Chewy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

These vegan chocolate chip cookies are the perfect cookie! A little bit crispy on the edges and nice and chewy at the center - just the way we like them around here.


Units Scale
  • 3 Tbs melted vegan butter or coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 Tbs unsweetened plant milk (I used soy)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips or chunks
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (optional but we love pecans)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, melt vegan butter or coconut oil in the microwave.
  3. Use a spoon to mix in the sugar for 2 minutes to cream together.
  4. Stir in the vanilla.
  5. Mix in the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.  The mixture will be dry and crumbly at this point.
  6. Stir in the milk and the dough will start to come together.  
  7. Get in there with some clean hands and incorporate the chocolate and nuts (if using).
  8. Use a cookie scoop to portion out 6 large or 12 small cookie onto a baking sheet lined with a silicon baking mat or parchment paper.
  9. Bake for 13-15 minutes.  If you make regular sized cookies 13 minutes should be fine, but larger ones may take 15 minutes.
  10. Remove from oven and let cool on baking pan for a few minutes.  They will look undercooked and very soft in the middle, but will firm up as they cool.
  11. Use a spatula to transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling down.
  12. Try not to eat them all at once!


  • If using nuts chop them up pretty small so you don't get large pieces in your cookie.  Unless that's your jam then rock on with your bad self.
  • You can use a 1/4 cup cookie scoop to make the larger size cookies.  That's what I did here.  It's basically an ice cream scoop.
