Vegan Chocolate Fudgy Oatmeal Cookies
Chocolatey Happy Cookies (that just happen to be vegan)
Every health-nut, vegan, vegetarian, etc deserves a wonderful melt-in-your mouth treat for all their hard work not indulging. Here’s that treat!
2 cups quick cooking oats
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
2/3 cup nondairy milk
2/3 cup canola oil
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil (melted)
- Preheat oven to 350. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
- In a medium sized bowl stir together oats, flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
- In a large bowl beat together sugar, flax seeds, and non dairy milk until smooth. Add vanilla and almond extracts and beat until well mixed. Pour in half of the flour mixture, and then put in other half. Just before the mixture is completely combined put in the chocolate chips
For each cookie drop 2 generous tablespoons of dough onto the cookie sheet, leaving about 2 inches of space between each cookie. Bake for 10-12 minutes until cookies are firm and risen (if they don’t become firm…it’s up to you, you can have them in longer), then transfer to wire racks to complete cooling.
