Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Just because it’s vegan, doesn’t mean it’s low-calorie. Luckily, ION isn’t a low-calorie restaurant. We’re a vegan restaurant that values high quality ingredients, natural foods, and everything in moderation - including a delicious chocolate chip cookie every now and then.

Our menu is practically overflowing with vegetables, beans, whole grains and other nutritional powerhouses, because we value our health and that of our customers. But life is about living, 

Among our favorite treats are these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies made with natural cane sugar, whole wheat flour, rolled oats, and the best dark chocolate we can get our hands on. While we love them fresh from the oven, vegan cookie dough is safe to eat raw, so don’t be afraid to sneak a taste!
