Best gluten-free vegan double chocolate cookies! These healthy double chocolate chip cookies are made with whole foods ingredients, full of chocolate, and easy to whip up in just 20 minutes!
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. They are seriously the best. Yes, there's definitely some chocolate in these cookies, but the ingredient list is pretty clean. No bad-for-you butter or cholesterol-filled eggs. No added/refined sugars and no processed flours.
Basically, these cookies are made from whole foods. If you use an unsweetened brand of chocolate chips, you can make these cookies entirely whole foods plant-based.
Or, if you're feeling a bit more sweet, go for a sweetened chip.
Step 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Step 2. In a large bowl, mix the nut butter, date sugar, 1/3 cup of the applesauce, flaxseeds, and vanilla extract until combined.
Step 3. Add the oat flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix the dough. If it is too dry, add another tablespoon or two of applesauce until the dough comes together - it will still be very thick.
Step 4. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Step 5. Shape in to balls and arrange the cookies on the baking sheets. Use the palm of your hand to flatten the cookies - they won't spread much during the bake.
Step 6. Bake for 10-15 minutes. If your cookies are on the smaller side (like tablespoon-sized), bake to the 10 minute mark. If they are a bit larger, they may need a few more minutes. Once you can pick up a cookie without it breaking, it is done.
Step 7. Let the cookies cool slightly. Enjoy!
To make them fully-plant based you will need to use an unsweetened chocolate.
Yep. Be sure to buy certified gluten-free oat flour.
You can make them any size. Often, when I make these cookies, I will use a tablespoon measure to scoop the dough.
If I'm feeling extra fancy though, I'll get out my larger cookie scoop and make them larger.
That depends. If you use a tablespoon to scoop the dough (as I often do) you can make upwards of 25 cookies.
For these pictures I used a pretty large cookie scoop and got 11 cookies.
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.
