These cookies are called the best for a reason! The Best Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies are delicious cookies that everyone can and will enjoy. The almond flavor is such a wonderful change from regular, run of the mill cookies. I was sceptical the first time I tried these cookies. My friend Marcel mentioned years ago these cookies were vegan and I assumed incorrectly that they wouldn’t pass my awesome cookie test. I loved them. They are different that is for sure. But different in a good way. Or should I say yummy way!
These cookies always disappear right off the counter. I was told these cookies will last for three or four days in an airtight container but in our house they never last that long. The Best Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies is a recipe that we make over and over again. I believe you will too!
Have a look at the recipe right below!
The Best Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/3 cups light brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted, cooled
- 6 tablespoons water, room temperature
- 1/3 cup almond butter, creamy, unsalted
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips or chunks, semi-sweet
- 1/3 cup almond slivers, if desired
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine brown sugar, melted coconut oil, water, almond butter, and vanilla. Stir until well blended. Gradually add flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Once combined, add chocolate chips or chunks. This next step sounds odd but be prepared to do it. Cover your bowl with some plastic wrap and leave it out, at room temperature, for at least an hour.
Divide cookie dough into 16 equal sized piles. They do not have to be perfectly round. They look like blobs, about 3 tablespoons in size on my baking sheets. Prepare a rimmed baking skeet with parchment paper and place 8 piles on each sheet, evenly spaced apart. Prepare the other baking sheet while your first is baking. They will take between 11 and 14 minutes. The edges will start to brown and the middle of the cookie will look uncooked. Do not worry. Allow cookies to cool on their sheet. Serve and enjoy!
