These almond butter cookies are soft and chewy with plenty of chocolate chips! They’re vegan, oil free, and delicious!


  • 1/2 cup smooth almond butter
  • 1/2 cup agave (see notes for substitutions)
  • 2 tablespoons applesauce (see notes for substitutions)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour or all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips


  1. Move your oven rack to the top-middle position.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Combine the almond butter, agave, coconut oil or applesauce, and vanilla until smooth.
  4. Stir in the whole wheat flour, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Add in the chocolate chips. The dough will be a bit sticky.
  6. Drop rounded tablespoons onto a cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for 9-11 minutes until lightly browned on top.


You can replace the applesauce with 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil

You can replace the agave with maple syrup or honey. (Although honey is not vegan.)
