Chocolate Chip Cookies

February 27, 2017

No blog is complete without a chocolate chip cookie recipe. This is unwritten fact. Everyone has their own way of baking the beloved favorite cookie, and I am no different. While the chocolate chip is not my favorite sweet treat, I most certainly have worked hard to perfect a recipe I can call my own, and I so hope that you can call it yours as well!

 

A few things to note:

- Not everyone likes coconut oil, but it's still better for the bod than butter. If the flavor isn't your style, grab the refined kind and you'll have no problem.

- It's important that, whichever kind you use, the coconut oil is solidified so that it "creams" with the brown sugar.

- Not all chocolate chips are vegan, and feel free to get creative. I ran out of chips so I grabbed a chocolate bar and hacked away at it, hence the chunk-looking cookies in this post instead of chip.

- Many people are surprised I don't do apple sauce in my cookies. While a common choice for lower calorie vegan noms, they tend to leave baked good dry and crumbly in my opinion. I want the gooey. BRING ON THE GOO!

 

Alright, let's do this.

 

 

Chocolate chip cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup brown sugar (yup. We’re starting off like that.)

  • ½ cup coconut oil (refined, if you don’t like coconut flavor)

  • ¼ cup nondairy milk

  • 1.5 T vanilla extract

  • 2 cups flour (all purpose, but you can mix GF flours as well)

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • ½ tsp salt

  • ¾ -1.5 cups chocolate chips (depends on how chocolately you like your cookies)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F degrees.

By hand or with a mixer, cream together brown sugar and oil. Add the nondairy milk and vanilla. The mixture will look a little odd and maybe clumpy. That's okay, as long as you get most of the giant chunks of oil worked down.

 

Mix the next 4 ingredients in a separate bowl. Slowly pour in the dry ingredients to the wet.

Have a taste. It'll be amazing. Have a couple more tastes.

Stop it, you're eating all the batter!

Fold in chocolate chips and/or any nuts or seeds you fancy.

Roll 1T of dough at a time into a ball and place on cookie sheet (ungreased/silpat). Press down with palm.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Eat them all before anyone else has a chance at them.
