Vegan Chocolate Cookies

So, one of my vegan friends has been pestering me to make her some baked vegan treats for ages now and I’ve only just gotten around to it because I’m an awful friend. I decided to make cookies because cookies are life! I even fed these to non-vegans and they thoroughly enjoyed. I also gave a few to a baker friend that is constantly saying how all vegan food sucks without telling him they were vegan and he asked for the recipe. Yes, I gave him so much grief for it! Even if you’re not a vegan these cookies are super tasty and you 100% need to try them.
