Double Chocolate Chip Drop Cookies (Cane Sugar Free, Dairy Free & Vegan)

Here’s a rich bite size chocolate chip cookie for your sweet tooth. It will satisfy  your tummy at just the right time–late morning snack, afternoon craving, dessert after dinner…you name it. And yet these cookies are not overly, uber sweet. If you’ve got a real sweet tooth, I would recommend adding a pinch more sweetener to the recipe as the cacao powder is simply pure raw chocolate. Cacao is an incredible source of antioxidants and magnesium, but can be bitter tasting by itself.

The good thing is the batter is vegan so taste it before you bake it and if you want to add a touch more sweetener or perhaps vanilla stevia to it, go right ahead!

    I’m just finishing up a month long sugar/gluten detox. These are the perfect thing to satisfy my sweet tooth!

    Yum, yum, Laura.  Love the ingredients.  How did you know I was craving some chocolate (which is sort of rare).  I have the post-lunch sweet-tooth going on right now.  🙂

  4. Usha Prasadh says

    We are allergic to coconut as well (in addition to celiac, dairy allergy, nut allergy and cane sugar sensitivity). What can we use instead?

  5. I’m looking for chocolate chips with no dairy or cane sugar, would anyone know if this even something available.
