First of all, thank you for every kind word about the Chocolate Covered T-Shirts.

And of course a huge thank you to everyone who’s been buying them.

I had to start cookie season a little early this year…

Two weeks ago while out running, I caught my foot on a raised sidewalk and slammed into the concrete, scraping my entire body, breaking my nose, and receiving a black eye more appropriate for Halloween than Thanksgiving. By some miracle, I didn’t break any other bones; but unsurprisingly I’ve had absolutely no desire to run since then.

Instead I’ve been hibernating inside my apartment, recovering and baking cookies – peanut butter cookies, Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies, gingerbread cookies, shortbread cookies, oatmeal cookies, and these chocolate brownie cookies.

It’s like a full Keebler cookie factory over here, just without the elves.

The brownie cookies have been one of the favorites among my taste-testers and myself.

It’s hard to go wrong with double chocolate!

Easy Vegan Chocolate Cookies

These cookies are like eating a fudge brownie and chocolate chip cookie, all in the same dessert!

You can even make the dough ahead of time if you wish and freeze individual chocolate cookie dough balls, to keep on hand for a cold or rainy day when you want a quick homemade cookie fix, without all the work.

Apparently the unbaked cookie dough balls are also reallllly good eaten straight from the freezer.

Not that I know this from experience or anything…

Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Rich, dark, and super fudgy vegan chocolate brownie cookies.
4.91/5 (47)
Total Time 9 minutes
Yield 15 – 19 cookies


  • 1 cup spelt, white, or oat flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar, unrefined if desired
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp + 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 6 tbsp oil
  • 2 tbsp milk of choice
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips or sugar free chocolate chips


  • *For a keto version, try these Keto Chocolate Cookies.
    Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. It’s important to stir well so you don’t end up with a clump of baking soda in the finished cookies. Stir remaining ingredients in to form a batter (see video for a visual of the steps). If using all purpose flour, you might need to add 2-3 tsp more oil or milk of choice. Roll into balls. You can refrigerate overnight or even freeze for a later date if desired. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 325 F and grease a cookie sheet. Bake 9 minutes – they should look underdone when you take them out. Let sit 10 minutes and they will firm up. I pressed each cookie down after baking. Notes: Feel free to make whatever sized cookies you wish. I used a mini cookie scoop and got 19 the size of the ones in the pictures. I’ve not tried the recipe without the mini chips or using any flour not listed above, so make substitutions at your own risk.

    These are delicious! I used white whole wheat flour, and it required a bit more oil and milk to get a consistency where it would stick together. They are quite crumbly, but very good.

  2. Ugeta Sekar says

    I’m so glad I tried your recipe they were the best even my friends loved it and can’t stop thinking about them!

  3. Diane says

    The cookie dough is really dry so I added a bit more milk and oil to get them to form a ball. This recipe could use some tweaking. Maybe include an egg in the recipe

  4. Briana says

    These are GREAT! After reading the comments I decided to go a tiny bit heavy handed on the oil and the milk, (I used oat,) and it wasn’t dry at all. I realized I was out of vanilla extract at the last minute, so I substituted with Kahlua and it worked out great! 😀
    I added a little cinnamon for magick, added walnuts to half, and the other half I sprinkled with crushed candy canes after baking. Both came out AMAZING! They didn’t last long, I’m glad it’s such a quick and easy recipe because my family is already asking for more!

    I am getting ready to make these cookies. Katie states ” I used a mini cookie scoop and got 19 the size of the ones in the pictures.” However, I don’t know how large a mini cookie scoop is and the pictures only show the cookies. It would be helpful if you could say what size cookie it makes (2′ or 3″, for example) or if you put the cookies next to some common object (a kiwi fruit or a paper muffin baking cup) so we can estimate the cookies size. Thanks for considering this suggestion.

  6. Vivian says

    I made these using spelt flour and apple sauce in place of the oil. They turned out just fine. My mini chocolate chips are only 45% chocolate so I think I will substitute regular chips next time as they have a more “chocolatey” taste (55%.) I was surprised that mine looked pretty much like the picture. 🙂
