1–2 tbsp dairy-free milk, if needed for mixing batter
3/4 cup vegan chocolate chunks or chips
Preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk together the dry ingredients.In a separate large bowl, use a hand mixer to cream together the vegan butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Then add in the applesauce, and mix again until incorporated. Add in the flour mixture, and use a rubber spatula to gently fold the dry into the wet.
Fold in chocolate chips or chocolate chunks, and use a tablespoon or two of dairy-free milk here as needed to fold in the chips until they’re evenly distributed in the dough.
Scoop about 1 1/2 tbsp of dough and roll it into a ball. Place it onto the baking sheet and repeat for the remaining dough, spacing the cookies about 2 inches apart. Bake the cookies for 11-13 minutes, then remove from the oven.
Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
