I can’t believe this is my first cookie recipe for the blog! We’ve had Donuts, Brownies, and Banana Breads, but not a single cookie.

The good news is, this Double Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is absolutely delicious. The bad news is, it’s going to be a hard one to top.

To me, the perfect cookie is fudgy, slightly fluffy, and perfectly sweet. These chocolatey rounds hit all of those marks! Plus, they’re actually made with good ingredients too. No animal products or hydrogenated oils to see here 😉

I used the Enjoy Life Foods Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Chips to make this recipe, because (1) everything is better when it’s fun-sized, and (2) all Enjoy Life products are allergen-friendly! Enjoy Life specializes in products that are not only free from the top 8 allergens, but also free from Coconut, Sesame, Potato, Casein, and Sulfites. For products that are free from so many things, they sure do pack a lot of flavor!

So, not only are these  Double Chocolate Chip Cookies Vegan, but they are also Gluten Free and Nut Free too! A lot of Vegan recipes tend to have nuts in them, so when I went about recipe testing this nut-free cookie, I was a little intimidated at first. Luckily Sunflower Seed Butter is a great substitute for the creaminess of a normal nut butter. I found mine at Trader Joe’s, but I’ve seen it in a lot of other different stores as well.

Do you have an allergy? I am very grateful that I do not have any food intolerances, but I have several close friends who do. I’ve seen how hard it can be to find allergen-friendly recipes that are easy AND delicious, which is why I am so happy to share these with you. If you’re looking for more allergen-friendly recipes on my blog, be sure to check out my Baked Vegan Mac & Cheese. It’s one of my favorites!

But for now, let’s get on to baking those cookies. If you do recreate this recipe, be sure to tag me on Instagram @frommybowl + #frommybowl, so I can see your yummy recreations 🙂

  • Author: Caitlin Shoemaker
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 12 minutes
  • Total Time: 32 minutes
  • Yield: 20 Cookies 1x


  • 2 tbsp Ground Flax Seed + 6 tbsp Water
  • 3/4 cup Enjoy Life Foods Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup Cacao Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt, see notes
  • 1 cup Enjoy Life Foods Mini Chocolate Chips, divided
  • 1/4 cup Plant Based Milk (Hemp, Oat, Soy, etc.)
  • 1/3 cup Sunflower Seed Butter
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


  1. Preaheat your oven to 350F. In a small bowl, combine the Ground Flax with 6 tbsp of Water and stir well. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, combine the Flour, Cacao Powder, Baking Powder, and Salt together in a large bowl. Stir well.
  3. Using a double boiler, melt 1/2 cup of the Mini Chocolate Chips. Add this to a medium bowl, then mix in the Sunflower Butter until evenly incorporated.
  4. Next, add in the Plant Milk, Flax Egg, and Vanilla Extract to the bowl. Stir well. (Note: it is important to mix the melted chocolate with room temperature ingredients first, so it does not solidify)
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and stir gently until just combined. Fold the remaining 1/2 cup of Chocolate Chips into the batter.
  6. Using a 1 tbsp measure, scoop out portions of the cookie dough, and form into round shapes – these cookies will not expand much in the oven. Place on a lined baking tray, then bake for 12-14 minutes.
  7. Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container at room temperature, where they will last for 5 – 7 days.


Flax Seed may be substituted with Ground Chia Seeds.

I have not tested this recipe with any other flours other than this one by Enjoy Life Foods, but I imagine any other GF flour blend would do. I would not recommend using solely Oat Flour for this recipe.

* The Sunflower Butter I purchased already had Salt in it, hence why I reduced the Salt in this recipe to only 1/4 tsp. If yours is unsalted, I would recommend using 1/2 tsp Salt instead!

  1. Delicious and easy cookie recipe! I made these for a plane snack and they were the perfect thing to have. I made them with regular AP flour instead of the 1-1 blend.

  2. Hey just wondering! If I don’t want it double chocolate chip will it still taste good? I’m making it for someone who’s allergic to GF, Nuts & Dairy

    1. Certainly! If you want to make these cookies without the double chocolate chips, they will still taste good. The primary chocolate flavor comes from the cacao powder and the melted chocolate chips in the batter. You can simply omit the mini chocolate chips that are folded into the batter at the end.

  3. WOW delicious!!!
    I see many people have asked about flours – I used all purpose and it turned out wonderful 🙂 1:1 substitute.

  4. I used whole wheat flour because that’s all I had in the kitchen, and used peanut butter instead of sunflower.
    They’re the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve had in a long time! They even have a slight hint of the betty crocker blend I used to eat when I was little! Thanks soooo much for sharing!!!!

    1. Those are both great substitutes! That’s so kind – glad it could bring back a little bit of childhood for you!

  5. I made these with almond floud and cashew butter. They turned out AMAZING! Much like a brownie in texture.
