Many of you know that before I was a food blogger, I was a classically trained pastry chef. I worked for a decade in kitchens while getting a degree in a Baking and Patisserie program. When I went vegan, I set out on a mission to veganize all the classic desserts we know and love.
With all that experience behind me, I found that it wasn’t difficult at all to make delicious and crave-able dessert exactly like we remembered them. By understanding how eggs work in baking and looking to find the perfect egg replacers, I was able to replicate nearly everything.
Among my most popular baking recipes, are my vegan cookies. You guys love them! And so I decided to round up all the BEST cookie recipes in one place so that you can enjoy vegan cookies all year 'round!
Let’s take a closer look at these vegan cookie recipes. I think you’re going to love them!
In addition, if you don’t have a stand-up mixer, I highly recommend one for vegan baking. I have had mine for 15 years and it’s never once given me a problem. I can make every kind of vegan cookie simply by flipping a switch.
Serving and Storing
Storing – Store leftover cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to five days.
Freezing – To freeze these cookies, allow the cookies to cool and transfer to an airtight freezer-safe container or bag. Freeze the cookies for up to three months.
Tips and Tricks
- The most accurate way to measure flour is to spoon it into your measuring cup, leveling it off with the back of a knife.
- Do not overmix your batter. Overmixing allows the gluten to develop and too much gluten will give you a gummy and dense cookie.
- Bake the cookies at a higher temperature. This allows extra chewiness on the inside while creating a delicate crispy shell on the outside. I choose to bake mine at 375F which, after a lot of trial and error, seems to give me the best texture inside and out.
- Pull cookies out when they are slightly underdone. I found 8-10 minutes to be the perfect baking time. They will continue to harden as they cool, giving you a crispy outside with a deliciously chewy center.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! If you only want to make only a few at a time, you can store the remaining dough in the freezer. To do this, roll all the dough into balls. Place them on a baking sheet in the freezer to freeze all the way through. Once frozen, transfer your cookie dough into a large ziplock bag and return to the freezer. You can store the cookies this way for up to 2 months. When you’re ready to bake, remove from freezer and bake!
Yep! For a gluten free option use a 1:1 Gluten-Free Flour Baking Blend. If the recipe calls for oats, make sure also to find oats that are marked gluten free as well.
Each recipe will have a different egg replacer recommendation. If you want to experiment, check out my Complete Guide to Replacing Eggs for more ideas.
