Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies: Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook

This recipe is from our favorite cookbook Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook. If you are looking to buy just one Vegan cookbook, this is our recommendation.

Chocolate-Chocolate Chip-Walnut Cookies:

2 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 cup unsweetened Dutch-processed cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

2/3 cup canola oil

1 ½ cups sugar

4 teaspoons ground flaxseeds

½ cup soy milk

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

½ teaspoons almond extract

¾ cup vegan chocolate chips

¾ cup walnuts, chopped small

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate large bowl, mix together the oil and sugar. Add the flaxseeds, soy milk, and vanilla, and mix well.

Fold in the dry ingredients in batches. When the batter starts to get too stiff to mix with a fork, use hands until a ball of dough forms. Add the chocolate chips and walnuts, and mix with your hands again. A bit messy, but worth it.

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and flatten into disks about 1 ½ inches in diameter. Place about an inch apart on cookie sheets.

Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.


  1. I've made this recipe many times and it is hands down the BEST cookie recipe! A professor of mine passed it off to me and I have since loved it, so have my family and friends. I finally ordered the Veganomicon cookbook and am excited to make new vegan cookies. I usually leave out the almond extract and nuts, and sometimes add extra chocolate chips to make it extra fudge-y. These cookies come out tender and oh so chocolate-y I absolutely love it! Thanks for posting this on your blog!
