The Ultimate Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

With Thanksgiving and the holidays just around the corner, family dinners are one thing you can plan on having this season. Instead of showing up empty-handed, try using this recipe for the absolute best vegan chocolate chip cookies. 

I created this recipe because of my older sister who is vegan. I love baking, but I wanted something my whole family could enjoy. So I tweaked my original ingredients, and these cookies were born. To make them even more delicious and festive, adding crushed-up candy cane bits can easily transition this recipe from basic cookies to a special holiday tradition. 


  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, slightly softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup plant-based milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 + 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • vegan chocolate chips


  1. Add vegan butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar to a large bowl. Using an electric mixer or whisk, cream the butter and sugar together until combined (about 1-2 minutes). Add the plant-based milk and vanilla extract. Cream together once more to combine.
  2. Add all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt to the bowl. Fold the ingredients together until evenly combined. Then, mix in the chocolate chips.
  3. Cover the cookie dough with cling wrap or tin foil and place in the refrigerator to chill for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Scoop the cookie dough into balls and transfer to the baking sheet.
  6. Bake cookies for 11-14 minutes on the middle rack in your oven. Remove cookies from the oven. Once you’ve removed them from the oven, let the cookies rest for 5 minutes on the baking sheet. They will firm up and de-puff while cooling. Enjoy!
