Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Before going vegan my favorite Chocolate chip cookie recipe was the one you can find on the back of a Toll House chocolate chip package. That was my inspiration for this recipe, I’ve gotta say the taste and texture are pretty darn close to what I remember… Crispy on the edges, chewy in the middle, oh so delightfully “buttery”.

I’m not a big fan of drinking straight up almond, soy, rice milk, etc… so I was dipping these in hot Chai tea with a splash of rice milk in it. Try it, you wont be disappointed.
