I decided the perfect vegan chocolate chip cookie had to be just like Mom's was- chewy, soft, not too sweet, and with a hint of crunch along the edges. These cookies match that. I've fooled plenty of people into thinking they're just plain ol' chocolate chippers...and they are, only considerably healthier!
