Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten-Free & Vegan) 🍪

Gluten-free vegan chocolate chip cookies

I know it’s late on a Sunday night, but I wanted to get this delicious gluten free & vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe up asap! I’m having a hard time focussing on writing because the Ted Bundy documentary is playing in the background. How does one write about tasty cookies when talks of a serial killer are going off in the background? Yikes.
Chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorite desserts. I love to keep them in a container in the freezer for when I’m craving them, but they don’t last long because Kyle seems to find them quickly. I had been working on a new recipe for vegan chocolate chip cookies that are gluten-free, and it finally came together. I’m so excited to share it with you all, and I hope you make these! You won’t be disappointed.

These cookies are soft and taste like the dreamiest chocolate chip cookie! They were born to be dunked in a cold glass of milk (almond milk for me!) I guarantee, the average person will not be able to tell that these are a bit lighter, gluten-free, and vegan!
All you need is flaxseeds, water, sea salt, baking soda, all-purpose gluten-free flour, vegan butter, coconut sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, vegan and chocolate chip. You can use any sugar replacements to replace the coconut sugar. I used Lily’s no sugar added chocolate chips.

The flaxseed needs to be mixed with water and set aside for a couple of minutes before combining!

This recipe is so simple and can be made within 20-minutes! 
Preheat oven to 350-degrees.

First, you’ll beat the softened butter on high until it’s creamy. 
Use a spatula to scrape down the butter. Add brown sugar, coconut sugar, and vanilla. Mix until it’s completely lump-free.

Sift the flour, sea salt, and baking soda together.
Add the flaxseed mixture to the mixer. 
On low speed, add sifted flour by the spoonful into the mixer until all flour is incorporated. 
Mix in the chocolate chips! 
The dough might taste a little “flax-y,” but it bakes out. You couldn’t taste the flaxseed at all once the cookies were fully baked. Ohhhhh, they smelled so good!!!! 
Scoop two-tablespoon sized dough balls onto an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake 10-13 minutes! 
Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack with a spatula!
