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.

For better or worse, the amount of fat is probably correct.  Most of my Granny's best cookie recipes call for 2 sticks of butter, which equals 1 cup.  That's why I don't use her recipes anymore (sorry Granny!).


Is this cookie greasy/oily when it comes out of the oven?  One cup of oil is a lot of oil!  For those of you who claim the cookie comes out crisp, if you take them out sooner they may become less crispy since cookies harden as they cool.  I could be wrong but thats the technique I use when I make cookies


Hands down the best Vegan cookie i've ever made.
orgasm in your mouth ;D


*dies of happiness from the amazing taste of these cookies*

These cookies ... are ... amazing ... !!!

My chocololic non-vegan best friend said they were the best chocolate chip cookies she had ever tasted. Everybody loved them and everybody wanted the recipe. I don't even like chocolate and I thought these things tasted great!! Haha, I'm definitely making this recipe for every party I have or go to for the rest of my natural-lived existence.  :)


These were great!  I am not a huge chocolate fan, so I omitted the chips, but they were nice and fluffy and mmmmm yum.


these were great!  I followed the recipe "as is", but only made a dozen to test the recipe. They came out fantastic:  crunchy on the outside chewy and chocolatey on the inside!


holy shit! i made these for the 2nd time and they came out great again. these actually SPREAD and get color!!! Enough said.  ;)


these are excellent!!!
i cut down the recipe to 1/4 and subbed oil for margarine.
they have an awesome texture and a great color.
i used fructose but added a touch of molasses for a brown sugar effect.
thank you so much, except for the fact that i'm eating a very unhealthy breakfast. lol.


Wow, these are fantastic cookies!  I followed the suggestions of others: I used 2/3 cup of applesauce and reduced the margarine.  Actually, I had less than 1/2 c of margarine so I made up the rest (for a total of 3/4 cup) in veg oil.  I added 1 tsp of almond extract, and instead of all of those choco chips I used 100 grams of chips and a handful or two of flaked coconut.  They came out soft in the the middle and crispy on the outside.  They are heavenly! 

As for the question about whether these are better than Happy Vegan Cookies....well, I've been using that recipe as my standard chocochip cookie recipe for months, and I still love it, but this one makes a different kind of cookie.  Happy Vegan cookies are best for when you're short on time and ingredients because they're super quick, easy, and so so tasty.  This recipe yields a slightly more complicated and sophisticated cookie.  So, really, I think it depends on what you're looking for in a cookie.  :)


these cookies are absolutely perfect! i don't tweak the recipe whatsoever. i made them for a big group of people and many people asked for the recipe! these are definitely a million times better than the happy vegan chocolate chip cookies, for sure. go with this recipe!
