How can you make a chocolate chip cookie vegan?
- We don’t use butter, eggs and milk. Instead we use oil, your choice of milk (oat, soy, almond and rice milk work great!) and extra sugar to help bind all the ingredients together.
- Refrigerate the dough before baking. Chilling the cookie dough prevents our vegan cookies from spreading when baking. Or you know, just skip all those steps and just eat the cookie dough with a spoon, I won’t tell anyone.
- And finally, we use a lot of vegan chocolate chips.
Are chocolate chips vegan?
This is one of the most common questions we get when we start baking vegan treats and it’s definitely one question we have when we read about a vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe.
The answer is that not all chocolate chips are vegan. While chocolate itself is vegan sometimes brands add some milk into the chips for flavor.
However your local supermarket probably already stocks a couple of vegan options. Make sure you check the ingredient list before purchasing.
