Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies


I was so happy to find A Fresh Dille the other day. I love the blogsphere. There's never an end to inspiration or the likely-hood that you might bump into like-minded people. I love that the blog's focus not only on food, but fashion amongst other topics. What a lovely combo! I had been dreaming of chocolate chip cookies, and it happened to be my lucky day because I found just the perfect recipe as I perused the archives. The original recipe comes from Dreena Burton's Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies, and is just what I had been looking for. I love that this recipe only makes 12 cookies. There's less likely-hood to go off the deep end in a family of 4 with only 12 cookies. I have been out of maple syrup for a few weeks, so I had the mind to substitute brown rice syrup instead. They turned out beautifully. I love the tad of molasses. It adds just the right touch. I will try this recipe in its original form once I get the maple syrup, but I was happy the way they turned out with brown rice syrup.


Edit: I re-made these cookies exactly according to the recipe with the maple syrup this time. I have to tell you, these really were perfect. I liked them the last time, but I loved them this time so much more. And they're so easy. No creaming butter. Just mix with a spoon. So much less time consuming than non-veg cookies. You have to try these!

Ahh, thanks so much for the shout out lady! I love those cookies so much but have tried them with brown rice syrup and maple and definitely prefer the maple, so try those!

I adore your blog too!

Sarah, do try these. They were quite delicious. I don't think I've tried a vegan cookie because I've been afraid they'd be terrible. I'm glad to have found this recipe.

Morgan, I've been having a Little House of Veggies Cookathon. Just made your breakfast burritos today, and whoa!!! So awesome!!!

Claire, I actually went to Whole Foods today, and bought some maple syrup just for that very purpose! I wouldn't be able to rest without trying them the right way. My kids obsessively ask for whatever is in the cake plate, so I have to replenish :)

These look GREAT. I have a hard time getting vegan chocolate chip cookies to spread/flatten, but these look perfect.

One of my fave things about vegan cookies and brownies is that you can munch the uncooked dough/batter and not have to be worried about getting salmonella :)
I can't resist uncooked vegan cookie dough. YUM!

I agree :) Yet another benefit of vegan cooking!

This is great! Vegan cookies are my favorite but my kids want to add more chocolate chips in this cookies. Or they just add chocolate syrup.
