Vegan Levain Chocolate Chip Cookies

Megan Calipari
These Vegan Levain Chocolate Chip Cookies bake up just like the original: Thick, decadent, chewy, soft, and filled to the brim with chocolate chips. But, these cookies are completely vegan.

  • Mixing Bowl
  • Spoon
  • Baking Sheet


  • 1 Stick Non-Dairy Butter I used Earth Balance Soy Free Buttery Sticks
  • 1 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Molasses bot blackstrap
  • 2 tablespoon Ground Flax Seed
  • 5 tablespoon Water
  • 2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 ¼ Cups Flour
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ¾ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 2 ¼ Cup Chocolate Chips


  • In a small bowl, combine flax, water and vanilla. Stir and set aside.
  • In a large bowl with a wooden spoon, or in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the non dairy butter, sugar and molasses until well combined and creamy.
  • Add the flax mixture and stir well to combine.
  • Add the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cornstarch into the bowl and combine. This dough is really thick so if you are mixing with a bowl and spoon you will be using some elbow grease.
  • Add chocolate chips, stir to distribute.
  • Cover and refrigerate dough for 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350* F and line a baking sheet with parchment.
  • Spray a ⅓ cup measure with nonstick spray and pack the dough into the measuring cup. Use a spoon to help remove the dough. Then, roll into a ball using the palm of your hands.
  • Arrange 6 dough balls onto a parchment lined baking tray, evenly spaced, placing the other 6 back into the refrigerator until they are going to be baked.
  • Bake at 350* on the middle rack of your oven for a total of 17-20 minutes, rotating the baking sheet after 12 and then baking for 5-8 minutes longer.
  • Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes, then move to a wire rack to continue cooling.
