Is it just me, or is the best part about cookies the cookie dough? Ok, cookies fresh out of the oven are pretty heavenly, too. But there’s just something about cookie dough that’s so insanely delicious. I hope you enjoy my healthier take on vegan cookie dough!
Vegan chocolate chips are one place where I feel like it’s important to splurge on high quality ingredients. I’ve made this recipe with both highly quality vegan chocolate chips, and with mediocre vegan chocolate chips. The taste difference is absolutely huge! Truly, it surprised me what a difference it makes. I prefer the Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Morsels or Mini Chips.
