Dave's Best Vegan Choc Chip Cookies

"This one has a story. Dave particularly liked this one brand of bought vegan cookies and wanted to work out the recipe. So he started with the ingredient list and experimented with various amounts of each. He took it to a vegan board. After various discussions and many batches of cookies later, this is the final version."

  1. made 25. had a fine texture, a bit cake like though. a bit salty. maybe no salt needed. i also put less oil in and they still tasted very oily so maybe i should have put less. instead of 1/2 cup maybe only 1/4 is needed. but good though/ Thank you.
  2. Mmm... I liked the texture.
  3. Not bad, but not great. The texture is too cakey.
  4. these are fab. the dough was dry, so i added about a tablespoon of melted Earth Balance vegan buttery spread. my roommates and coworkers loved them. recipe made me 30, so they made a good holiday gift.
  5. All I can say is thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe. They are delicious, and taste perfect.


I'm an ex-pat NZer living in the tropical Top End of Australia. Which makes it a perfect place to make homemade bread and summer recipes all year around. I experiment on my 3 kids who have grown up trying new Zaar recipes every other day and they are thriving. I'm the lacto-ovo vegetarian in the family and somehow I got roped in to become a Forum Host here at Zaar. So check out the Vegetarian and Vegan Forum http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewforum.zsp?f=43 and feel free to join in whether you are a fully fledged vegan or someone who needs to cater for a vegetarian and has no idea where to start. Every year I try to do something a bit different to push the envelope a little bit. In 2005 I learned how to sail a dinghy; 2006's grand passion is mosaics. Check out my blog! Between raising three children, working almost fulltime and trying to pursue my hobbies...let's say that my time management skills have greatly improved over the years! I am also very interested in living a sustainable lifestyle. Essentially I'm finding that I'm getting back to the country lifestyle I enjoyed in my childhood even though these days I live in themiddle of suburbia. To this end I have started gardening although I am a total gardening virgin when it comes to gardening in a tropical climate. I also have a cookbook with a number of recipes you can make from scratch. Living clean and green is good for you AND cheaper!
