Vegan Double Chocolate Cookies

Full of chocolate goodness these Vegan Double Chocolate Cookies are easy to make and even easier to eat. Made with whole food plant-based ingredients!

I love healthy desserts. I'm glad God gave us to tools to learn how to eat healthy, nourishing foods that are delicious at the same time. There is such a beauty in God's creation.

These Vegan Double Chocolate Cookies are in that healthy desserts category. Yes, there's definitely some chocolate in these cookies, but the ingredient list is so clean. No bad-for-you butter or cholesterol-filled eggs. No added/refined sugars and no processed flours.

Vegan Double Chocolate Cookies


In fact, all of the ingredients are health promoting!

  • Almond Butter: filled with vitamin E and other healthy fats
  • Date Sugar: a natural sweetener made from fruit
  • Ground Flaxseeds: a non-toxic source of essential omega-3s
  • Oat Flour: gluten free and made from oats
  • Buckwheat Flour: gluten free (despite the name) and made from seeds
  • Applesauce: another natural sweetener filled with fiber

Add in some cocoa powder, vanilla extract, baking soda, salt, and (of course) chocolate chips, and you'll be on your way to Vegan Double Chocolate Cookies.

I love giving these cookies to friends because I know I'm feeding them delicious food that is also so good for them. No more guilt about cooking unhealthy sweets for your friends and family. With these cookies you can prioritize both your health and theirs!

How to make Vegan Double Chocolate Cookies

To make, mix the almond butter, date sugar, ground flaxseeds, and vanilla extract. Then add the oat flour, buckwheat flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and applesauce. Once the dough comes together, stir in the chocolate chips (make sure to find a vegan brand!!).

Then, scoop tablespoon-sized balls of cookie dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Press flat because the cookies will not spread in the oven. Bake for a mere 8 minutes. Then enjoy these delicious AND healthy Vegan Double Chocolate Cookies.

Recipe Prayer

God, thank you for giving us the ability to make food that is both delicious and healthy. Help us keep ourselves and our friends healthy with nourishing food. Amen.

Hi Could you please confirm two things:1. The amount of salt. Seems like too much. 2. The directions say there is lemon juice in the dressing but it’s not listed under ingredients. ThanksL.
Hi there! Confirming that the two teaspoons of salt in the dressing is correct. I didn't salt the cauliflower when roasting it or the salad after it was done, so this amount of salt was perfect. If you're concerned about it you can decrease the amount of salt in the dressing and then add more at the end if you need it. As for the lemon juice, SO sorry about that! It was a typo in my directions and I've removed it now. Hope this helps :)

This looks lovely! Do you have a recipe for the red pepper hummus also? Thank you!
Hi Martha! I don't have a recipe for red pepper hummus on my site. I suggest taking a traditional hummus recipe and blending in roasted red pepper.

I tried these and they were delicious! A bit dense but flavorful and the "buckeye" blend of peanut and chocolate was on point! Recommend!
Yay! I'm so glad you liked them! -- Elizabeth

Hi, these look amazing. I was wondering, could I used powdered peanut butter in place of creamy for the recipe? thanks
Hi Grace! There is already some powdered peanut butter in this recipe, so adding more might make the texture more gluey. Also, the real peanut butter adds some fat, which helps create flavor. That said, if you want to use powdered peanut butter, I would suggest mixing it with a high-fat liquid like coconut cream and then measuring out 2/3 cup. Hope this helps! Let me know how it goes :) -- Elizabeth

You mention using vegetable broth in your introduction but it isn’t included in the recipe
Hi Becky - thanks for pointing this out. I have removed mention of vegetable broth from this post. You do not need any vegetable broth. The mushrooms will release natural liquid which will prevent any sticking. -- Elizabeth

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
