Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies ... Mrs. Fields Has Nothing on Me!

If you happen to love chocolate chip cookies, and also happen to be vegan or want to consume less saturated fat and cholesterol, this is the best chocolate chip cookie you're going to find. I tried several different recipes and this one produced a perfectly sweet, delicious cookie with a nice crust on the bottom and soft chewy center. My husband, who isn't vegan, demands that I make a batch for him every week, and now he even prefers my chocolate chip cookies to Mrs. Fields'. I hope you are as enamored by these cookies as we are.

Here's the recipe:

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 Earth Balance (vegan) Buttery Sticks
3/4 cup vegan granulated sugar
3/4 cup vegan brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbsp. Ener-G egg replacer
4 tbsp. water
2 cups vegan chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. In a large bowl, beat Ener-G egg replacer with water until fluffy and foamy. Add butter, vanilla, granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat some more until creamy. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes and remove to wire racks to cool completely.

After the cookies have cooled, and you have eaten your half dozen, store the rest in an air tight BPA-free container. I keep a Brown Sugar Bear in my cookie container since it keeps the cookies from getting hard and stale.

As you can see, these vegan cookies are simple to make, and the best part about making them is that you can taste, taste, taste the cookie dough and not have to worry about getting sick from eating raw eggs.

I serve my vegan cookies with cold soy, rice or almond milk. I must warn you, though ... these cookies are addictive, just ask my husband!

Till we sweet again,

The Vegan Voice

  1. I am sure they are delicious, but the concept of vegan sugar simply eludes me! As far as I know, we get sugar from sugar cane or beet, so how vegan is that!? I love chocolate chip cookies very much as well!

  3. This would be perfect for me! I can't really eat dairy but the only problem is I can hardly find any dairy free baking goods around here! I'll have to do some hunting and then try this out :) Thanks for the ad add btw, great blog!
