Sometimes you want a crunch and sometimes you want a chew! This recipe is for those chewy days, days when you want to linger over a cookie whilst mulling over an interesting concept. I’d like to think of this as the intellectual cookie, the one to hand out during a deep discussion. Well, maybe that’s overdoing it a bit, but its a cookie that will make everything seem right with the world and give you a great bit bear hug of comfort! They also keep and travel well, so are perfect for this current picnic season and some will definitely be coming along to sports day with us.

Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies (dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, can be soya-free, sesame-free, vegetarian and vegan)

– Roll into walnut sized balls, place well apart on the baking sheets and press down slightly.

Welcome. I'm a Cordon Bleu trained chef and mother with a passion for cooking vegetarian food. All recipes featured here are dairy, egg, and nut-free, thus 'accidentally' vegan, as my children are allergic to those. My aim is to recreate any dish, even what seems impossible, but free of the ingredients we can't have, and log my exploits here. Please browse what is now several hundred recipes. All the recipes posted (unless stated) are my own creations.

  1. These look yummy, but is there cocoa missing? The cookies are called ‘double chocolate’ but I only see choc chips in the recipe! They look too chocolate-y to have no cocoa in them.
