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.

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!


These are amazing!  I added a banana to the sugar mixture and YUM!  Moist, chewy, oh so good! I highly recommend this recipe to all chocolate chip cookie fans!  :D


:D  :D WOW!!!! :D  :D

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...


my cookies are always really really chewy/cakelike.....It might be because I take out the butter/oil and replace it with applesauce. ...So maybe just putting in some applesauce might help


These cookies are delicious but they crumble very easily before you can get them in the oven. The dough falls apart. Any suggestions on making the dough stick together better???

thanks :)

I never had that problem, they always stay together great for me. Are you making the recipe like it's listed or changing anything?



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.

I'm not sure if adding a little soy or yoghurt works or not as i haven't tested it.. but that's what I think I'd try if that happened anyway.. Hope it goes okay :)
