Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies!


  • 1 cup olivio coconut spread (you can use Earth Balance coconut spread but I've found olivio is typically softer)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 apples, peeled and cored
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (Enjoy life has the dairy free allergy friendly kind)


Preheat oven to 350F.

In a pot, boil the apple slices until they are mushy. Drain them and then mash them up into a sauce. Leave to the side for now.

Mix in a large bowl the coconut spread, the white sugar, and the brown sugar until it's blended. Add in the the applesauce, the baking soda, and the vanilla extract. Then add in the salt, chocolate chips, and flour. Once this is mixed together, put small spoonfuls of the dough on an ungreased cookie sheet. Cook for about 15 minutes (check them at 12).

These cookies are perfect for anyone with dairy or egg allergies. You could probably sub the flour for rice flour to make them gluten free as well. I think these make about 4 dozen cookies - I was eating them as I was baking so I have no idea. :-)


  1. Those look delicious. I can't wait to try those for when I start baking for Christmas.

    1. Considering the amount I have eaten in the past 24 hours, I can confirm they are, in fact, delicious. I think I've had well over a dozen. Probably closer to two dozen now.... I'm going with they are cookies and I haven't had homemade cookies in probably three years... I'm playing catch up. :-)
