- In a separate large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring until everything is well combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. (You can use an electric mixer or stand mixer with paddle attachment if you like).
- Scoop the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches of space between each cookie. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
- Remove the cookies from the preheated oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

How to Make a Single Vegan Chocolate Chip Pistachio Cookie in the Air Fryer:
If you’re looking for a healthier alternative to traditional baking methods, consider using an air fryer to air fry these vegan chocolate chip pistachio cookies. An air fryer uses hot air to cook food, which means you can achieve the same crispy texture as deep frying without all the oil. Plus, the air fryer is much faster and more efficient than using an oven, so you can have a warm single or small batch, freshly baked cookie in just a few minutes.
To use an air fryer, simply follow the instructions for the recipe above, but shape the dough into a single cookie and place it in the air fryer basket instead of the oven. Cook the cookie for 6-8 minutes, or until it is golden brown and set. If you prefer a softer cookie, cook for a shorter amount of time. If you prefer a crispier cookie, cook for a longer amount of time.
Tips for Perfect Vegan Cookies Every Time:
- Use room temperature ingredients. This will help ensure that your cookies turn out soft and chewy, rather than dry and crumbly.
- Don’t overmix the dough. Once you’ve added the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stir just until everything is well combined. Overmixing the dough can lead to tough cookies.
- Use a cookie scoop. A cookie scoop helps ensure that your cookies are all the same size, which means they will bake evenly.
- Don’t forget the salt. A pinch of salt helps balance out the sweetness of the cookies and enhances the overall flavor.
- Experiment with different types of non-dairy milks for your favourite style of cookie.
