Fudgy Vegan Triple Chocolate Cookies

…until I taste another chocolate cookie and deem it the BEST chocolate cookie.  But for now this recipe is plenty good.

Andrew, that person I live with who doesn’t think chocolate and peanut butter should go together.  He is also the person who says things when he’s half asleep like, “did you see that person come out of the closet?”  So creepy.  

But he tasted these and was instantly like, “there is peanut butter in there. Isn’t there?”  But he wasn’t excited there was peanut butter in them, he was totally bummed.

Which makes me totally bummed because I married such a weirdo.  Regardless he happens to be my favorite person.

And it’s his birthday week! Yesterday I asked Andrew what he wanted for his lunches for the week and her requested a chicken + rice casserole his mom makes.  I don’t always make his lunches.  It’s kinda like whoever has more time Sunday afternoon will make his lunches.

But anyways.  I got the recipe from his mom, made it, he tried it and…he gently told he the rice was still crunchy.  And he didn’t say this, but I totally know it didn’t come out as good as his moms does.  You can’t touch a mom’s cooking.  Because it’s not really the food.  It’s 20+ years of memories.

Moving on.

A couple weeks ago a cookie craving took hold and I started looking for a recipe to make.  For some reason vegan cookies sounded like a good idea since occasionally I think the flax egg thing is fun, mainly because I feel like no egg = you can leave the cookies super duper undercooked.

The key to these cookies is the multitude of chocolate chips.  I used 3 different kinds –> dark chocolate chunks, dark chocolate chips and milk chocolate chips.

ALSO key is mixing the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour.  I learned this trick from my best friend’s mom.  The all-purpose flour makes them tender and the wheat flour gives them a greater flavor depth.  As a child I thought wheat flour was the nastiest thing in life.  I feel differently now.

Fudgy Vegan Triple Chocolate Cookies

Yield: bakers dozen

Prep Time: 12 minutes

Cook Time: 8 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


dry ingredients
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt (i used pink himalayan to feel fancy)
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
3/4 cup chocolate chips + more to top (I used a mix of 62% dark chocolate baking chunks, dark chocolate chips and milk chocolate chips)

wet ingredients
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water
5 tablespoons almondmilk
1/4 cup virgin coconut oil, not melted
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


In a bowl, combine ground flax with water.

Preheat oven to 350ºF.  In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients.  In a separate bowl, combine hard coconut oil with peanut butter, almondmilk and vanilla.  Into the dry ingredients, add coconut oil mixture and flax egg.  Combine until a dough forms.

Roll dough into 12 balls and press flat with your finger tips.  Cookies will not spread well on their own.  Top with additional chocolate chips.  Bake for 8 minutes.  If they look underbaked when you take them out of the oven, perfect.  That's how you want them.  They will harden a bit as they cool.

See the chocolate chip variety above? It’s how a chocolate cookie should be. 


  1. Andrew is wrong- chocolate and peanut butter are basically married- by far my favorite flavor combo! But tell Andrew happy birthday anyways :)

  2. I cannot get enough pb and chocolate lately! These cookies are da bomb!

  3. Well, I’m excited that there’s peanut butter in there! Three types of chocolate + peanut butter = dreams. (And happy birthday week to Andrew!)

  4. Ugh fine you convinced me, i’ll make them!!!!!


  5. Andrew is literally the first person (in my entire life!) who I have heard that doesn’t like PB & chocolate… say what?! Totally crazy, but these look like heaven to me!

  6. These are gorgeous, Kylie! I’m thinking I might swap the milk chocolate chips for TJ’s mini peanut butter cups because I always have a container of them in my pantry :)

  7. Oh yay!!!! I’ve been waiting for this recipe :-)

  8. Kyle is the same way!  I make a cookie and he tastes it and he’s like, “There’s peanut butter in it…” and I’m like, “There’s like a tablespoon of peanut butter!” And he’s like, “It’s still peanut butter…” Boys are weird.  I mean he also hates onions, and anything leafy and green.  Yet he’s my favourite person too. :)

  9. PB + Chocolate = Love. Andrew is wrong!! It’s my birthday week too, but nobody is making me lunches… :( what a fun idea!
    Also… technically wouldn’t the milk chocolate chips make the cookies not vegan? :)

  10. He doesn’t like chocolate + peanut butter??? What?! That’s the best food combo. Ever. And these cookies looking amazing, I am in awe of your food photography skills!
