almond sea salt chocolate chunk cookies

There are few things in life that I love more than chocolate chip cookies. These are by far my favorite, the added oats give you a boost of fiber and the dark chocolate sea salt almond chocolate is a game changer – these are a must make on a Sunday afternoon!
When Justin bought me my Kitchen Aide Mixer our deal was I would make him chocolate chip cookies once a week...needless to say I don't make chocolate chip cookies once a week, maybe once a month if he is lucky - making them a little less often makes us appreciate them a little more plus I am still able to fit into my jeans- that is a very good thing .

My all time favorite chocolate brand is Endangered Species- my favorite chocolate bar is the dark chocolate with sea salt and almonds. Not only does this chocolate bar make incredible cookies, it is also pretty killer in a vegan s'more!

I love cookies that come together super quick- the hardest part is waiting for oven timer to ding signaling that the cookies are done, plus the cooling time- the cooling time is torture {I know first world problems}.

Last month I has some cutie patooties over with their Mom (one of my best friends from high school) for a vegan cooking session. We whipped up vegan personal pizzas, coconut chai granola & these cookies. They convinced their skeptical big brother to try one and he said they were awesome- we are doing pretty good if we gain the approval of a 13 year old!

A chocolate chip cookie session wouldn't be complete without a glass of non dairy milk; hemp milk went pretty awesome with these cookies as did a glass of chocolate hazelnut milk.

If you are thinking about it, these are totally acceptable for breakfast.

Some of you may be in the camp of "I must have nuts!" in my cookies; if you are one of those people (not judging!)  and the almonds already in the chocolate just aren't doing it for you, feel free to add a handful of chopped almonds or walnuts to the batter when you add in the chopped chocolate.

What is your favorite cookie; with or without nuts?

Have you ever made a "deal" for a kitchen appliance- if so what kitchen tool and what was the deal!?

Almond Sea Salt Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Makes 16 cookies

you will need:
½ cup vegan buttery stick such as earth balance
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Vegan egg substitute equivalent to 1 egg
1 cup white AP flour
1/2 cup instant oats
1/2 tsp baking powered & half tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup roughly chopped dark chocolate or vegan chocolate chips

assembly:
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F*

Cream together butter and both sugars until light & fluffy. Add in vanilla & vegan egg & mix well,
scrapping down sides if needed..

 Add remaining ingredients minus the chopped chocolate and mix until
flours are integrated into the sugar mix. Slowly stir or fold in the chocolate chips/chunks.. 

On a parchment lined baking sheet, place dough a tablespoon at a time on the sheet about an inch apart- 2
baking sheets may be needed. 

Bake in pre heated oven for 13-16 minutes until edges are golden and
crispy. Remove from oven and allow to cool on the pan for at least 5 minutes prior to serving.

Enjoy!
Yum

  1. These look so so perfect! I love your 'deal' with the mixer, once you have it, it's not like he's going to take it away, right?! He still gets cookies regardless! : )

  2. these look wonderful, lady! i must admit, dayv and i aren't into nuts in our cookies. i think my one exception is peanuts because they just make everything better. plus, their texture is more buttery than crunchy.

  4. These cookies sound fantastic, especially with a tall glass of milk! Or a cup of tea. Or coffee. Or -- just cookies. :) Yay!

  6. These cookies look perfect! I don't use my mixer as often as I could, mostly because I tend to make small batches of things when I bake, and just mix by hand. I need to use my ice cream maker again soon too!
