 So, I haven't been able to persue my awesome course of veganism while staying with a french host family for the start of the year, it would have been impossible for them, but to be honest the dairy and so on is completely grossing me out and I can't wait to return to veganism. But I haven't found a good vegan choc chip cookie recipe yet - all I want is a good plain cookie, and they're always strangely flavoured or textured or taste too healthy. Vegans deserve junk food too!! So if anyone has a scrummy recipe or photos or advice it would be most appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

There is a recipe in the Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar cookbook that's pretty good.  I thought they had a great texture and nice flavor, thought perhaps not *exactly* the same as the Nestle Tollhouse recipe.  My husband was not as much of a fan, although he did eat many of them.  Smiley  I liked that they didn't require shortening, since I'm trying to avoid palm oil for environmental reasons.  Don't make the whole wheat ones by accident, though, those definitely have that "healthy" taste (although they're not bad if you're expecting that)!

The Nestle Tollhouse recipe can actually be made using vegetable shortening (or margarine) and flaxseed+water as an egg substitute (google for the right proportion).  The texture is very slightly different - a little harder and slightly less rich tasting, but barely noticeable.  The flax seed does leave a slightly speckled look, but if you weren't looking for it you probably wouldn't notice.  Other egg substitutes might give better results.

Another recipe to try is from this video: Vegan Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I haven't tried it, but I think I might soon.  Well, maybe not *too* soon.  There has been a near-constant supply of cookies in the house since we got the Vegan Cookies book from the library.. Wink

Just in case, I should also add that not all chocolate chips are vegan, so be sure to check the labels if that's important to you.
