Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies: Your New Favorite Cookie

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

You know that moment when you bite into your new favorite cookie?? Yup, it was like that when I first tasted these fresh out of the oven. Sure, all cookies taste better hot out of the oven, but the true test, 3 day old cookies, still giving you that little happy dance inside? Oh yes. This recipe is a keeper. Now for the real surprise: they're Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Have you ever had that moment as you’re getting ready to bake cookies and you’re all out of eggs, or butter, or something. That’s one of the awesome reasons to bake vegan cookies. No eggs? No problem!

As I’m writing this post, I sadly realized all these vegan chocolate chip cookies are already gone… I think I know what I’m doing tonight, because I want more cookies! Super fast to whip up, and utterly delicious, serve with a tall glass of almond or soy milk and you’ll win over the heart of vegan and carnivores alike.

Ok, ok, give the carnivore a glass of cow milk. Since they won't know any better that these are vegan anyway. Between the peanut butter, almonds, and dark chocolate chips, these cookies are packed, and I mean packed with flavor and texture. You won't miss the butter one little bit. 

Don’t worry about the kids either, they won't put their noses up to these “healthier” cookies, they won't even know what hit them. These babies are perfect for the lunch box, yours or theirs. Or as an after-school snack. Post dinner with coffee. You get the idea - I might be kind of obsessed. 

I think these might be pretty good with other nut butters too - almond butter comes to mind, or maybe even cashew butter. No matter what, you've got to give them a chance. I swear, vegan chocolate chip cookies could easily become your new favorite cookie.

    I made a similar recipe this summer for my dairy-free friends and OH MAN. The cookies were seriously the hit of the weekend! Who needs butter anyway?
