Chewy Chocolaty Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup vegan butter
  • 1 1/2 cup organic granulated sugar
  • 2 egg substitutes (instructions below), I use a chia seed egg = 1 egg equals 1 tablespoon chia flour and 3 Tbsp. water so double that for 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Mix the chia eggs and set aside. – A chia egg is actually made with chia seed meal/flour not the bare seed. The way you make meal/flour is by grinding the chia seed in a processor such as one for your coffee beans or a spice grinder. I use mine to strictly grind seeds so that I do not mix flavors. Grind until it is a fine meal. I do about 4 ounces at a time and keep it in a little freezer safe canning jar – in the freezer. When I need a tablespoon or so it is all ready to go.
  • In a bowl add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cream of tartar and salt. Mix together.
  • In a large bowl, add the vegan butter and sugar.
  • Beat with a hand mixer until it is light and fluffy. About 5-10 minutes.
  • Add the chia egg and vanilla. Mix well.
  • Add the dry mixture to the wet mix until just blended.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Chill the dough for about 30 minutes so you can roll them into balls more easily.
  • Take the dough out of the refrigerator and make about 48 balls.
  • Lightly grease a baking sheet (I use coconut oil).
  • Space the cookie balls on a greased baking sheet about 2″ apart.
  • Bake at 350° for 12 to 14 minutes.
  • Let set on the baking sheet for about 3-5 minutes and then remove to a cooling rack.
