I taught my first Yoga class last Monday. I was nervous as hell! I'm a yogi, aren't I supposed to be zen and all? In case I was horrible I made Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies. If I wasn't able to find my way to their hearts through my teaching then I would find my way to their hearts through their stomachs! Since then, I have taught 5 more classes and I'm feeling more comfortable. Oh, and the class loved the cookies and my class! SCORE!
Chocolate Chip Cookies - Vegan
Keywords: dessert snack vegan cookie
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 Tbsp. tapioca flour
- 12 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease two large baking sheets.
Combine sugars, oil, almond milk, and tapioca flour in a mixing bowl. Use a strong fork and mix really well, for about 2 minutes, until the mixture resembles smooth caramel (I used my mixer). There is a chemical reaction when sugar and oil collide, so it's important that you don't get lazy about that step. Mix in the vanilla.
Add 1 cup of the flour, the baking soda, and the salt. Mix in the rest of the flour. Fold in the chocolate chips. The dough will be a little stiff so use your hands to really work the chips in (I used my mixer).
For 3-inch cookies, roll the dough into balls about the size of Ping-Pong balls. Flatten them out in your hands to about 2 1/2 inches. As they cook, they will spread just a bit. Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 8 minutes - no more than 9 until they are just a little browned around the edges. Let cool on a baking sheet for about 5 minutes then transfer to wire rack.
