Almond Lover’s Chocolate Chip Cookies


If you read yesterday’s post, Cookie Conundrum, these are the gooey goodies that caused the problem. They’re tasty, however; so I wanted to share the recipe, which is adapted from the Picky Palate blog.

Almond Lover’s Chocolate Chip Cookies


1 cup Earth Balance Natural Buttery Spread

2 Tablespoons ground flax seeds

6 Tablespoons water

3/4 Cup granulated sugar

3/4 Cup brown sugar

3 oz Odense Pure Almond Paste

1 Tablespoon vanilla

2 1/2 Cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

12 oz bag vegan chocolate chips

1 Cup chopped almonds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix the ground flax seeds with the water in a little bowl and set aside. Beat the Earth Balance and sugars until well combined, light and fluffy. Add the almond paste in pieces until well combined (this takes awhile!). Add in flax seeds and vanilla until well combined.

In a large bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips and nuts. Mix until just combined. Scoop onto parchment lined baking sheets with a medium cookie scoop. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until just golden crisp on the outside. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

    It’s hard to beat a good chocolate chip cookies – and these ones in particular look like they’re VERY good too! These might pop up in my kitchen soon – I just need to look back at your last post now to make sure it’s a good idea! 😉

    • Thanks for the link Anna! I’ve never used applesauce in place of an egg, but it’s nice to know that you can do that. I usually use flax seeds to replace eggs, and this works great. I’ll have to give applesauce a try the next time:)
