How To Make Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and chocolate chips in the bowl. Stir well.

Add the non-dairy milk, oil, and pure vanilla extract. Stir to form a cookie dough. It will be dry at first, so just keep stirring and it will suddenly turn into cookie dough.

Optional - Press the dough into one big ball. Refrigerate at least two hours or overnight, or freeze until the dough is cold.

Once chilled, preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius. Roll chocolate chip cookie dough balls, and place the balls on a greased cookie tray. Leave enough room between cookies for spreading when they bake.

Cook for 12-14 minutes on the oven’s centre rack. The cookies will look underdone when you remove them from the oven. This is what you want, because they continue to firm up considerably as they cool.
