Farmhouse Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe (Vegan, GF Options)

These farmhouse chocolate chip cookies are rustic, delicious, and have a surprising ingredient to give them flavor! A great dessert or snack anytime.
I’ll admit, I’m not much of a dessert baker. I have a few pretty good cookie recipes: my crinkle chocolate chip cookies are a winner, and my 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies are awesome for a quick dessert. And I’m adding these delicious farmhouse chocolate chip cookies to my baking resume!  They are so unbelievably delicious, and pretty simple to make… a yummy homemade dessert will be cooling on your counter in under 30 minutes!

These Farmhouse Chocolate Chip Cookies are:

  • Crunchy on the outside
  • Soft and chewy in the middle
  • Buttery
  • Sweet
  • Can be made Vegan or Gluten Free
  • Ready in under 30 minutes!

These are great cookies to make on a rainy or snowy day, and they made the house smell amazing!  One good thing about being in quarantine right now is that I have tons of time to bake and have the flexibility to create new and delicious recipes that I’ve never attempted before.  Once I mastered the 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies, I graduated to a slightly more advanced recipe, and these were perfect!

What’s In These Farmhouse Chocolate Chip Cookies?

  • Flour: you can easily substitute a 1:1 baking mix if you are gluten free!
  • Granulated & Brown Sugar
  • Butter, can be plant based
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Water
  • Baking Soda
  • Apple Cider Vinegar, which may surprise you but it gives the cookies a little extra tang which is really fantastic
  • Chocolate Chips, can be plant based
  • Pinch of Salt

These are cookies that everyone in the family will love – they are fun to make and use simple pantry staple ingredients.  We just stocked up on a lot of flour (50 lb bag!) so I anticipate making these cookies for the next few months while we are at home.  They are such a treat!  And since these are made with mostly pantry staple ingredients, you can whip up a batch anytime. These are great rainy day chocolate chip cookies to bake with kids, parents, cousinds, etc!

How Do I Make These Rustic Chocolate Chip Cookies?

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl mix together the flour, baking soda and the salt.
  • In a large bowl mix together the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, vinegar, and the egg.
  • Mix the flour mixture into the wet mixture until well combined, and add  the chocolate chips into the dough.
  • To the baking sheet, place about 2 tablespoons of dough for each cookie. Leave them about 3-4 inches apart on the baking sheet.
  • Place baking sheet in the oven, and bake for 9 to 10 minutes, the cookies will look a little crisp at the edges but soft in the middke.  Remove the baking sheet from the oven, and to allow the cookies on the sheet for 10 minutes before eating.  Enjoy!
These go great with a nice cold glass of milk!  Regular milk, almond milk, oat milk, whatever you prefer!  My homemade chocolate oat milk recipe couldn’t be easier, and compliments these cookies really well.

Dietary Modifications

  • These can be made Gluten Free by substituting the all purpose flour for a 1-to-1 gluten free baking mix!
  • These can be made Vegan by replacing the butter with a plant-based version or replacing the egg with a flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 1 tablespoon water, mixed together)
