This “Peppermint Double Chocolate Chip Cookies” is a showstopper centerpiece whatever the occasion. Richly flavored, it satisfies vegans and non-vegans alike! Made with simple ingredients, this vegetarian Plant Based recipe is easy to make.
If you’re like me and always feel short on time and don’t want to babysit something for hours, this is a great easy vegan recipe for you:


  • 1 1/2 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 cup all purpose flour or gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • OPTIONAL: Vegan Peppermint Marshmallows


Preheat heat oven to 350F. Combine ground flaxseed and water in a small bowl, then set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, sift in flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt through a mesh strainer to remove clumps and mix together well. To a separate microwave bowl, add chocolate chips, vegan butter, and maple syrup and place into the microwave for 15 seconds. Stir well to mix some of the melted chocolate, and repeat until all the chocolate is fully melted (this took about a total of 3 times 15 seconds each to melt completely). To the chocolate stir in the brown sugar, peppermint extract and vanilla extract until well incorporated. Once all the liquids are mixed, add the flax mixture and the melted chocolate mix into the bowl with flour. With a spatula, fold in chocolate and flour together until a dough forms. Add in chocolate chips and again fold them into the dough. With a cookie scoop, scoop out a portion of your dough and roll into a ball or at this point push 3-4 vegan marshmallows into the dough and wrap the dough ball around the marshmallows into a ball shape. Place all of the rolled dough balls onto a lined baking sheet and very lightly press down on them to slightly flatten. Place in the oven to bake for about 11-13 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. If you’d like extra chocolate, feel free to press chocolate bar pieces into the center while still warm to lightly melt before enjoying.
