• 1 cup white, spelt, or oat flour)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, unrefined if desired
  • 3 tbsp regular sugar, unrefined if desired
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 3 tbsp butter (such as Melt vegan)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp milk of choice


  • Stir dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut in the butter (soft but not melted) and milk. If mixing by hand instead of with a stand mixer, it will seem dry. Keep stirring (don’t add more milk) and it will eventually turn into cookie dough. Smush into a big ball, then break off dough and roll smaller balls. For soft cookies, cover and chill in the fridge at least 1 hour (overnight is fine). Preheat oven to 350 F. Bake cookies on a parchment-lined sheet on the center rack for 15 minutes.
