Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

After deliberate trials of different recipes, I have found the perfect dairy-free chocolate chip cookie recipe for you all. It has the right brown and castor sugar mix to make it soft and a bit chewy. And you get the delicious dark chocolate chunks in every bite.

Baking was invented using four major ingredients – flour, butter, eggs, and sugar. Removing either of the ingredients makes it challenging for any baker to prepare a recipe. Vegan baking is all about making products egg-free and dairy-free, which means no eggs, butter, yoghurt, or milk! The good thing is we have numerous dairy–free products available now. For this recipe also, I have used dairy-free ingredients like vegan butter, vegan milk and vegan dark chocolate.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe?

  • Curated carefully for vegans: the recipe is specifically designed for people who follow a vegan diet. It isn’t easy to find a good baking recipe, so I have been careful to give out the recipe that is not just good but the best!
  • Tastes like Dairy cookies: although made using dairy-free products, they taste similar to your regular dairy cookies. That’s a huge plus about this recipe.
  • The Right Balance of Ingredients: numerous vegan cookie recipes are available, but not all work out well. Since I have tried and tested the recipe ratios a few times, I have ensured that the recipe is perfect every time you bake.

Important ingredients Used in Dairy-free Cookies

  • Vegan butter: vegan butter can be replaced with regular dairy butter in the same ratio as both contain 80% fat. We made our own vegan butter, but you can easily find vegan butter online or in big departmental stores.
  • Dairy-free dark chocolate: the chocolates we use, like Van Houten, Callebaut or Cadbury, are all made using dairy products. So be mindful when selecting chocolate for vegan recipes. I have used the brand Ditch the Guilt.
  • Soy Milk: various brands are available for soy milk; you may use any. Soy milk plays the same role dairy milk does in a cookie which is to bind the dough and provides moisture along with richness. For your reference, I have used the life health food brand.

How To Make Dairy-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies?

  • Creaming: start with creaming vegan butter with castor and brown sugar. Beat until it’s light and fluffy.

  • Add Liquids: Add vanilla bean paste and soy milk to the creamed butter.

  • Collect dry ingredients: in a bowl, collect your dry ingredients, i.e. flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Making the dough: add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix to form a dough.
  • Add Chopped chocolate: once the dough is ready, add your vegan chocolate and give it a final mix.

  • Shaping: make balls weighing 60g each from the dough and place them on a lined baking tray.

  • Freezing: Put the balls in the fridge to freeze for 15-20 minutes.
  • Bake: Finally, bake in a preheated oven at 180c (OTG mode: lower rod + upper rod + fan) for 12-15 minutes.

Chef’s Tips For The Recipe

Use Room Temperature Ingredients

Ensure that your ingredients are at room temperature. Too warm or too cold ingredients hinder the texture of the final product.

Vanilla Bean Paste Substitute

Vanilla bean paste is an expensive ingredient. It is not necessary to use paste; instead, you may use your regular vanilla essence. Quantity will be more than paste as the essence is diluted and paste is concentrated.

Freezing The Dough

It’s important to freeze the shaped cookie dough balls before baking to prevent the extra spreading of cookies while baking.

How To Store Dairy-free Cookies?

Store the cookies in an airtight box at room temperature. They will last 4-5 days.

You can store leftover cookie dough as well. Cling wrap it, put it in an airtight box and freeze it for up to 2 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are vegan cookies healthier than dairy cookies?

That is not exactly true. Dairy-free or vegan ingredients still have fat in them. And we are adding regular sugar to the recipes. So, it isn’t true that vegan cookies are healthier.

What can I use instead of butter in the vegan product?

There are a couple of options available. Vegan butter, vegetable shortening and coconut oil are the best substitutes for dairy butter.

Why are my vegan cookies cakey?

This may happen due to excess of the leavening agent in the cookies. If there is too much quantity of baking powder or soda in the dough, it will rise more than needed and give a cakey structure to the cookies.

