- 2 ¼ c all-purpose flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 c vegan buttersticks, softened
- ¾ c sugar
- ¾ c brown sugar
- 2 chia eggs (2 T ground chia seeds + 6 T water)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 c semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 c dried dates, chopped
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Combine ground chia seeds with water and let sit 5-10 minutes, until thickened.
In a bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a second larger bowl, mash the butter, sugar and brown sugar together until the butter has soaked up the sugar.
Mix the chia eggs and vanilla into the butter/sugar until the mixture is smooth.
Little by little, add the flour mixture to the butter mixture until everything is mixed together. The batter should be gooey.
Stir in chips and dates.
Drop round teaspoonfuls of batter onto ungreased cookie sheets. The cookies will flatten and spread out as they bake. You should have enough for about 80 cookies.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Let them cool, and then enjoy!
