The vegan version of the traditional chocolate chip cookies. Same great taste but without the use of eggs and dairy!
- 1/2 cup (100g) – granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup (150g) – brown sugar, lightly packed
- 1 teaspoon (5g) – salt
- 1/2 cup (110g) – vegetable oil (can sub for refined coconut oil, melted)
- 1/4 cup + 1tbsp (75g) – non-dairy milk (I used soy, can sub for alternative milks)
- 1 teaspoon (5g) – vanilla extract
- 2 cups (240g) – all-purpose flour (sifted)
- 1/2 teaspoon (5g) – baking soda (sifted)
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (170g), I used Guittard’s Super Cookie Chips https://amzn.to/3gKcgjZ (or 50/50 mix of two different types of chocolate)
- flakey sea salt, optional (for sprinkling)
- In a medium-sized bowl, whisk granulated sugar, brown sugar, salt, and oil until well combined.
- Next, mix in non-dairy milk and vanilla extract until sugar has dissolved.
- Sift in flour and baking soda. Then gently fold it in with a spatula, until you don’t see any dry flour. Careful not to overmix!
- Add in the chocolate chips, and fold it in evenly.
- Cover the bowl and chill the cookie dough in the fridge for 1 hour. If you do not have time to bake on the same day, you also have the option to chill overnight. This will develop even more flavor in the cookies! DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP. The results will be vastly different.
- While you wait, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat, and preheat your oven at 350° Fahrenheit.
- With a large cooking/ ice cream scoop, place the dough onto the lined baking sheet leaving 2 inches apart. Sprinkle with a little flakey sea salt.
- Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown. They will look underdone, however, once they’ve had time to cool they will firm up.
- Remove from oven and let the cookies for 5 minutes on the pan, and then move them to finish cooling on a cooling rack, and enjoy!
- Mixing two types of chocolate gives the cookies a better depth of flavor, for example, semi-sweet and bittersweet chocolate.
- Using Guittard’s Super Cookie Chips really give it’s “chunky-ness”, you can sub for any other chocolate wafers you can find at your local grocery store. If you can’t find any chocolate wafers, regular chocolate chips will do! It will still taste just as good!
