  • 1 cup vegan butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • zest of one orange
  • 2 tablespoons coffee-flavored liqueur
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 ¼ cup flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line two cookie sheets with silpat or parchment paper.
  • Combine butter and sugars in a mixing bowl and mix on medium to medium-high speed until light.
  • Add the orange zest, coffee flavored liqueur (sub with 1 tablespoon of vanilla if you prefer not to use alcohol), flax meal, cornstarch, water, and vinegar. Mix on medium speed until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir until well combined.
  • Pour the flour mixture in with the orange butter mixture and stir well. Add the chocolate chips and give it another stir.
  • Drop by rounded spoonful onto prepared cookie sheets, allowing at least two inches between them. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until the cookies get a nice, golden color to them.
  • Remove from the oven and allow them to cool for a minute before using a spatula to transfer them to a wire rack to cool.
  • Repeat until all the dough is used. Or, you can refrigerate this dough for a few days and spread the baking out. That way you have freshly-made cookies all week long!
