Radical Chocolate Chip, Coconut and Almond Cookies

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour or gluten free flour
  • 1/2 cup raw or organic sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground golden flax seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/3 cup melted virgin coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup plain soymilk
  • 1 teaspoon unsulphered molasses
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips

Method: Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, ground flax seed, baking powder, baking soda and salt with a wire whisk. Add the wet ingredients: the melted coconut oil, soymilk, unsulphered molasses and the almond extract. Stir together until combined. Then add the shredded coconut, sliced almonds and the chocolate chips. Stir until well mixed. Drop by heaped tablespoons onto a large baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are golden. Let cool on a wire rack before eating (this will also help the cookies to set and not crumble).
