[Vegan] Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ok ok, i know I’m falling off the healthy wagon posting cookie recipes lately, but hey these are health(ier), recipes. After all, these recipes are made at home with no preservatives and healthier ingredient options to choose from based on your dietary preferences. Prime example – these can be made vegan by using coconut oil, coconut milk and dairy-free chocolate chips. Hey, remember although healthier, no one ever said that eating vegan was lo-cal. Portion control is key!! One of these at a time would be a treat without feeling too guilty. Try it! Self control combined with healthier ingredients are always a win/win. Can’t wait to make these for my partner and parents.
