Placing a gluten-free chocolate cake mix cookie onto a stack of more cookies

Need cookies, like now? Introducing cookies that come together fast: 6-ingredient chocolate raspberry cookies made in 1 bowl in 30 minutes. The secret? Our chocolate cake mix!

Not only are these cookies so EASY to make, but they taste INCREDIBLE — decadent, chewy, perfectly sweet, and bursting with bright raspberries and melty chocolate chips. Plus, they’re vegan, gluten-free, and grain-free. Need we say more? Let’s get baking!

Frozen raspberries, vegan butter, chocolate chunks, chocolate cake mix, dairy-free milk, and vanilla

These EASY, chocolaty cookies begin with the wet ingredients: vegan butter, dairy-free milk, and vanilla extract. Melted vegan butter gives them chewy centers, crispy edges, and a neutral flavor (sorry coconut oil, you didn’t make the cut this time)!

Adding chocolate cake mix to the wet ingredients

Then it’s time for the mighty, one and only dry ingredient: our CHOCOLATE CAKE MIX! Yes, it’s that exciting. It’s vegan, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free but unbelievably good (don’t just take our word for it). Stir it in and you’ve got COOKIE DOUGH (yes, it’s wizardry!).

Using a spatula to mix together the wet and dry ingredients

Lastly, it’s time for the mix-ins: frozen raspberries, chocolate chips or chunks, and an optional pinch of sea salt. Not into fruit + chocolate? We forgive you. Grab your favorite cookie ingredients and let your creativity shine!

Adding frozen raspberries and chopped chocolate to the cookie batter

All that’s left is to scoop, bake, and it’s cookie time!

Does it keep? 3-4 Days

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (176 C) and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.

  • To a medium mixing bowl, add melted vegan butter, dairy-free milk, and vanilla extract and whisk well. Next, add Minimalist Baker Chocolate Cake Mix and use a rubber spatula to fully combine. Finally, fold in the frozen raspberries and chocolate chips, being careful not to break up the raspberries too much.
  • Use a cookie scoop (we like this one) to scoop out 1 ½ Tbsp-sized mounds. Place the cookie dough 2 inches apart on the baking sheets. Repeat until all cookies are scooped out.
  • Bake for 16-18 minutes until they’ve doubled in size and the edges appear dry. Optionally, sprinkle with sea salt. Let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy warm or cooled.

  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3-4 days. To freeze the dough, we recommend scooping out the cookies, placing them on the parchment-lined baking sheet, and freezing. Once frozen, you can remove them from the baking sheet and transfer to an airtight container. Bake the cookies straight from frozen — they may need an extra 1-2 minutes in the oven.

*Fresh raspberries are too moist for this recipe. They mostly melt into the cookie dough and become undetectable.
