Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

On my travels around the internet this week, I found a great recipe for chocolate chip cookies that is vegan and allergy friendly. When I was in elementary school, I would always look enviously at other kid's lunches as they had all kinds of baked goodies and treats I thought I would never be able to eat. I've never made a true, classic chocolate chip cookie because it's been tough to tweak original egg filled recipes. I was so happy to stumble on this I had to go home and make them right away. For this recipe, you'll need:

  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup margarine (or butter if you're not following a vegan/non dairy diet)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup rice milk or soy milk
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

 

1. In a large bowl, beat together the margarine, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and rice milk.

The verdict:

Yum! The cookies were moist without being too dense and chocolatey without being overpowering. This is a recipe I will definitely be keeping in my baking arsenal; so easy and so delicious.
