Before I start anything, I must say that the marshmallows and chocolate chunks in this recipe ARE NOT vegan. They were what I had in the house so I used them. The cookie batter base IS vegan, which I think is the most important part anyways. If you are on a vegan diet, for whatever reason, you will need to find vegan certified chocolate, or other fillings that you wish to include. And really, whatever diet you follow, these are to die for!
I made these with coconut oil, and I was happy with the result. No, it doesn’t have the same “OMG” effect that butter gives, but it gives a nice, subtle hint of coconut. I use coconut oil in almost all my cooking, and I love it. It keeps me full longer than your average olive oil and it is perfect as a conditioner and moisturizer, too! Super food?
I modified the recipe from Cookie Madness.
