There are some things in life that everyone needs – love, laughter, a killer pair of shoes and a failsafe cookie recipe. We all need that one reliable recipe that we can whip up at the last minute for a party, bake sale or with a much-needed cup of tea. One that we know won’t go wrong, will taste delicious and we won’t waste time and money creating.
This is mine.
Now, with a few simple alterations they are my failsafe’wouldn’t know they were vegan chocolate chip cookies are egg free, nut free and dairy free . They are just as good as the original – I’m sure Nestle would agree – and my husband had no idea I had even changed the recipe until I gave one to J!
Ingredients (Makes 24)
100g dairy free spread
100g caster sugar
40g brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
60g apple sauce
150g plain flour
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
½ tsp salt
80g dairy free chocolate chips (I use Kinnerton chocolate)
Cream together sugar and butter. Beat in apple sauce and vanilla essence.
Mix in flour, bicarbonate soda, and salt. Add chocolate chips.
Put heaped teaspoons of mixture onto cookie tray with space for them to spread.
Bake for 10 mins at 180c until golden brown.
(TIP: I chop up a bar of chocolate instead of using chocolate chips. It is cheaper and I like having some large chunks and smaller slithers)
