Soft, Golden, and Oh-So-Peanut Buttery Chocolate Chip Cookies {vegan}

If you want seriously delicious and vegan peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, then this is the recipe for you! We've adapted a recipe from Isa Chandra Moskowitz (so you already know it's gonna be good) to make the cookies a little lighter and softer with additional chocolate chips. You'll level up your cookie game with this recipe, no doubt.An interesting thing has happened during this pandemic. Caitlin and I realized, separately, that we prefer our own baked goods over store/bakery-bought. With the exception of cake. Bakeries always pump out a polished and impressive cake. But I was particularly happy to realize this because I get intense anxiety around going grocery shopping or either picking up takeout because our mom is extremely vulnerable. I'm sure I'm not alone in having such feelings, whether you live with someone with compromised health or not. So knowing we can make some darn tasty treats that our tastebuds prefer, brings a little comfort in these hard times.How have you been doing mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually, etc. during this pandemic? We hope you and your loved ones are all safe and healthy.Soft and Golden Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies adapted from Post Punk Kitchen Ingredients6 tbsp coconut oil softened at room temperature6 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
