If you like chocolate chip cookies – this is the ultimate recipe! Even if you’re not vegan, these cookies are THAT good; crunchy, chocolate-y and so delicious.
It’s very easy to make and you don’t even have to use an electric mixer, but just whisk everything together with a spatula.

200 grams dark brown sugar
60 ml. (1/4 cup) olive oil
60 ml. (1/4 cup) vegetable oil
75 ml. (1/3 cup) water
