Dry Ingredients

  • 2 ¼ cups all purpose flour use gluten free 1-1 flour if gluten free
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoon arrowroot
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

Wet Ingredients

  • ¾ cup vegan butter softened to room temperature
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup raw cane sugar
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 1 egg yolk at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Other Ingredients

  • 1 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips


Dry Ingredient Instructions

  • Whisk together dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside.

Wet Ingredients Instructions

  • Whisk together the sugars and vegan butter in a medium bowl until no lumps remain. Add in remaining wet ingredients in the order listed.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips and chill the dough for 2 hours.
  • Remove chilled dough from the fridge and allow it to soften for about 10 minutes while the oven preheats to 325F.
  • Place a piece of parchment paper or Silpat on a cookie sheet and scoop 2-3 tablespoon sized scoops. Roll scoops into a ball and place on the cookie sheet.
  • Bake cookies for about 12 minutes. Remove from oven and let them sit on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes to complete baking. Transfer to a cooling rack and allow them to cool.


  • Correct measurement is key. Be sure to measure your flour using the scoop and level method and make sure you pack the brown sugar.
  • You do not need to use melted butter when creaming the sugar and butter. Room temperature butter works best.
  • No substitutions other than those noted have been tested with this recipe. I do not recommend swapping almond or coconut flour for all purpose flour in making this recipe. Check out my Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies for a cookie made with almond flour.
  • Try pressing this cookie dough into a pie plate sprayed with cooking spray to make a yummy dairy free cookie cake!
