  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax seed + 3 tbsp warm water)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 13 teaspoons red food color *see note
  • 1 1/2 cups (180g) gluten-free 1:1 baking blend
  • 2 tablespoons (15g) unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup (160g) vegan dark chocolate chips

Red Velvet Cookies

  1. Prepare the flax egg by combining the ground flax seed and warm water. Set aside for 5 minutes to gel.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and prepare two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the softened butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar and mix until smooth.
  4. Add in the flax egg, vanilla extract, and red food color and mix until fully combined.
  5. Add in the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt and mix until a dough forms.
  6. Gently fold in the dark chocolate chips and white chocolate chips until just combined.
  7. With a large 3-tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the dough on the prepared cookie sheets and bake for approximately 10-12 minutes or until the edges are just set and the center appears underbaked.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to fully cool on the cookie sheet. Enjoy!
  9. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days or frozen for up to 6 months.


Depending on the type of red food color, the cookies will need 1-3 teaspoons. Start with 1 teaspoon, mix, and depending on the color you desire, add more as needed one teaspoon at a time.
