Gluten-free Vegan Double Chocolate Cookies I

It all started because, on my last day at my last job, my supervisor kindly went to a local bakery to buy gluten-free and dairy-free treats and brought a vegan- and gluten-free double chocolate cookie. It was so delicious that for the past week I have been thinking of recreating it, and I looked for a promising recipe.

Three online recipes caught my attention: two required vegetable oil and some refrigeration, and one needed plant based margarine or virgin coconut oil, melted, and chickpea flour. I “booked” the kitchen for a couple of hours and went to work, resolute in my attempt to try all three recipes. Then I polled my family to see which was the best.

Of course, instead of coming to an agreement, we all had different opinions: two of us liked the Double Chocolate Cookies made with vegetable oil – the softest of the trio, one of us liked the Chocolate Brownie Cookies – the densest -, and the last liked the “Chickpea Flour” Double Chocolate Cookies. I didn’t really use chickpea flour but these did come out firmer than the other ones. I am going to let you all decide what you like best. They are really easy to make. I cut the refrigeration time with a quick freeze after shaping. Unfortunately the recipe format I use doesn’t let me publish more than one recipe per post, so I will create three different posts. I will link them all to one another. Please let me know what you like best in your comments here, on my Facebook page, or on my Instagram.

Prep time


Cooking time




  • 156 gr 156 Simona’s Flour Mix – 1 cup

  • 40 gr 40 Unsweetened cocoa powder – 1/2 cup

  • 113 gr 113 Light brown sugar – 1/2 cup

  • 3/4 tsp 3/4 Baking soda

  • 1/4 tsp 1/4 Baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp 1/4 Salt

  • 86 gr 86 Vegetable oil – 6 Tbsps

  • 40 gr 40 Nondairy creamer (I used So Delicious Organic Creamer Unsweetend, Coconut) – 3 Tbsps

  • 1 1/2 tsps 1 1/2 Vanilla extract

  • 60 Mini 60 Mini chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life) – 1/3 cup


  • Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and whisk well.
  • Stir oil, non-dairy creamer, vanilla and chocolate chips to forma a batter that holds together when pressed.
  • Use a medium cookie scoop if you have it, or just roll the dough into 2″ balls.
  • Place them on a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper, and put them in the freezer for at least 20 minutes. You can freeze the rolled cookie dough in bags for up to a month if you’d like.
  • In the meanwhile preheat oven to 350 F. Place the baking sheet in the oven when it reaches the desired.
  • Bake for 12 minutes, turning the sheet half way, and slightly pressing the cookies with a spatula to flatten them.
  • When ready, place the baking sheet on a cooling rack to let the cookie cool until firm. Be careful when you remove them because they are delicate.
