Jan Andrea's Note:
A friend posted this in her LiveJournal, and even though our family isn't vegan, I still love to make these because they taste so good, and I don't have to worry about having fresh eggs, milk, butter, etc. on hand in quantity. Makes between 3 to 4 dozen, depending on how large you make them; I tend to get 42 2.5" cookies. Cooking time is for the whole batch, assuming 24 cookies per sheet; if you make larger cookies and get only 18 per sheet, add another 10 minutes.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup unsweetened Dutch-processed cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup canola oil
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 4 teaspoons ground flax seeds
- 1/2 cup soymilk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup semisweet vegan chocolate chips (or non-vegan, if you're not a vegan)
- 3/4 cup walnuts (optional)
- 1Preaheat the oven to 350.
- 2In a large boak, sift together flour, baking cocoa, baking soda, and salt.
- 3In a separate bowl, mix oil and sugar. Add ground flaxseeds, soy milk (I like chocolate soy milk for extra chocolatiness!), and vanilla extracts. Mix well.
- 4Fold in the flour mixture in batches until a stiff dough forms. I use my stand mixer, but the original recipe recommends mixing with your hands. Do what you like :).
- 5Add chocolate chips and/or walnuts to finished dough.
- 6Roll the cookies into 1" balls and flatten into disks about 1.5" in diameter -- or shape with two spoons, if you don't want to get your hands into it. The oil content makes them pretty easy to shape by hand, though.
- 7Place on parchment-lined cookie sheets about 1" apart -- they don't spread out very much. If you don't like parchment or don't have any on hand, spray with your favorite non-stick spray, or just grease the pan with margarine or (for non-vegans) butter. I just use butter and it comes out fine.
- 8Bake for 10 minutes.
- 9Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely, so that their shape stays nice and circular.
- 10Enjoy, while marveling that the taste is SO good, you'd never guess it's vegan!
