mEatless Monday – Hot Cocoa Cookies (Vegan)

I named these Hot Cocoa cookies because that’s what they smelled like coming out of the oven. And they taste like it too :) Enjoy!

Hot Cocoa Cookies

2014-12-20 17.36.04

 Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2/3 cup (unsweetened) cocoa powder
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (I’m sure any non-dairy milk would work)
  • 2/3 cup non-dairy chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine all dry ingredients (from the flour to the baking powder)
  3. Make a well in the center and add in the wet ingredients (from the maple syrup to the milk)
  4. Mix it all together, then stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Drop tablespoons of the dough onto parchment-lined cookie sheets and bake for about 13 minutes.

Makes about 30 cookies.

I don’t have nutritional info on these yet as this was a new experiment. I’ll come back and update once I enter the recipe at Sparkpeople.com. But just in case you couldn’t already tell, they are absolutely, in no way, healthy ;)

*Note: if your dough is too dry, add more milk. If too wet, add more almond flour. I had to keep adding more of each to get it just right so maybe start with 1/4 cup almond flour and 1/2 cup of the milk.
