Who doesn't love chocolate chip cookies? Unfortunately for us, the majority of cookies on the market aren't vegan, and the vegan alternatives are often overly sweet, have a 'different' texture and are full of ingredients that we can't even pronounce!
We've been on a bit of a mission to fix this with a new recipe which you can quickly make at home, but that has a relatively straightforward list of ingredients. After lots of testing, these are our favourite chocolate chip cookies. They're moist and super moreish!
Our non-vegan friends and family love these as well, so we know we're onto a winner! Here's what you need.
75g light brown sugar
50g caster sugar
125g Trex (or other vegan butter)
2 large tablespoons applesauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
125g dark chocolate - melted
30g cocoa powder
150g plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 packet of vegan dark chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius.
In a microwave - or in a more traditional way - melt the dark chocolate in a heat-proof bowl and leave to cool.
Cream together the sugars and Trex in a mixing bowl.
Add the applesauce, vanilla extract and melted chocolate to the bowl.
Next, stir in the dry ingredients: plain flour, cocoa powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Combine the ingredients well, ensuring there are no dry patches.
Finally, add in the chocolate chips.
Using your hands, roll the cookie dough into balls and place onto a prepared baking tray. Pop in the oven for 10 - 14 minutes - there's an example photo below.
Remove from the oven and leave on a cooling rack - don't be alarmed if the cookies fall slightly, they'll still taste incredible!
