How do you make chocolate chip cookies?

Well, by now I’m sure a huge amount of you have been making Liv’s famous chocolate chip cookies from her First Cookbook for some time. This has all the same steps that give you the chewy-on-the-inside, crunchy-on-the-outside cookie you know and love. Of course you know I love to level up even some of the greatest recipes! For these Vegan Oreo Chocolate Chip Cookies, the only difference I made was to add crushed Oreos into the hand mixer at the end. If you know me, you know I’m all about efficiency, flavor and taste in the kitchen, and this hits both of those targets right on the money! Let me show you how it’s done!

What ingredients do you use in Oreo chocolate chip cookies?

The first thing to do is mix and combine all the dry ingredients. use all your favourite brands and quality of ingredients when It comes to this part – but as there are more and more vegan baking brands popping up all the time, for consistency I always recommend what I use. Becel vegan butter sticks are some of my favourite. Robin Hood all purpose flour has never let me dow. And the presidents choice brand semi sweet chocolate chips being accidentally vegan are always my go-to.

… next you only need to mix the wet ingredients and pour it into the dry powder ingredients. Into a large mixing bowl of a stand mixer, add the ingredients listed below. They key flavor ingredients in this cookie dough recipe are the brown sugar, almond milk or oat milk, oil like coconut oil, dark chocolate chips, and a couple of teaspoons vanilla extract. Once combined into a dough, add the crushed Oreos.

… Lastly all that’s left is to form them into cookie dough balls for baking with a large cookie scoop! Now, here’s where you can have some fun with them. In the past, I’ve actually made these into a giant form of this cookie for my Hawaiian Black Salt Caramel Cookies. So if you prefer a giant cookie, roll 5 Tbsp of the dough into a ball before baking. If not, the standard 2 Tbsp is perfect for that chewy interior you know you love.

You can either store these edible cookie dough balls in an airtight container to freeze, or fold parchment paper onto  baking sheets or trays before setting into the oven to bake to golden brown perfection. However you enjoy your cookies – baked or raw, this is the perfect easy cookie dough recipe for you!
