Vegan Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Recipes

October 27, 2021

The easiest, healthiest, most delicious vegan chocolate chunk cookies! It’s made dairy-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free and full of chocolatey goodness in every bite. It’s gooey in the middle, a little crunchy on the outside with big chunks of melted chocolate. The best lockdown snack ever!

KEY INGREDIENTS WE USED

Coconut sugar – a natural sweetener which is a great substitute for your regular white or brown sugar. Coconut sugar is considered low-glycemic so it’s a healthier alternative to refined sugars.

Coconut oil – serves as a substitute for butter

Gluten-free flour – this can also be substituted with regular all-purpose flour or even whole wheat flour

Oat milk – a non-dairy milk alternative which also adds more fiber into this recipe. Other non-dairy milk can be used like almond milk, cashew milk or soy milk

Dairy-free dark chocolate – simply chop the chocolate bar into chunks. This makes the cookies more chocolatey compared to using regular chocolate chips. I like to use at least 70% dark chocolate.

CAN THESE COOKIES BE FROZEN?

Yes can do! The cookie dough can be frozen once you’ve rolled these into balls, or you can freeze already baked cookies. If the latter, be sure to cool them first before freezing, and place a parchment paper in between to keep them from sticking to each other.

VARIATIONS TO THESE CHOCOLATE CHUNK COOKIES

Use chocolate chips if that’s what you prefer. Also add some more crunch like chopped walnuts, macadamias, pistachios, pecans, or almond flakes. Other add-ons are dried fruits like cranberries, sultanas, and even some seeds like pepitas, and sunflower seeds. The choices are endless!
