Besties, Cookies & Accidentally Vegan Chips


I came into this month of Vegan Food Writing with the intention of working on and posting recipes, telling stories, maybe explaining the origin of tempeh in Indonesia, writing about my favorite vegan-related places in Portland... and in actuality I've been posting like I always do, just with increased frequency.  I'm obviously comfortable with my conversational style and everyday photo postings, and can only assume a few people reading this are as well.  Maybe.

I have no real problems with that so far, but there will be 6 more Get Sconed! posts this month, and thanks for hopefully staying tuned!

Today, I'd like to again declare my devotion to the the Post Punk Kitchen's Chewy Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I've been making these cookies since my Pre-Portland and forum days, and it's still my go-to cookie.  The recipe is published on the PPK recipe database here, and an updated version was included in Veganomican with less sugar and liquid.  They're the besties.

This past weekend, I made a batch as a vehicle for vegan white chocolate chips to bring to a friend's brunch.  

 Chewy Chocolate Chocolate Chip with White Chocolate Chips!

The white chocolate chips are Oppenheimer brand Kosher chips, and were purchased at Food Fight! - You can buy them online as well.  I had a bag presented to me for my birthday, and have a bag waiting at home for over a month now that I've promised to Erica of littlepretty etsy wonder.  I'm getting on it! 
I'm notoriously slow at mailing, as a certain Broke Ass Vegan knows! <3

You can also buy vegan white chocolate chips from Pangea.  I tried them years ago and like these accidentally vegan Kosher ones more, plus I can walk to Food Fight! from my apartment and not pay shipping...

Kosher Accidentally Vegan White Chocolate Chips


Over the summer, I made these bad boys to bring to the 
PPK Gathering.  
It was only appropriate.

Chewy Chocolate Chocolate Vegan Butterscotch Chip!

In case you missed out on the news, Price Chopper carries accidentally vegan butterscotch chips. They totally taste like little nips of sweet Earth Balance.  That's a good thing.

I am insanely jealous of your various chips!

allicia said...

It was totally worth the wait for your package. :o)

This post makes me really want to make cookies, but I know if I do I will eat them all. Especially that recipe. I've been using it since before I was a ppker as well. I wish I had more friends to share them with.

This is the only kind of white chocolate chips we have in Israel. It's in every store, so I was amused to see it presented as a special product here :)
The cookies look great.

Price Chopper, my savior! I've been whining to myself how I don't know where to get vegan chips around here besides chocolate - thanks, Jess! So here's a fun anecdote: I was a cashier at Price Chopper for a year during college. Customer service = not my forte.

I need to make those cookies. They really look perfect.

is price chopper a west coast thing? we have kroger's in the midwest and their price cutter chips are vegan but i haven't been able to find accidentally vegan butterscotch or white cho chips.

jess (of Get Sconed!) said...

Sorry guys - Price Chopper is not a West Coast chain. I've had a couple friends gift me with them from the East Coast. Check out the website for locations!
