  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons soy milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet vegan chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars together with a mixer.
  • Add the egg and vanilla to the butter and sugar and mix until combined.
  • In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cocoa, espresso, and salt. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture using a mixer. Beat until a soft dough forms.
  • Stir in chocolate chips. Scoop a tablespoon of the dough out, roll it into a ball, and place it on a cookie sheet. Repeat for the rest of the dough.
  • Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes or until top starts to crack. Gently bang the pan on the counter after pulling from the oven to help cookies de-puff and spread. Allow to cool on pan for at least 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.


  • Measure your flour and cocoa powder correctly: spoon flour/cocoa powder into the cup and level with a knife to avoid using too much dry ingredients. 
  • Room temperature butter: the butter may still be cool to touch, but easily indent-able. Use a vegan stick butter rather than a tub butter for best results.
  • Cocoa powder: use all natural cocoa powder NOT Dutch processed.
  • Other cookie add-ins: pretzels, vegan M&Ms, white chocolate, crushed peppermint candies.
