  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegan light brown sugar I used Wholesome
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/3 cup vegan butter I used Earth Balance
  • 1/3 cup vegan shortening I used Spectrum
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract optional
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips divided (I used Enjoylife)


  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • In a large bowl, cream together sugars, applesauce, butter, and shortening.
  • Stir in vanilla extract if using. Set aside.
  • In a seperate bowl whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
  • Add dry mixture into wet mixture until a soft dough forms.
  • Fold in 3/4 cups chocolate chips.
  • Chill dough for 30 minutes. (optional but makes a chewier cookie)
  • Using a mini cookie scoop (about 1 tablespoon worth of dough) drop the cookies 2 inches apart. (I like to roll each ball in my hands to make them perfectly round and smooth)
  • Press the dough ball down gently to flatten then just a bit.
  • Using the remaining chocolate chips, press a few chocolate chips lightly into each ball.
  • Bake for 7 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let cool completely whil still on the pan.
  • Enjoy!
