Vegan Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Vegan Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are my go-to weekday cookies – quick, delicious, and reasonably nutritious. I make them so often I don’t think I have the recipe written down anywhere – it’s as much a part of my routine memory as how to fill the coffee maker (well, my non-pregnant routine) or make pasta marinara. Delicious straight out of the oven with an ice cold glass of almond milk or on their own – I dare you to have just one!


1/2 c. Earth Balance or other vegan butter stick, softened

1/4 c. organic brown sugar

1/4 c. evaporated cane juice

1 t. arrowroot powder

1 T. water

1 t. vanilla

1/2 t. baking soda

1 c. + 2 T. white whole wheat flour

1/2 c. vegan chocolate bits

1/2 c. pecans, chopped (or walnuts, if desired)
