Cookies: arguably the most underrated culinary achievement of the universe.

A hyperbole, perhaps, but in my opinion, one of life's greatest simple pleasures is biting into a warm, gooey, chewy (vegan) cookie, accompanied by wafting aromas of freshly warmed carbs

Ahh. So lovely.

The only problem with making cookies in my life is that for one, I live alone and if I bake a whole batch I will probably eat them all within 24 hours and fill icky. Secondly, I just love cookies to an exponentially greater extent when they are fresh.

Solution: making just two chocolate chip cookies. This single serving vegan chocolate chip recipe lets you have that pleasure of melty, delicious goodness and scrumptious smells on the reg. They happen to be vegan, too, if that's your jam.  

You can add oats for extra chew, or go the OG route and substitute for more flour. But get excited; it's cookie time!
