These vegan chocolate chip cookies are soft and chewy with just enough ‘crunch’ to be satisfying as you bite into them.
Jaye has officially declared these his favorite! Which is very high praise, considering the fabulous desserts we make on the regular.
But these were polished off at speed I tell you – I barely got a look in!
No wonder people eat cookie dough as is, I mean look how awesome this cookie dough looks!
But I managed to resist eating it so that this batch of cookies could get made!
I used chocolate chunks in these cookies (regular slabs of vegan chocolate chopped into chunks). It works just as well as vegan chocolate chips, if you struggle to get hold of them, or if they’re quite pricey. Of course you don’t have quite the symmetry of perfect little chocolate chips but whatevs.
What I actually did here was use chocolate chunks for the cookie dough, but when the cookies came out of the oven all warm and soft, I took a few chocolate chips (the perfectly symmetrical ones) and pushed a few of those into the tops of the cookies. So we have a mix of chocolate chunks with a few chocolate chips, I thought that was pretty much perfect here!
This batch makes 15-16 large cookies.
Going large comes naturally to me, I actually have to make extra effort to make things small, so it usually doesn’t happen.
These are soooo easy to make! And serve them up with some delicious non-dairy milk for a milk and cookies treat.
Served warm they are fantastic as the chocolate is all gooey and melty.
When you take them out the oven they’re still super soft and only very slightly browned on top. As they cool down they firm up.
What you’re looking for to let you know they’re done is they should be slightly browned on top and the edges should be set – not hard – just set, like they’re the shape they’re going to stay. They’ll still be very soft and gooey and not firm at all in the middle. That’s fine, as they cool the magic happens.
I found 15 minutes to be the right baking time for these, so that they’re still soft and chewy but have a bit of crunch too.
You’ll love how soft, chewy, slightly-crunchy, sweet and satisfying these chocolate chip cookies are. One of these cookies with a cup of tea or a glass of non-dairy milk makes a very satisfying afternoon snack.
Keep them in an airtight container at room temperature and they’ll stay fresh for up to a week.
