Me Like Cookies

I am a big fan of Cookie Monster, seriously how could you not like a Cookie Loving Monster?

This recipe is one I found a few years ago when I was looking for a Vegan Cookie recipe. I liked to bake and send cookies with Hubby to the Lab he worked in and there was a girl he worked with who was from India, she is a Vegan. So whenever I sent in treats I would have Hubby calling me asking what was in them because she wanted to eat them but wasn't sure if they met her dietary requirements. This girl is also a big fan of chocolate, so I went online and googled chocolate vegan recipes. I found this recipe- Chewy Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies. I baked up a batch of them and a batch of regular chocolate chip cookies and sent them to work with Hubby. He told me that the Vegan ones disappeared almost as a soon as he set them out, they were the favorite hands down.

This is probably my families favorite cookie and we make them pretty often. I like to make them without the chocolate chips in them, but everyone else here always out-votes me. We have made them with reg. chocolate chips, white and peanut butter ones. The first pkg of chips I grabbed today happened to be Peanut Butter Chips so that's what I went with.
So, being Vegan, these are completely egg and dairy free- no animal products. The cookie is a dense, chewy, brownie like cookie. Be careful not to over-bake these.

Chewy Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4c. canola oil (I use olive oil)
2c. sugar
2t. vanilla

1T + 1t. ground flax seed
1/2c. soy milk (If don't care about them being non-vegan you can use reg. milk)

2c. flour
3/4. c. cocoa powder
1t. baking soda
1/2t. salt
1c. chocolate chips

Oven 350.

Blend together the flax seed and milk, set aside. Beat together the sugar and oil, add in the flax/milk, stir, add in the vanilla.

Beat in the cocoa powder, then the salt and baking soda. Stir in the flour, it makes a pretty stiff dough. Stir in your chocolate chips. Place by spoonful onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake for exactly 10 min.

never thought of vegan and sweet things; knew it about meat, egg, etc but didn't equate it with cookies. you were very considerate to look for a recipe to accommodate everyone your hubby works wtih

and the cookies look delicious!!!

I've never had this cookie but I bet I'd like them without the chips in there too. I always look forward to the very last cookie of the batch that's all dough and no chunky stuff. mmm.

Although, mint chocolate chips would be nice in here too!

Very thoughtful of you to make these cookies for her to enjoy too.

Thank you!!!
