Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Perfectly chewy vegan chocolate chip cookies – you would never know these bad boys are vegan! These really remind me of the Millies Cookies we used to love in our pre-vegan days, the perfect combination of crunchy outsides and a really soft chewy middle.

We first had these at a friends house, we couldn’t believe such delicious authentic tasting cookies were vegan, and after clearing out the entire plate she put out as soon as I got home I emailed her to ask for the recipe! We made so many batches of these over christmas, and even non-vegan family members went crazy for them.

We often also add the zest and a squeeze of juice from an orange to make vegan chocolate orange cookies. They are amazing!
