The Perfect Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie - How To Recipe
A perfect vegan cookie is hard to find, but worry not, this recipe will give you everything you could wish for in a chocolate chip cookie - Gooey, crunchy, soft, delicious, and super easy to make in just 30 minutes!
Whenever I speak to anyone about raising children in a Vegan household...
my number one tip is always - List your favourite foods and snacks and research a good imitation recipe. If you have those family favourites to hand it's easy to stay on track when trying to live a cruelty free lifestyle.
I'm still yet to find a good bar of Vegan chocolate (please let me know if you have found something because the struggle is real over here) but one thing I will say is vegan chocolate does melt down and taste really good in baking.
My children's all time favourite treat is cookies, and this recipe is a firm favourite. It's so quick and easy to make and the cookies last 4-5 days in a tin or lidded Tupper wear.
- 125g golden caster sugar
- 200g vegan margarine
- 1 tsp Madagascan vanilla essence
- 100g caster sugar
- 2 tbsp baking powder
- 250g plain flour
- pinch of salt
- 200g vegan dark chocolate broken up into small pieces
- 1 tbsp oat milk
- Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4 and line two baking trays with baking parchment paper.
- Pop the vegan margarine, the Madagascan vanilla extract, and both sugars into a large bowl. Sift the plain flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt into the bowl and whisk everything until thoroughly combined and almost smooth.
- Break up the vegan chocolate and add the chocolate chips and oat milk and mix again until the chocolate chips are thoroughly combined.
- Use an ice cream scoop, two dessertspoons, or your hands to drop neat balls of dough onto the lined baking trays allowing plenty of space between each cookie as they will spread during cooking.
- Bake for about 10 minutes, or until they start to look golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and leave to cool on the baking trays for 5 minutes until they've become a bit firmer and you're able to transfer.
