Vegan Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies that couldn't be simpler to make.

These delicious cookies are perfectly thick and chewy crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. These are free of gluten, dairy and eggs. They’re also filled with lovely melted chocolate chips. Perfect for vegans and non-vegans.

This cookie recipe creates the perfect cookie. I didn't get it right on my first try though, previous versions were either too cakey, too hard, too thin or sunk in the middle. But after a lot of trial and error I finally nailed it.

I really hope you enjoy making these! And that you love them as much as me. They are deliciously buttery, firm but soft, and utterly chocolatey. 

Vegans will love them but even if you're not vegan you'll love them. These are seriously the best cookies i've ever tasted.

These were really hard to get right so i wouldn't advise making any adaptions or substitutions. The only ingredient that can be safely substituted is the vegan butter, this can be swapped out with melted coconut oil. 

At the end you'll be left with the tastiest batch of gluten-free chocolate chip cookies that the whole family can enjoy, even those with a gluten intolerance.

I've used lots of chocolate chips in these to ensure you get a deliciously gooey centre when you break them open. I've used a mixture of caster sugar and brown sugar which is really important to avoid them spreading too much when cooking and also for colour and flavour.

My top tips

  • You don’t need any fancy equipment, just beat by hand. You must chill the dough to avoid them spreading too much while cooking.
  • Follow the instructions to the letter, making changes can affect the taste and look of these cookies. That's why it took so many tries for me to perfect this recipe.
  • Make sure to use melted vegan butter and not straight from the fridge. Just melt in the microwave for 20 seconds or so.
  • Stick with using a combo of caster sugar and brown sugar (demerara sugar) to ensure you get the right texture and taste. 
  • For extra taste, feel free to add any of the following in small quantities - vanilla, dessicated coconut, cinnamon or nutmeg.
  • Make sure you add the dry ingredients to the bowl first, followed by the wet ingredients.
  • Don't just add all the ingredients at once.
  • Don't overbeat the mixture. Stir until all ingredients are combined and not any longer.
  • Don't overcook - these cookies will go hard if overcooked. Cookies should be light golden brown and soft to the touch when taken from the oven. They may feel like they are not cooked properly when taken out but they will set properly once removed from the oven.
