This is the best Grain-Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe ever! No butter, eggs, white flour or refined sugar. Just a simple, easy, healthy and delicious chocolate chip cookie that turns out perfectly every single time!
I have tried several flourless, grain-free vegan chocolate chip cookie recipes, but none of them seemed to deliver. Something just didn’t seem right.
So I continued my search for the best grain-free and vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe since my son had been asking me all morning to make chocolate chip cookies.
I already have some other gluten-free and vegan chocolate chip cookie recipes on my website that I usually rotate, like these:
- Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Gluten-Free Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
- Flourless Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies
- Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Banana Walnut Cookies
But today I wanted something different!
So I went online and looked at several different recipes and they either didn’t look right or didn’t look appetizing. Until I found this one.
And after making them…I knew I had found a keeper!

Making grain-free and vegan chocolate chips cookies are just as easy as making traditional ones…you’ll just be using cleaner ingredients!

How Do You Make Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies?
You can make chocolate chip cookies vegan by substituting regular eggs with “flax eggs”.
The “flax eggs” act as a binder in the recipe, the same way an egg would.
All you have to do is whisk together two simple ingredients: ground flax seeds + water.
The “recipe” for one flax egg is 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds + 3 tablespoons of water.
If you were making a recipe that called for two flax eggs, like in this gluten-free vegan chocolate chip recipe, then you would use 2 tablespoons of ground flax seeds + 6 tablespoons of water.
