Vegan white chocolate raspberry cookies
I am slightly obsessed with raspberries at the moment. The juicy texture paired with the tart flavour is so delicious, especially in the summer! They’re just super refreshing. Saying that, my all time favourite summer treat is raspberry ripple ice-cream! These cookies have a hint of ‘raspberry ripple’.
The cookies sooo damn good, and the best part is how easy they are to make! They can be made in one bowl, and the cookie dough is whipped up in minutes!! The cookie dough is thick and chewy, when baked turns into the BEST EVER bakery style cookies you’ll ever imagine with melty white chocolate and tangy raspberry. Rich, flavourful and the DELICIOUS!

Ingredients you’ll need
You only need a few ingredients to make the BEST EVER Vegan white chocolate raspberry cookies, which are crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside with tangy raspberries and melty white chocolate. Honestly this flavour combination is one of my all time favourites, you’ll love them! Find the full method and ingredients list on the recipe card at he bottom of the page.
- Dairy-free butter : Make sure to use dairy-free block butter, as margarine will be too soft and will make the cookies spread too much when baked.
- Vanilla : Use vanilla extract or seeds from a vanilla pod for added flavour.
- Plain flour : Make sure to use plain / all purpose flour, not self raising.
- Baking soda : Helps with the chewy texture.
- Dairy-free milk : You can use any dairy-free milk for this recipe for example – soya, almond, oat or cashew.
- Sugar : Be sure to use a fine white caster sugar. Don’t use granulated or the cookies will be gritty. Light brown or dark sugar will be too rich and can caramelise the cookie.
- Dairy-free white chocolate: Use your favourite vegan friendly white chocolate.
- Raspberries: Fresh is best, but you can also use frozen or freeze dried. If using freeze dried, the raspberries can be added into the batter when you add in the white chocolate chips / chunks.
White chocolate raspberry cookie FAQ
Why did my cookies turn green / grey?
- After we add raspberries to cookie dough, there is a chemical reaction of the baking soda and raspberry juice which turns the colour of the dough from a pretty pink colour to a grey / green tone. In order to prevent this, mix the cookie dough with the white chocolate then before baking, press some raspberries into the dough. This will prevent any chemical reaction!
Can this recipe be made gluten-free?
- Unfortunately this recipe can’t be made gluten-free. They have been recipe developed using wheat / gluten based flour. Make sure to check out my popular Gluten-free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies though!
How to store the cookies?
- Make sure the cookies are stored in an air tight / sealed container either in the fridge or at room temperature. If stored in the fridge, allow them to come to room temperature before serving. Best eaten within 2-3 days of making.
Why did my cookies spread too much?
- The cookies may spread too much if you use soft margarine. It’s always best to use a dairy-free vegan block butter for these bakery style cookies. My favourite is Naturli Vegan Block or Flora Plant Butter. Another tip to minimise spreading is to chill the cookie dough balls for approximately 20 minutes before baking.
What dairy-free white chocolate to use?
- Make sure to use a dairy-free white chocolate. My favourites are supermarket own branded free-from white chocolate, or iChoc Vanilla. Always make sure to check your ingredients are vegan / dairy-free before use.
Can I make these cookies using other berries?
- You sure can. These cookies are delicious with fresh blackberries or blueberries! Experiment with your favourite berries and let me know what you think to them in the comments.
White chocolate raspberry cookies tips and tricks:
Make sure to properly weigh out the ingredients:
- I always recommended you use a set of kitchen scales to precisely weigh you ingredients. Using gram measurements makes for a precise bake each time, unlike using cup measurements.
Use an ice-cream scoop for perfect cookies:
- In order to get perfectly symmetrical cookies, use an ice-cream scoop to scoop the dough into balls and place on the baking tray. I like to weigh out the dough to make sure it’s approximately 40g per ball of dough.
Use a cookie cutter to get round cookies:
- There is a super simple trick to get perfectly round cookies each and every time. Once the cookies have baked, remove them from the oven, place a round cookie cutter (slightly larger then the cookie) and scoot them around, they will form a perfect circle shape – watch my video tutorial here for example.
Storing the cookies
- Make sure to store the cookies in an air tight / sealed container. They can be left at room temperature for 1-2, but will soften or can be stored in the fridge for up to 2-3 days. The moisture from the raspberry will make the cookies soggy if left too long.
