Chocolate Chip Cookies-Like They Should Be

What you need: 

3/4 cup raw sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup vegan margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4-1/3 cup applesauce (enough to equal 1 egg)
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 (12 ounce) bag vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips

What you do: 

1. Heat oven to 370 degrees Fahrenheit. Beat sugars, margarine, vanilla, and applesauce together in a large bowl.
3. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt. (Dough will be somewhat stiff). Stir in chocolate chips.
3. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until light brown. Cool.
This is a recipe that my mom has been making my entire life, and I was so so so excited that they turned out so well after substituting a few things.

wow these are outstanding!! i added cinnamon as well, and that just sent them over the top!!! awesome cookies!


These were great.  I used toasted walnuts as well.  I tried carob chips but they melted out of the cookies and burned at this temperature.  Chocolate is definitely the way to go. 


these are great!

turned out a bit on the crispified side tho...

think ill add 1/2 c soymilk next time...

also i found that a whole bag o choco chips may have been too many... there were a bunch left in the bowl that woudnt even fit in the cokies they were so packed with chips!

choco-loving-husband ate four gigantic ones and currently has chocolate all over his face... im not going to tell him though...

fourteen thumbs up!


I used liquid egg replacer instead of applesauce and put in walnuts. Also, I used all raw sugar, no brown, and I used whole wheat flour. They're really yummy but it was hard putting them on the cookie sheet because the dough wasn't sticking together but rather crumbly. The cookies turned out fine though (a little on the crunchy side rather than chewy, but that's ok, no cookie is alike  ;)). Next time I think I would put in a couple tablespoons of soymilk or soy yogurt and use white flour.


Very good!  I added 2 T of espresso powder to my double batch.  I also reduced the chips to 20 oz. (for two batches) and they were still packed with chocolatey goodness. 


Simply amazing.
Yet I as well added a bit of peanut butter, used 3/4 margarine, and 2/3 cup of applesause.

Still awesome, though.
5-stars  :)


I used these substitutions

1) 3/4 cup of margarine instead of a cup
2) 2/3 cup of apple sauce instead of 1/3
3) and I added 2 heaping tablespoons of peanut butter
4) and I used carob in stead of chocolate chips

I love them!!


During the holidays, I try every choc chip cookie recipe I can find. These are, by FAR, the best choc chip cookies I have ever made. Thank you so, so much!


Those cookies look delicious. I hate to compare, but has anyone who has made these also made the Happy Vegan chocolate chip cookies, and if so, which do you prefer? I really like the Happy Vegan ones and have been disappointed by other recipes, so I was just curious.


I sent my husband to work with a batch of these, and I mean, HUGE batch of these, he came back with an empty box at night. everyone
