I get a lot of requests from family and friends to make these cookies. Today (Friday, I’m running behind!) my husband suggested that we make them. I think there’s no better time to indulge than a snowy weekend so why not?
We’re enjoying a very unexpected long weekend here. The hubby and I had our first snow days of the year on Thursday and Friday. Woohoo! Perks of having a June baby, I probably won’t be making up these days!
Pregnancy + snow day = lots of baking.
I currently have a cake in the oven because the baby is craving cake and I don’t want to deprive my son, but let’s talk cookies. These chocolate chip cookies are vegany deliciousness. Simple, easy, and a crowd pleaser. Best of all y0u probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen right now!
- 1/2 cup melted vegan butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 2 flax eggs (1 tablespoon flaxseed meal + 3 tablespoons water = 1 egg)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 bag vegan chocolate chips
- 2 1/4 cup of flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 cup of water
Ok maybe you don’t have vegan chocolate chips in your pantry right now, but they’re not too hard to find. You can usually pick some up in the earthy crunch section of your local grocery store.
In a separate bowl, stir together your flax seed and water. Set aside. While your flax eggs are setting whisk your salt, baking soda, and flour together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl mix together your sugars, melted butter, vanilla extract and flax eggs. Slowly pour in your wet ingredients into your dry mixture and stir together. Add in the half a cup of water. Fold in your chocolate chips.
Have your oven preheated to 375 degrees. I scooped out my cookie dough with and ice cream soup and spread my cookies about two inches apart on my cookie sheet. I covered my pan with aluminum foil because I have a cheap cookie sheet and I was afraid they would stick. I cooked my cookies for about 25 minutes.
One of the best parts about making vegan cookies…the cookie dough is totally up for grabs since there no raw egg! Happy baking.
