Vegan recipe: Dangerously chocolatey cookies


I love cookies and I love chocolate. Naturally, mixing the two together into one delicious creation seemed like a good idea. Also, I’ve been wanting  to make something for my co-workers who are always munching on some yucky box cookies. After reading multiple recipes, I came up with the following vegan chocolate chunk cookies (but be warned, they are dangerously chocolatey!):


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Dash of salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 60g apple sauce + 1/4 tsp baking powder (or other egg substitute)
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (didn’t use this time because the grocery store was out, but would make the recipe better!)
  • 1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips (I chopped up some dark chocolate)



Now it’s time to get messy… i mean, make cookies… preheat your oven to 180C/350F

1. Mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in a small bowl and set aside.

2. Mix together the rest of the ingredients. (oil, sugar, apple sauce, soy milk vanilla and chocolate chunks)


3. Gradually stir in the flour mixture to the wet mixture until you get a consistent chocolatey magical creation that looks like this:


That’s right, three easy steps and your dough is finished!! Now spoon out some of that deliciousness onto a cookie sheet lined with baking paper. They only flatten a little, so avoid making them too thick.


Bake for 10-15 minutes, keeping an eye on them so you don’t burn down your house the bottoms of them. They should turn out something like this:


Be warned that this whole operation could get a little messy as chocolate is spectacularly gooey. But don’t worry, if this happens:


Because you can always do this… DSC_7111
