Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies (Cakies)

Eating a vegan or plant-based diet doesn’t mean you can’t have a special treat every now and then. The good part about a plant-based whole foods diet is that most of the food we eat is healthy, even if it is a little decadent. Tonight we were in the mood for some vegan chocolate chip cookies so I whipped up a quick batch. Things cook a little differently without oil, margarine or butter and Steve renamed them Chocolate Chip Cakies due to their lighter and more cake-like texture. They were still delicious!!
