These vegan chocolate cookies taste just as good as the original. They’re gluten-free too!
What does a little black dress and a chocolate chip cookie have in common? They’re both classics — and you can never have just one! But even a classic needs redefining, and chocolate cookies are no exception.
These vegan chocolate cookies taste just as good as the original. The only difference? The ingredients. Instead of dairy products, like eggs and butter, these vegan chocolate cookies (which just so happen to be gluten-free) are made from plant-based ingredients.
You also get the added benefits of superfoods and plant-based protein, specifically rice protein, pea protein, maca, lucuma, and banana from the Plant Protein mix.
