Chocolate Chip Cookies on plateI call these "The Best" because I have been playing with this cookie recipe for about four years. When I tried them this time around, I was so thrilled to share them with you! I have my ups and my downs inside my test kitchen, and this is way up. You can substitute the peanut butter with other nut butters if you like. In this batch, I made two versions, one with a bit more added oatmeal (just for fun and texture). Play around with this and see what strikes your fancy. These have been such a hit with vegan friends!


If you're not aiming to be fully vegan, but want some of the best cookies ever, of course you can just use regular chocolate chips that contain milk. ;)

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 24-36 cookies


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips

  11. If you'd like one of the batches to have more oats like I did (to please different types of crowds), separate the dough and add more to one. You can also do this with things like nuts or more chocolate! Pop dough in the fridge for about 20 minutes.

  13. Make mounds of the dough on prepared baking sheets. I made two different sized cookies for the two different types. Place in oven and bake for about 18-20 minutes, until lightly golden.
