I am finally able to say that have nailed the perfect Vegan Chocolate Chips Cookies! They are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, making the perfect afternoon treat.
Last Sunday afternoon – after one month in quarantine, while I would normally bake every 2 or 3 days, I felt quite low in energy and as a result had not baked for a week (apart from teaching my boyfriend how to make a banana bread, which he ended up doing better than I 😊). Both sitting in the sofa, watching Star Wars and wishing we had something sweet to enjoy it with I thought “ok let’s do some very quick cookies” and be back in the sofa in no more than 10 minutes! But because according to my boyfriend my best recipes happen when I don’t write them down, he decided to watch and take notes. And my favourite cookie was born!
I always use one of my favourite vegan chocolate when making cookies: the chocolate bar Ombar. They have so many different flavours, my favourite is the 90% cacao followed by the Salt & Nibs bar because there is nothing better than salted chocolate.
I love what this brand stands for, they truly care about keeping the benefits that each bars of chocolate contains, they don’t roast the cacao beans but heat them at very low temperature to retain all the goodness of this superfood.
Cacao is a great source of antioxidants your body needs to combat free radicals and so although chocolate bars won’t contain as much antioxidants as the cacao powder it is still a good source. Remember the higher cacao content the best so try and choose to eat chocolate with a cacao content above 70%.
Back to our Vegan Chocolate Chips recipe
Because of the shortage of flour, I haven’t been able to find any gluten-free flour so I am using a mix of spelt flour and almond powder in these Vegan Chocolate Chips Cookies. If you are gluten intolerant you can swap the spelt flour for a gluten-free one.
BONUS: I am using maple syrup meaning this recipe is refined sugar free.

Can these cookies be made with plain flour instead of spelt flour? How should they be stored and how long will they stay fresh? Thanks.
