I have been trying to incorporate using whole wheat flour with my baking, mixing it with all-purpose flour so I thought why not try with these chocolate chip cookies for a better option.

Trivia: Cookies originated in Persia as early as the 7th century AD reached Europe and eventually became well known in America.

Here are some recipes where I also use or added whole wheat flour

I remember growing up my father had to work away from us for a few days and I look forward to his return because I know he got me chocolate chip cookies like Chips Ahoy! And that is my ultimate kiddo snack.

But things are different after I embrace a more plant-based lifestyle enjoying dairy-free and vegan foods. So I am very happy to share with you this recipe of whole wheat vegan chocolate chip cookies.

Which Flour To Use?

You can use whole wheat flour of your choice, in some countries there’s whole grain flour which is more grainy than whole wheat and darker in color. Both are healthy although I have not tried whole grain flour with these chocolate chip cookies.

You can still use regular unbleached all-purpose flour if that’s what you have in your pantry but my goal for this recipe is to use whole wheat flour without sacrificing the taste of the cookies.

It’s crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside with just the right amount of sweetness to balance a healthy and delicious cookie.

Whole wheat flour has more fiber and higher protein than all-purpose flour although it can also be denser and therefore not advisable to use alone on cakes. While all-purpose flour like its name it can be used in baking anything, cakes, bread, muffins, and cupcakes.

Other chocolate chip cookies call for white sugar and brown sugar but I didn’t use or added any white sugar in this recipe. If you like it to be sweeter you can add up to half a cup (½ cup) of white sugar cane.

Is This Dairy-Free?

These cookies are absolutely dairy-free using plant-based milk and vegan because I didn’t use eggs. 

I didn’t even use an egg replacer to make these whole wheat vegan chocolate chip cookies. But for the chocolate chips, be sure to look for vegan options.

Whole Wheat Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

  • ¾ cups natural brown cane sugar
  • 1½ cups whole wheat flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil ( or other neutral oil: canola oil, grapeseed oil)
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy unsweetened milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips

Instructions

In a medium-size bowl add liquid ingredients including sugar. Add sugar, coconut oil, non-dairy milk, and vanilla. Mix until everything is combined and sugar is almost dissolved.

In a separate bowl, sift and mix together whole wheat flour, baking soda, and salt. 

Add the dry ingredients to the liquid mixture and mix well. Add the chocolate chips and have it fold well in the dough.

Chill the dough in the fridge for about 1-2 hours or in the freezer for 30 minutes so that the dough mixture is easier to scoop and doesn’t stick.

While waiting you can start to preheat the oven to 350F or 180C.

 Prepare your baking tray and put it in parchment paper or a silicone sheet.

Using an ice cream scoop, scoop the dough and put it in the baking tray giving enough space.

Bake for about 15-18 minutes. 

Remove from the oven and place in a cooling tray. The cookies are still not ready to be eaten. Allow it to completely cool before eating.

Once it is completely cool, serve and enjoy.

For leftovers, transfer in a cookie jar or airtight container.

The cookies can last for up to 3 days or a week and longer if kept in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

  • Baking the cookies for about 15 minutes, it’s a little crispy outside and soft and chewy inside.
  • Baking for about 18 minutes it has the right crispiness outside and still soft and chewy inside.
  • Baking it for about 20 minutes or more it has this nice crispy texture outside and a little soft inside.
  • Once you remove the cookies from the oven let it cool for 20-30 minutes because during this time the cookies are still settling or cooking inside.
  • Enjoy these whole wheat cookies with a cup of hot chocolate or milk.
  • I have not tried this recipe with gluten-free flour but if you have a well-tested gluten-free flour you can also use that to make these chocolate chip cookies.
