The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

Perfection!  I have finally created what I would call the perfect chocolate chip cookie.

You may remember me posting a couple of chocolate chip cookie recipes, all in search of the perfect cookie.  Though I have not posted every attempt it feels quite possible I have made  a gazillion tries, and today, I am going to claim victory!

Run right out and get the ingredients-- these are awesome!!

The  Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

2 cups unbleached flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp fine sea salt
1 cup vegan chocolate chips (I used Ghiradelli Semi Sweet)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup raw (turbinado) sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp almond milk (I used So Delicious Original Almond Plus)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and chocolate chips.

In a second bowl mix the oil and sugar and stir until well incorporated.  Add the almond milk and vanilla. Stir until all ingredients are well mixed.

Pour the wet into the dry and mix until a batter forms (it will be somewhat crumbly- that is OK).

Roll the cookies into balls, forming 24 in total. Place on two ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 350 for 14 minutes.  The cookies will not spread out much, but they will be cooked after about 14 minutes.



  1. I'm going to make these soon, can't wait! Also, I wanted to let you and your readers know that this week, I'm hosting a giveaway on my blog for a $50 gift certificate to! Just comment to enter!

    1. I hope you enjoy them and the giveaway sounds great!!!

  2. Not sure what I did wrong.. I must have not measured something in the wet ingredients properly with this one.. my dough turned out very liquid. I added more flour in small amounts mixing each time until I got a decent consistency.. they turned out amazing and in fact spread out more like a traditional choc chip recipe. I will definitely be making them again!!

    1. So glad it worked out for you! If can document your "mistake" I would love to try it :) Love when that happens!

  3. oh dear, thanks a million! I substituted the flour with whole wheat and they were very simply delicious!

    1. You are welcome! I made these a couple of days ago-- so good.... I am going to try them with whole wheat flour next as I just bought a five pound bag!
