How to make vegan double chocolate cookies
First, you need to start by preheating your oven to 350°F. Then, you will need to line your baking sheets with parchment paper to prevent the cookies from sticking to the baking sheet.
Next, add the vegan butter to the bowl of a standing mixer. Add the cane sugar to the bowl and mix the two ingredients together until they are light and fluffy.
Next, add your cocoa powder.
- Look for high-quality and organic cocoa powder labeled as “alkalized” or “Dutched,” as it is less bitter and has a smoother flavor.
- Check the ingredients list and choose cocoa powder that contains no additives, such as sugar, milk powder, or vegetable oil.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Measure the ingredients carefully to ensure the best results.
Then, pour in the soy milk and vanilla extract and mix until everything is well combined.
Fold in the vegan chocolate chips. Shape the cookies and bake for 10 min. Let the vegan cookies cool for 10-15min.
Baking tips for the best vegan chocolate cookies
- Quality of Ingredients: The better your chocolate and cocoa powder quality, the richer your cookies will taste. Look for good vegan chocolate with a high cocoa content.
- Butter Alternatives: Not all vegan butter are created equal. Some have higher water content, which can affect the cookie’s texture. Brands that mimic the fat content of real butter work best for baking. Use vegan butter substitutes like coconut oil or vegetable shortening.
- Oven Temperature: Make sure your oven is correctly calibrated. Baking at the right temperature is essential for the perfect texture. Vegan cookies may need less time in the oven because they tend to be softer and more delicate than traditional cookies.
- Don’t Overmix: Overmixing the dough, especially after adding flour, can activate gluten and make the cookies tough.
- Let Them Cool: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack. This helps them set without falling apart.
