1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon instant espresso powder (I use "Nescafe" espresso)
3/4 cup margarine
3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 tblsp flax seed (ground) + 1/4 cup water
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (watch that they don't have dairy in them, some do)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- If flax seeds are not already ground, grind in a coffee grinder, or with a mortar and pestle. You can also buy flax seeds pre-ground. Whisk ground flax seeds and water together in a small bowl until a slight jelly is formed.
- In a medium bowl, blend together flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda and espresso powder; set aside. In a small bowl, blend margarine and sugar, then add vanilla, and flax mix blend. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, folding together until combined.
- Scoop 1 tblsp balls of dough on to ungreased baking sheets. Press balls down slightly. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until cookies are slightly crispy around the edges. Let cool, Enjoy!
