Vegan chocolate chip cookies

Chocolate chip cookies

My boyfriend made me some cookies the other day and they were tasty, but something wasn’t quite right about them. They were a little too thick, a little bit too hard and they definitely needed some chocolate chips. So I made a few changes to an already pretty good recipe and it produce some very yummy results!

Ingredients:

200g/7oz vegan margarine
200g/7oz sugar
2/3 tbsp oil
1 tsp vanilla extract/essence
250g/9oz plain flour
1 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
200g/7oz vegan chocolate (if you get chocolate bars, the big bits of chocolate are much nicer than little bags of vegan chocolate chips, but they work too)

Method:

  1. Preheat over to 180
  2. Grease/line a baking tray
  3. In a big bowl add the butter and sugar, and then beat them until they are light and fluffy.
  4. Add the oil and vanilla essence and mix them all together well.
  5. Add the flour, baking powder and salt to the bowl (using a sieve) and use a wooden spoon to mix them all together well.
  6. Chop the chocolate up into small pieces then stir them into the mix.
  7. Pour the mix onto the baking trays with a large spoon. Remember to leave plenty of space between scoops.
  8. Put them in the oven for 15 minutes (until they go golden brown, and the centres are still slightly soft to the touch).
