How to Make a Single-Serving Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie

Author Chef Summer Storm - garden grub
This vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe creates ONE LARGE cookie. It is perfect for someone who perhaps lives alone and doesn't want to make an entire batch of cookies just for themselves. It is soft and chewy with crispy outer edges. It is also very quick and easy to make.

Servings 1 cookie


  • 1 tsp ground flax meal
  • 2 tsp water
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter, cold (I use the brand Earth Balance Original)
  • 3 tbsp organic brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, 100% pure
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips (I use the Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Mega Chunks)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a small baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
  • In a small ramekin, stir together the flax meal and water. Set this mixture aside to thicken while you gather the rest of the ingredients.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the cold butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and the flax/water mixture. Stir until evenly combined and the mix has turned slightly lighter and fluffier.
  • Now, add the flour, baking soda, cornstarch, and salt into the bowl. Stir until evenly combined.
  • Add in half of the vegan chocolate chips and stir until evenly distributed.
  • Form the dough into a ball and then press it into an inch thick disc shape. Place it on the baking sheet. Press the other half of the chocolate chips over the top of the cookie. (Alternatively, you can mix all of the chocolate chips into the dough.)
  • Place the baking sheet on the middle oven rack and bake the cookie for 12-14 minutes.
  • Allow the cookie to cool down slightly to completely set; otherwise, it may fall apart if eaten immediately because it is relatively big.
