Recipe Ingredients

You can find the full printable recipe, including ingredient quantities, below. But first, here are some explanations of ingredients and steps to help you make this recipe perfect every time.

  • Vegan butter — My go-to favorite Earth Balance buttery sticks or make your own creamy vegan butter
  • Brown sugar — You can use either dark or light brown sugar or even make your own brown sugar
  • Granulated sugar
  • Flax egg — I recommend using a flax egg, but you could also use a chia egg as both have a neutral flavor
  • All-purpose flour — You can also use whole wheat pastry flour (which is different than whole wheat flour)
  • Cornstarch — This is optional, but it adds more to the chewy texture
  • Baking soda + baking powder — Using both makes these cookies light and fluffy
  • Salt — A little bit of salt adds a complexity of flavors
  • Dairy-free chocolate chips — Dark chocolate chips add flavor, texture, and sweetness
  • Dried blueberries — These can usually be found at grocery stores or even Costco.

How to Make Blueberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s an easy process to make these vegan blueberry chocolate chip cookies! Here’s a synopsis of the directions:

  1. Cream Butter and Sugar: Combine the vegan butter and sugars in a mixing bowl and mix on medium to medium-high speed until light and fluffy.
  2. Add Flax Egg: Next, you’ll add the flax egg. Mix on medium speed until everything is well combined. Then set this aside.
  3. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cornstarch, and salt. Sift this all together until well combined.
  4. Make the Batter: Pour the flour mixture in with the butter mixture and mix on low speed until combined.
  5. Add the Fun Stuff: Add the chocolate chips and dried blueberries and give it another stir until they’re evenly distributed throughout the dough.

Wondering whether to chill or not to chill the dough? Chilling is not necessary, but you have that option if you need it. So, if you make the dough and need some time before baking, simply cover the bowl so the dough doesn’t dry out. The batter can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.

Marly’s Tips

Baking Cookies

Drop the cookie dough by rounded tablespoonful onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Be sure to allow at least two inches between each cookie dough ball. Bake for 9 minutes or until the cookies get a golden color around the edges.

I prefer baking these cookies for 9 minutes because they will continue cooking on the pan after you remove them from the oven. So, they’ll be a bit soft at first, but they will firm up as they sit.

When the cookies are done, remove the pan from the oven and allow them to cool for a couple of minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

Repeat this process until all the cookies are done.

Storage Tips

Store cookies in an airtight container. They will keep at room temperature for up to 4 days. In the fridge they will keep 5–7 days. You can freeze them in a freezer bag or freezer-safe container for up to 2 months. To thaw, leave the cookies at room temperature.

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

  • Pour the flour mixture in with the butter mixture and mix on low to combine. Add the chocolate chips and dried blueberries and stir until they’re evenly distributed throughout the dough. This dough can dry out quickly so be sure to cover it. Be prepared to add a tablespoon or so of water if it dries out.
  • Drop by rounded tablespoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet, allowing at least two inches between each. Bake for 9 minutes or until the cookies get a golden color around the edges.

Notes

I find baking the cookies for 9 minutes works best because when you leave them on the pan, they will continue cooking. That means they’re quite soft coming out of the oven, but firm up as they cool off.
