White chocolate chip cookies for vegans? It used to be a dream, but not anymore. As veganism entered mainstream years ago, many companies have rushed to add vegan options to the most beloved foods, including white chocolate.
It's now easier to find vegan (aka dairy-free) white chocolate chips at the supermarket and even more so online. And if you are into DIY chocolate, it's not hard to make it at home. We talk about this in the FAQ section, after the recipe.
Even though white chocolate is not as healthy as the dark variant, we still worked hard to make our white chocolate chip cookies as nourishing as possible.
So we replaced all unnecessary fats from butter with protein-rich and nutritious peanut butter. Almond nut spread would be a tasty option as well.
We swapped cow milk with almond milk. We like to use almond milk because almonds are a rich source of vitamin E, magnesium, and healthy fats, all in a third of the calories. Another plant-based milk option for these cookies is oat milk or even hazelnut milk for extra nutty flavour!
And finally, we have used oatmeal instead of wheat flour. This way, our cookies are not just vegan, but also gluten-free! Plus we get biscuits rich with healthy fibres.
We hope you'll enjoy these cookies as much as we did. Let's get baking!
NOTE: The default ingredients yield 12 cookies, and one serving consists of 2 cookies.
