Hey hey hey I’m just over here channeling my inner 1950’s wife with these vegan chocolate chip cookies. I literally had a veggie soup going on the stove (recipe is here) and I had baked fresh chocolate chip cookies all before my husband got home from work. Who am I?
I let Jack help with the baking which was a tad messy but so dang cute. He’s about to be 2 and he loves helping do anything so it was such a treat for him.
It was a rainy cold day in San Diego today so obviously soup and cookies were a necessity. I laugh because I am such a southern Californian, it’s like “Oh shit, it’s raining? I better put on a sweater and bake”... It’s a little sad I know, but we don’t get rainy days very often.
On a MOM note I am getting ready in the next two weeks to potty train Jack and I’ve been reading the book “Oh, Crap Potty Training” by Jamie Glowacki and I LOVE her style and philosophy I highly recommend it.
I am actually super excited about potty training. What a cool experience for Jack to learn and something we get to do together. Being a mom is so rewarding even if your elbow deep in shit. There’s nothing like a smaller version of yourself casually saying, “ I poop” and walking away, it really brings ya down a peg or two lol.
Baking, potty training, and everything in between are memories I love creating with Jack.
Now let’s dive into those cookies
Ok, now I have a glass of Chardonnay, let’s get started, here’s what you need:
- ½ cup coconut oil, make sure it’s solid not liquified
- 1 and ¼ cups brown sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ cup coconut milk from the can
- ¼ cup apple sauce
- 2 ¼ cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 cups chocolate chips (vegan obvi)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Throw some foil down on a baking sheet.
In a medium bowl mix together coconut oil, brown sugar, vanilla extract and stir good. Then add coconut milk and apple sauce and mix until combined and set to the side.
In another bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt and chocolate chips.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and combine.
The batter will be thick so keep working it, once you’re done scoop out a small ball of dough and place on baking sheet. *If you want flatter cookies press the ball in between your hands to flatten the dough.
Bake about 8-10 minutes. My sweet spot was at 8 minutes, some ovens are hotter than others :)
