Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

To be totally honest with you, the reason I made these cookies was simply that I wanted comfort food! Since turning vegan I've been unable to simply pop down to the shops and grab a bag of fresh baked cookies from the bakery section, I have to put more effort into getting my sugar fix!

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies


So, last Saturday morning I woke up bright and early (cough.. 9am... cough, I wake up at 7am on weekdays, honest!) to set about making myself some cookies. I used the same recipe I always used to make cookies before I was vegan, just changing the butter to dairy free butter - I actually always used to use dark chocolate chips in my bakes because I prefer them to milk chocolate!


These cookies turned out wonderfully, being soft on the inside and chewy on the onside. Let me let you in on my top tip for cookie making, when you're adding the chocolate chips, keep about 1/4 of the amount of chocolate chips back rather than adding them. Use these remaining chocolate chips to sprinkle on top of the cookie dough pre-baking so that when they're baked, you can actually see chocolate chips on top and they aren't hidden by cookie dough. So, this top is really one for aesthetically pleasing cookies but trust me it really does make them look better!
