Vegan Chocolate Chip cookies…. most of the time they aren’t very soft and definitely not chewy because they don’t contain egg. Not these.

I found this amazing recipe off one of my favorite vegan blogs, Daily Garnish. I kept most of the recipe the same, but I slightly lowered the sugar content and upped the chocolate chips! Can one ever have enough chocolate chips?

I’ve made vegan chocolate chips cookies many many times, but I have never tried this recipe before. These cookies are the absolute BEST vegan cookies I have ever made. Best I have ever tasted even! They are soft and chewy just like the traditional non vegan tollhouse recipe. A must make for sure if you are a cookie lover!!

The cookie dough you can taste test as well because there are no raw eggs.

For me, this recipe made just over 2 dozen. After baking, I froze half the cookies. I grew up grabbing chocolate chip cookies from the freezer (my mom made dozens and dozens so we froze them often) and now I like to eat them that way! I would like to say it helps that they are frozen to avoid the temptation but they are perfect to just grab right out of the freezer and go – they are so chewy they aren’t really that hard to eat this way. Chase on the other hand, prefers his nuked for about 20 seconds- he thinks I am crazy for eating them frozen. Depends on your preference I suppose.

These will be gone before you know it! Frozen or not!

Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies adapted from Daily Garnish

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (I used whole wheat pastry flour)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup Earth Balance
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, loosely packed (I only had 1/4 cup, if you want lower sugar you could probably cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup each of cane and brown and they would still come out perfect, they are pretty sweet)
  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp non-dairy milk (I used So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used about 3/4 cup)

(These can be made with regular milk or butter if you don’t want them to be vegan.)

Directions:
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine dry ingredients (flours, baking soda, salt) in a medium mixing bowl and set aside.
  • In a stand mixer (or using a hand mixer), cream together Earth Balance with brown and cane sugars.
  • Once the sugar mixture is light and fluffy, add the banana, vanilla, and milk and beat until combined.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet, beating just until mixed.  Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Put 12 cookie dough balls on a greased cookie sheet (I used Spectrum Coconut Oil Cooking Spray). Press each cookie down a little to flatten, so they aren’t so round.
  • Bake for 10 minutes until the bottoms are browned and the tops are slightly golden.
  • Set aside on a cooling rack and let them cool before eating. Once they are set they get that nice chewy-ness to them. If you eat them before they have cooled, they might crumble apart a little.

My favorite cookies probably… ummm ever.
