One of my favorite things to do after a long day of programming is to bake chocolate chip cookies.
They’re my go-to sweet snack so I always have the ingredients on hand for a sudden craving.
Luckily I stumbled upon this recipe for the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies from the NY Times. My thoughts? Make it into a vegan chocolate chip cookies recipe!
Below is the vegan version and they are 100% oozing with chocolate chip gooeyness. These chocolate chip cookies are SO flavorful and SO chewy, words cannot begin to describe how insanely tasty they are. This is the only vegan chocolate chip cookies recipe you will ever need!
I promise, one bite and they will melt in your mouth. Just try not to eat half a batch of dough before you bake them like I do 😉 Or maybe that’s your thing too!
They are literally that delicious. I’ve baked and eaten a lot of chocolate chip cookies in my life, homemade and bakery bought, and these get 5/5 stars – from me and all 5 of my taste-testers!
Save this recipe, it’s a keeper!!
