How to Make Vegan Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 2

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the vegan butter, light brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix on low until combined and there are no chunks of butter.

Add the coconut milk, flour, baking soda, and fine sea salt in that order. Mix on low until combined. Add the dark chocolate and mix to combine.

Step 3

Using your hands, from the dough into 12 balls and place on the prepared baking sheets. Flatten them slightly so they are about 2-inches in diameter.

Step 4

Bake for 14 to 16 minutes or until the edges and bottom are lightly golden brown. Bake for less if you like a really soft baked or doughy cookie. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheets. (Make sure to check the high altitude baking time in the notes at the bottom of the recipe if baking above sea level.)

Tips for Vegan Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies

  • Make sure the vegan butter is soft. Just like traditional butter, it’s best if it’s left out of the counter to soften naturally at room temperature.
  • If you want to use real butter, you can! Using real butter and real milk will give you a delicious eggless cookie.
  • I use light brown sugar in this recipe. If you don’t have light brown sugar, you can make your own with my Homemade Light Brown Sugar recipe.
  • I call for coconut milk in this recipe, but you can use almond milk or oat milk too. Whichever you prefer will work great!
  • I reserve a small bit of chocolate chunks to add on top of the cookies after they are formed. This is optional, but will help them look loaded with chocolate! Read my article on How to Make Picture Perfect Cookies for a more detailed explanation of this tip.
  • I use a cookie cutter to round these out after baking, so they are perfectly round. This tip works best immediately after the cookies come out of the oven so they’re still hot. Read my article on How to Make Picture Perfect Cookies for a more detailed explanation of this tip.
  • Make sure to store these cookies in an airtight container so they retain their soft and chewy texture.

FAQ's

Can I use regular butter?

Yes, if you are not vegan and just want eggless cookies, you can replace the vegan butter with classic butter!

Can I make these gluten free?

Yes! I have a simple adjustment to make this recipe gluten free in the Notes at the bottom of the recipe. I also link my preferred gluten free flour blend.

Can I make these at high altitude?

Yes, all my recipes have one simple adjustment for baking at high altitude (which is above 5,000 feet!). Check the Notes at the bottom of the recipe if you are a high altitude baker, like me!

Can I add other add ins?

Of course, other additions to this cookie that would be delicious would be nuts like almonds, walnuts, pecans, or cashews. You could also add in dried fruit like cranberries or blueberries.
