What’s your best vegan cookie recipe?

I’m not vegan, but I have yet to meet a vegan cookie that I haven’t liked.  I don’t quite know what makes vegan cookies so good, but I’m willing to keep trying them until I figure it out.

What’s your favorite vegan cookie? Share the recipe as a comment below (my research depends upon it)!

My favorite vegan cookie to date is a gourmet carrot cookie from Gel’s Kitchen. With ingredients like oats, ginger, wheatgerm, olive oil, and carrots, you can even get away with calling these cookies healthy. For the recipe, click here.

  • This recipe never fails me. It’s totally remixable, which is probably my favorite thing about it!

  • This is my favourite. I added the raisins to make it 'healthy' lol! You can use dairy free chocolate chips instead of raisins if you want. http://veganfoody.wordpress.com/2010/03/02/chocol

  • A friend at work made these recently and they were FAMAZING.


    And as someone who’s had Becky’s chocolate chip cookies above, I can say they are super awesome too!

    • Ohman, I've been ogling that book. Isa Chandra is one of my cooking heroes! And thanks! If you come to Atlanta, I'll make a batch for you! :P

    My favorite recipe is called vegan ganja goo goo balls. Here’s the recipe.

    2 cups biodynamic spelt flour

    .5 cups free range honey

    6.5 grams finest cannabis (finely minced)

    4 pasture chicken eggs

    1Lb 80% cocao bar

    3 tablespoons sorgham cane syrup

    2 cups freshly ground coconut

    13 grams sesame seeds

    *please put all these ingredients together first in a nice mixing bowl, and by logical progression form the goo goo balls in lovely rounds by palm of hand, finally coating exterior with coconut and sesame seeds. Please enjoy carefully after baking at 325 f for 40 minutes + or -.

    • Interesting recipe! Eggs and honey are not vegan, though. Could you sub maple syrup for the honey (or agave nectar), and use an equivalent amount of EnerG or maybe flax meal and water?

    • One: That’s not even vegan, as stated in the other reply.
      Two: Cannabis is completely unnecessary in this recipe; you’re an idiot.
      Three: Why did you even bother posting this, as it’s not vegan, and just some weirdo hippie recipe for pot cookies?
