Orange Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Jump to Comments

Oh this recipe is so good! It was inspired by the cookie recipe in Veganomicon that I wanted a little bit healthier. The combination of orange and chocolate go so well together and these cookies are some of my favorites. I double this recipe and keep the dough in the refrigerator sealed in a container and it really lasts a longer than you would think. This way I can make fresh cookies in many small batches and I won’t be tempted to eat more than I should! It is great to have a treat ready to put in the oven at a moments notice if you need something for a party, or a neighborly visit, etc. and this is a good one.

Orange Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 c. all-purpose flour

2/3 c. cocoa powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 c. canola oil

1 1/4 c. sucanat

4 tsp. ground flaxseeds

1/2 c. almond milk (soy would be fine too)

2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

3 tsp. finely grated orange zest

1 tsp. almond extract

1/2 c. chocolate chips

3/4 c. almonds, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, sift together the dry ingredients together: flour, cocoa, soda, salt. In a separate bowl mix together the oil and sucanat. Add in the flaxseed, milk, vanilla, almond, and orange zest, and mix well. Add the wet to the dry and stir until well combined. Add in the chocolate chips and almonds. When the dough gets hard to stir with a spoon, just use your hands to mix thoroughly. You can chill the dough now, or roll 1-inch balls and then flatten slightly onto the prepared pan. Space them at least one inch apart because they will spread some. Bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on if your dough has been chilled or not. Enjoy!
