Ultimate Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ultimate Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here I sit, amid the Covid-19 pandemic, with lots of spare time at home and a deep desire to be more productive than should be necessary of anyone on house-arrest. In a recent post on Instagram, my good friend Joyce challenged me to a healthy cookie contest, so this is in answer to that challenge. Perhaps we can turn this up a notch and inspire you to share your healthy cookie recipe? Without further ado, I present these dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan chocolate chip cookies made with Seedy Nutty. Enjoy these fantastic cookies for breakfast, mid-afternoon, and after-dinner treat!

How to Make Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Step One: Get Seedy Nutty

Order Seedy Nutty from Bee Inspired online. When you buy Seedy Nutty you get an amazing snack treat and you're helping at-risk youth in an underserved community in Baltimore.

Step Two: Gather your Ingredients

Preheat the oven to 350F and gather your ingredients. You will need gluten-free flour, coconut sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, kosher salt ground flaxseeds, warm water, coconut oil, your favorite Nut Milk, date syrup, or (if you don’t have that molasses will work great with this recipe), vanilla extract, gluten-free old-fashioned oats, seedy nutty original flavor, vegan chocolate chips

Step Three: Make flax eggs

This replaces one egg. Combine one tablespoon of ground flax seeds and three tablespoons of warm water. Whisk the mixture together and refrigerate. Remove from the refrigerator and whisk for another minute or so. When the mixture becomes gelatinous, you’re all done.

Step Four: Make the Batter

Measure and mix and the dry ingredients together. Measure and mix the wet ingredients together, sift the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.

Step Five: Finish the cookie dough

Fold the chunky ingredients into the batter and in drop-cookie style measure out one tablespoon of cookie dough leaving 2 inches in-between.

Maybe you aren't interested in gluten-free living? Use flour with gluten. If you aren't vegan, it's easy enough to use whole milk and butter in place of the nut milk and the coconut oil. A farm-fresh egg replaces the one we made of flax. Honey can replace the coconut sugar and the date syrup. Whatever you wish, this recipe has the bones and it's very forgiving. I have added unsweetened toasted coconut flakes to a recent batch and it added a nice texture and flavor.

These cookies store well in the freezer. They have come in handy each night after dinner and mostly guilt-free.
