a new spin

So these are very similar to another one of my (favorite) cookies, but a bit of a different recipe than the original and slightly different flavor. Just more ideas to play around with…

Chocolate Orange Coconut Cookies (24-36, depending on size)

1/3 cup soymilk

2 Tbsp ground flaxseed

1/2 cup canola oil

1 1/4 cup sucanat

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp orange extract

1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp cocoa powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

3/4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut

(1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment. (2) Beat together soymilk, flaxseeds, oil, sugar, and extracts. (3) Mix in flour, cocoa, baking soda and powder and salt, and stir until combined. (4) Fold in chocolate chips and coconut. (5) Drop rounded spoonfuls onto a baking sheet and bake for ~10 minutes. They will spread a little, so make sure you have space between them. (6) Let cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack.
