Must Haves

Before you try out these great recipes, make sure you have these items handy to make things easier.

Tips to Remember to make Cookie Recipes without Butter

  • Soften the vegan margarine/ vegan butter at room temperature.
  •  If the recipe calls for it, melted coconut oil is the right way to use coconut oil.
  • Drinking chocolate powder (usually call hot chocolate powder) can be used in place of unsweetened cocoa powder, BUT, drinking chocolate powder has added sugar in it so be mindful of any more sugar you add to make the cookie dough.
  • Preheat the oven before beginning your prep. If you prepare the batter and then wait for the oven to heat up, sometimes the batter can dry out a little bit.
