Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

February 14, 2011

Happy Valentine’s Day!

That’s right, it’s V-day again – cue the flowers, cheesy cards and Hershey’s kisses. Aside from the traditional bought gifts, I think that nothing screams ‘I Love You!’ more than a homemade (and heart-shaped!) chocolaty treat… why not bake some of these for your darling?

Adapted from How Sweet It Is

Ingredients:

2 T sunflower/canola/coconut oil

2T non dairy milk (I used soy)

1/2 cup raw sugar

1/2 T ground flax mixed with 2.5 T water, allowed to thicken

1/2 t vanilla

3/4 C all purpose or whole wheat flour

1/2 t baking soda

pinch salt

2.5 T cocoa powder

1/2 t red food coloring (optional, but if omitted the cookies will be paler than pictured)

1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 375F/190C.
  2. Mix oil, milk, sugar, flax+water, vanilla and red food coloring until very well combined in a large bowl.
  3. Sift in cocoa and baking soda and add flour and salt. Mix until combined, the fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Shape cookies into discs and/or hearts (cookie cutter recommended!).
  5. Bake on a lined cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes or until cookies spring back when touched lightly.
  6. Cool on a wire rack.

I was expecting these to turn out like red velvet cookies, especially with the mix being this red at one point:

But things never quite go to plan, and they ended up a rich chocolaty color….

Whatever color, I’ll accept gifts of chocolate any day!
