  • 1 teaspoon flax seed
  • 1⁄2 cup soymilk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3⁄4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 1⁄2 cups semisweet vegan chocolate chips (obviously, vegan chocolate chips if you want these to be vegan)


1 _ Preheat oven to 350°F.

2 _ Grind flax seeds in a blender until they become a fine powder, then add the soy milk and blend for about 30 seconds more and set aside.

4 _ Cream the sugar and oil in a separate large bowl.

5 _ Add the flax/soy milk mixture and mix well.

6 _ Stir in the vanilla.

7 _ Slowly mix in the dry ingredients (the original recipe does not call for a mixer, but you may want to use yours.).

8 _ Mix in the chocolate chips.

9 _ Roll dough into 1" balls and flatten into disks about 1 1/2" in diameter.

10 _ Place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 1" apart and bake for 10 minutes.

11 _ Let rest on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes, then remove with a spatula to a cooling rack and cool completely.

**For chocolate chocolate chip cherry cookies, replace 1 teaspoon of the vanilla with almond extract, and use 3/4 cup chocolate chips and 3/4 cup chopped cherries.

***For chocolate nut cookies, replace 1 teaspoon of the vanilla with a nut extract (almond, walnut, etc) and replace the chocolate chips with 1 1/2 cups chopped nuts of your choice.
