Vegan Levain Style OREO Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If there is one food trend I’m forever all about, it’s Levain style cookies! If you’re not familiar with Levain, its a widely loved NYC bakeshop that features all the baked staples. It’s so good you’ll see it on tv left and right and everyone raves about this shop. So how did their cookie become so iconic? 

 

I’ll tell you!

 

Everyone loves a classic chocolate chip cookie, but this approach is just next level. It features cake flour, which adds a lightness, lots of butter (needed), more brown sugar than white for more of a softer cookie texture, and the one strategy I love most is that they make the height of the cookie sky high. By adding height the inside cooks slower making it more of a doughy center. Last but not least, the temperature is key as its higher than traditional cookies at 410 degrees, giving you a crisp outer edge and just a slightly soft center. 

 

The combination of all these variables truly delivers a fab cookie that will make you say, wow, I’m never going back to traditional cookies! When thinking of the next best variation of this cookie, I knew we had to do a classic Mint OREO Chocolate Chip Cookie! There are many flavor that come and go, but chocolate and mint with a little bit of cookies is a staple. While we’ve done about 10 different Levain Style cookies here, this one was a must!

 

 

 

It’s my go to cookie base, with notes of mint,

What’s fab about my vegan version? Everything! It’s modeled after the most sought after Levain replica recipe, features just flax eggs, can all be made in 1 bowl, you don’t have to sift in the dry ingredients, you can even add them all at the same time. it uses vegan butter and stevia sweetened chocolate chips, mirrors the real deal, compromises nowhere with texture or flavor, requires no chill time (thank goodness), it’s crispy on the outside and a little soft on the inside, packs just the right amount of peppermint flavor, tons of chocolate cookies, a gorgeous color and just so good!

Vegan Levain Style OREO Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Instructions

 

  1. In a small bowl combine the ground flax and water. Set aside to thicken. This will serve as the eggs in the cookie
  2. Preheat oven to 410 degrees.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together cold cubed vegan butter, brown sugar, and white sugar for 2-4 minutes or fluffy. If you over mix it will be runny. Pro tip: don’t take out the butter until you need it so it will be very cold.
  4. Add flax egg mixture and extracts, and mix well on low (1-2 mins)
  5. Now add your gel food coloring and mix on low. I recommend a little a time until you achieve the right shade
  6. (You can add all the dry ingredients to the bowl all at once, but I prefer this way) In a large bowl combine all of the dry ingredients.
  7. Gradually add in the dry ingredients to the butter mixture in increments (flours, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt) mixing after each time just a little until combined. Avoid over mixing. Stir in chocolate chips and chopped chocolate cookies.
  8. Separate dough into large roughly shaped balls and place on lightly colored cookie sheet. Don’t make the dough too smooth, you want the dough roughly formed and tall. You will fit 4 cookies on one large cookie sheet. The dough makes 6-8 extra large cookies.
  9. Bake for 9 minutes or until golden brown on the top. Let them rest for at least 10 minutes to set.

 

Notes

  •  If you over mix your batter, they will be flat
  • If your butter melts, they will spread more
  • If you don’t stack the dough high enough, they will be flat (makes 8 cookies)
  • If you over bake them, they will be flatter
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 9 mins

  1. Thanks for the recipe! I have made the mint Oreo cookies and it was divine! Only issue is that it didn’t have that chunkiness, but a bit flatter. I used really cold butter but when I added flax meal it became liquidy a bit? How do you avoid the flax to cause that?
