my favorite plant-based chocolate chip cookies

by Jackie Newgent  |  December 21, 2020  |  4 Comments
I’ve shared so, so, so, soooo many of my recipes throughout my cookbooks, food company projects, social media, and this blog; but my favorite plant-based chocolate chip cookies recipe is one that I’ve been holding on to for some reason. Until now! I figure whipping up a batch of comforting cookies is at least one tiny way to end the year on a bit of a sweet note after a year that was … in food terms … rancid and rotten. So here you go!

fudgy miso brownies with sea salt

All the way from Ireland, my friend John sent me a recipe for salted miso brownies to try. Of course, I needed to Americanize the recipe measurements … because that’s still what we do here in the states. And, I added my own twists … because that’s what I do.

Occasionally I cheat … on cupcakes, that is! When it’s just me, I’ve been known to frost healthy muffins and pass them off as cupcakes. It totally works for my tastebuds! Though, I’ve never tried this trick out on anyone else … at least yet! But please be my guest and use this vegan (Meatless Monday-friendly!) frosting any way you wish, even if you just prefer going the traditional route by frosting cake or cupcakes. The flavor is a hint fruity, which actually makes it quite versatile. Its pink hue comes naturally by way of pomegranate juice reduction. And since “Naturally Colored Holiday Treats and Trimmings” is the Recipe Redux theme this month, it’s a perfect time to share this...
