- 2 and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (375 g)
- 1 cup brown, cane or coconut sugar (180 g)
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt (optional)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened plant milk of your choice (125 ml), I used soy milk
- 1/4 cup coconut oil (65 ml), melted
- 2 flax eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
- 3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips (130 g)
- Preheat the oven to 350ºF or 180ºC.
- Combine the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl (flour, sugar, baking soda and salt).
- Add the liquid ingredients to the large mixing bowl (milk, oil, flax eggs and vanilla extract) and stir until well combined.
- Add the chocolate chips and stir until they’re evenly incorporated. Refrigerate the dough for about 30 minutes.
- Now it’s time to make your cookies! I used a cookie scoop, but feel free to use a regular spoon or even your hands. Fill the scoop with dough and just press and release onto a lined baking sheet. Press down slightly to flatten.
- Bake for about 15 minutes or until the cookies are golden at the edges, but still a little underdone in the center.
- Remove from the oven and let the cookies rest on the hot baking sheet for at least 5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack or a serving plate.
- Keep leftovers in a sealed container at room temperature for 5-7 days or in the freezer for a month.
- You can use any other kind of flour, but you may need to add more or less of it. If you want gluten-free cookies, I’d add oat flour and buckwheat or rice flour (half and half). Add more or less quantity if needed.
- Use yeast instead of baking soda if you don’t want it, or even omit this ingredient. In that case, the vegan cookies will not be that soft on the inside.
- Feel free to use any kind of sugar, although I’ve never tried this recipe with liquid sweetener.
- Coconut oil works very well for this kind of recipes, but any other sweet- flavored oil will do. Substitute the oil for nut butter if you’d like, but in that case you’ll probably need to add more milk.
- You can also use chopped chocolate instead of chocolate chips, but it might melt and the cookies won’t be as good-looking.
- You can eat these vegan cookies any time of the day: for breakfast or even as a dessert or snack.
