When I was little, my mom made the best chocolate chip cookies using the Nestlé Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe. I veganized and slightly improve the healthfulness of this good, old fashion recipe. And the best part is that you can enjoy these cookies knowing that they are made from completely animal friendly ingredients.


1 ¼ cup organic whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup unbleached organic white flour
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
½ cup vegan “butter”
½ cup organic vegetable shortening (made from palm oil, safe for 450º)
¾ cup organic sugar
¾ cup organic brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 “eggs” (prepared Ener-g Egg Replacer)
9 ounce bag of Organic Dark Chocolate Chips

  1. Combine both flours, baking soda, and salt in small bowl.
  2. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat shortening, butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Add eggs and continue beating until well mixed.
  3. Gradually mix in flour mixture.
  4. I like to roll my cookies into balls so at this point I test the consistency. Sometimes, I add another tablespoon or two of flour.
  5. Preheat oven to 375º.
  6. Mix in chocolate chips with your hands.
  7. Form 1 inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  8. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes (in my oven it is 10 minutes). Cool on baking sheets for about 1 minute and then place on wire racks to cool completely.

Today this recipe made 46 cookies so I figured the nutrional data for both recipes based on 46 cookies.

  1. Thanks for this! I am a vegan, and i love cookies!!!

  2. how do these keep? would they be good for the next couple days or week? do they tend to get crispy at all? i’d like to make this for an upcoming party but would have to make them a day in advance… thank you!!! :)

  3. In an airtight container, these cookies will keep for at least 4 days. We have never had them in the house longer than 4 days because they are so yummy, we eat them quickly. I think they would keep as long as nonvegan cookies. Enjoy!
