Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Vegan Blueberry Cookies. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

This recipe uses frozen blueberries but you can easily swap for fresh if you have them on hand. Although, frozen will be more cost efficient!

To keep this recipe plant based, used a vegan butter. I love Plant cream from Country Crock. In my opinion it resembles regular butter the best in baking.

You can use cane sugar or coconut sugar for this recipe. Although I love to use coconut sugar in most of my baking, it will likely change the color of the cookies if used in this one.

Vanilla extract is a great addition for any baked good.

This recipe uses all purpose flour, but you can easily swap for gluten free flour blend if desired to make this recipe gluten free. I prefer King Arthurs over Bob’s Red Mill, but both will work!

Baking soda and baking powder will help these cookies rise during baking to have a nice and fluffy texture.

Salt helps to balance out all the flavors.

I prefer to use mini chocolate chips so that you have a piece of chocolate in each bite, but you can use your favorite dairy free or regular chocolate if desired.

Tips And Tricks

Use frozen blueberries for best results, these tend to create more juice and a better color in my opinion, although fresh will work too.

An electric mixer is best for this recipe to really incorporate the butter into the blueberries.

Refrigerate dough for a minimum of 30 minutes to ensure the cookies don’t spread too much during baking time.

Feel free to use white, regular or dark chocolate chips!

Store cookies in an airtight container on the counter and enjoy up to 4-5 days. Cookies can also be frozen in an airtight container. Allow to thaw on the counter to bring to room temperature.

Taste And Texture

These cookies taste like your standard chocolate chip cookie but with blueberry flavoring. They are light, fluffy and airy but crispy on the edges.
