Chocolate, Chocolate-Chip Espresso Cookies

These are fantastic! I coin them as an 'adult' cookie because of the addition of espresso, which tastes absolutely amazing with chocolate (and gives you that secret energy boost as well). Serve these when you are trying to impress your friends with your vegan baking talents!

Ingredients (makes 15 cookies):
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)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. 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.  
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
