Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chips cookies can be vegan
Who doesn’t like a nice, moist chocolate chip cookie? I love them and these vegan chocolate chip cookies are amazing. It is important that you get the vegan chocolate chips because many chocolate chips actually include milk.
These vegan chocolate chip cookies are just like regular chocolate chip cookies recipes, however, they are vegan cookies, so no eggs. The chocolate chips and milk are replaced with plant based options. So you need the regular white flour, baking soda, sugar, brown sugar, salt, vegan milk and some more, chocolate chips, vegetable oil of your choice, and vanilla extracts. Combine the ingredients together as you would for regular chocolate chip cookies, dry and wet separate and combine. The key point is once the vegan cookie dough forms, put them in the freezer. Once chilled, bake as usual and remember not to over bake them, once done let them cool down and settle. Perfect vegan chocolate chip cookies are done!

Personal Favorite, Vegan Snickerdoodles

Delicious Snickerdoodles
I love a snickerdoodle, they are the perfect cookie to eat warm. Vegan snickerdoodles are just the same, they pair so well with a cup of tea. The best thing about vegan snickerdoodles are unlike other vegan cookies, they are nice and soft. The warm and puffy texture makes them the perfect vegan cookies for winter.
The key with vegan snickerdoodles is the tiny tang which is created with some cream of tartar and some apple cider vinegar. You also need some vegan butter, white sugar, all purpose flour, vanilla extract, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and any plant based milk. You will have some extra sugar and cinnamon powder for the outer layers. Not just bake them and eat them warm with some tea. What a great way to spend your cold winter afternoon.
