Vegan Hot Cocoa Cookies

Sweet, delicious, chocolate indulgence. Who said vegans can’t have cookies?

Baking has always been a fun experiment for me. I love to try substituting all kinds of ingredients, playing with different combinations of mix-ins, and obviously recreating old favorites into vegan-friendly deliciousness.

Ingredients:

1 cup vegan butter (Earth Balance Organic).
1 cup brown sugar.
1/2 cup granulated sugar.
2 teaspoons vanilla.
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.
1 teaspoon salt.
1 teaspoon baking soda.
3 tablespoons (ground/milled) flaxseed.
6 tablespoons water.
2 cups flour.
1/2 cup dark cocoa powder.
1/4 powdered sugar.*

*optional.

Steps:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine flax and water, set aside. (Typical flax egg ratio is 1:3, this recipes uses just a little bit extra flax with a 1:2).
  3. Cream together vegan butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla.
  4. Add flax eggs to butter mixture and mix thoroughly.
  5. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl and slowly mix together.
  6. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes.
  7. Spread your cookies out on a cooling rack and use a sifter to sprinkle over top.

Yum!
