This recipe is my go to for potlucks because who doesn't love cookies? Everyone thinks that when something is vegan it will taste "weird" but with this recipe I never tell anyone that its vegan before they try. They are always surprised that it has no milk or eggs because it "looks like a regular cookie." This is my favorite trick people into eating vegan food recipes.
After you make the dough, you can add any ingredients, nuts, Oreos, peanut butter, but for this recipe is the classic chocolate chip. For the first two pictures I added Oreos! I like Enjoy Life chocolate chips but you can substitute the chocolate chips for your favorite vegan chips. You can also enjoy this recipe raw, uncooked, if you just want to binge with a bowl of cookie dough.
