CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE?
It’s hard to escape this reality. For those who don’t want to eat dairy or animal, it becomes even more challenging. However, I do have a great, easy recipe for a VEGAN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE that tastes just like grandma used to make!
VEGAN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar (you can also use organic raw)
2/3 cup canola oil
1/4 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk (the coconut gives it a wonderful flavor)
1 tablespoon tapioca flour
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
LET’S GET STARTED!
Preheat oven to 350 and lightly grease your baking sheet with earth balance.
Combine sugars, oil, almond or coconut milk and tapioca flour in a mixing bowl. Mix really well for about 2 minutes, until the mixture is smooth, almost like the consistency of caramel. Next, mix in the vanilla.
Add 1 cup of the flour, the baking soda, and the salt. Mix until well-incorporated, and then add in the rest of the flour. Fold in the chocolate chips and pecans and mix.
Roll the dough into balls and then flatten them out in your hands to about 2 1/2 inches. Place on the greased baking sheet and bake for approximately 8 minutes until they are lightly browned around the edges. Once in the oven, the balls will spread a little.
Let cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes, and then transfer to cooling racks.
They’re great with warmed vanilla flavored almond milk!
*Note: When possible I always use organic ingredients.
