cookie baking season’s begun

the cool breezes flowing through my kitchen these days has made me want to fire up my oven again – cookie baking season has officially begun in the Hungry for Living kitchen!

i found a couple of different versions of this recipe on the net and added the Mel-touch to them to make them allergy-free AND vegan – win, win :0)


COOKIE Ingredients:
1 c. Basic GF Flour mix (the recipe is at the bottom of the post in this link)
3/4 c. dutch processed cocoa powder
1 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
8 T. Earth Balance ‘Buttery Spread’ (they soy and dairy free version), softened
2/3 c. granulated sugar
1/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg (Ener-G Egg Replacer or a flax seed ‘egg’ mixture)
1/2 t. vanilla extract
3/4 c. mini dark chocolate chips

Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in one bowl.
In another bowl (or mixer), cream together the butter and both sugars.
Stir in the ‘egg’ and vanilla.
Slowly mix the flour mixture into the wet mixture, just until it is incorporated.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Separate the dough into two sections and roll them, with waxed paper, into 2 ‘logs’ about 12 inches long. Refrigerate it until firm enough to slice.
Once the dough has firmed (about two hours), preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the logs into 1 inch slices and place 1.5 inches apart on cookie sheets.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until the dough looks just baked (they should be tender, do not over bake).
Remove from oven and place on cooling racks.

2 c. powdered sugar
6 T. Earth Balance ‘Buttery Spread’ (they soy and dairy free version), softened
1/2 c. sunflower seed butter (Trader Joe’s is my favorite brand to use, it tastes just like peanut butter)
2 T. coconut milk

Once the cookies have cooled, cream all of the filling the ingredients together until well mixed.
Spread onto cookies to create sandwiches.

  1. I think the only words to describe how these look is ‘deadly’. I mean that in a good way by the way, I don’t mean to suggest they look poisonous – simply… dangerously bad for you, in a good way.
