Vegan Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

Dessert, Vegan

These Vegan Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies are a healthy dessert that you will enjoy making as much as you will enjoy eating.  I used some tasty, non-dairy chocolate chips and crushed pecans, along with some other key ingredients in making these cookies.  The cookies were light, crunchy and delicious!

I can find all of my baking ingredients from Whole Foods MarketWegmans and Sprouts Farmers Market.  They have an excellent assortment.

-Then place them on a lined baking sheet with parchment paper.  Make sure to spread them evenly.  Gently push down a little and top with the leftover pecans and chocolate.
-Put in the the oven for 8-10 minutes or according to your oven.  They may still look soft and gooey in the middle.  Don’t leave them in to long.  Once removed grim the oven, they will cook further when cooling and give that perfect texture.  Enjoy!
