 Vegan Milk Bar Cookies Recipe

Inspired by the infamous Momofuku Milk Bar cookies, I recreated a vegan version that is closest to the original recipe! I have seen so many different attempts at these milk bar cookies and some recipes either nail it or have revised a few ingredients before perfecting these ooey-gooey, irresistible cookies. Well lucky for you, I have found the perfect recipe that will not disappoint! Grab your cooking gloves because we are about to make the best cookies you’ve ever had.

Alternative ways to make this recipe:

Instead of using cornflakes, you can use pretzels, caramel pieces, or any of your favorite cereal brands to add that yummy, crispy texture. Oatmeal is also a great choice if you want a healthier alternative.

  3. Add aquafaba and vanilla and beat for 8 minutes on high, scraping down sides of thebowlas necessary.

  5. Add cornflakes and chocolate chips, and mix on low until just mixed, about 30-45 seconds.

  9. Freeze for a minimum of 1 hour.
  10. Preheat oven to 350F.
  11. Bake cookie dough for 18 minutes., rotating the cookie sheet halfway through.
  12. The cookies are ready when the edges are browned on edges and golden in the center.
  13. Let the cookies cool completely on the cookie sheet.
* NOTE: The original recipe says to use a large 2¾-ounce scoop (or ⅓ cup) measure., which I did, but I also used a regular cookie scoop for smaller more manageable cookies. *

Do not bake the cookie dough from room temperature or they will spread out and you will have one giant cookie.
