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.
Enjoy!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

The first time I made these was a long time ago at a party for a bunch of people. I didn't plan on eating them cuz I never liked chocolate chips even before I was vegan (I'm just not a chocolate person). The batter was SO AMAZING for this recipe I gobbled 'em up, too! It was also easy enough for me to make some cookies without the chocolate chips and just get an AMAZING tasting sugar cookie out of it! These were soooooooooooooooooo good I'd recommend them to everybody (and I do!).

Make them! Now! Even THINKING about these cookies is making my mouth water lol.

These cookies are unbelievable!! Definitely the best vegan cookie recipe I've yet to come across (and I have baked a lot of vegan chocolate chip cookies). Mighty tasty, with none of the usual problems with vegan cookies: the dough was moist and stuck together without being crumbly, they flattened out nicely during baking. They firm up a lot after taking them out of the oven so don't bake them until they "look" done - they'll be way overcooked.

Subbed 3/4 cup Earth Balance and 1/2 cup of peach apple sauce (and used about half the amount of chocolate chips called for). I think this is a great modification and keeps them from being too greasy. Seriously, the applesauce is amazing, best egg replacer ever. Did I mention how nice this dough is?!  :)>>>

Made these exactly but used a (cage free) egg and added coconut, too much salt.  I'd make it 3/4 of a tsp.

I realised the problem: I made the oat flour myself, but did not think about the fact that it would decrease in volume! Meaning that I used about 1/2-1 cup less flour than I should have done.
Nethertheless, it tastes nice, and I can see this recipe must be very good (when made properly). Perhaps the only thing may be the greasiness? But then the extra flour must sort that out.
Thanks anyway, I'll most likely make these again.

Just took these out the oven.. made a few changes: 1 1/4 cup oat flour + 1 cup spelt, 1 cup fructose, bit of molasses, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp bicarb instead of baking soda, raisins (no chocolate chips), 3/4 tsp almond extract, 3/4 cup margarine, 2/3 cup applesauce + peanut butter.
Had 2 things come up at that point: 1 - couldn't beat the margarine bits out, so heated the mixture up. 2 - the mixture seemed really moist, wouldn't have worked in cookie form.
I baked them for about 10 minutes, and they came out like cake. I think it's because a. there was too much moisture and b. baking powder/bicarb
Ah well.. when they cool down I'll update on how they taste!

These really are great vegan cookies.  I have been a vegan for 24 years and this is the best recipe for chocolate chip cookies that I have tried.  My non-vegan husband loved them too.  Thanks for the recipe.

Oh, and half a banana for the "egg!"

This is a wonderful basic recipe for chocolate chip cookies. I always change my recipes a little bit though - this time I replaced some of the margarine with peanut butter and hot water, then added walnuts as well. Delicious!

i just made these.. and they are still baking in the oven, but the first batch was delicious!  i made them with whole wheat flour and ener-g egg replacer instead of applesauce.. i also added 1/2 c. soymilk because the batter was soo dry.  they are a little cakey-er than i like my choc. chip cookies, but are very filling and one will satisfy my cookie craving... i used dark choc. chips and vegan carob chips together.  i also added 2 Tbsp. dark chocolate peanut butter.  deeelicious!  thanks!

I made these pink for Valentine's day! I make these all the time; they are our favorite cookies. I find them to be very versatile..I can just throw in some applesauce and flour..and it always comes out great. I tend to use more applesauce + a few tbs of EB + 1/4 cup canola oil. If I find the dough is too thick/not thick enough..I just add more applesauce/flour, accordingly. I've never had them too crispy (unless I baked them too long). People thought they tasted like strawberry when I had the red color powder in them (all in the head!). These would be great with any additions!
