When times get tough, all you need is a chocolate chip cookie to ease (some of) the pain. Chocolate chip cookies are no therapist but they do help! These cookies from Namely Marly rocked our socks right off. They put a smile on our faces and they weren't hard on the eyes either ;)
Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies... Vegan!
Recipe by Namely Marly
2 cups vegan butter
2 cups Zulka morena pure cane sugar
2 cups brown sugar, packed
4 tablespoons ground flax seed
4 tablespoons corn starch
2/3 cup water
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 cups flour
5 cups blended oatmeal (Pour 5 cups oatmeal into a blender and blend to a fine powder)
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 bags of chocolate chips in various sizes or percentages of chocolate
Heat your oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, cream together the vegan butter and sugars, until light and fluffy.
Add the flax seed meal, corn starch, water and vanilla, and stir some more. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, oatmeal, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir together to combine all the ingredients. Set aside.
Pour the flour mixture into the butter mixture and stir well.
Then add the chocolate chips and nuts and stir some more.
Use a scooper to dispense cookie dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Place the dough about 2″ apart to allow for some spread! Bake each batch for 10 – 12 minutes. Makes about 9 dozen cookies.
