There are no eggs, no dairy and if it matters, no one needs to know they’re vegan.  But I can’t resist telling people they are vegan, just to get their reaction!  They are like OMGoodness, seriously?? 


It’s not as hard to cook and bake vegan,  because these days there are plenty of butter, egg, dairy substitutes out there to help you along the way!   

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.

Keyword: Chocolate, chocolate chip, chocolate cookies, cocoa powder, Cookies, double chocolate cookies
Servings: 15 Cookies


  • 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 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 semi sweet chocolate chips or chunks + some for top of cookies Add more if you wish, these cookies are chocolatey.


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line cookie sheet (s) with parchment paper.
  • Using a mixer, cream butter until light and creamy for 2 minutes.
  • 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.
  • Stir in flour, baking powder and salt and beat together just until a chocolate dough starts to form. Then fold in the chocolate chips.
  • 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.
  • Let cookies set on cookie tray for a couple of minutes before removing them to cool completely on a wire rack.
