I come bearing yummy yummy yummy vegan chewy chocolate chip cookies, via Compassion Over Killing ! Well, a recipe for them, anyway. The rest is up to you.

I made a batch on x-mas Eve and, I’ve gotta say, they’re the best homemade cookies I’ve had in recent memory. Usually, when making desserts, I try to convert a non-veg recipe, and it never works out quite right. The milk-to-soy milk is easy, but the eggs always give me a problem. Methinks that’s why my cookies are never chewy enough. COK did all the work for me this time, and – voilĂ  – chewy chocolate chip cookies, as promised.

Recipe and pics after the jump.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes 25 to 30 cookies

* 1 cup of softened soy margarine
* 1/2 cup brown sugar
* 1/2 cup sugar
* 1/4 cup soy milk
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* 2 1/4 cups flour
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 12 ounces dairy-free chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

In a large bowl, mix the margarine, sugar, and brown sugar until it’s light and fluffy. Slowly stir in the soy milk then add the vanilla to make a creamy mixture.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda. Add this dry mixture to the creamy mixture and stir well. Then fold in the chocolate chips.

Drop small spoonfuls onto non-stick cookie sheets and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

    […] cookies themselves were really good: almost as yummy as my favorite “scratch” chocolate chip cookie recipe. Almost, but not quite. Still, pretty friggin’ good. Very fluffy and moist, with juuuust the […]

    were these chewy or more cakey? do they stay soft and chewy even a day or two after you bake them? i don’t typically use all vegan ingredients i just don’t use eggs so i’m wondering if i use dairy butter and milk and choco chips (instead of vegan) if they’ll still come out good. thoughts?

  3. Kelly G. Says:

    Erin – It’s been a while since I’ve made these, but as I recall, they were very chewy (not cakey – I’m not a big fan of cakey) and held up well. Naturally, because this is a vegan blog, written by a vegan, I’d advise you to use a non-dairy margarine and chocolate chips, soy milk and an egg replacer (whether a brand name or an on-the-fly substitute, such as applesauce). These ingredients result in a product that’s just as yummy, usually healthier for your body and the planet, and animal-friendly, to boot.

  4. erin Says:

    hi… thanks for the reply. you mention egg replacer but there is not egg replacer listed in the ingredients list above. also, just to verify, the recipe calls for baking powder. so there is no baking soda in this recipe? thanks again. i’ll try them out this weekend..

  5. Kelly G. Says:

    Oh, duh, sorry! You’re right, no egg replacer; I’m so used to using it that I just assumed it was in there w/out re-reading the whole post. No baking soda, either. Good luck :)

  6. erin Says:

    Whoops, ok i think i’m confusing both you and i. there is baking soda… but not baking powder. right? and thanks for the feedback on the egg replacer. i hope these come out soft and chewy. thanks!

  7. Kelly G. Says:

    Heh, yes to baking soda, no to baking powder, correct.

  8. Amelia Says:

  10. Pree Says:

    Cut chocolate chips in half!!! I made these with 12 Ounces of c. Chips and it’s way too much chocolate per cookie. It’s my new favorite recipe though because the cookies are really tasty!

  14. Terri Says:

    These were fantastic! I used a bit of Zukla pure can sugar with standard C&H processed and it might have affected the taste slightly, plus I added a dash of pumpkin pie spice and didn’t use an entire bag of chocolate chips, but da-ammn they turned out good! Finally, a real vegan chewy cookie recipe! The texture is perfect!! Not dense and not cakey like other vegan cookies recipes I’ve made. This is now my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe, thanks for this oldie (2006) but goodie recipe!

  15. Kelly Garbato Says:

    Pumpkin pie spice, that sounds good! Glad you like the recipe, Terri :)

  16. Ava Says:

    These cookies are amazing but they are very very cakey. Other than that they are great!

    Soft? Yes. Delicious? Yes. They do come out a bit on the “tall” side, and don’t quite spread out like your typical chocolate chip cookie, but this can be easily avoided by patting them a little flat before you bake them. Yes, they are a cakey, but i’m not entirely sure that there’s anything wrong with that. Make sure you start with room temp margarine, or else your sugar won’t fluff up right. (I fixed it by applying some heat with my blow dryer to warm up my mixing bowl). Thanks for the recipe!!
