouth! 

Insanely soft and ooey gooey on the inside, and outsides with just enough crispy edges. 

It’s basically the best vegan cookie ever.

At the time of writing this post, I believe I have seven different chocolate chips cookie variations on my blog.

I realized the other day that I had not yet posted a vegan one yet, and so the idea of these vegan chocolate chip cookies was born!

How to make vegan chocolate chip cookies

Traditional chocolate chip cookies use eggs, so to replace that I used a combination of baking powder and unsweetened applesauce, which ended up being perfect.

You don’t need any eggs or milk for these chocolate chip cookies and they are so rich and full of flavor that you wouldn’t guess they are vegan!

I’m normally a goody two shoes that never eats the raw cookie dough.

Not judging anyone who does, but I’ve always been extra cautious to wash my hands every time I cook with eggs.

When I remembered that the batter would be vegan, I took a bit to taste and OH MY WORD.

So this is what I’ve been missing all of these years!

I now understand the obsession with eating raw cookie dough. It was ridiculously good I had a hard time forcing myself to just bake it into cookies!

Tips for baking your vegan chocolate chip cookies

I used an ice cream scoop to drop the batter onto a baking sheet. I had a nonstick sheet, so I did not grease it first.

If you are worried about sticking, a quick spray of olive oil would do the trick.

I was shocked at how delicious these were!

I gave one to my husband without telling him what they were, and he thought that I had made a batch of my classic chocolate chip cookies.

These are INSANELY flavorful and shot straight to the top of my all time favorite cookies.

I used some lighter ingredients like whole wheat pastry flour, unsweetened applesauce (to replace the eggs), and coconut oil.

These cookies, like any dessert, are to be enjoyed in moderation. 

When I’ve had a rough day, I grab a few of these dough balls from the freezer and bake them up fresh!

Vegan butter and coconut oil make these cookies stay soft even once cooled.

My favorite cookie texture is chewy. Warm or cold, these are amazing!

Those crispy edges are to die for.

Hi—these cookies look great! I have a question about coconut oil—do you measure 1/2 cup in the solid form and then melt it, Or melt first & measure 1/2 cup in liquid form? I haven’t baked with coconut oil before and look forward to trying your recipe! Thank you!

Do these have a coconut flavor at all from the coconut oil? Thanks!

I do not taste any! If you eat the batter raw you will taste it, but once baked I cannot detect it.

I would like to make these delicious sounding cookies for my vegan daughter and my gluten-free daughter. Could I sub the flour for Red Mill gluten free whole grain oatmeal flour without having to add Xanthum gum?

These are seriously the BEST vegan chocolate chip cookies I have ever had.....and I've tried quite a few recipes. My family loved cookie dough prevegan....and this dough is actually better than traditional dough....in our opinion. It's light and fluffy! The baked cookies have an excellent texture....even after a day or two. (they don't get as hard as a rock),..but they typically don't last very long in our house! They also form beautifully shaped cookies. So....disclaimer....I replaced the whole wheat flour with regular organic all purpose unbleached flour from Costco and I also added a tablespoon of vanilla to keep the taste more similar to the "Tollhouse" recipe. Vegan chocolate chips from Costco are amazing too. Better double the recipe...These cookies won't last! Thanks for the great recipe!!
