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).

So now that we are in December you are probably in the midst of “bulking” season (a.k.a. annual weight gain due to holiday eating and not giving a fuck) LOL! And guess what we are just going to keep it going all through December because I have a bunch of sweets and delicious meals planned for this month! Today’s recipe is one of my all-time favorite desserts which I learned to make from my grandma.
