In my past life I was obsessed with baking, went to culinary school and even worked professionally in the industry for a few years! Although much has changed since then (professionally and health-wise), it’s of no surprise that when the holidays come around, I’m more than happy to put my apron back on and play around in the kitchen… you know, when eating baked goods is particularly encouraged/acceptable this time of year.
So thanks to a cookie exchange invite, I’ve been inspired to veganize a few of my past-favorite recipes! First up is a classic one of course… The Chocolate Chip Cookie! This cookie is interesting to me because there are SOOO many versions of it, practically with all of them using the same ingredients, however it can yield vastly different results. Personally I love mine soft and chewy in the middle, but also w a slight crisp. So if that’s your preference too, I have a feeling you’ll enjoy this one.
I first attempted to veganize this recipe over the weekend and my fiancé absolutely LOVED them! He tasted them live on my instastory and said they were the best vegan cookies he’s ever had! Pleasing his tastebuds is no small feat! So I’m only posting this now out of peer pressure from those who viewed his reaction! To be honest, I have A LOT of plans to continue changing this recipe to one that is much healthier and wholesome, but until then… enjoy!
