Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies – Vegan Edition

IMG_20170122_163302_399.jpg

My gluten free chocolate chip cookie recipe has now been altered slightly to create a delicious vegan version.  I barely could tell the difference except for a slight coconut taste, which is a nice change!  I hope you enjoy this recipe too.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp ground flax-seed mixed with 6 tbsp water
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 tbsp gluten-free vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup teff flour
  • 1/2 cup potato starch
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 3/4 cup white rice flour
  • 1/4 cup sweet rice flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp xantham gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups dark chocolate (just make sure there is no milk ingredients as sometimes whey or casein can sneak in)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together ground flax-seed with water.  Place in fridge to set for approximately 15 minutes.  The mixture will become thicker and is a great vegan replacement for eggs in baking.
  3. Mix together flours, xantham gum, baking soda and cinnamon in a large bowl and set aside.
  4. In a mixing bowl, blend melted coconut oil, brown sugar and white sugar.  Add vanilla and flax seed mixture until smooth.  Add in flour mixture and blend thoroughly.
  5. Add chocolate chips
  6. Bake in preheated oven for approximately 8 – 9 minutes
