My chocolate chip cookie dreams have come true. Don’t get me wrong, I love a traditional chocolate chip cookie filled with vegan butter and cane sugar, but knowing I have a major sweet tooth and would like to have cookies more often, it’s nice to have healthier options.

These cookies are sweetened with coconut sugar and contain almond and coconut flour. Instead of vegan butter, coconut oil is used instead. And of course…always vegan here.

They are so soft and moist…and will simply melt in your mouth.

I highly recommend using chopped dark chocolate for this recipe opposed to chocolate chips. The chunks of chocolate will create the most luscious pools of chocolate and will be sure to create that ooey, gooey texture.
