Easy Vegan Choc Chip Cookies

Choc Chip Cookies

For over five years now, my Wednesday Workshop children have requested these cookies as their end of term treat. Who would have thought that a vegan wholemeal cookie would be such a hit!

I must admit, the children were a little surprised when I first admitted that they were vegan, but it didn’t deter them. To be honest, I got more cautious looks when I told them they were wholemeal, but even this wasn’t enough to put them off. They enthusiastically tucked in then proceeded to give me lots of lovely compliments. They even declared them to be the ‘Best Choc Chip Cookie Ever!’ What an accolade for a humble home-made cookie!

The children often ask me ‘what’s in the cookies?’ If they’re not made with butter and eggs, what are they made of?

So, after all these years, I though it was high time I shared the recipe. And since I source my favourite choc chip cookie ingredients from Suma, it seems the perfect recipe to share for this month’s Suma Blogger’s Network entry.

The cookies are incredibly easy to make. They don’t contain any fancy or ‘weird’ ingredients. Just a few basic pantry staples – wholewheat flour, baking soda, unrefined sugar, oil, vanilla extract, a drop of soya milk and maple syrup and, of course, the choc chips!

I love Plamil chocolate because it’s produced in a factory that is 100% nut free, dairy free and vegan. The company has a great ethos and it puts my mind at rest to know there’s no chance of ‘trace of milk or nuts’ appearing in the cookies that I share with school children.

The wholefood wholesaler Suma supplies Plamil chocolate to independent health food shops across the UK. It can also be ordered directly from the company. To date, I’ve always used Plamil’s dark choc chips but I’ve just noticed that they stock milk choc chips. I definitely need to give those a try!

  3. Wow, they look so good! I’m going to try subbing oil for aqua faba! 🙂 We generally use oats in cooking in place of flour these days & it definitely doesn’t flatten out like these ones!
