Servings 12 cookies


  • 1/2 Cup Plant-Based Butter
  • 1/3 Cup White Sugar
  • 2/3 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 3/4 Cup Gluten-Free Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 Cup Vegan chocolate chips or carob chips
  • 1/2 Cup Marshmallows
  • 1/2 Cup Salty Pretzels


  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.
  • Using a stand mixer (or a hand mixer with a large bowl), cream softened plant-based butter, white sugar, and packed brown sugar for 3-4 minutes on medium speed, or until soft, smooth, creamy, and evenly incorporated.
  • Add applesauce and vanilla extract.
  • Turn the mixer back on to medium speed and cream together another minute.
  • Gently stir dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking soda) into wet ingredients. Followed by slowly mixing on low speed until just combined. ( I added this step because it's the only way I know how to stop flour from going everywhere)!
  • Stir in carob chips, marshmallows, and pretzels. Using a small or large ice cream scoop (or tablespoon), scoop cookie dough onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
  • Don't overcrowd cookie sheet as cookies will spread. Place cookies a couple of inches apart, 6 cookies per baking sheet.
  • Bake for 17 minutes, or until the desired crispness. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack.


  1. As all oven temperatures vary, I suggest checking your cookies at the 10-minute mark.
  2. If you'd like a flatter cookie slam your baking sheet onto a flat surface towards the end of the baking process. 
  3. Feel free to add more or less of the added ingredients as you'd like. This is a great recipe to get the kids to help with.
