I am currently snacking on one of these vegan einkorn chocolate chip cookies and am trying to convince myself I don’t need another cookie. These are so delicious! They are very soft and chewy, two qualities I look for in a cookie. I gave Asher a little one and he said ‘Mmmm.’ Then Jordan tried to take a handful. Cookies don’t last very long around our house that’s for sure.
I’ve been baking a lot with einkorn flour lately. I love the way it tastes and works similar to regular wheat flour, only better! Einkorn flour has much more flavor, partly because it’s rich in nutrients! The gluten in einkorn is much different than regular wheat, so if you are sensitive to gluten, this might be the grain for you! It doesn’t leave me feeling bloated and weighed down like other wheat grains do.
I also added coconut sugar to this recipe since it has a lower glycemic index than regular sugar. Meaning, your blood sugar won’t rise and fall as dramatically which typically leaves us feeling tired and in need of more sugar. It’s a vicious cycle!
I love these cookies and I’m positive you will too! Let me know how they turned out for you!
- 1 cup coconut sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup chocolate chips/chunks*
- 1½ cup all purpose einkorn flour
- ½ cup unrefined coconut oil, melted
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ cup milk of choice
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees farenheit
- Grease a baking sheet and set aside
- In a large bowl mix dry ingrediets
- In a separate bowl mix wet ingredients
- Add wet to dry ingredients + chocolate chips and stir to combine (Do not overbeat dough)
- Place dough in fridge for 30m-1 hour to harden oil (recommended)
- Use a spoon to scoop out cookie dough and place cookies at least 1 in apart in ball form on baking sheet
- Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until golden
- Check a few minutes before to not overcook
- Check with a toothpick in the center to make sure it comes out clean
Make sure cookies are in tall ball form before baking.
Refrigeration before baking helps harden oils to prevent over-flattening of cookie.
