London Vegan Bird Food: White Chocolate Chip Cookies

IMG_2095

What’s more satisfying than cookies and a glass of (plant based) milk?  This recipe is from the 100 Best Vegan Baking Recipes by Kris Holechek and I’m not afraid to say these are the best cookies I’ve ever had. Feel free to swap out the white chocolate buttons for dark chocolate chips which I’m sure will be equally as delicious.
