Easy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are such a classic ... But how to make them vegan? Turns out it's much easier than you might think!

You won't even need any fancy ingredients, just the classic baking superstars like flour, sugar, (vegan) butter, baking soda and a couple of extras. This is the perfect recipe for any baking beginners - those that might be afraid to try out something too complicated, but still want something that is packed with flavour and looks good regardless of their skill level.

You can even play around with the flavour yourself and add some extras – I tried coconut shreds and lemon/orange and they both worked incredibly well.

Enjoyyy!

These are best eaten fresh (when they’re still warm but crunchy at the same time). I definitely recommend eating them within 1 or 2 days, but I usually just eat them all in a day. :)

*Note that not all sugar is vegan – you might know this already, but it’s an easy mistake to make and I certainly had no idea when I first switched to veganism.  Why? Bone char is often used by the sugar industry as a way of decolorizing – making sure the end product has the desired bright white tones.
