I’ve been looking for a good vegan cookie recipe for ages. Chocolate Chip Cookies are such a simple, wonderful treat which one could expect to be foolproof to make.
Well – wrong expectations, I had. Ever since I started eating mostly vegan, I tried a LOT of chocolate chip cookie recipes which all turned out to be not so nice. Rock-hard cookies, crispy but not chewy ones, chewy but not crispy ones, … not satisfying. Until finally, I found this recipe here by chance. It’s a recipe for double chocolate chip cookies with cocoa-dough and chocolate chips. As I prefer vanilla-scented dough with chocolate chunks, I changed the recipe slightly – and those cookies turned out to be perfect (at least for my taste). Slightly crispy at the edges, chewy in the middle, a sweet hint of vanilla and big chunks of bittersweet chocolate.
If that’s your idea of a perfect cookie as well, you should try baking these. They’re super quick to make and really satisfying when you’re craving something sweet to accompany your coffee 🙂
