How to Make Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Delicious and hearty really chocolaty vegan chocolate chip cookies that are also gluten-free and oil-free.

Those vegan chocolate chip cookies were born when I was about to make another batch of my homemade chocolate candies. So, I already had made a variation of my oatmeal mix when I suddenly had a craving for vegan chocolate chip cookies instead. Thus, I played around with the ingredients as well as proportions and a new recipe was born.

See how I make those cookies in the below video:

Be aware, those cookies are not something you could mindlessly munch on! It’s because considerable amount of calories in this recipe come from fat – 46.5% to be more precise.

However, this recipe includes only whole food ingredients (except xylitol) making it a lot healthier compared to any conventional chocolate cookies. The reason I use xylitol instead of whole food sweeteners such as dried fruit, is that I’m living Candida free after the cleanse.

How to Make Healthy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

To make healthy cookies you simply need to use whole food plant-based ingredients. Here’s what those cookies consist of:

Cacao paste or liquor and coconut puree give those cookies their hearty and chocolaty body. In fact there’s no need to use any added oils to achieve a buttery result.

Next, rolled oats and oat bran give our cookies the grainy texture. I decided to incorporate oat bran to lower the glycemic load of the recipe.

Then, there’s no harm in adding cocoa powder for some extra chocolaty flavour.

Also, let’s add Himalayan salt to enhance flavours and cinnamon for an extra kick.

Finally, carob powder and oat milk are the whole food sweeteners in this recipe while xylitol (or erythritol) gives an extra boost to sweetness without adding bulk.

The Process

The process of making those chocolate chip cookies is quite simple.

You start by mixing all the dry ingredients with oat milk and let this mixture sit until it thickens.

In the meanwhile, using a double-boiler, melt ⅔ of the cocoa mass and mix it with coconut puree. Then, chop the reminder ⅓ of the cocoa mass.

When the batter has absorbed the liquids, mix it with melted cacao paste and coconut puree. Finally, stir in chopped cacao paste.

Now it’s down to forming cookies, placing them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and baking at 175°C (350°F) for 16 minutes.

Furthermore, my vegan chocolate cookies are also gluten-free, oil-free, refined sugar free and obviously Candida diet friendly.

Tips on my vegan chocolate chip cookies:

  • You might also melt all the cocoa mass and combine it with oatmeal mixture. This way the batter wouldn’t stick to your fingers at all!
  • Feel free to use dark chocolate chips instead of chopped cocoa paste.
  • Store the cookies in a sealed container in fridge or freezer.
  • Heat the cookies in oven if you like them crispy.
  • Finally, you may add more or less xylitol depending on how sweet you like them.
