I’m absolutely obsessed with sweet and savory desserts, and I am always looking for new ways to feed my sweet and salty addiction. When I came across this non-vegan recipe I knew I needed to try my hand at making it vegan. I have to say this might be my all-time favorite cookie recipe. I’d even go so far as to say this is the best vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe ever. The cookies came out perfectly soft yet crunchy, and they spread like a dream, which can be a challenge for many vegan cookie recipes. I guarantee you no one will ever assume these cookies are vegan, because they taste rich and buttery without the dairy! This recipe is no-fail and super easy to throw together without any fancy ingredients.
I mixed some the broken pretzels into the batter and then topped each of the cookies with a full pretzel. You’ll want to give the dough a little firm press to make sure they fully spread in the oven. If you don’t have sea salt flakes, don’t worry, you can definitely use a pinch of regular sea salt on top for the same flavor profile!
