Vegan Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies
These vegan whole wheat chocolate chip cookies are the perfect snow day distraction
We have been having lots of cold weather and snow days here. We have had 7 snow days, the first one being the day before Christmas vacation. And then we had 3 days after Christmas vacation was supposed to be over. Then two more this week. We have had lots of beautiful snow but unfortunately it has been too cold to play in it much.
I am a bit of a homebody and enjoy staying home, especially when it’s frigid outside and I have 3 kids to drag along, so I have actually enjoyed the snow days. However, the kids start to get cabin fever and begin to climb the walls. Or drive you up them.
Cookies to the rescue. They can help you mix up the dough, while stealing a few licks. One of the advantages of vegan baking. Then they can look forward to a warm and gooey chocolate chip cookie. All in all you’ve occupied them for close to half an hour.
I’ve tried a few different recipes for vegan chocolate chip cookies and have finally found the winner.
These cookies are so good no one will guess that they are vegan. And they are moderately healthy. Well, as far as chocolate chip cookies go.
Note: I tried a batch of these using Earth Balance sticks instead of the coconut oil and we preferred the coconut oil version.
If we have too many more snow days we may have to drag out the Play-doh.
But first we will make more cookies.
