|Title:||Fudgy Chocolate Chip Cookies ****|
|Category:||Cookies - Clean (Only natural/organic ingredients), Vegetarian|
1 T ground flaxseed
3 T water
3/4 c dairy-free butter like Earth Balance
1 c raw sugar or other sweetener
1 t vanilla extract
1 1/4 c whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1/3 c cocoa
1/4 t sea salt
1 c clean dark chocolate chips- or non-dairy
|Directions:||Preheat oven to 350F. Mix flaxseed and water in a bowl with a whisk. Whisk vigorously for 30 seconds to a minute. Set aside and let set up; it will become thick and creamy. (This replaces the egg found in regular cookies.)
In a large bowl, mix butter and sugar until creamy. Add flax mixture and vanilla and mix well. In a separate bowl, blend flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add this mixture to the wet mixture, and mix until everything is well blended. If mixture becomes too dry you can always add a small amount of non-dairy milk or water. Stir in chocolate chips.
Form into 1 inch balls, flattening slightly as you put them onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the tops are no longer gooey.
