They were chewy, sweet, and chocolaty. They had vegan butter and coconut oil as well as dairy-free chocolate chips. And they were not only delicious, but they were also irresistible.
My family could taste the coconut, although I could not. They did not enjoy the cookies as much as I did. But I could not stop eating them. In fact, I think I was the only one who loved them.
The recipe they came from was not designated as dairy-free. I substituted the regular butter with what I’d listed together. The texture came out like a cross between a brownie and a cookie.
If you cannot have dairy or anything else, sometimes you can grab a recipe and substitute the ingredient with something you can eat. Sometimes that method works. However, there are moments when they do not, whether it’s taste or texture. Still, it doesn’t hurt to experiment.
