Chocolate Chip Cookies! (Vegan, GF)

These cookies are easy to make and rather cheap too! (considering their gluten-free and vegan).

We adapted these cookies from the Happy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies from, desketched and de-glutenized, when I first made these cookies, I used turbinado sugar, I found that since the baking time is minimal in this recipe the sugar did not de-crystalize enough, so I blended it in the food processor to make a finer granule and it eliminated the sandy grain taste! Here is the recipe:

  • 2 cups Gluten-free Flour Blend (see substitutions)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup sucanat or turbinado sugar (if using sucanat, add more water or oil)
  • 1/2 cup safflower oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Vegan chocolate chips, you could also add nuts, dried fruit etc.
Preheat oven to 350. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl, set aside. Combine wet ingredients in another bowl, combine the two mixes and chips together. Spoon drops of dough on parchment lines baking sheet. You will have to flatten these quite a bit, they don't spread like usual cookies do. Put in the oven for 5 minutes, rotate cookie sheet for even baking, and continue baking for 4 minutes, the bottom should be golden, toasty brown. The tops should be a very pale brown, they won't look done, they will be rather flaky on top but trust me they are done! They will firm up when you let them sit. So, let them sit, then transfer to cooling rack. 

The result? Chewy guilt-free cookies!

Makes about 2 dozen


  1. Just made these tonight, and they are so good! I substituted applesauce for the coconut oil, and they tasted great! :-) Love your site!

  2. As I sit waiting for these cookies to come out of the oven, I felt it necessary to let you two know that this recipe has made my veganism possible! I've been eating these cookies every night for about a year and make them for my friends and family all the time. Who knew a vegan dessert could be so absolutely perfect? My life dream is to open a vegan café, and if my dream comes true I will without a doubt sell these cookies and put a picture of you two on my wall to commemorate you for introducing me to the recipe I love most in the world! Keep doing what you're doing- your blog is definitely not unappreciated!
