Sometimes we just need a chocolatey treat! My wife calls chocolate her medicine and since we are out of her medicine I figured I would make my special chewy cocoa cookies.
I had the girls help me make this batch of cookies which you would think would make it easier and quicker, but no…It took twice as long lol. I enjoy cooking with them so I don’t mind plus who wants to get things done in a reasonable amount of time.
Anyway, you will love these cookies and they are so easy to make. You may want to make a double batch because these things disappear so quickly!
Chewy Vegan Cocoa Cookies
2.5 cups flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup non-dairy milk
2/3 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat your oven to 350
In a large mixing bowl combine all of your dry ingredients. Mix until evenly distributed. In a seperate bowl mix together your wet ingredients. pour the wet ingredient mixture into the dry ingredients and mix to combine.
Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Now form 1 tbsp of cookie dough into a ball and flatten into a cookie shape. Continue until the tray is full and then place in your preheated oven. Bake at 350 for 9 minutes. They will still be a little soft when you take them out so place them directly onto a cooling rack.
Do the same to the rest of the cookie dough and dont forget to taste some uncooked, its delicious! Enjoy with your favorite non dairy milk or by themselves!
