Whether you follow a clean diet, vegan, vegetarian, gluten free or any other combination out there - no diet should be without chocolate chip cookies.  In the past I’ve experimented with baking without dairy and my results were not so good.  It took me a few attempts but this time in the end I came up with a gooey, chocolately and buttery tasting cookie.  I’m not proud to admit it but my family devoured the whole pan in one sitting!  My in-laws are in town visiting and we had them over for dinner.  I made these cookie bars for dessert and they had no idea they were vegan!  I’ll definitely be making them again and again.  Next time I might even add a bit of peanut butter to really spice things up - cause that’s how I roll!
