It’s NATIONAL COOKIE DAY and we’re going all out. These cookies are the perfect combination of salty and sweet; they’re loaded with three types of chocolate chips and topped with lots of flaky sea salt.

In this recipe, we’re updating our classic chewy chocolate chip cookies with THREE different types of chocolate plus a good helping of flaky sea salt (we use this kind). Oh, and there’s 1/4 cup of dough in each cookie.
For this recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- All-purpose flour
- Baking soda
- Cornstarch (this is the secret to making them extra chewy)
- Vegan butter (our favorite brand)
- Brown sugar and granulated sugar
- Non-dairy milk (we love oat milk)
- Pure vanilla extract
- Vegan chocolate chips, vegan mini chocolate chips, and vegan chocolate chunks
Tips and tricks
To make these sure these turn out perfect every time, here are a few of our best tips and tricks.
Measure your flour correctly
This is the most important part of this recipe. If you incorrectly measure flour while baking, then your baked goods can turn out dry and crumbly. If you over-measure the flour in this recipe, your cookies won’t spread properly and they won’t be as soft and chewy as they should. If you under-measure flour, then your cookies will flatten too much and will be oily.
To measure flour correctly, you should spoon the flour into your dry measuring cup, then scrape off the excess flour with the back of a knife. You can read more about this method in this blog post.
Use vegan butter spread or vegan butter sticks, softened
In baked goods, we often call for vegan butter and will often specify whether it should be in stick form or from the tub. This is because they have different ratios of oil and water that will lead to different textures in your baked goods. For this recipe, however, you can use either butter spread out of the tub or butter sticks. The butter should be soft enough to mix well with other ingredients – if using butter sticks, let it sit out for 30 minutes to an hour prior to use. If using butter spread that is soft right out of the fridge, then no need to soften. For this recipe, we typically use Earth Balance buttery spread.
Check your oven temperature
These bake at 350°F. If you notice they are not baking properly, your oven temperature may be off. You can check it with an oven thermometer.
Giant Salted Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 2 1/4 cups (281 g) all-purpose flour measured correctly*
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp (5 g) cornstarch
- 3/4 cup (169 g) vegan butter
- 1 cup (220 g) packed light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup (50 g) granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup (60 mL) non-dairy milk
- 2 tsp (10 mL) pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup (168 g) vegan chocolate chips plus extra for topping
- 1/4 cup (43 g) mini chocolate chips plus extra for topping
- 1/4 cup (35 g) chocolate chunks plus extra for topping
- Flaky sea salt for topping
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a small mixing bowl, whisk the flour, salt, baking soda, and cornstarch. Set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, add the butter, sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the milk and vanilla and beat again until creamy.
- Add about half of the flour mixture to the wet mixture and use a rubber scraper to combine. Add the rest and mix until combined.
- Fold in all the chocolate chips and chunks.
- Place large balls of dough (~1/4 cup [60 g] each) on your baking sheet. Top each with extra chocolate and a sprinkle of salt. Want them to be extra big? Double the amount of dough and add a few more minutes to the baking time
- Bake for 11-13 minutes, until they are baked to your liking. Sprinkle extra salt right when they come out of the oven.
I made these for my son’s birthday party and they were gone in the first 20 minutes! Although mine turned out more fluffy than flat, they were still delicious. Thank you so much!! 10/10 would recommend.♡

Can’t wait to make these for my sister!! I’m not vegan myself, but I am always trying to find good recipes and good sweets to make for my sister and her husband! I use to make her all kinds of sweets and foods but it’s become harder now because everything I use to make usually has quite a bit of butter, bacon, or cheese. This page has given me so many ideas on what I can cook for her when my deployment ends and I can return back to the states!!

Best vegan cookies I’ve ever made. Instead of the chocolate chips, I just used a mixture of vegan white and milk chocolate bars chopped up- worked amazingly!
Yay! That’s so great to hear. We are so happy you loved this recipe!! Thanks for the kind review.
Hi! I’m going to try these this week, do you think I could use coconut oil in place of the vegan buttery spread?
We haven’t tried this but we would recommend using firm coconut oil if you want to give it a shot!
Made these last night and they were delicious! The only thing is they didn’t spread out as much as I wanted them to. I tried to follow the recipe exactly. Any tips on what I can do to make them spread more next time?
Can’t wait to try them out my self. Thank you soooooooooooooooo much for the impact your having on our planet and of course the animals – your truly hardcore lifesavers 🙂 Greets from Germany
My cookies did not flatten in the oven. They stayed huge round balls. I measured everything correctly. I don’t have an oven thermometer but my oven is only 2 years old. Doubt it’s that off. Very sad at the moment.
