Chocolate Chip Cookies? Yes, Please!

There are plenty of recipes online that claim to be the best vegan chocolate chip cookie out there. I've tried many of them, but by trial and error I believe I truly have THE BEST. Hopefully you'll follow this recipe and it'll result in an amazing cookie for you; one that melts in your mouth and makes you yearn for an ice cold glass of rice milk so you can cuddle up in front of the fireplace with a good book. If not, use it as a starting point to develop your own "best" cookie. Everyone needs one.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 cup softened vegan butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 tbsp flax meal mixed w/ 6 tbsp warm water (let it sit until congealed)
1 12oz pkg vegan chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts(optional)

Heat oven to 375°F. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large bowl until creamy. Add flax meal. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts, if desired. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes MAX. GENTLY remove from cookie sheet and place on wire rack to cool (they should still be super soft, will form more as they cool).

Makes 2 dozen big cookies.
