vegan recipe…a little too good | choco chip cookies

WARNING:  These cookies are dangerous!!! And, this recipe makes a LOT of them [48 to be exact]. They disappeared in my house way too quickly!!!  At first, I wasn’t too sure about the coconut oil flavor, but it “grew” on me and once I had one bite, I had to have at least 2 cookies!

You can make these vegan or NOT. You can do it any way you’d like!  It’s totally up to you!  [We did not make them vegan and they are still delicious!]

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups evaporated cane sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups refined coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup ice water
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1/2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 (10- to 12-ounce) package vegan chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional…but grand)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 F.  Line baking sheets with parchment.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, combine the sugar and coconut oil, mixing on medium-high speed until creamy, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the water, molasses, and vanilla, mixing until well combined.
  • With the mixer on low speed, add the flour mixture in 3 to 4 additions, mixing each additional until almost fully incorporated.
  • Add in the chocolate chips and the walnuts, if using, mixing until just combined.
  • Arrange 2 Tablespoon sized balls of cookie dough 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, until the edges are slightly browned and the centers are set.
  • Thoroughly cool on a cooling rack.
