Hi friends! The past two weeks have been a whirlwind of wedding and honeymoon fun and I’m very happy to be back today with a new recipe. Ok, maybe I’m a little sad that the honeymoon is over but still totally pumped about today’s cookies!
If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you may have seen a few photos I posted of our wedding…words cannot describe how beautiful the day was! I’m looking forward to posting a wedding recap (double chocolate cake!) once we get all the photos back but for now here’s a peek at the magical day…
And speaking of magical, let’s move on to today’s new recipe, Classic Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies!!
About a week before the wedding, when things were pretty hectic around here, I had a craving for really good, childhood-style chocolate chip cookies. I came up with this super buttery, soft and fluffy recipe that’s reminiscent of the cookie batter tube cookies I ate as a kid (but with much better ingredients).
The best part? The smell of these little babies baking in the oven! Also, bring them to your next potluck and I guarantee you’ll get a ton of “I can’t believe these are vegan!”
- 1 tbs ground flaxseed
- 3 tbs warm water
- 2 cups spelt flour
- ⅔ cup coconut sugar
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ⅛ tsp salt
- ⅔ cup vegan butter or coconut oil, softened
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ cup non-dairy milk
- vegan chocolate chips (as many as you want!)
- Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a baking sheet.
- Prepare flax "egg" by stirring together flax and water in a small bowl or cup. Let sit 10 minutes before using.
- In a large bowl, whisk together flour, coconut sugar, baking soda and salt.
- In a small bowl, stir together butter, vanilla, milk and the flax "egg".
- Add contents of small bowl to large and mix until thoroughly combined (can use electric mixer). Fold in as many chocolate chips as desired.
- Scoop a little more than 1 tablespoon of batter onto baking sheet for each cookie. Use your hand to slightly flatten each scoop of batter.
- Bake for 11-13 minutes, until edges are lightly golden. Let cool for a few minutes before enjoying.
