You can’t have too many cookies like these around. Polka Dot Cookies have healthier ingredients and a lot of delicious texture inside. I love to throw cookie recipes together. It’s easy to control the ingredients and have a sweet snack in the house within minutes and I didn’t even have to drive to the store. Yes, I love cookie dough too but I still try to go through the whole process and bake them.
1/2 cup vegan butter
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 flax seed meal egg = 1 Tablespoon flax seed meal mixed with 3 Tablespoons water
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup almond milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 oz. chocolate chips
1/2 cups dried cherries
1/2 cup pecans
1/2 cup sunflower seed meats (you can use all pecans if you can not find the sunflower seed meats)
Lightly grease a baking sheet.
Mix the flax seed meal and water together and set aside so that it can gel a bit.
In a large bowl with a hand mixer - cream the vegan butter and both sugars together until it is light and fluffy. It takes about 5 minutes.
Add the flax meal egg mixture to the creamed sugar mixture and mix together.
In another bowl mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt together.
Add this and the almond milk, alternately, to the creamed mixture.
Mix well after each addition.
Stir in the chocolate chips, dried cherries, nuts and seeds.
Place Tablespoon full dollops of dough onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 8-9 minutes.
