Just in time for the Holiday Season, we have created two versions of the vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie recipes. One is the classic one and the other one is the healthy version. But first, the classic Chocolate Chip Cookie one. We use dark chocolate rather than chips because you get a much stronger flavour of chocolate and it also looks much nicer.
One key thing to keep in mind when you make cookies, ALWAYS cool your dough before baking. The colder, the nicer your cookies will bake.
In a pan, start by melting the butter slowly on low heat. Then, in a mixing bowl add the sugar and slowly stream in the melted butter using a whisk. When homogenous and smooth, add the milk and stir briefly again.
Add the flour and stir as little as possible but until it’s well mixed. Cut the chocolate in chunks and add to cookie dough.
Chill the mixture for 1 hour or overnight in the fridge or for a quick chill in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes. It should be very cold but not frozen.
Pre-heat the oven at 160 degrees celsius with fan mode or 180 degrees without fan.
Once the dough is cold and hard, using an ice-cream scoop form 10 balls and transfer to two trays lined with baking paper. Make sure to leave at least 7 cm gap in between each balls.
Bake for around 8 minutes, then turn the tray to make sure the cookies are cooked evenly and cook another 4 to 6 minutes until the sides start to get golden. Remove from the oven and allow to completely cool before transferring onto a plate.
