2 ½ cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup dairy-free soy-free butter, softened (let butter sit out) *To soften butter quickly, place and keep butter in wrapper or container and let sit in water.
1 ½ cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 large free-roam vegetarian-fed eggs
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
A few sprinkles of nutmeg
1 cup of semi-sweet dairy-free chocolate chips
Recipe Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 10 min
Servings: 2- 3 dozen depending on your scoop size
Follow these directions to create gooey goodness that anyone can enjoy.
1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, sea salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
3. In a large mixing bowl, beat softened dairy-free butter, coconut sugar, and vanilla extract until creamy.
(Make sure your butter is soft. If your butter is still cold and hard it can ruin the mix.)
4. Add egg one at a time, beat well after each addition.
5. Gradually add and beat flour mixture in your large mixing bowl.
6. Add chocolate chips and stir well.
7. Using a spoon, scoop small balls of cookie dough onto an unoiled or ungreased baking sheet. (Your mix has butter so cookies should remove from pan easily)
8. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
9. Let cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes, remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Now your cookies are ready. You can serve them immediately or store them in a sealed container. Try with a scoop of dairy-free ice cream or milk. These chocolate chip cookies should last no less than 5 days on the counter or longer in the fridge.
