Vegan Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup 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 (I processed 1 cup certified gf rolled oats into flour with the food processor)
1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour (add 2 tbsp Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour if you want a thicker cookie)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix together the flax egg and set aside. In a large bowl, mix coconut oil and the sugars until creamy. Add the flax egg and vanilla extract. Add remaining ingredients and fold in the chocolate chips. Place dough baking sheet in spoonfuls. Bake for about 10-11 minutes.

We got this recipe from Brian’s sister, but it is originally from the fabulous Oh She Glows blog. Hop over there for more detailed instructions, great photos, and tons of other great recipes! I use coconut oil because I don’t usually have Earth Balance on hand. Vegan recipes are often gluten-free, dairy-free friendly, which is great for us since Brian is GF and I am DF. These cookies are seriously addictive. You can plan to have leftovers but you won’t because the dairy/gluten lovers will devour these cookies too.
