These are the chocolate chip cookies that my mommy produced me maturing– and it’s likewise one of the very first dishes that I ever veganized,waaaaay back in high school. At the time, I susbstituted vegan margarine for the butter, and since the recipe didn’t require any milk or eggs, it was otherwise already vegan.
I had not had these in years, so my mommy decided to make them for me when I was home last month. She believed she ‘d try using coconut oil rather of margarine and guess what? They were even much better that method! The cookies were delicious and light, therefore much healthier than the original variation.
Yes, they have a cup of sugar in them (1/4 cup white, 3/4 cup brown). They also have 2 cups of oats, 3/4 cup of antioxidant-rich dark chocolate, an half a cup of heart-healthy walnuts. And hello, you got ta live a little sometimes?
Was attempting to use coconut oil from a container that I keep in my fridge, however it way too firm to even measure out of the container. If it’s winter season when you’re making these, or you live in a chillier climate, then you ought to be able to utilize the coconut oil at room temperature level. If it’s summer where you are and/or you live in a warm environment, then your coconut oil will likely be liquid at room temperature level.
