I am not a baker but I enjoy baking gluten free and dairy free desserts for my family. I do it for fun and I love watching my kids turn into cookie monsters:)
Vegan Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Sea Salt Cookies prep 10 mins cook 10 mins inactive 15 mins total 35 mins yield 10 cookies Ingredients
1/2 cup coconut oil, solid
1 and 1/4 cups coconut sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup oat milk (feel free to use thick coconut milk, if you prefer)
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 and 1/4 cups gluten free oat flour (you can also use a gluten free flour mix; do not to pack your flour)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 and 1/4 cups chocolate chips (I used a vegan chocolate bar instead), divided
Flaky sea salt, optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
In a large bowl whisk together the coconut oil, coconut sugar, and vanilla, beating until well combined. Add in the oat milk and applesauce and whisk until well combined; set aside. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; whisk well to combine.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet mixture and, using a wooden spoon or very sturdy spatula, stir until ingredients are combined. The batter will be very thick! Fold in 1 cup of the chocolate chips.
Scoop three tablespoon sized mounds of dough onto the prepared cookie sheet, leaving a few inches between each cookies for spreading. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes, or until the edges are golden and the centers have set. Press remaining chocolate chips on top of warm cookies, and sprinkle with sea salt, if using. Cool cookies on the baking sheet for 15 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
