So if you didn’t know yet, I am DEFINITELY NOT a vegan, but I do find vegan/vegetarian foods fascinating. My boyfriend’s coworker had a vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe that apparently EVERYBODY raves about so he asked her for it. The following is the recipe I received from her. Think of a mix between a cake and a cookie… so basically they’re kind of like cake cookies. I didn’t have chocolate chips so I just chopped up baker’s squares of chocolate (well to be fair my boyfriend chopped up baker’s squares of chocolate). Anywho, they still tasted wonderful and I couldn’t help but immediately eat 3 of them because I’m the type of baker who does enjoy my own creations.
1 c Vegan Margarine (Earth Balance, etc. – I used Light Simple Balance)
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c white sugar
1/4 c non-dairy milk (vanilla soy milk – I used almond soy milk)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
12 oz dairy free chocolate chips (Ghiradelli semisweet “gold bag” – I used Kirkland brand and chopped up some baker’s chocolate squares because that’s all I had and I’m not vegan or vegetarian sooo… yeah)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Soften the butter
- Mix the softened butter with the brown sugar and white sugar
- Slowly mix in the soy milk and the vanilla and beat until smooth
- Add in the flour, baking soda, and salt
- Last, fold in the bag of chocolate chips
- Bake the cookies for 8 to 10 minutes
(or make a pizookie with ice cream)
(I know the picture is DEFINITELY NOT PRETTY, but it tasted sooooo goood!!)
Do you prefer cookies or pizookies?
Have you ever made a vegan or vegetarian baked good before?
