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.

Recipe Notes

  • Keep the cookies in a sealed jar up to a week.
  • Instead of dark chocolate you can be use milk or white chocolate (then the cookies won't be vegan though).
  • You can use plain all-purpose flour instead of spelt flour the same amount.
