Recipe | Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today I thought I’d share another super easy (but delicious) recipe!  I first shared this recipe in the early days of my blog, but not too many people saw it then, so I thought I’d post it again! As you can tell by the title, this recipe is for vegan chocolate chip cookies — my favourite! This is my recipe that I use all the time when I make cookies. I find it’s a very versatile recipe; the cookie dough can be used as the base for any type of cookie. Take out the chocolate chips and you can add anything you want! I hope you enjoy! And if you’re interested, I’ve shared a PDF printable of this recipe down below!
