My kid’s favorite, allergy-friendly Chocolate Chip Cookies with crisp golden edges & a chewy center.
Chocolate Chip cookies are my kryptonite!
Weakening my will, enticing my taste buds and drawing me in. “Darn you cookies!”.
Easy to Make Allergy-friendly Cookies
Thankfully, now that my daughter has learned to bake these, she has been the one in the kitchen fighting off the boys. She must think its worth it though, since she makes these a lot. Often, my husband and I return from “date-night” only to enter into our home filled with the smell of fresh-baked cookies and a kitchen layered in cookie sheets and flour.
At least she has the baking part of it down. Next will be the cleaning!
YUMMY Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies
In all honesty, I actually do make these cookies for my kiddos (my youngest especially) so that they have homemade & allergy safe treats available. But I can still eat one, or 2, right? After all, making these addictive cookies is no easy task; try whipping up a batch while fending off crazed children from grabbing every dough covered spoon and spatula before being finished with using them. That’s definitely worth a second cookie.
But in the end, a few extra minutes of cleaning is SO worth the smile it puts on my son’s face. Knowing that he is able to enjoy a warm cookie with rich, melted chocolate chips anytime he wants, without worrying about his allergies, makes me happy. It also makes me happy that this recipe is loved by everyone who has tried it both with and without allergies.
Now that’s a DARN GOOD Cookie!

The Best Crispy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies, especially when they are allergy-friendly! Crisp golden edges with chewy center, just like your favorite.
- 2 1/4 C. all purpose flour (or use Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten free)
- 1 TB. arrowroot (or cornstarch)
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 3/4 C. vegan butter (Earth Balance)
- 1/2 C. cane sugar
- 1/2 C. brown sugar
- 1/4 C. water
- 1 TB. pure vanilla extract
- 1 C. chocolate chips ( feel free to add a little more)
- Preheat oven to 325° degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or silcone mat.
- In medium bowl, whisk together flour, arrowroot, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Using an electric mixer, beat the margarine, sugar, brown sugar, water, and vanilla, until fluffy. Stir in the flour mixture ½ cup at a time, and then add 1 cup chocolate chips .
- Scoop about 2 tablespoons of dough at a time onto the prepared baking sheet and flatten it with the palm of your hand. Repeat with remaining dough, leaving about 2 inches between each cookie. Bake for approximately 12 to 18 minutes, until the edges begin to brown and the center of the cookie is a nice golden color. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
To prevent cookies from spreading:
- use cold stick butter
- refrigerate cookie dough at least 15 minutes before baking

You can never have too many chocolate chip cookie recipes. I mean, cookies are life and these sound delicious. Nothing like a good old chocolate chip cookie.
Cookies are a MUST for sure.
Linda from Veganosity says
1 or 2? I’d eat many more than that! Cookie Monster has nothing on me when it comes to a good chocolate chip cookie. These look delicious, Nicole.
well, I totally need to try these! I love chocolate chip cookies, and must try them all… 🙂
Alisa Fleming says
You know, I grew up practically addicted to chocolate chip cookies. But one day, I just stopped eating them – no idea why! Looking at this recipe, I think it’s time to reinstate that treat.
I don’t know if I could ever stop eating chocolate chip cookies (probably why I started making vegan ones). Hope the unintentional cookie ban gets reinstated.
The Vegan 8 says
Nothing better than a classic chocolate chip cookie! They are such a crowd-pleaser and these look delicious! Love how big they look too! Too cute about your daughter making them all the time now 🙂
A classic for sure but the best are always homemade, aren’t they?
hi Nicole I was looking at your Best chocolate chip cookies they look great.Under the ingredients what is Bobs Red Mill 1-3 Glu 30
Nicole Dawson says
Hi Lynn, It’s Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-free Flour and I use the 1-1 blend so it’s an even exchange for those who wish to use All purpose flour or transitioning to a gf recipe.
Any tips of I’d like to make these but only with 1/4c-1/2c of sugar?
Nicole Dawson says
Most recommend reducing sugar in a recipe by 1/4 to start and no more than 1/3 since it not only affects the sweetness, but it also helps with texture, spreading and crisp edges.
hi! cloud i use baking powder instead of baking soda?
Nicole Dawson says
Baking powder contains baking soda, so if you were to try it, I’d suggest at least doubling the amount since it contains less active ingredients to help rise. In addition, baking powder produces a slightly different texture in cookies than baking soda does. While baking soda will create a coarse, chewy cookie texture, baking powder will produce a light, fine cookie texture.
