READY IN: 35mins
YIELD: 18 cookies




  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Grind flax seeds in a blender until they become a fine powder, then add the soy milk and blend for about 30 seconds more and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, sift together cocoa, flour, baking soda and salt.
  • Cream the sugar and oil in a separate large bowl.
  • Add the flax/soy milk mixture and mix well.
  • Stir in the vanilla.
  • Slowly mix in the dry ingredients (the original recipe does not call for a mixer, but you may want to use yours.).
  • Mix in the chocolate chips.
  • Roll dough into 1" balls and flatten into disks about 1 1/2" in diameter.
  • Place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 1" apart and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Let rest on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes, then remove with a spatula to a cooling rack and cool completely.
  • **For chocolate chocolate chip cherry cookies, replace 1 teaspoon of the vanilla with almond extract, and use 3/4 cup chocolate chips and 3/4 cup chopped cherries.
  • ***For chocolate nut cookies, replace 1 teaspoon of the vanilla with a nut extract (almond, walnut, etc) and replace the chocolate chips with 1 1/2 cups chopped nuts of your choice.
