Double chocolate cookies, completely egg-free, dairy-free and absolutely vegan and absolutely delicious. I think chocolate chocolate chunk cookies are possibly one of my favorite vegan cookies ever. After vegan cake mix cookies. And pumpkin cookies. And who can forget these vegan chocolate chip bacon sea salt cookies? Oh, who am I kidding? I love ALL vegan cookies!
If you can't find vegan chocolate chunks, use regular chocolate chips in this recipe - you're still in for a real treat. One popular brand of vegan chocolate chips is called "Enjoy Life", and is widely available online, including on Amazon.
For the egg replacer, I usually recommend Ener-G brand, but I'm also a fan of Bob's Red Mill brand for baking (both of these are also widely available online if you can't find them locally for some reason). Buy a box of either one of these just once, and they'll last you a long time, depending on how much vegan and egg-free baking you do, of course.
I usually like my cookies to be nut-free, just a personal preference, but you could certainly add in about a half-cup of just about any kind of nuts to the cookie dough if you disagree. Coarsely chopped walnuts, hazlenuts, or even macadamia nuts would be best.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup cocoa
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 1/4 cup sugar
- egg replacer for 1 egg, prepared according to package instructions
- 1/2 cup soy milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chunks
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
In a separate large bowl, whisk together the sugar and vegetable oil until well mixed, then add the prepared egg replacer, soy milk and vanilla.
Add flour mixture to sugar and oil mixture, mixing just until well combined, then stir in the vegan chocolate chunks (or chocolate chips if you can't find vegan chocolate chunks).
Drop the dough by generous spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet, then gently flatten.
Bake your cookies in the pre-heated oven for 8-10 minutes, until done, being careful not to over-bake.
Enjoy your vegan chocolate chunk cookies!
