Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
- ½ cup vegan butter
- ½ cup peanut butter
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- ½ cup almond milk , unsweetened
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 2½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- 1 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
- 1 cup Christmas sprinkles plus extra
Place the butter, peanut butter, and sugars in a mixing bowl and using an electric mixer, mix on medium high speed until light and fluffy, about one minute.
Push the butter mixture to the edges and in the middle combine the ground flax seeds, cornstarch, milk, vinegar, vanilla, and almond extract. Stir to combine. Now, using the mixer, slowly incorporate the flax seed mixture in with the butter mixture. Continue mixing until light and fluffy again.
Push the butter mixture to one side and combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir to combine. Use your mixer to combine the flour mixture with the margarine mixture. Mix to combine.
When the dough is just right, add the chocolate chips and sprinkles and mix some more until the sprinkles are incorporated throughout the dough.
When you're ready to bake the cookies, turn your to 350F.
Use a cookie dough dispenser to drop cookie dough roughly 1½ inches apart on your cookie sheet. Pour some additional sprinkles on a plate and grabbing one ball of cookie dough at a time, dab the top of the cookie dough ball into the plate of sprinkles to give the top a nice coating of sprinkles. Place it back on the cookie pan and gently smash the top of the cookie to ensure that the new sprinkles are embedded in the cookie dough ball. Repeat with each cookie.
Place the prepared pan of cookie dough balls in the oven and bake for 8-9 minutes. These cookies are best when they're slightly undercooked so be careful not to over bake. You'll be rewarded with a dense, rich, moist cookie!
Remove the pan from the oven and allow the cookies to cool slightly before placing on a wire rack to cool completely. Of course you might want to have one (or two) while they're still slightly warm. You'll love them!
Repeat until all the cookies are done. Store in an airtight container.
