Ingredients:

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) vegan butter
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg substitute (or a flax egg)
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable milk
  • About 3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips or chopped chocolate (combination of an almond chocolate bar and dark chocolate chips recommended)

Directions:

  1. Brown the butter:
    • In a skillet over medium heat, melt the vegan butter. Continue heating until it begins to bubble and stir continuously until the butter begins to brown and develop a nutty aroma. Remove from heat and let cool completely.
  2. Prepare the cookie dough:
    • Once the browned butter has cooled, preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    • In a large bowl, combine the cooled brown butter with the brown sugar and brown sugar. Stir in egg replacer and vanilla extract until well combined.
    • Whisk together flour, salt and baking soda in another bowl. Gradually add it to the wet ingredients, mixing until everything is well combined.
    • Add the vegetable milk, then gently add the chocolate chips and chopped chocolate.
  3. Bake the cookies:
    • Scoop out about 1 tablespoon of dough for each cookie and place them on the prepared baking sheet, making sure they are spaced apart to allow for spreading.
    • Bake for 10 to 11 minutes, or until the edges are just set but the center is still soft.
  4. Cooling:
    • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy these gourmet vegan brown butter and chocolate chip cookies, a simple yet sophisticated treat that combines the joys of baking with the pleasures of indulgence!
