Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

My 7 year old and my husband are at Cub Scout evening camp tonight. Which left me at home with a heartbroken 5 year old. We measured, mixed and munched away the blues with these cookies. Modified from

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup softened Earth Balance (or your favorite dairy free margarine)
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 bag Trader Joe's semisweet chocolate chips (dairy free)

1.         Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda.
2.         Beat the Earth Balance, white sugar, and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer until smooth. Beat in eggs until completely incorporated. Add the vanilla. Mix in the flour mixture a little at a time. Fold in the chocolate chips; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Use an awesome cookie scoop to place cookies 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
3.         Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are firm, 9 to 12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Dairy Free Waffles

These waffles were made by my husband while I slept (may have made them taste even better).  He adapted the recipe from this blog. The waffles are crisp on the outside and tender and fluffy inside. So delicious with a little Earth Balance and freshly canned plum jam. 

3 1/2 cup of high fiber white flour
2 tablespoon baking powder
Pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
4 Eggs
3 1/2 cups premium quality Soy or Almond milk
1 cup cooking oil, ideally canola oil

Whisk all ingredients together. Cook on waffle iron. This recipe made 27 waffles in our waffle maker.
