A Hint of Life shares her holiday activitiesIt’s January 1st and I cannot believe it. How did this happen? I think 2015 has been the fastest year in my life so far. I think it’s a little sad but my Holiday spirit hasn’t been on point this year. Anyway, we are in Orlando woohoo!! (see my instagram here!) What do you guys do during the Holidays? 

I think baking is a great family activity. I do this with my sister 🙂 Here’s the recipe for this gigantic vegan chocolate chip cookie! A Hint of Life shares her holiday activitiesIngredients

  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (we didn’t use this!)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips (Trader Joe’s chocolate chips are accidentally vegan!)
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cream (aka thoroughly mix) together the coconut oil & brown sugar, then add the almond milk & vanilla. The mixture may be really “liquidy” this is OK.
  3. In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  4. Combine the wet & dry ingredients (it WILL BE crumbly – this is OK), then fold in the chocolate morsels & any other mix-ins of your choosing.
  5. Roll into Tbsp sized balls & place them on an ungreased cookie sheet (or on a sheet of parchment paper on the baking sheet), then flatten them out a bit with your palm. The dough may be a little crumbly, but just smoosh it together and it will work fine!
  6. Bake for 7-10 minutes. (I did 8 which was perfect)

We got this recipe from Daily Rebecca
