Vegan White Chocolate Cookies – Cookies are kids’ favorites. But we adults too love to eat cookies along with a hot cup of tea. Like nicely arranged fruits suit your table, similarly, cookies suit your kitchen cabinet.
You can bake the number of cookies, as you want to keep for a week. I always thought, why can’t I store my homemade cookies for months’ as I can store-bought cookies.
Now, I can answer myself. Homemade cookies are healthier and can’t be stored longer because they don’t contain preservatives and other harmful ingredients.
Vegan White Chocolate Cookies
These vegan white chocolate cookies are sweet and delicious, and a healthier option because they are dairy-free and egg-free! They come out perfect every time, and even the non-vegans in our family love them! I think the secret to their success is the extra vanilla in the dough. The only side effect is it makes your house smell amazing. 🙂
So, I’m currently in a bit of a baking marathon which continues with this recipe, which I’m posting as part of my Veganuary bid. I thus heartily encourage you to also give it a go.
I’ve made three batches of these vegan white chocolate cookies so far, and I’m now a bit stuck for recipe ideas. I’m thinking I might make two or three with other variations.
Vegan cookies are most demanded by kids. Let’s give these moms and other vegans a chance to celebrate happiness with the sweetness of these vegan white chocolate cookies.

- Ground flax seeds 1 tbsp + Water 1 tbsp
- Vegan Margarine – 7 oz (separate ¾ cup + 1 tbsp)
- Caster Sugar – 5.2 oz
- Soft brown sugar – 3.5 oz
- Vanilla Extract – 1 tsp
- Self-raising Flour – 11 oz
- Vegan White Chocolate Chips or chunks – 1/2 Cup
Follow the step-by-step guide to prepare soft, crunchy cookies for your children and dear ones. Be extra cautious with the measurements and baking.
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius and apply butter or spray non-sticking oil on the baking pans.
- Now take a small bowl and add flax seeds and water to it. Flax seeds will soak the water.
- Take another large-size bowl and add in vegan margarine, brown sugar and caster sugar. Mix them well and then add vanilla along with flaxseed mixture. Stir them.
- In the mixture, add self-raising flour in it and mix well. Now knead the dough.
- Now adds chocolate chips and wrap them in the dough.
- Make 12 balls out of the dough. Use fingers to flatten the dough balls on the tray. Space between cookies should be at least 3 to 4 inches. As clumping of cookies is not affordable.
- Baking time is twelve minutes and then cool them properly. Cookies will turn chewy once they are cooled. Baking time should not exceed 12 min as it would make them crispy.
Cooking Tips & Recipe Variations
Here are some of the tips for vegan chocolate cookies. You can try them for a smooth experience.
- You can add in some plant-based milk to soften the hard dough if required. If the dough is too soft, then you may add self-raising flour to it.
- You can store the cookies at room temperature. Use an airtight container for this. Storage time should not exceed 5 days.
- Adding brown sugar will make them chewier. Self-raising flour should not be replaced with regular flour as then they will not spread well. Regular flour makes them hard but self-raising flour makes them appear soft from the center and crispy from the corners.
- Vanilla extracts are a good alternative to cocoa powder for people who don’t like chocolate much.
Suggest some recipe variations.
White chocolate chips can be fused with other dark Choco chips or dried fruits or chopped macadamia nuts. You can also try coconut flakes or dried raspberries. You can add or omit any of the suggested ingredients. The main concern is the dough, and the rest can be modified as needed.
I don’t have vegan white chocolate at home. Where can I find it?
Well, in many countries vegan white chocolate is not sold over the counter and it’s really hard to spot in the grocery shop. So, if you can’t shop online or spot them in the grocery shop, simply take a white chocolate bar and break it into pieces (small like chunks).
How can you store cookies for later use?
Take an airtight container, fill in the cookies, close the lid and keep it aside at room temperature. You can also keep it in the fridge for five days.
Is freezing cookies healthy and an appropriate way to store them?
You may freeze the cookies. Take a plastic sheet, wrap them and store them for up to 60 days. When you want to eat, take them out, and wait until thawed. You can also freeze the dough and then thaw it before baking.

If you’re a vegan or vegetarian, and you miss white chocolate cookies, try these out. They’re a little work, but they’re very worth it. Enjoy vegan cookies either with a hot cup of chocolate or coffee.
