Now when I say this eggless chocolate chip cookies recipe was made on the spot, I literally mean it. I had been craving choc chip cookies for weeks but for some reason or other, I had to postpone the plan. This morning I woke up adamant on making some chocolate cookies.
So, when the time came to bake and my mum was resting, I decided to make my easy chocolate cookies recipe. I went into the kitchen and went to get the ingredients. Then I realised that we had no eggs, no vanilla extract and no chocolate chips. I was so angry because I had really wanted to make my chocolate chip cookies. I sent my brother to the shops so I could salvage my disaster.
He went and returned empty handed. Like there were no eggs in any store. That’s how you know the UK is in quarantine. The food stocks just seem to disappear. So, I had to improvise. I wasn’t really sure about what to do about the vanilla extract but apparently it doesn’t really add any flavour so that wasn’t an issue. The eggs were a problem, but then vegans eat chocolate chip cookies so there must be an alternative. I decided to increase the amount of butter and added some baking soda to act as a leavening agent. The chocolate chips were easily replaced. I chopped up some dark chocolate and added that instead. I wasn’t entirely sure what I was doing if I am being entirely honest with you, but it worked. The eggless cookies were a success with the plate being finished immediately.
This is a soft chocolate chip cookie recipe made with chocolate chunks. The secret to soft cookies is to remove the cookies from the oven before you actually think they are done as the residual heat will cook them further. They are supposed to be a little bit doughy when you remove these buttery chocolate chip cookies from the oven but trust me it’s fine. Don’t be tempted to put them into the oven again. Just leave them to cool and it will be worth the wait.
These chocolate chunk cookies are the perfect snack alongside a cold glass of milk.
