Okay guys, trust me when I say that this is literally my most favorite cookie recipe ever. I wouldn't be surprised if I've made it over 100 times by now. No joke! This cookie is loaded with chocolate-y coconut goodness, plus it's vegan, you've gotta try it!
The original recipe comes from Chocolate Covered Katie, who by the way makes awesome healthy desserts and a bunch of them have sugar free and/or gluten free options as well as vegan options. Since I first saw/used this recipe I've played with it a bunch, it's very versatile. This version however is my most favorite and the one I have pinned to my fridge. Also, a little insider information: there have been some weeks where I've made the half batch of this at least every other day, sometimes a few days in a row! Crazy right? Yeah, they're that good. I don't feel too guilty about it because after all they are gluten free and vegan so they aren't as high in fat as some traditional chocolate chip cookies. The recipe below is doubled and makes about 48 or so cookies depending on your cookie size, so feel free to half the recipe if you'd like.
Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie
- 1/2 Tsp Salt
- 1 Tsp Baking Soda
- 1/4 Cup White Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 3/4 Cup Water
- 1/4 Cup Oil (olive usually but sometimes coconut)
- 2 Tsp Vanilla Extract (I use this, it's amazing)
- 3 Cups Oat Flour
- 1 Cup Old Fashioned Whole Oats
- 1 1/4 Cup Chocolate Chips
- 1/2 Cup Shredded Coconut (I use this, it's also amazing)
Preheat oven to 350F, 177C
In a medium bowl add the salt, baking soda, white sugar, and brown sugar. Mix well. Next add in the water, oil, and vanilla extract, again mixing well. Then add in the oat flour, whole oats, chocolate chips, and coconut, mixing well for a final time. Once you're done mixing it up take 2 spoons and spoon it onto a cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-12 minutes depending on your oven and how crispy/soft you like them. Let them cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before removing them/devouring them.
In my experience I've made them all sorts of sizes, usually with a medium-small size I'll get about 48 out of the batch so just do your thing. Now and then I'll add 2 Tsp of ground flax seeds for the added vitamins. For the oat flour you can either buy it, make it yourself using a food processor, a high powered blender, or like me and use a NutriBullet. Just pour regular old fashioned or quick oats into one of the suggested tools and blend until it reaches a flour like consistency.
These are my favorite straight off the cookie sheet, they basically melt in your mouth because they're so soft. You could also try them with a glass of your favorite milk, I'm using coconut milk above. Enjoy!
