Vegan Chocolate Cookies

Healthy Vegan Cookies

My teenager recently became vegan.  While the rest of our home remains omnivores (with a love for meat), I still make sure she’s able to enjoy dessert and special treats as much as possible.  My husband called me the other night while I was at a meeting at the kids’ school and asked what, if anything, was for dessert?  I had pudding ready to go for the boys, but was stumped at what to offer our little vegan.  I joked with my husband, “Name a dessert without dairy?  I dare you!”.  It is tougher than you think!  With a bit of playing around, I came up with this recipe using substitutes for the dairy, sugar and eggs in most cookie recipes.

1 avocado, peeled and mashed well

1/2- 1 cup agave nectar (or honey) depending on taste and how sweet you want these

1 tsp baking soda mixed with 1 tbsp of white vinegar  (this is an egg substitute)

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1/2 cup (or MORE!) vegan chocolate chips

1/2 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix mashed avocado, agave nectar (these won’t be very sweet unless you add the full cup and even then they are still semi-sweet) and egg substitute (1 tsp baking soda and 1 tbsp vinegar).

Add cocoa powder and baking soda.

Lastly, add those chocolate chips.

Spoon dough onto parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes.
