Allergy Friendly Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup Earth Balance (picture below)
1/2 cup organice pure cane sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened Coconut milk (I like Trader Joe’s the best)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 1/4 cups Lily flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp Organic Gluten-Free Flaxseed Meal
10 oz Enjoy Life Semi Sweet Chocolate Mini Chips – 10 oz
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Using an electric mixer or sturdy wooden spoon, cream earth balance (or butter or margarine) and sugars until light and fluffy.
Slowly add coconut milk, mix well, then add the vanilla.
Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and stir to blend. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Drop by teaspoon onto buttered or parchment-lined cookie sheets.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. (I did mine exactly 12 minutes)
