The best cookies I've ever eaten were vegan chocolate chip cookies. This right, you read that right—vegan! And I'm not even vegan. I was pleasantly surprised with the taste because they tasted so similar to the cookie I'm used to but better. 

This vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe uses chips that offer a unique flavor. They are made with SunSpire Vegan Carob Chips. However, there are many vegan chocolate chips to choose from.

Carob comes from a carob tree, which grows basically fruit pods. That're described as a brown pea pod. Carob is often used as a healthy chocolate alternative. It also has many health benefits and is used frequently to help people with high cholesterol, heartburn, and for treating obesity

The carob chips look exactly like chocolate chips, but they taste quite unique. They're sweet and gooey like traditional chocolate chips, but carob is different than chocolate. I would describe it as having a nuttier flavor, but I know many who think it tastes similar to chocolate.
