Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Vegan Chocolate Cookies [Oil-Free & Gluten-Free]

Those vegan chocolate chip cookies were born when I was about to make another batch of my homemade chocolate candies. So, I already had made a variation of my oatmeal mix when I suddenly had a craving for vegan chocolate chip cookies instead. Thus, I played around with the ingredients as well as proportions and a new recipe was born.

Be aware, those vegan chocolate chip cookies are not something you could mindlessly munch on! It’s because considerable amount of calories in this recipe come from fat – 46.5% to be more precise. However, my vegan chocolate chip cookies recipe includes only whole food ingredients (except xylitol) making it a lot healthier compared to any conventional chocolate cookies. The reason I use xylitol instead of whole food sweeteners such as dried fruit, is that I’m living Candida free after the cleanse.

Furthermore, my vegan chocolate chip cookies are also gluten-free, oil-free, refined sugar free and obviously Candida diet friendly.

Tips on my vegan chocolate chip cookies:

  • You might also melt all the cocoa mass and combine it with oatmeal mixture. This way the batter wouldn’t stick to your fingers at all!
  • Feel free to use dark chocolate chips instead of chopped cocoa paste.
  • Store the cookies in a sealed container in fridge or freezer.
  • Heat the cookies in oven if you like them crispy.
  • Finally, you may add more or less xylitol depending on how sweet you like them.
