Chewy Dark Carob Cookies 

Soft, chewy, chocolate, and full of super healthy ingredients!  I think the cobo of the molasss and buckwheat turn these carob cookies into something deep and dark, and this is a very good thing! Enjoy with a glass of almond milk, or use two cookies as to make a peanut butter and banana mini dessert sandwich (not pictured but definitely tested!). ūüėÄ

You need:

3/4 cup black soy beans (you could probably subs black beans)

1/3 large avocado

Carob 1/2 cup

Molasses 3TBs

Walnuts 1/2 cup

Flax 2 tbs

Buckwheat flour  1/4 cup

1 tsp almond extract

2 tsp quinoa milk (or plant milk of choice)

2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp psyllium 
Throw all ingredients in a blender or food processor except for flour and psyllium; place those in a mixing bowl instead. Then pour contents of blender into mixing bowl and complete the mixing. Then scoop onto a baking sheet. 
Bake at 400F x10min and enjoy!

Buttery Vegan Carob Chip Cookies

I don’t usually use much overt fat and honestly don’t know that last time I baked with any kind of shortening, but I was generously gifted some fancy organic vegan shortening that looks exactly like butter! I was wracking my brain for what people use butter for in baking and recalled that most people bake cookies using butter! These turned out delicious, and are perfect for those who like a nice crunch to their cookies. A tasty recipe to share!

You need:

1 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup brown rice flour

1 cup honey flavored agave

2/3 cup vegan shortening (or coconut oil)

1 tbs flax

1.5 T cinnamon

Pinch salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

2/3 cup carob chips

1/2 tsp almond extract 

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, starting first with your sweetener and shortening. If you are mixing by hand, soften your shortening a bit before mixing. Mix untill well incorporated, then add all other ingredients, carob chips last. 

I recommend refrigerating the dough for an hour or so just to make them easier to form into balls, but is not required.

Roll into balls and place on parchment paper, sprinkling with a touch of sea salt on top!

Bake at 350F for about 7 min, let cool and enjoy!

Yields 8 large cookies
