Who can say no to a chocolate chip cookie? Apparently not me as I said YES to about 3 of these this morning when I whipped them up! I made this vegan, sugar free recipe up on the fly and thought it would need revisions. It didn't. These are moist, delicious and will fool your friends that don't think vegan baked goods can be tasty. Make sure you use stevia for baking that measures cup for cup with sugar. Most Stevia blends are sweeter than sugar so this is important. I used Lily's Dark Chocolate Chips. They are my favorite. They are vegan and sweetened with stevia. Have them with a cup of coffee or glass of almond milk and enjoy! Links included for your convenience.
