Rich, moist and full-flavored, these cookies will be sure to please the chocolate lovers in your life. The ground flax seeds and almond milk add a hint of a nutty flavor and act as a replacement for egg and milk, making these cookies vegan as well.
2 1/2 cups four
1 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup SB Organic Whipped Buttery Spread
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
5 tsp ground flax seeds
1/2 cup almond milk
2 cups chocolate baking chunks
SB Omega Cooking Spray
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Make sure these ingredients are well mixed and there are no large clumps of cocoa powder. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whip the SB Organic Whipped Buttery Spread, sugars and vanilla extract with a fork, until creamy.
In a small bowl combine the ground flax seeds and almond milk. Add this mixture to the bowl containing the creamed butter and sugar. Stir until combined.
Add the wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients in batches, stirring until mostly combined. Fold in the chocolate chunks to finish combining the ingredients.
Spray four baking sheets with SB Omega Cooking Spray. Drop balls of dough approximately 1 1/2 Tbs. in size onto the trays at least 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10 minutes. If you cannot fit all of the baking sheets into your oven at one time, the sheets can be stored in the refrigerator until your oven is free for a second batch. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes on the trays. Then place on a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
