I’ve been enlightened to the world of vegan baking. Two sweet gals, Joy and Jenn, have handed me more than a few vegan sweet treats that really rocked my world. Thus, I was motivated to see if I could return the favor. I found a brilliant cookie recipe from Steph Chows. The results: a nutty, sweet, chewy, cookie with a melted chocolate center…a vegan miracle. I’m still amazed by vegan baking, and consider it a kitchen miracle when I cook up something that is not bad for me and also delicious. This cookie could quite possibly be one of my favorite cookies.
These Vegan Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies are easy to love.
- 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3/4 cup almond butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons flaxseed meal
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1 bar of your favorite chocolate broken into 20 1/2 inch pieces
In a small bowl mix the flax meal and water.
In a mixer, cream the almond butter and brown sugar.
Whisk the other dry ingredients: whole wheat flour, baking soda, and cinnamon.
Add flax mixture to almond/sugar mixture, then add in dry ingedients. Mix until incorporated. Using your hands grab off 1" size balls and stuff a hunk of dark choclate into the center of each, roll into balls and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes
Enjoy with a glass of almond milk!
