Vegan Chocolate Chunk Cookies
¾ cup vegan butter, melted
¾ cup cane sugar
¼ cup light brown sugar
2 flax eggs (2 tbsp flaxseed meal + 5 tbsp water)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup walnuts (optional)
½ cup vegan chocolate chunks
chunky sea salt, for garnish
First, make your flax eggs by combining flaxseed meal and water together; stir, then wait a few minutes, giving the flax time to absorb the water.
Next, combine cane sugar and brown sugar in a bowl, and then pour melted butter over top. Whisk butter and sugar together for one minute consistently.
Add your flax eggs and vanilla extract to the bowl and stir to combine; set bowl aside.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt, then stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients, using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.
Last, add walnuts and chocolate chunks - use more or less as you prefer.
Use a large metal spoon to scoop dough onto a baking sheet. And sprinkle with chunky sea salt.
Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes. You want the edges to be set but the centers to still be soft.
Allow cookies to sit on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before carefully transferring them onto a cooling rack.
