Tips for making Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

There are so easy to make, they barely need an explanation. But, since lots of you are new to baking and I want you to feel super confident when attempting any of my recipes, here are a couple of tips to set you up for cookie success:

  • Measure all your ingredients before you start.
  • Use a neutral oil, such as grapeseed (like I did) or coconut oil. If using coconut oil, melt it in the microwave in a heatproof bowl, and let it cool before using.
  • Sift the coconut sugar because it tends to clump up.
  • After you’re done combining all the ingredients, use your hands to fully incorporate the chocolate chips. And to make the 6 dough balls, it’s so much easier.
  • This cookie dough is not like traditional dough. It looks a little oily but it turns out perfect!

Substitutes for these Small Batch Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • If you don’t have dietary restrictions, you can use regular milk and standard chocolate chips.
  • For gluten free, use a 1-1 baking gluten free flour such as Bob’s Red Mill.
  • You can sub coconut sugar for light brown sugar, in equal amounts.
  • If you don’t have coconut or grapeseed oil, you can use vegetable oil (not my favorite), olive oil (but taste might change slightly) or butter (regular or vegan)

Small batch of perfectly soft vegan chocolate chip cookies with crispy edges and puddles of melted chocolate.


  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (or light brown sugar), sifted
  • 2 1/2 tbsp neutral oil, such as grapeseed* or coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp nut/plant based milk, I used almond milk
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips (vegan)**


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and whisk to combine.
  3. Add in the coconut sugar, oil and nut milk. If using melted coconut oil, let it cool slightly before adding. Using a spatula, fold to combine the ingredients until there are no crumbs.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips. The mixture will be thick unlike traditional cookie dough so it’s easier to mix with your hands. Shape the dough into 6 balls and place on baking tray.
  5. Bake for 12-14 minutes until golden. Let cool for 5 minutes until they harden a bit. Enjoy!


*I used grapeseed oil from La Tourangelle.

**I went heavy on the chocolate chips, feel free to add more or less! I like Enjoy Life for vegan/dairy free chocolate chips.

  1. I mean, these are freaking amazing! Who knew they were vegan and dairy free. Best cookies I’ve ever made. We sprinkled a little bit of kosher salt on the top when they came out of the oven too.

      1. I added a lil extra salt and a small handful of shredded coconut – awesome. Great base recipe – Thanks!

  2. These were incredible!! So good with some sea salt sprinked on top. I put my dough in the fridge beforehand and because of this they didn’t spread very much, but they were amazing either way!

  3. You have no idea how many vegan chocolate chip cookie recipes I have tried but these ones were by far the best! I’ve tried everything from vegan butter to aquafaba but it turns out simple ingredients give the best results. This recipe was loved by all my non-vegan family. Thank you!

  4. Hi! These cookies are amazing. I made them as written and they are so chocolatey delicious. So much that I made a second batch to freeze. I wouldn’t change a thing. Thanks for the recipe, Rosana!

  5. These cookies were amazing!! I doubled the recipe and reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup and got nothing but compliments!

  6. Delicious! Cut this in half and added a bit extra milk since dough was a bit dry. Awesome! This is a keeper for SURE.
