Perfect Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here’s part two of Cookie Fest 2011. These chocolate chip cookies are slightly salty with the perfect amount of sweet. They are chewy but crunchy on the bottom (I think the turbinado plays a huge role in this!). I promise these will be a hit with anyone who takes a bite!

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used Ghiradelli)
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup soy/almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp dark molasses or maple syrup
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.
  3. In a smaller bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (except for the chocolate chips)
  4. Combine the two and mix well. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Drop by the spoonful onto the baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life. Please feel free to submit your thoughts and recipes! Namaste. "One choice at a time, with intention and compassion for our selves and our planet, we can eat clean and live well." -Terry Walters
