Making cookies without butter
There are many brands on the market that offer plant-based butters, including Earth Balance, Country Crock, Trader Joes and Melt Organic.
Next on the list to try are peanut butter or almond butter cookies. If you tried one of these first, let me know how you did.
For cookies that don’t use vegan butter, you can substitute melted coconut oil. The cookies will be a little crumbly, but just as delicious.
Ingredients for vegan chocolate cookies
Here’s what you’ll need: flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, sugar, chocolate chips, vegetable butter, non-dairy milk, and pure vanilla extract.
No avocados, eggs, aquafaba, flax eggs, and of course dairy.
To keep your cookies vegan, look for dairy-free chocolate chips. These days, it’s readily available under brand names like Enjoy Life, Pascha, Evolved, Kirkland semi sweet (Costco), Simple Truth Organic (Kroger), Ghirardelli non-dairy, and Nestlé allergen-free Moselle.
The recipe works with spelled, oat, or white all-purpose flour. If you like paleo cookies, try coconut flour cookies.
How to make dark chocolate cookies
Stir all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl to break up any clumps of salt and baking soda.
Chop butter with a fork, pastry cutter, or stand mixer. Then add milk and vanilla essence. Continue stirring, crumbling the butter. The end result is cookie dough without the need for additional milk.
Roll by hand or with a cookie scoop. I like to cover and refrigerate until cool (or overnight) for a more crunchy cookie.
When you’re ready to bake your cookies, preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the ball of cookie dough on a parchment-lined baking sheet and on the center rack of the oven he bakes for 14 minutes.
Cookies will harden as they cool, so allow to cool before handling. Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
Baking Tips to Measure in Grams
If you’re like me and want to use a food scale instead of a cup, use the following: 100 grams of flour, 20 grams of cocoa powder, 100 grams of sugar, 60 grams of dairy-free butter of your choice. 30 grams of milk, 105 grams of chocolate chips.
Don’t forget baking soda, salt and pure vanilla extract.
- 3/4 cup white flour, spelled flour, or oat flour (For flourless, try these keto cookies)
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup unrefined sugar as desired
- 2/3 cup chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup butter (such as melt vegan)
- 2 tablespoon milk of your choice
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla essence
*If desired, please indicate the unit in grams above.In a mixing bowl, stir dry ingredients well. Add butter (soft, not melted), milk and vanilla. If you mix by hand instead of using a stand mixer, it will be dry. Continue to stir, crumbling the butter. Do not add more milk. You will end up with cookie dough. Roll into a ball. For chewy cookies, cover and refrigerate until cool (or overnight, if desired). Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. On a parchment-lined sheet he bakes for 14 minutes. It will harden when cooled, so let it cool before handling.nutrition information
