BEST OIL-FREE VEGAN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
Cookies are a man’s best friend, a woman’s worst enemy and a dog’s most desired dropped-food.
Here in the plant based vegan world, only 2 of those hold true. Can you guess which one gets eliminated? If you guessed the second one, you’d be correct! Vegan cookies are a woman’s least enemy. In terms of fearing that one batch of “chips ahoy” will make you gain 10 pounds, these oil-free vegan chocolate chip cookies will never feed that fear. I’m not suggesting if you eat a whole batch yourself every day that you won’t gain some weight, but I am saying these will not harm your body the way non-vegan cookies can.
I have honestly eaten an entire batch of these cookies, both after baking them and once before I could even roll the dough out into cookie balls😩 LOL. I have not suffered nearly the consequences as I had upon eating cookie after cookie when they were made with eggs, dairy, and other animal products. A bloated belly was the only short-term discomfort, but waking up with the same energy as usual and a belly flatter than the day before, gives me all the reason to convince and persuade you into making your cookies without all the junk too!
I have been searching for years for a recipe that is first of all, delicious; secondly, made with simple, cheap ingredients; and third, a recipe easy enough I don’t have to think hard when I’m turning into a ravenous cookie monster!😄
Here’s my list of requirements I have when it comes to homemade cookies:
super soft and moist
just as chewy the next day
chocolaty but not too chocolaty
sweet but can’t taste every morsel of sugar
the cookie dough is almost too good to bake
Those aren’t listed based on importance… the last one is almost my most essential necessity. This recipe is my perfect combination based on a bunch of other recipes I’ve experimented with through the years. It meets all the requirements listed, even though the 2nd requirement is nearly impossible to test😄!
I’ve tried lowering the sugar, trying other naturally sweet ingredients and I seem to keep coming back to this combination here. If you desire less processed sugar, try adding in dates.
Cookies are great for:
dipping in milk
making new friends
watching netflix with
You can eat half the batch or the whole thing, you will be free of judgement and of harmful ingredients.
Serve these with non-dairy milk, there’s no better way!

5 minPrep Time
10 minCook Time
15 minTotal Time
- 1 tbsp flax seeds
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 1/4 cup all-purpose unbleached flour (different flours will produce different outcomes)
- 1/3 cup raw sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp Crystal salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/4 cup non-dairy milk
- 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350°F
- In a small dish, mix flax seeds with water and set to the side for 5 minutes to make the flax "egg"
- In a separate bowl mix the flour, sugars, baking soda, baking powder and salt
- Add in slowly the vanilla, maple syrup, flax "egg" and milk until well combined
- Stir in the chocolate chips
- Roll in tbsp sized balls and place them on non-stick baking mats and flatten them out a little with your palm
- Bake for 7-10 minutes (8 usually does the trick for me - they will be very soft when they first come out, but will harden up a little)
P.S. If you can manage to not eat these all the first day, wrap them up with a slice of bread and they’ll be softer the next day!
