I originally found this recipe on Compassion Over Killing's website a few years ago. It looks like the link isn't available anymore but head on over to their newly revamped site for more info on choosing compassion when it comes to your food.
Make a batch of the best chewy chocolate chip cookies ever and take a break to enjoy a yummy gooey treat. And they happen to be vegan! They have gotten two thumbs up from vegans and meat / dairy / egg eaters alike. All the ingredients can be easily found in your pantry and in the grocery store. The steps for making these are straight forward: beat, add some more ingredients, beat some more, stir in chocolate chips, bake, and eat! Make them mini or gigantic, chewy or crunchy, (I'm a chewy cookie kind of girl)-- either way they go best with a glass of soy or almond milk. Enjoy!
PS: I also like to make a batch, bake half, and freeze the remaining dough so fresh cookies can be made at any time in the near future.
PPS: They are also amazing with some soy ice cream sandwiched in between-- YUM.
The Best Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever
- 1/4 cup soy milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla or vanilla paste
- 12 oz dairy-free chocolate chips (Trader Joe’s has semi-sweet chocolate chips that don’t contain milk)
In a medium bowl place the creamy ingredients:
- 1 cup of softened soy margarine (I used CANOLEO Soft Margarine– no hydrogenated oils, no trans fatty acids)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
In another medium bowl place the dry ingredients:
- 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda (NOT baking powder)
With a hand mixer, blend together the soy margarine and sugars. Once blended, add the soy milk and vanilla. Mix well; the mixture should be a creamy consistency.
Add the dry ingredients to the creamy ingredients, mix with a hand mixer or a wooden spoon. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Drop spoonfuls of dough onto a greased or parchment paper lined baking sheet. (I like to use a tablespoon to scoop up the dough and make them consistent in size.) Bake at 350F for about 8-10 minutes or until edges are brown. If you like chewy cookies, take them out of the oven right as the edges turn light brown.
