1/2 cup dairy-free butter (I used Smart Balance Extra Virgin Olive Oil Butter Spread)
3/4 cup light brown sugar or date sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or cinnamon
1 tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon sea salt or Himalayan salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup Enjoy Life's semi-sweet chocolate mini chips
Preheat your oven to 375 F
Add butter to a large mixing bowl with brown sugar, then mix to combine.
Add vanilla, egg, and water. Mix for 1-2 minutes, until all ingredients are dissolved and mixed together.
In a separate bowl, add the salt, baking soda, and flour, then whisk to combine. Add slowly to the liquid ingredients and mix to form a very soft dough/ thick batter. (This consistency will allow the cookies to spread in the oven and develop a soft and chewy texture).
Mix in the chocolate chips.
Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray and line the dough in rounded tablespoon dollops. Bake for 8 minutes, until the edges are lightly brown.
Cool on pan for 1 to 2 minutes until the cookie sets, then transfer to a cooling rack.
