Thick and chewy gluten-free vegan cookies ingredients:

This amazing cookie recipe isn’t just gluten-free and vegan it’s also loaded with healthy ingredients like coconut oil and antioxidant-rich dark chocolate chunks. One could be tempted to call these cookies healthy (that’s what I tell myself whenever I chow down 5 cookies in as many minutes)…but I will leave the labeling up to you. 

This recipe uses coconut sugar to add a caramel flavored depth of sweetness as well as maple syrup to create that soft chewiness we’re looking for. 

Because these cookies are vegan I use flax egg as a binding agent. The flax egg could be substituted for any other type of vegan egg (or even real egg if you aren’t vegan).

Tips for baking the best chewy chocolate chip cookies 

This recipe is simple and straightforward, and so is baking the cookies. For the basic recipe, bake the cookies at 350F for 12-15 minutes depending on your oven. The cookies should be golden on the outside, and chewy on the inside.

If you want a extra crispy outside with a very chewy center, you can freeze the cookies for 20-minutes before baking and bake the cookies at 400F for 12-15 minutes depending on your oven.
