Cookie Exchange

Pin It
Every year for the past 3 years, we have had a cookie exchange at work.
I try to come up with a new vegan cookie each time. This time, I was so buisy working on other projects that I neglected working on a a recipe until the night before!
I decided to do a different spin on a chocolate vegan cookie I usually make and raid my spice cabinet for a chai spice cookie.
Here's what I came up with.

Chocolate Almond Cookies

4c unbleached flour
1c cocoa powder

1 1/2c coconut oil

4tbs ground flax seeds
1c almond milk

Cream together remaining ingredients, except almonds
