Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Ingredients
The basic ingredients for making vegan chocolate chip cookies are:
Mix together the dry ingredients. Form a wheel in the center of your dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Stir the ingredients together until combined. Roll the ball of dough and let it rest until it is about twice the size. Lightly dust the cookie dough start making small balls. Place the small cookie dough balls on to a baking sheet, carefully spacing them so that they have enough space in between.
Baking the vegan chocolate chip cookies are easy; all you have to do is put the baking into the oven and preheat it to 350 degrees. Depending on your vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe, it may require only a few minutes or up to 15 minutes. As soon as it’s ready, the vegan chocolate chip cookies will be golden brown and you’ll know because they will look crisp around the edges. They will still be soft inside and there won’t be a crunch. They’ll be chewy yet moist, just like the original recipe was. You can eat the yummy cookies without any guilt!

Tips on How to Make the Best Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
If you’re planning on making these vegan chocolate chip cookies from scratch, you’ll need a cookie cutter and preferably a cookie thermometer. The recipes usually list the temperature requirement of the oven but, personally, I find 10 minutes as the ideal baking time. If your oven timer is not set properly, the cookies won’t come out at the desired temperature. If your oven timer is too short, you run the risk of the cookies being undercooked, which is unappetizing and unhealthy.
A traditional cookie recipe makes use of both white and brown sugar. You may also want to consider using cocoa powder alternative. Although, I personally prefer to use vegan chocolate chips. However, if you are substituting it with regular chips, don’t forget to add the extra salt mentioned in this recipe.
Using a vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe with gluten and wheat flour is highly advised as it gives the cookies a thicker texture. Flour mixture is often added to make the cookies firm, but it doesn’t provide any flavor. By using a vegan cookie recipe with flour, you allow yourself to incorporate more gluten and whole-grain flour that contribute to a tastier and crunchier cookie.
As an alternative to using fresh lemon juice, substitute with orange juice. You can even add some orange zest in for a tangier flavor. Any combination of these ingredients will result in a great tasting treat that everyone will enjoy. As an alternative to chia, I like to use freshly ground flax seed which has a nutty, but not oily flavor. Another way to make them more interesting without using chia seeds is to use lemon juice coupled with maple syrup or equal parts of brown sugar and water.
As you can see, this vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe is super-simple. It uses common, healthy ingredients that are not only good for your health but also tastes great. Even better, since you don’t have to worry about using tons of butter, you can make the cookie dough recipe tastier than most store-bought versions. As long as you remember to mix all of the ingredients in the exact order, this is one recipe that is well-suited for just about everyone, vegan, or not.
