Chewy Chocolate Chunk Lactation Cookies {vegan}

We had a new little person join our extended family recently! My younger brother became a daddy for the first time, which makes me the doting aunt, and I am dying to meet her, but alas, they live interstate. So, we made up a care package, filled with the cutest little baby girl clothes, a…
