I love a good Chocolate Chip Cookie. Back in the day, when I followed a Paleo Diet, I came across The Paleo Mom website. She has young kids, so most of her recipes are created with her kids in mind. I decided to check out her desserts and came across the best Almond Butter Chocolate Chip cookie you will ever put into your mouth!
So when I got a craving for a chocolate chip cookie, this cookie popped into my mind. I had to tweak a few ingredients to make it vegan-friendly, and guess what...it still came out amazing! So thank you #thepaleomom for your original recipe.
I hope you enjoy this vegan version of the recipe as much as I do. It is definitely, “slap your mama good” worthy.
The original recipe called for ½ cup of extra virgin coconut oil, but I cut it to ¼ cup. In my opinion, it made the cookie a little too greasy for my taste.
I have made this recipe with peanut butter for you folk that don’t care for almond butter. It is just as yummy! But if you do like almond butter or have not tried it before, my go to almond butter is Justin's classic Almond Butter.
I found a vegan light brown sugar that I like. It is a little courser than regular brown sugar, but I couldn’t tell the difference.
My first time trying this egg replacement was with this recipe. The Neat Egg it was very easy to make. 2 tablespoons of water and 1 tablespoon of the “egg powder” was the equivalent of one egg. It did the job of a regular egg, I was impressed.
The chocolate chips I replaced with Enjoy Life chocolate chips. This brand is very allergy-friendly. You will never go back to regular chocolate chips!
The recipe itself takes no time to whip together, but you must chill the dough for at least 20 minutes or your cookies will be a fail.
I also noticed with this modified recipe. That you have to let the cookies cool off before you can transfer them because the cookies crumble when they are hot. Once they cool off they are fine.
What you have finally been waiting for...the recipe!
I would love to hear your feedback on what you think.
