Wonderful Vegan Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are brownie-like and chewy. Be careful not to overbake them, they may seem like they aren't done after 10 minutes but they are!


You’ll Need:


  • 3⁄4 cup canola oil
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon flax seed, plus
  • 1 teaspoon flax seed
  • 1⁄2 cup soymilk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3⁄4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1⁄2 cups semisweet vegan chocolate chips (obviously, vegan chocolate chips if you want these to be vegan)


Instructions:


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Grind flax seeds in a blender until they become a fine powder, then add the soy milk and blend for about 30 seconds more and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, sift together cocoa, flour, baking soda and salt.
  4. Cream the sugar and oil in a separate large bowl.
  5. Add the flax/soy milk mixture and mix well.
  6. Stir in the vanilla.
  7. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients (the original recipe does not call for a mixer, but you may want to use yours.).
  8. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  9. Roll dough into 1" balls and flatten into disks about 1 1/2" in diameter.
  10. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 1" apart and bake for 10 minutes.
  11. Let rest on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes, then remove with a spatula to a cooling rack and cool completely.


NOTES:


  • **For chocolate chocolate chip cherry cookies, replace 1 teaspoon of the vanilla with almond extract, and use 3/4 cup chocolate chips and 3/4 cup chopped cherries.
  • ***For chocolate nut cookies, replace 1 teaspoon of the vanilla with a nut extract (almond, walnut, etc) and replace the chocolate chips with 1 1/2 cups chopped nuts of your choice.
