Chocolate not only tastes amazing, but it is also good for your health! We’re not kidding; chocolate has been found to be good for your heart, brain, and can help you manage your weight. Chocolate is also a good source of several key minerals (most notably magnesium), and is high in heart-healthy and cancer-fighting antioxidants.


Of course, like with all good things, it’s important to strike a balance and manage your consumption to reap the maximum benefits. You are far more likely obtain benefits from chocolate when you eat it in smaller amounts.  We’ve got the solution — have it in actual small little chunks. Yes, you guessed it…Chocolate Chips!

Chocolate chips were invented by Ruth Wakefield in 1930, at the Toll House inn neat Whitman, Massachusetts. She got the idea when she was trying to make chocolate cookies and broke up a bars of semi-sweet chocolate that Andrew Nestlé gave her. She expected the chocolate to mix together with the dough, but that didn’t happen. Instead, the chocolate crunch cookie was born! The cookies were a huge success, and Wakefield reached an agreement in 1939 with Nestlé to add her recipe to the chocolate bar’s packaging in exchange for a lifetime supply of chocolate. The Nestlé brand Toll House cookies is named for Ruth Wakefield’s Inn.

But chocolate chips don’t have to be limited to cookies. They can be used in everything from, pancakes, waffles, cakes, pudding, muffins, crêpes, and pies, to granola bars, ice cream, and trail mix! The possibilities are nearly endless. Here are 10 amazing vegan recipes to get you started.
