Zero-Waste Cookies

Here's a recipe for cookies that use only ingredients from our zero-waste marketplace!

 

INGREDIENTS:


DIRECTIONS
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. 2. Whisk together coconut oil and both sugars until combined, 1-2 minutes.
  3. 3. Whisk in vanilla and egg (or substitute). Mix until combined. Make sure to scrap the sides of the bowl throughout.
  4. 4. Meanwhile add flour, baking soda and salt to a medium bowl. Whisk to combine.
  5. 5. Slowly add in the dry ingredients to the wet in two parts.
  6. 6. Fold in chocolate chips.
  7. 7. Portion out 12 cookies and place them on a plate. The dough can be chilled for an hour or two if you prefer a thicker cookie. They can also go straight into the oven and are just a tad thinner if you choose not to chill the dough.
  8. 8. Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  9. 9. Allow cookies to cool for a couple of minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. 10. Store cooled baked cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for 3-5 days or freeze for up to 3-4 months.
  11. 11. Eat, enjoy, save the planet.

NOTE: To make an egg substitute, you can mix 2 tbs of water with 1 tbs of canola oil and 2 tsp of baking powder. This will replace the leavening qualities of an egg. Alternatively, you can mix 1 tbs of chia seeds or ground flax seed with 3 tbs of warm water, and let the mixture sit for 5 minutes. This "flegg" will work well as a binder, but it won't give as much rise as an egg. Still makes a fantastic cookie, but a little less fluffy.
