Chocolate Chip Cookies Made with Pantry Staples
This crinkle chocolate chip cookies recipe is a fantastic pantry-staple treat! It uses almost all ingredients you would have in your dry pantry or cupboards. You probably already have a lot of these ingredients on hand already. Keeping a well-stocked pantry makes it easy to come up with delicious and healthy meals using a few staples you can rotate. I made a list of my Top 125 Plant-Based Pantry Staples that always keep on hand. And you can check out all my favorite pantry staple recipes on TheHerbeevore.com here. By stocking up on healthy whole ingredients you can cook delicious recipes without a trip to the bakery
What’s In These Chocolate Chip Cookies with Butter?
- All Purpose Flour: I normally use King Arthur organic all purpose flour for all my baking recipes, I love the consistency and texture of the crumb this flour produces. If you are gluten free, then a gluten free flour would be a nice substitute in this dish.
- Granulated & Brown Sugar: I like this organic sugar for my recipes, it has a really nice texture in these cookies, I’d recommend Anthony’s organic sugar for baking.
- Plant-Based Butter
- Vanilla Extract: it’s super important to use real pure vanilla extract, and not artificial baking vanilla flavor. This real all natural vanilla is a fantastic ingredient to give these cookies an #extra boost.
- Baking Soda: I love keep baking soda in the pantry for baking, and also for cleaning. This baking soda works great for both.
- Eggs: If you don’t have fresh eggs, we swear by these powdered dried eggs which last in the pantry for months! Great for when you want a little extra protein without a trip to the store, and they work amazing in baked goods too.
- Chocolate Chips, you can use semi-sweet or milk chocolate, or these great dairy free nut free chocolate chips.
- Pinch of Salt
How Do I Make Cookies Dairy Free?
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line 3 baking sheets with tin foil and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, add the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla extract, and water. With a wooden spoon stir and mix well for a few minutes to combine.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt to the bowl, and stir for another few minutes until the dough is well incorporated. Add the chocolate chips and mix well to combine.
Measure out 1/3 cup of dough for each cookie, and place 3 or 4 balls of dough on each baking sheet. Place baking sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes before baking (don’t skip this step), then move to the oven. When one pan is in the oven, put the next pan in the freezer.
Bake cookies for 10 minutes. With an oven safe glove, grab the sheet pan and lift the pan a few inches over the oven rack, and let the cookie pan drop onto the baking rack. This will allow the cookies so spread out and crinkle at the edges. Repeat this 3 or 4 more times, baking the cookies for a total of 16-18 minutes.Place finished cookies on a wire rack to cool and do not move until they have cooled completely.
Dietary Modifications for these Easy Pantry Desserts
- 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 egg with a flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 1 tablespoon water, mixed together), and using these vegan chocolate chips.

This looks delicious! One question: the directions say “Measure out 1/3 of dough” and I know these are enormous cookies, but is that supposed to be 1/3 cup of dough?
Thank you! Just fixed it, and yes you are absolutely correct, 1/3 cup of dough for each cookie. This recipe makes about 12 cookies total. Let me know how these turn out 🙂
I have to share that when I saw these cookies (without description)on your pinterest banner I was worried all the chips were BEES! I had to follow the link and am relieved to see they are chips after all.
I haven’t made anything yet but had to compliment you on a lovely site and looks like fantastic recipes. Two suggestions, I master recipe picture panel and a different page number link. I’m only able to click on “2” and it would be nice to be able to return to page 4 or ? easily.
Keep of the good work! Do you sell any of your honey?
No bees were harmed in the making of these cookies haha…. Or in any of these recipes 🙂 !
And thank you so much for the feedback Barbara, I will definitely add a master image page, fantastic idea. Also will try to work on my pagination too. Let me know if you try any recipes and how they turn out 😊
