How to Prepare Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies [Vegan, Gluten Free]
Preheat the oven to 375°F (this higher temperature makes a difference). Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. To a small bowl, whisk together flax seed meal and water. Set aside for 5 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl using a handheld mixer, cream together softened coconut oil, flax egg, coconut sugar, milk, molasses, and vanilla until creamy. Add flours, baking soda and powder, and salt. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, combine mixture until a soft dough forms. Fold in chocolate chunks.
Using a small cookie scoop, evenly portion dough on to the baking sheet. Slightly press down each cookie with the palm of your hands. Bake for 12-15 min. until light golden brown. Let cool for 10 min. before transferring to a wire cooling rack (important!).
