I wanted to share with you my super yummy and easy to make chocolate chip cookie recipe! This recipe was actually first made to make two giant chocolate chip cookies. My husband and I had gone out for dinner and one of the dessert options which wasn’t vegan…was a giant chocolate chip cookie with a dollop of ice cream! That had me thinking I NEED to veganize this! So last week if you follow me on instagram you would have seen in my instagram story the giant cookies!
First Post of 2018
The last time I posted on my blog, I had no idea my life would change. Completely oblivious that in that same month I would find out something pretty amazing. I found out I was pregnant. Although this little intro has nothing to do with my blog post at all I wanted to let everyone know why i was not actively blogging. this was three months ago. Today I am half way through my pregnancy. YAY!
Another fun fact this is my first post for 2018! and I hope this will be one of the many in the coming months. I have thought long and hard about what to post. And if I should change my focus of my blog…I decided to just go back to the basics, for now…FOOD
I love FOOD and being pregnant I think food has become number one in my life!!! I have been eating a whole lot of certain foods I wouldn’t call it cravings because I have always loved them but I seem to be loving it whole lot more. These foods include Avocados, raspberries, peanut butter sandwiches (yes just peanut butter i don’t like jam!!) and cucumbers.
I have been getting creative in the kitchen again, I found in my first trimester I was really just not willing to move all that much… I had even stopped working out!! But as soon as I entered into my second trimester I bounced back into my old self and have been whipping up some fun foods one of which is this chocolate chip cookie recipe!
The Chocolate Chip Cookie
I made this chocolate chip cookie recipe with regular flour but I have made it a number of times with a 1 for 1 gluten free flour mix and its turned out tasting exactly the same! So to make this gluten free just swap out the flours! Also I find the best kind of chocolate chip cookies have ALOT of chocolate chips! I love to also chop up a dark chocolate bar and mix it into the batter to add some extra dimension to the cookies.
I used coconut sugar instead of white sugar. It gives it a nice sweetness and allows you to have the brown sugar goodness a chocolate chip cookie needs. All with out the sugar crash afterwards. Coconut sugar is made from the sap of the coconut palm. It actually maintains some of it’s original nutrients It’s a much better alternative then refined white sugar. All in all this recipe makes around 24-32 cookies depending on the size you scoop out on your cookie sheet!
