Talking About Specialty Foods

Hello, my name is Roger. Welcome to my website about specialty foods. When I was a young kid, I ate anything and everything without question. I loved all food and did not think that would ever change. Unfortunately, I started experiencing painful allergic reactions after eating certain ingredients. After going to the doctor, I learned I would need to be much more careful about the foods I eat each day. I started looking into specialty foods made without those offending ingredients and it instantly helped. I want to use this site to help other people find and enjoy specialty foods. Thanks.

Two Cookie Recipes To Make With Vegan Chocolate

If you're vegan, or if you follow a plant-based diet, then you're probably pleased that vegan chocolate is so easy to find. Many brands make vegan chocolate. Some mainstream chocolates just happen to be vegan, too! Of course, you can just enjoy this chocolate on its own, but making cookies with it is also a delicious option. Here are two vegan recipes you can use to make vegan chocolate cookies.

Classic Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn't love a classic chocolate chip cookie? This version is made without eggs or butter, but with plenty of vegan chocolate chips. To make about 2 dozen cookies, you'll need:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
  • 10 ounces vegan chocolate chip

Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Mix well. In a separate bowl, combine the coconut oil, both sugars, vanilla, and almond milk. Mix well. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Then, stir in the chocolate chips. Drop the cookie dough onto baking sheets by the tablespoon. Spread them out by several inches.

Bake your cookies for about 10 - 12 minutes at 350 degrees F. Cool slightly before removing the cookies to wire racks to finish cooling. Enjoy!

Double Chocolate and Nut Cookies

These cookies have chocolate dough and chocolate chips embedded within them! Plus, you get to add your favorite nuts. To make about 2 dozen cookies, you need:

  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup almond or oat milk
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts of your choice

Cream the coconut oil and sugar in a large bowl. Add the almond milk, and continue mixing until the mixture is uniform. Then, add the dry ingredients, except for the nuts and chocolate chips. Stir slowly to incorporate the dry ingredients, forming a stiff dough. Then, stir in your nuts and chocolate chips.

Spoon the cookie dough onto ungreased baking sheets, one tablespoon at a time. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes at 350 degrees F. Transfer to a wire rack to cool, and enjoy!

Once you make these vegan chocolate cookies once, you can bet you'll keep making them!
