Egg-Free, Wheat-Free, Dairy-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by KDub275

I threw these cookies together yesterday for a family dinner. My fiance thinks they are the best cookies I've ever made - very soft and a little crumbly. I didn't actually measure each ingredient as I tend to eyeball certain things but I've been baking for years so my approximations are usually close!

Made these this afternoon and were very tasty. I used brown sugar instead of white, and it tasted like a fluffy graham cracker. We also used light dairy free margarine which may be why they turned out fluffy. The only real negative I have about this recipe is they fell apart into crumbles. They definitely needed 1 tsp of xanthan gum. Very happy to have found a recipe that is gluten free and vegan!
