  • ½ cup avocado oil
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk or any type of plant based milk
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate chopped (or chocolate chips)
  • cup walnuts chopped, optional


  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the avocado oil, almond milk, and sugars until combined. Add the vanilla extract and stir to combine. 
  • Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to the wet ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon until there are no more dry spots.
  • Once the cookie dough comes together, add the chopped chocolate and walnuts (if using). Fold until they are evenly distributed.
  • Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 12 hours and up to 24 hours. *Note: Do NOT skip this step!
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • After the cookie dough has chilled, use a cookie scoop to form 1½ tablespoon size cookie dough balls. Arrange the cookie cookie dough balls onto parchment lined baking sheets, making sure to leave 2 inches between each cookie.
  • Bake the cookies in your preheated oven for 11-12 minutes, or until the edges are set and the centers are slightly underbaked. Cool on the pans for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • Store: Store your dairy free and egg free chocolate chip cookies covered in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
  • Freeze: You can freeze baked cookies or unbaked cookie dough balls for up to 3 months.
  • Make ahead: To make cookies in advance, prepare the cookie dough balls and freeze them in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Once completely frozen, pack the cookie dough balls into an airtight container or freezer bar to freeze up to 3 months. Once you are ready to bake, remove the frozen cookie dough from the freezer and bake at 350ºF. Add 2-3 minutes to your baking time.
