Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe

At Dough, one of the most requested items in our bakery case was the chocolate chip cookies. They were big, crisp around the edges and chewy in the center. And completely irresistible when they were still warm. If I’m totally honest with you, one reason we didn’t have them in the case every single day is that I would eat them every single day. Seriously, I can’t stop myself. Take that as a warning.

This recipe isn’t too far off from most vegan chocolate chip cookie recipes, but there is a secret ingredient that most others don’t have. Well, it’s not going to be secret in a second. That secret ingredient is brown rice syrup. Yes, that’s the magical ingredient that gives them a little extra chewiness. If you don’t have any or it is hard to get where you are, you can substitute corn syrup.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Makes about 4 dozen small cookies

3/4 cup Earth Balance margarine
2/3 cup dark brown sugar
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons brown rice syrup
1 tablespoon cider vinegar or white vinegar
2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flax seed mixed with 1/4 cup warm water)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
3 cups chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line baking sheets with parchment.

2. In a large mixer bowl, cream together the Earth Balance, sugars, brown rice syrup, and vinegar, then beat in the flax eggs. Beat in the vanilla, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir in the flour and chocolate chips.

3. Drop by cookie scoop or spoon onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake the cookies for 12 minutes, until they’re just set; the centers may still look a bit underdone. Remove them from the oven, and cool complete on a rack.

I’ll be posting more recipes from Dough from time to time. Any requests? Just leave it in the comments.

Chocolate chip cookies

You know, if you make the chocolate chip cookie recipe on the bag of chocolate chips and just replace eggs with egg replacer or flax eggs and butter with Earth Balance, they come out awesome. Seriously, it’s as easy as that. I don’t make them often because I will keep shoving them into my face until they are all gone.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Okay, time to try baking with the Earth Balance coconut spread. Chocolate chip cookies are always a good idea. This is just the standard recipe you’ll find on the back of a bag of chips. I substituted the Earth Balance for the butter and flax eggs for the eggs.

The day they were made these were perfect. But the next day they already seemed to start getting stale. Just a little. And that level of staleness stayed that way for a few days then they started getting drier. It may be that with the coconut oil, the fat is just too solid at room temperature and is giving this stale effect. Hitting them for 10 or 15 seconds in the microwave might revive them. I’ll try that today.

 

 

2010 World Wide Vegan Bake Sale

Okay, so Atlanta participated in the World Wide Vegan Bake Sale way back on May 1st and I’m just now posting pictures. Oh well. Cosmo’s Vegan Shoppe organized it and we took over the back of their shop. Who knew so many  people would be willing to leave the comfort of I-285 to venture to Marietta for vegan baked goods? We sold out before the sale was over! Leigh has a better here of everything so I’ll focus on what I made.

Bake Sale Success!

It was nasty, rainy and a little icy but people still came out. Atlanta’s Vegan Bake Sale for Haiti this Saturday raised $1365 for Doctors Without Borders. Holy Crap! A special thanks to Kristin for organizing the whole thing and Criminal Records for not just agreeing to let us do it in front of their store, but letting us take over the back of the store when the weather turned nasty. Those guys rock!

Kristin has a great round-up of participants here. I’d like to also add thanks to Alicia Simpson, author of Vegan Comfort Food, Alison Brown, Lisa Bennett and a guy named David, I think, for bringing out goodies to sell. The hard work of everyone involved enabled us to turn a bit of labor and ingredients into a much larger donation for Haiti.

And now, for some of my crappy pictures!
