Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies


I often make these delicious vegan chocolate chip cookies and they are always a hit! :) Most recently, I made it for one of the Diwali nights for all my cousins and they were polished off super quickly! I have been asked for the recipe multiple times and I figured it's high time I post it up on my blog so I can just link it then next time someone asks me how to make them. :)

Vegan Chocolate Chunk Cookies

1 C whole wheat flour
1 C all purpose flour (maida)
1 C vegan chocolate chips (in India, chopped Bournville dark chocolate bars would work since they're the most common vegan chocolate bars available here)
3/4 chopped walnuts or pecans
3/4 maple syrup (can be replaced with sugar syrup too but please no date syrup or liquid jaggery because they just don't produce the best taste or texture)
1/2 C oil (I like to use either coconut or olive oil)
1 T Baking Powder
1 t Vanilla Extract
1/8 t Salt
1/2 C water (or any vegan milk like ricemilk/soymilk etc...)

Preheat oven to 180 C/350 F
Mix the dry ingredients together (except chocolate and nuts).
Add wet ingredients and mix.
Stir in the chocolate and walnuts.
Pop some fresh cookie dough in your mouth and take a deep, blissful breath.
Resist the temptation to finish the rest of the dough.
Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet.
Bake for 15-20 mins.

Serve hot and enjoy! :)

    1. Hi Mayuri. :)

      You can just use water instead of plant milks. I do that often now with my chocolate chip cookies.

      I wouldn't recommend dairy. It will change the taste and texture as well as drastically reduce the shelf life of the cookies.