“I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date”
Before this program I knew a little about manifestations, but as I discovered during the program, I had a lot of limiting beliefs that kept me from fully embracing and accepting myself as a manifestor.
During this program I became more aware of what manifestation is and how powerful I am. I become more aware of my guides, of my highest self and that I can pull the best of my highest self into my present. Since this program I no longer wrestle with trying to convince myself that what I desire will happen. I know that it has happened, it is done and it is mine, here and now. I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date, my eyesight has improved and I no longer need glasses for distance vision, only for reading, I gave myself a make-over as part of my commitment to my renewal and I began to de-clutter my space.

“My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes”
Joining “The Art of Manifesting” was a life-changing decision for me. This is now the third time going through the quest and focusing on different areas of manifestation.
Regan is a powerful guide and she walks the talk.
This 28-day journey was a blend of practical techniques and profound energetical activations. I learned to visualize my goals clearly, expand my possibilities, and overcome the limitations holding me back from living a life i desire. The quest’s unique approach to identity hacking helped me align my inner self with my aspirations, making the manifestation process more effective and authentic.
The biggest takeaway for me was the acceleration of manifestation by bending time and tapping into the highest frequencies. The techniques taught in the quest enabled me to see results much faster than I expected. My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes, and goals that once seemed unattainable are now within reach.
I’m beyond grateful for the wisdom and tools I’ve gained from this quest and Regan. It’s not just about manifesting; it’s about transforming your entire lifestyle. I highly recommend “The Art of Manifesting” to anyone looking to turn their dreams into reality.

“This course and listening to Regan’s podcasts gave me the tools to acknowledge my blocks and mindsets around drinking”
I have so enjoyed this journey with Regan, I am a new person as a result of this quest. I now have new beliefs & mindsets that I keep working on daily, hourly. A kinder and more compassionate version of me has emerged over this journey, and I love her!
This quest has resulted in me finding the lost me, the me that has been hidden under the voices of doubt, fear or just lack of awareness that I get to run my life not the other voices in my head or family and people around me. When we wire ourselves to the future version of us, then we make different choices and we are already a different person!
Thank you Regan, thank you Mindvalley, thank you tribe!!!! ❤❤, I love you all and wish you a magical Christmas and hope our paths may cross one day at Mindvalley events.

“My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest”
Before taking this Quest I believed that the prerequisites of success were hard work, long hours, timing and a degree of luck; “1% inspiration and 99% perspiration” was my mantra. Trying to achieve success with this mindset was exhausting, frustrating and unsustainable.


I then discovered The Art of Manifesting … and was blown away.


The foundational teaching of focusing on your inner world to achieve has been transformative in the way I live my life. I now know that cultivating the feeling of already being in possession of that which you want, accelerates the manifestation of what you desire.


My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest, and have discovered a path to manifest greater abundance in the year to come. But perhaps the biggest shift I experienced during this quest now knowing that I am worthy and deserving of abundance. Regan, I am eternally grateful to you, thank you :-)

“Now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered”
Before this program, I believed somewhat in manifestation but never knew how to do it, or if it was real, and the little bit I did know ended up being completely wrong! This Quest has not only taught me how to manifest and put me on the path to doing it the right way, but I was actually able to manifest what I had set at the beginning.
I never thought it would actually come true, but I committed myself to the process and gave it 100% every day. And now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered. It’s truly blowing my mind.
I had a financial goal for the end of the Quest, and different opportunities for selling my artwork started coming up, and the deals are coming out almost to the exact number I had set.
Not only that, but I have truly transformed into a better version of myself in these short weeks, more than I had in the last few years, that my spouse has even noticed.
I’m so excited for what’s to come next and so grateful for this program. Thank you.

“I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design”
I joined Mindvalley on New Year’s 2023. I am excited to share how life has significantly changed in the first 90 days of the year. Beginning with the Silva Method, I envisioned and transformed a dysfunctional personal relationship, into a loving, caring separation, allowing me the peace and serenity to follow my path, and my partner to choose his. In February while on the Art of Manifesting Quest I listed my intent to have a book written by May 2023, and have a speaking engagement booked by December 2023.
I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design, and a journal for Women seeking a deeper connection with themselves, also in design. Both will be uploaded via KDP Amazon self-publishing by May 1st.
I have booked a speaking engagement for May with the intent of having published books with me for sale.
Most importantly – this morning I changed my profile from ‘Document writer’ to ‘Author.’
Gratitude abounds!!!
