Our secret ingredient to replace the egg in these cookies is applesauce It’s the perfect ingredient when baking cookies, quick breads and cakes for most recipes, if you just give it a try. 1/4 cup applesauce is equivalent to 1 egg. 

Baking vegan chocolate cookies is easy once you understand the basics of vegan baking. By using plant-based ingredients like dairy-free butter, flax eggs or applesauce, and plant-based milk in place of regular ingredients, you can create a delicious vegan cookie without compromising flavor or texture.

With a few simple tips, vegan baking can be a safe, delicious, and ethical way to enjoy a classic treat.

Ingredients You Need

Best Vegan Double Chocolate Cookies Recipe

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (For more more intense chocolate flavor, add 3 more tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, otherwise they will be more like milk chocolate flavor as is. Can also add 1-2 teaspoons espresso powder.)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 teaspoons pure chocolate or vanilla extract
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons all purpose flour or gluten free flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegan semi sweet chocolate chips or chunks + some for top of cookies Add more if you wish, these cookies are chocolatey.

How to Make the Best Vegan Double Chocolate Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line cookie sheet (s) with parchment paper.
  3. Using a mixer, cream butter until light and creamy for 2 minutes.
  4. Add in sugar and continuing creaming for 1-2 more minutes. Add in applesauce, mixing until fully incorporated into batter. Mix in cocoa powder until combined. Add in vanilla extract and mix.
  5. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt and beat together just until a chocolate dough starts to form. Then fold in the chocolate chips.
  6. Scoop cookie dough onto prepared baking pan using a tablespoon (small scoop) or 1 1/2 tablespoon (medium scoop) depending on size you wish to have. Leave room for the cookies to spread slightly. Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes. Gooier for 8 minutes. Cookies should be starting to firm up but still soft in the middle. Bake longer if you want more done cookies and if larger as well.
  7. Let cookies set on cookie tray for a couple of minutes before removing them to cool completely on a wire rack.

Baking Tips

  • Don’t overmix your cookie dough. Beat the dough together just until the flour streaks disappear, but no more. If you overmix, you will end up adding air to the dough, which causes the cookies to rise and then fall, leaving you with flat cookies.
  • Make sure to not over bake your cookies, especially if you’re looking for soft and gooey cookies.  They should just be set on the top, and once you pull them from the oven they will continue baking.  Let them set before transferring them to your wire rack.
