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?

I just made these and I thought they were delicious, one of the best chocolate chip cookie recipes on the site - in flavor. I followed the recipe exactly and they came out mushy and wouldn't hold shape. I even baked them longer to try to get them to harden. I'm not sure what I could have done wrong.

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.

In my opinion, this recipe tops the Happy Vegan ones in flavor, but in appearance and ability to hold shape (and look like a cookie instead of brownie or cake), the Happy Vegan ones trump.

They are both great cookies in their own way.  ;D

These are so good. I have made tham twice and they have turned out great. I made some and froze the rest in individual blobs and cooked them when we wanted some and they were great. Nice and soft. Perfect!!!

Not to toot my own horn, but I totally owned this. I made the cookies 4 days ago and they are STILL soft, like fresh from a bakery. I halved the recipe, as I only had half a bag of chips. The changes I made: I used a commercial egg replacer, equivalent to about 1 (not half), plus a spponful of cinnamon applesauce. I also thought the dough looked a bit dry and stiff, so I added a splash each of chocolate almond milk and water. Doing those thing made the cookies actually expand, but I put them in the oven already in flat cookie shapes. When they were done, I realized they had "grown"! But they were still amazing. If anyone has problems with lack of expanding/too crispy/dry, I suggest doubling the egg replacer (I used Ener-G), and adding some liquid, probably 1 cup milk and/or water for the full recipe. Can't wait to share these with naysayers!

YUM! Just made these tonight for the first time. I used whole wheat flour, and followed other suggestions by using 3/4 cup earth balance and 2/3 applesauce. It was so nice to eat the dough and not worry about the raw eggs! I baked mine for about 13 minutes. My very non-vegan partner loved them! Commented on how chocolately they are and how nice the texture is. I think I have had at least 10 tonight! Very relieved to have this recipe:)

THese are great. I put 2/3 cup applesauce, I had a bit under 3/4 cup EB left, so I topped it up with some oil. I used whole wheat flour and only 1 cup sugar with a blop of molasses. 1 teaspoon of salt seemed like alot and 1/2 teaspoon worked fine. THey worked really well, next time I may put raisins and almonds in there, along with the cinnamon that was forgotten this time. A bit of oats would be delicious as well. They were very moist, even after sitting out overnight. I had to be gentle taking them off the tray when they were hot, then once they cooled they stay together very well. They rose nicely and were almost like a chewy yet light cake cookie. Not tough at all, just right. I will make these again, maybe even follow the recipe next time! ;)

These are awesome. The best cookies I've ever made says the people I cook for..and I make lots of cookies LOL. Only things I have to say about the recipe is that my cookies were completely packed with choc chips and I only used about half of the suggested amount. I also used all whole wheat flour and it worked great. Thanks for the recipe! Pics to come.

OH my word!!  I have tried so many Choc. chip cookie recipes and this one is as good or better than the old "toll house" recipe my mother made when I was young!!  I only cooked them for 10 minutes and they were great!!  My very non vegan husband doesn't believe they are vegan.  Thanks for posting this one.  Easy to mix and make!

I just made these and didn't change a thing.  Soooo chocolatey and sooo yummy.  Crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside.  I think I've finally found the BEST vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe (and I've tried LOTS!)  Thanks!!!  ;D

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!!

Did you bake these differently than what the recipe calls for? because i saw the pic you took of them and wanted to make my cookies the same so i followed the changes you made. Did the pb make all the difference, cuz i didnt add that...
