Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 10 Min

Total Time: 20 Min

Yields 12-14 Cookies


  • 1 ¼ Cup All-Purpose Flour
  • ½ Cup Cacao Powder
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ Tsp Salt
  • ⅓ Cup Vegan Butter, melted
  • 1 Cup Caster Sugar
  • ⅓ Cup Almond Milk, or non-dairy milk of choice
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar


  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and line a baking tray or two with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, add your flour, cacao powder, baking powder, and salt. Whisk until evenly combined. In a separate large bowl, add your melted vegan butter and sugar. Mix together until combined. Add your almond milk and vanilla extract and mix again until combined.
  3. Add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients and using a rubber spatula, fold it in until combined. Be sure not to over mix. Add your powdered sugar to a small bowl, and using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, scoop out a heaping scoop of your cookie dough and roll it into a ball. Roll it around in the powdered sugar until fully coated and transfer to your baking tray. Repeat with the rest of your cookie dough.
  4. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool for 8-10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. Enjoy with a glass of your favourite non-dairy milk!
