Vegan Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

December 15, 2022
Last week I went to a holiday party and I made boxes of mixed cookies to bring for everyone. I wanted to mix up the flavors and include something chocolate, so I made sure to bake some chocolate crinkle cookies. These cookies are perfect for December, with the confectioners sugar on the outside looking like fresh fallen snow. These are so soft and chewy and taste almost like mini brownie bites.

These would be fun to make with a group of friends, or to bring and share at a get together. The recipe can easily be doubled if you want to make enough cookies to share and still have some left for yourself to enjoy. I recommended rolling the dough balls really well in the confectioners sugar until they are thoroughly coated, for the best crinkle effect. A few drops of peppermint oil would also go really well in these cookies.

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. I put 6 cookies on each sheet.

2. In a small bowl, prepare your egg replacement by whisking with the water and set aside.

3. In a large mixing bowl, add the sugar and oil and mix until smooth. Add in the egg replacement, vanilla extract, and almond milk and mix well.

4. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.

5. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir until combined and a dough ball forms.

6. Make dough balls about 1 inch in size and roll between your hands. Drop into a bowl of confectioners sugar to coat thoroughly. Place on baking sheet. Repeat until dough is gone.

7. Place cookies in oven to bake for 12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on a cooling rack.
