The Best Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

The Best Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are my new favorite cookies!

Even though I absolutely love the other chocolate chips cookies I make, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, I still felt like I wanted something a little closer to a what my son loves about a chocolate chip cookie.  I found this recipe and knew it was the one I was looking for!  With just a few changes, this might be the new favorite cookie in the house.  The added texture and butteriness (that’s a word right?) gives this wonderfully chewy cookie that “it” factor.  I am in LOVE!

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp organic golden flaxseed meal
  • 3 tbsp filtered water
  • 5 tbsp Soy Free Earth Balance
  • 2 tbsp organic coconut oil
  • 1/4cup + 2tbsp organic brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup organic coconut palm sugar
  • 1 tsp organic vanilla extract
  • 1 cup gluten free rolled oats (or gluten free oat flour)
  • 1/4 cup organic golden flaxseed meal
  • 3/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Almond Meal
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp organic ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup organic semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  In a small bowl, mix together 1 tbsp flaxseed meal with 3 tbsp of filtered water and place in fridge to set about 5-10 minutes. It will be thick when set.
