Easy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies


Easy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Even if we are vegans and probably more aware than others of what we put in our mouths, we too have a sweet tooth that needs to be satisfied once in a while, right? And what is more satisfying when the craving starts than cookies? At least for me they are much more tempting than candy, and I definitely prefer spending time making them at home than going to the store and buy ready made ones. Why? Because then you know for sure what’s in them! Only the simple ingredients you use at home, and none of those additives and preservatives you find in the ones you buy at the grocery store.

Soooo, here comes a recipe for truly easy vegan chocolate chip cookies! πŸ˜€ (Make sure you’re alone at home when doing them, so you don’t have to share… πŸ˜‰

Β You need:
  • 3/4 cup raw cane sugar/coconut sugar (half of each)Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies from the oven
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tbsps canola oil
  • 1/4 cup oat milk (or other plant milk)
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder + 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3.5 ounces dark chocolate chips
How to prepare:

Turn your oven on at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Mix the oils, the oat milk, the sugar and the cornstarch in a bowl and whip it until it’s a semi thick cake mixture. Mix half of the flour with vanilla sugar and vanilla extract, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda. Mix it in with the cake mixture and beat it until there are no lumps left. Then add the rest of the flour and the chocolate chips. The mixture will be quite dense by now. Use your hands and form small balls that you put on a baking sheet. Press slightly on the ballsΒ  if you want the cakes to be more flat and thin. If you prefer them thicker, just leave the balls as they are. Bake for approximately 10 minutes.

Now, all that is left is to eat them… πŸ™‚ And then you can make some more!

    Oh my goodness… these cookies sound incredible!! I used to bake flapjacks quite a bit as a nice little snack, but when I think back, now, to all the rubbish that used to go into the ingredients, I feel a little disgusted that I actually ate them!! haha
    These actually look yummy AND they don’t look like they have too many sickening ingredients!! πŸ™‚

    Hi Katrin,
    I became interested in information about Vegan diets and recipes last year when I had to change my eating habits to prepare for two weeks at an Ayahuasca retreat in the Amazon.
    We were advised to go on the recommended diet a month in advance before arriving so I had to become very inventive at recipes that were very much of the Vegan type. It also meant eating simpler and more whole foods. With in two weeks I was surprised to be feeling lighter and clearer in my thinking.
    I was also pleasantly surprised by the diet at the retreat center prepared by the Peruvian Indian staff. It was simple but delicious! An added bonus to the greatest experience of my life and an aid to the healing powers of Ayahuasca. I felt wonderful after those two weeks in the jungle.
    I love your chocolate chip cookie recipe and it shows that eating a Vegan diet does not have to be dull!
    Thank you so much! Eric

      Thank you Eric! That sounds like an awesome experience to have, I would love myself to go on a retreat like that. My sister went to an Indian ashram some years ago, she still talks about it sounding very happy πŸ™‚

      Please come back here often, I will continuosly add new vegan recipes!

    I’m not vegan but I love cookies :).
    But you know that guilt feeling after finishing a bag of it lol, it’s not fun.
    This looks yummy but wondering how would it taste using wheat flour and an oat milk? I’m too curious so over the weekend I’ll try this and see how I go. And if kids wil like it. Pretty sure they would but.
    Thank you for the recipe and looking forward for more.

      You can rest assured that the kids will like the cookies πŸ™‚ You will probably not get any for yourself, so sneak away a couple before you offer them to the hungry wolves πŸ˜‰ These are actually the best vegan or nonvegan chocolate chips cookies I have had, I’m so happy my daughter came up with the recipe. It’s a good thing we have to bake them in order to have any, otherwise we would eat far too many!!

    hello Rosenbo , being a devout carnivore ( i love my meat) it was interesting for me to read about the vegan life and how you can still be healthy but not eat any meat , having been a body builder for many years i have been lead to believe that i could only grow by taking in as much protein as possible by eating meat , but checking out your recipes for beginners it gave me some ideas to maybe cut down on eating so much meat , i have thought about changing my diet for a long time now ( not cutting out meat totally ) but just did not know what or how to cook just veggies and feel satisfied , i will give some of your recipes a shot thanks for the good advice !!

    THis recipe looks delicious! Vegan foods sound really interesting in of themselves, and I’m willing to try new things. Though I’m no vegan, but as long as it’s delicious, it’s good for me. Recipe is very informative and detailed for home cooks and possibly chefs wanting to go green in terms of culinary.

    1. Katrin Post author

      Hi there! You can trust me, they ARE soooo delicious πŸ™‚ They don’t last long once they’re taken out of the oven.

      I hope everyone can find inspiration from my recipes, home cooks as well as chefs. Shortly I will add some christmas recipes πŸ™‚

    What is vanilla sugar? I’ve never heard of that before. Is it sugar that has been extracted from a vanilla plant? Or is it normal sugar that has been flavored with vanilla essence?

    I must admit, though, these cookies do look extremely tempting. I can imagine them being extremely more-ish. I’m glad to see the use of coconut oil, as that is a very healthy oil to use.

    1. Katrin Post author

      Hi! Vanilla sugar is not as exotic as sugar being extracted from the vanilla orchid I’m afraid πŸ™‚ It’s simply common sugar with either artificial vanilla flavor or real vanilla seeds. You can easily make your own, Nnw that I think of it it would be great to put such a recipe here at vegan recipes for beginners! Thank’s for the idea πŸ˜‰

      Coconut oil is fabulous, I love it since there are so many uses for it, and it is as you say very healthy!

      Thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚

    These sound delicious! Coconut oil is a great substitute for so many animal products for vegans, and everything still tastes yummy.

    I’m not actually vegan, but when I was breastfeeding my son who had a cows milk allergy, I was following a lot of vegan recipes. I’m now pregnant with number 2 and slightly fearful he will have the same allergy, but at least i now have this recipe under my belt if I’m forced to avoid cows milk again! Can you recommend any vegan cookbooks too? I have a very sweet tooth so that is the part I struggled with the most as a total chocoholic!
