Most of my posts are focused on healthy foods. But, we all need a little luxury in our lives. These are luxurious.
Chocolate-Chocolate Chip-Walnut Cookies:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup unsweetened Dutch-processed cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2/3 cup canola oil
1 ½ cups sugar
4 teaspoons ground flaxseeds
½ cup soy milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
½ teaspoons almond extract
¾ cup vegan chocolate chips
¾ cup walnuts, chopped small (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.
In a separate large bowl, mix together the oil and sugar. Add the flaxseeds, soy milk, and vanilla, and mix well.
Fold in the dry ingredients in batches. When the batter starts to get too stiff to mix with a fork, use hands until a ball of dough forms. Add the chocolate chips and walnuts, and mix with your hands again. A bit messy, but worth it.
Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and flatten into disks about 1 ½ inches in diameter. Place about an inch apart on cookie sheets.
