When a chocolate craving strikes, you’ll want to whip up these dairy free chocolate cookies!  Packed with dairy free white chocolate chips, these are perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth.  Plus, they’re quick and easy to make!

How to make these cookies

This is a very simple recipe, just like most drop cookies!  You’ll find full the full recipe card at the bottom of the post, but here’s a quick overview of what you’ll need:

  • Dairy free butter (I used Country Crock plant butter sticks made with avocado oil; Earth Balance also works!)
  • Sugar
  • Brown Sugar
  • Egg
  • Vanilla
  • All-purpose flour
  • Cocoa powder (plain and unsweetened)
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Dairy free white chocolate chips (see recommendations in next section)

Once you’ve gathered up your ingredients, you’ll cream together the dairy free butter with your sugar and brown sugar.  Then you’ll mix in your egg and vanilla.  After that, stir in your dry ingredients then fold in your white chocolate chips.  The dough will look like this:

From there, drop a heaping tablespoon of dough onto a baking sheet.  I just use a regular ‘ol tablespoon with a heaping scoop, but if you have a cookie scoop that size you can do that too.

Now just bake ‘em up, let cool, and then dig into chocolatey deliciousness!

There are a handful of dairy free white chocolate chip brands on the market right now:

  1. Walmart’s Great Value “Free From” White Baking Chips (pictured above): These are my favorite and what I used for this dairy free chocolate cookie recipe. They are one of the only dairy free white chocolate chips that I feel like tastes very comparable to regular white chocolate.  They’re also the most inexpensive option I’ve seen.
  2. Pascha Vegan Organic White Baking Chips: I have not tried these yet, but most people seem to rate them pretty highly. They are a bit on the pricey side, but you can cut down on the cost if you order a case up front on their website.
  3. Nestle’s Allergen Free White Morsels: These have been around for a couple of years now, with hit or miss reviews. Some people say that the taste is more like dark chocolate, while others have said it works well as a sweet chip in cookies.  These are carried at many Walmart stores, but I’ve found it quite difficult to find any in stock at least in my area, and haven’t seen them carried online.
  4. King David’s Vegan White Chocolate Chips: I’ve used these in the past and like them, but prefer the Walmart brand now. These are very sweet, which may be good or bad depending on your taste preferences!  You can find these on Amazon.
  5. DeeBest Vegan White Chocolate Chips: These are available on Amazon and most people report them being pleasant tasting. Keep in mind these are more of a mini chip than a standard full size chip, though.

Allergens in this recipe

Disclaimer:  Always double check ingredients and labels yourself for allergens prior to making a recipe.  While I try to check all ingredients for allergens, there’s always the chance I may miss something or manufacturer formulations can change.

As written, this recipe is dairy free.

Depending on the dairy free butter and dairy free chocolate chips you use, this recipe may contain nuts or soy.  However, by shopping for the right ingredients, you can find options that do not include either. For example, you could use the soy-free Earth Balance (red container) and the Walmart free-from white baking chips, and this should be both soy and nut free.  Of course, always double check ingredients labels.

This recipe does contain wheat/gluten and eggs.  

If you need to make this egg free, you should be able to do so using a flax egg.  If you need to make this gluten free, you could try using a gluten free 1:1 all purpose blend.  Please note, I haven’t tried either of these substitutions, so I cannot verify they will definitely work – but generally these are suitable substitutions in cookie recipes.
