There are two types of people in this world. People who love chewy chocolate chip cookies, and people who *think* crispy chocolate chip cookies are the way to go…

Don’t get me wrong, there are some cookies like these orange cardamom cookies and these “Nutella” stuffed peanut butter cookies that I love that crispy bite. But when it comes to chocolate chip…I’m ALLL about the chewy!

These vegan spiced chocolate chunk cookies are soft and chewy to perfection. They still have that fresh-baked chewiness to them even days after being baked. Seriously. You can’t make this stuff up people! 

I wanted to make a batch of cookies that had a little extra something to make them that perfect fall treat. So these cookies are made with warming spices like cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg to make them extra special and have that perfect fall-eque quality to them.

In fact, you should probably eat these cookies while being bundled up with a big blanket and a cup of tea while you’re at it.

A few notes on this recipe: 

Let’s start by talking flour. I used white spelt flour for this recipe but you can use regular flour, gluten-free flour blend instead, or almond flour if you’d like to make these grain-free. 

I make these vegan spiced chocolate chunk cookies in an electric mixer and I haven’t tried making them in a bowl. If you are making these in a bowl just mix our wet ingredients together, and your dry ingredients together in a separate bowl then mix together until well combined. 

Mix-ins. Obviously these cookies have some delicious chocolate chunks mixed into them, but you can also mix in any nuts or dried fruits you like in addition to the chocolate! 

These cookies will spread a bit on a baking sheet, but won’t spread out completely flat, so if you want a flatter cookie make sure to press them down a bit before you bake them.
