Happy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

What you need: 

2 cups unbleached flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
cinnamon, to taste, optional
handful vegan chocolate or carob chips
1 cup raw sugar (turbinado; sucanat works too, but sucks up a lot of the moisture)
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup water

What you do: 

1. Very important-make sure all ingredients are at room temperature. It will work if they're not at room temp but it works much better if they are. Also while your oven is pre-heating put the cookie sheets you are going to use on top of the oven so they get preheated as well. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Stir in chips. Make a well in the center and set aside. In a medium size bowl, add together sugar and oil; mix well.
3. Add the vanilla and then add the water; mix well. Add the wet to the well in the dry. Mix it well but be careful not to overwork it. Add more chips if you need to.
4. Spoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. Put them in the oven. Bake for 5 minutes and then flip and rotate the sheets (top to bottom and 180 degree rotation). Bake another 4 minutes and check them. The cookies are done when they seem a little bit softer then you want them to be. They will harden up some as they cool. I usually go in 2 minute increments from here until they get to where I like them.
5. Take them out when they are done and move them to wire cooling racks. If they split or come apart when you try to remove them let them sit on the pan for 2 minutes before transferring them to the racks.
These cookies have come a long way, lots of time and tasting spent on getting them to where they are now. Vegans and non vegans love them. In the words of my 6 year old son:Mom, you're the greatest because you know how to make the best cookies. Enjoy and let me know if you have questions. Sweet travels.

This was the first vegan cookie recipe that I've made that people couldn't tell was vegan! I took these puppies to a barbeque and no one had a clue...when I told them they asked for the recipe : D  Thank you. Has anyone found a way to subsitute for the oil, I'm not a fan of veggie oils, etc. I've tried applesauce but they come out too moist.

these cookies are bar none the best vegan or otherwise.  car and driver voted them the best cookies in their class.

I know there are 27 pages of reviews...but just wanted to add that these turned out well! I used vegan margarine instead of oil, almond milk instead of water, and I added a banana because I read that it helps hold them together.  I also added a TON of cinnamon, because I love it :) The cookie dough was amazing! Slight banana flavor, which is a plus for me.  The cookies baked pretty quickly, but didn't taste that great at first.  I was really disappointed, but about an hour after coming out of the oven my non-vegan roommates gobbled them up, so I would say overall a success!

These were perfect. Best vegan choc chip cookies I've ever made. I put in a few twists of fresh ground cinnamon and it really took em over the top! You def have to flatten them into cookie shape before baking.

There so easy and I always have the ingredients around, and the recipes so easy and interchangeable, they come out perfect everytime.

This recipe is so easy and makes really yummy cookies! I did make a few modifications to it though. I use 1/2 cup brown sugar  and 1/2 white sugar. I also used 1/4 cup soy milk instead of water.

the dough was weird - crumbly - i ended up using my hands to form the cookieballs. i baked them for the suggested 5 minutes and looked at them to flip them over but they were till completely round and hadn't "melted" down at all. added 5 more minutes onto the cook time and they STILL weren't really flattening out but i pulled them out and flipped them over anyway. didn't come out the nice golden color im used to and are more balls than anything still but the taste is fine!

i didn't make any alterations in the ingredients part whatsoever because my dad wanted this exact recipe to a T.

Reviewing again. I have now made these cookies numerous times--they are SO simple to throw together. For my latest variation I used half whole wheat pastry flour/half spelt flour. Also, in addition to the chocolate chips (1/2 cups worth), I threw in crushed pretzels (~2 small handfuls) and toffee pieces (1/4 cup). AMAZING, and that's really all I have to say. Try this recipe!!
