chocolate chip cookies {vegan, gluten-free}

February 27, 2012
There are some staple items you need in life.  Topping the charts are 1.) a foxy black dress and 2.) a dazzling chocolate chip cookie recipe.  Both must be killer.  While I may not be the gal to help you pick a dress, I can direct you toward your new favorite chocolate chip cookies that you'll definitely be making until the day you kick the bucket.  

These cookies redefine 'divine.'  Slightly crispy edges, perfectly soft center, everything you could want in a beloved chocolate chip cookie, except....hold the phone.  They're vegan!  They're gluten-free!  No joke here, ladies and gentleman.  Not only will you not be able to tell that they're missing what most of us are used to in regular cookies, you'll love these more.  
Don't say you weren't warned.  These cookies are more addicting than Twilight, The Hunger Games & street-grade cocaine, intertwined.  

Chocolate Chip Cookies
vegan, gluten-free
7 tbsp Earth Balance + 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup packed brown sugar (I used organic)
1/4 cup organic cane sugar (or use white sugar)
1 flax egg: (1 tbsp ground flax mixed with 3 tbsp water)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 cup gluten-free oat flour
1 cup plus 2 tbsp Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper; Set aside. 
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the flax egg and set aside.
  3. In a stand mixer, beat the Earth Balance and oil until fluffy. Add the sugars and beat for 1-2 minutes until creamy. Beat in the flax egg and vanilla extract.
  4. Beat in the remaining ingredients and fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Using a 1" cookie scoop, drop dough two inches apart on prepared baking sheets.  Bake for about 10-11 minutes until slightly golden along edges. Allow to cool for 5-10 mins. on the baking sheet and then transfer to a cooling rack for another 10 minutes.

These cookies shouldn't look as good as they do. Flax egg? Oat Flour? Earth Balance? They should look terrible, but MAN they look good! Photos are fantastic too

Wow, those sound like some addicting cookies. I have been experimenting a bit with vegan baking lately, so I can't wait to try these!

Take it from me, the divinity of these cookies is no joke. No. Joke.

I used Pamela's 1 & 1/2 cups Pamela's baking mix and omitted the baking
soda. They were the best gf chocolate chip cookies I've ever made/had!

Wow! Those chocolate chip cookies are mouth-watering! I think it looks like the cookies I saw at one of the gluten free friendly restaurants.

These look delicious but I do have a question. The recipe calls for Earth Balance and I've clicked on the link, but it takes me to a website featuring many products. Which of the Earth Balance products is it? I'm assuming the shortening but I don't want to be wrong!
