Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Vegan chocolate chunk cookies

These Chocolate Chunk Cookies are more dense and filling. While traditional chocolate chip cookies tend to flatten out while these stay thick and "cake like". You'll be happy just eating one, but you will find it hard not to go back for another!

This recipe makes 15 cookies.

1 tbsp           Safflower oil
