Whole Wheat Avocado CC Cookies
I made these for a party, a dress opening party! I met this wonderful girl Tanvi at a craft fair earlier this year and low and behold it turns out her day job is working in the same department as John! Such a small world. Well I fell in love with her dresses (all hand made) and bought one up quick.
THEN I find out she's going to be selling them in a local shop here in Rochester called Thread. AND she was having an opening for her line!! A quick convo later and we had it set up that I'd bring some goodies to the opening (and get to leave some ::steph chows:: cards behind) These bad boys got eaten up so fast! LOVE! I was so excited everyone liked them.
Oh right we're talking about cookies here... full disclosure the recipe below is vegan, my cookies pictured are not since I used real butter, and semi sweet chocolate chips since that's what I had on hand. Either way you make them, delicious!
Chewy & Gooey Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
recipe by Sweet Road
1 3/4 c flour (I used whole wheat and they came out great!)
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt (I used less salt)
1/4 c Earth Balance
1/4 - 1/3 c mashed avocado (no chunks)
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
1 tbsp flax seed mixed with 2 tbsp water
2 tsp vanilla
LOTS of roughly chopped dark chocolate (read the ingredients to determine whether it is vegan or not)
-Combine the first 4 ingredients in a bowl
-In a separate bowl combine the Earth Balance and avocado to make a smooth buttery mixture, then add the sugars, flax seed mixture, and vanilla to combine until the ingredients are well incorporated
-Add the dry ingredients and mix well
-Add the chocolate chips and mix, then refrigerate the cookie dough overnight
Preheat the oven to 350º F
-Scoop the cookie dough and place evenly on a baking sheet, flattening them slightly with your hand
-Bake for 10-15 minutes (more or less) depending on your desired consistency - if you bake them too long, they only stay chewy for a bit before becoming crunchy
