Anyone who knows me knows that my love for chocolate chip cookies runs deep. They’re basically my favorite food, and I make sure to always have the ingredients to whip up a batch on hand. Whether it be a holiday, a rainy day, a sad day, a happy day, a birthday, a Monday or a movie night, chocolate chip cookies are always a good idea.
Since Gray is allergic to eggs and dairy, I’ve done a ton of vegan baking since he was a baby. Some recipes are vegan and some I “veganize.” If you’re not familiar with flax eggs, they’re definitely something you should try. You mix one tablespoon of flax meal with three tablespoons of water and let it sit for a few minutes. That mixture equal one egg, and you can use that same ratio to substitute multiple eggs in a recipe.
Lucky for you guys, I’ve gone through the grueling task of trying dozens of chocolate chip cookie recipes. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it. I’ve come up with other recipes I love, but always come back to this one.
One thing to note is that you want to make sure you’re measuring your ingredients, (especially the flour) correctly. Sally bakes has a great Baking 101 post and you can read it here if you’re interested!
I can whip these cookies up in less than ten minutes without having to get a million bowls dirty or taking out the mixer. I purposely came up with a recipe that yielded a good amount of cookies because I like to bake a few cookies and freeze the rest. I started doing this when Grayson was a newborn so that I would always have cookies that were ready to toss into the oven if someone was coming over, or if I wanted to bring cookies to someone’s house.
I use a cookie scoop (usually a medium or large one depending on how big I want them to be). Then, I scoop out all of the cookie dough and place them on a cookie sheet that’s lined with wax paper. I leave the dough in the fridge overnight, and then transfer it to freezer bags and put them in the freezer. You can leave them in the freezer for about three months-although they usually don’t last that long in my house. When I have multiple types of chocolate chip cookies in my freezer, that’s when I feel like I really have my life together the most.
I hope you guys love these cookies as much as I do! I’ve seriously been telling people I was going to start a blog so I could post this recipe for years. I would love to hear what you guys think!
Thanks for reading!
