Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

First of all, I’d like to say happy holidays to everyone! At this point, you’ve either gotten all your gifts weeks ago (like a responsible, smart adult lol) or you’re scrambling to get some last minute shopping done (like me). As a result, traffic becomes more of a hassle, people can become more unbearable, and you become Ebenezer Scrooge! Before you become this negatively-spirited Christmas icon, remember all the wonderful and magical things about the holidays…primarily all the yummy food and sweets!

In my case, I grew up celebrating Christmas and when I was little, my favorite part of this time of year was baking some chocolate chip cookies for Santa Clause the morning of Christmas Eve. Obviously, Santa had many stops to make and a plethora of cookies to eat, so we’d keep most of the cookies for us to enjoy and leave out just enough to satisfy his belly. Nowadays, the chunky old man munches on my decadent, vegan chocolate chip cookies and I bet you he can’t even tell the difference!

 

 

Ingredients:          36 COOKIES

 

 

Cookie dough 4 (1 of 1)

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl
  3. Mix coconut oil, sugar, and brown sugar in a separate bowl
  4. Add almond milk and vanilla to oil/sugar mixture
  5. Combine with dry ingredients and mix until looks and feels like cookie dough
  6. Add chocolate chips and mix until evenly spread throughout the dough
  7. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls, two inches apart onto a greased cookie sheet
  8. Bake for 10-11 minutes if you want soft, gooey cookies, or 12-13 minutes if you want crunchy edges
  9. Let cool for 5 minutes
  10. Enjoy with a glass of cold almond milk for best, traditional experience!

This simple, classic cookie is what I live for and have to be careful not to eat them all in one sitting! Make some today or tomorrow morning in time for Noche Buena, or for Christmas morning as the gift exchange commences. There is no happier moment for a kid (and let’s be honest, adults as well) than opening gifts while chowing down on a chocolate chip cookie followed by a swig of (almond) milk!

Hello internet world! My name is Jess and I welcome you to my experimental, hopefully long-lasting and successful vegan food blog! Eleven months ago (September 2016), I made the decision to discontinue my carnivorous ways and change to a mostly plant-based diet. As a month or so past, I figured why not try this whole "vegan" thing and completely cut out not only flesh, but dairy, eggs, and any other animal bi-products from my diet and lifestyle. I am now coming up on a year since my journey began and I feel better than ever! This lifestyle choice is extremely beneficial for so many reasons including personal health, the environment and of course loving instead of eating and mistreating our fellow earthlings. Prior to making my positively life-changing decision I had always had the thought of doing it in the back of my mind. Coming from a Hispanic family and culture where multiple forms of meat are crucial to every meal, I never thought I could actually really commit to it long-term. Once I dove in to this challenge I realized it really wasn't even a massive challenge and every day after a delicious meal I thought to myself, "Hey this isn't bad at all!" The purpose of this blog is to highlight the abundance of vegan-friendly products that are out there and how I included them in my every day, easy to make meals during my transition and even now. I've always been a food lover and am eager to indulge in tasteful meals, snacks and desserts. So whether you are vegan already, interested in becoming one but don't know where to start, or you are just curious to experience the awesomeness of vegan foods, TURN ON your vegan self and check out these amazing options that are just waiting to be made by YOU!
