Spring came blowing in this year with a sparkling white entrance here in the North East!Snowing the Catskills After digging ourselves out & enjoying the peaceful silence of the glittering scenery I thought, “What’s a nicer treat than chocolate chip cookies by a hot toasty fire?!”.

Classic Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients (makes 2 dozen):

  • 2 1/2 Cups quinoa flakes
  • 1 Cup non-dairy milk (I had hemp on hand)
  • 10 oz vegan chocolate chips (I used allergy-friendly Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips)
  • 1/2 Cup raw vegan sugar
  • 1/4 Cup shortening or non-dairy butter
  • 2 Tablespoons ground flax seed whisked into 1/3 Cup warm water.  Let rest for 5 minutes until it becomes a “gooey” consistency
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except your chocolate and stir to incorporate.  Once your batter is fully mixed, stir in your chocolate chips until combined.cookie batter
