Vegan Recipe | The Perfect Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie

by Molly Patrick on January 16, 2014

Chocolate Chip Cookies I’m currently on a sugar bender that I am about to get off from.

Last week, I wrote about Vanilla Cinnamon Coffee Cake and now we have chocolate chip cookies. I thought I would give you the sweet and naughty stuff before I go back to healthy good for you recipes (yes, even vegan chocolate chip cookies are bad for you. Bummer, I know).

Enjoy – because next week it’s nothin’ but quinoa and veggies, baby.

    Hi! I was just wondering how much brown sugar to use. The ingredients only say 3/4 cup sugar, but the directions include brown sugar. I’m excited to try some delicious vegan cookies. The ones I’ve had so far have only been subpar.

    Hi Aurora –
    aghhhh!!! This is totally my mistake!
    It is 3/4 cup sugar in total (regular sugar, no dark sugar)
    I will make sure this gets clarified.

    Let us know how they turn out!
