Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

I remember growing up one of the cookies my mom used to make was Chocolate Crinkle Cookies.  
Well, I decided that I would make them with a bit of a twist.  Yes I converted the recipe to plant-based.   
Do they taste the same?  Yes, and next time I visit back home I will make them for my family and let them judge.

Before Baking You will Need

  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

  • In a medium size bowl, mix together cocoa powder, white sugar, applesauce and vanilla.

Plant Based Egg - let's begin

  • in a small bowl add in baking oil, water and baking powder.  Give it a good wish and your set.

Let's Combine

  •  Whisk the plant-based eggs into the cocoa & apple sauce mixture.
  • Now, slowly mix the wet and dry ingredients together.
  • Cover the dough, and chill for at least 3 hours

Three hours have passed and you're ready to bake.

    Oven 350c

    • On a small plate or bowl place the confectioners' sugar
    • Using a table spoon i scope out the cookie dough and roll it into one inch size balls
    • take the cookie dough balls and roll them in the confectioners' sugar.  Once done place them on a baking sheet (pan).
    • place them in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes.  
    • Once cookies are done, leave them to cool on the baking sheet as they are soft and moving them to a cooling rack just means they will crumble.
