I have been battling a serious sweet tooth, which has me eating pasta and craving sweets...so I found a recipe that I thought I would try....let's just say I have made them twice now...
like having the most sparkly, magical, decedent, wonderful thing
sitting on your kitchen counter!
I have been searching for an easy go to dessert to make when fruit or frozen banana "ice cream" just won't cut it.
I tried a faux cheese cake and used like $15 in nuts and it just gave me a stomach ache....
then I found a recipe on Hell Yeah it's vegan and...
JUST MAKE THEM!!!
You'll never know they were vegan....really, honest, truly...for reals!

In a small bowl, sift together flours, cocoa, spices, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. 5. Beat flour mixture into sugar mixture. The dough will be stiff. 6. Fold in chocolate chips. 7.

Allow to cool on cookie sheet 2-3 minutes before transferring to cooling racks or counter. 9. Best enjoyed warm.
Notes I bake mine for the minimum time because I love softbaked centers; the longer time will yield crunchier cookies. Recipe by Hell Yeah It's Vegan!
