¼ cup cold vegan butter (½ a stick)
½ cup white sugar
½ cup dark brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon molasses
1- 1 ¼ cup white flour
¼ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon vanilla
¼ cup applesauce
½ cup vegan chocolate chips
In an electric mixer with paddle attachment, cream vegan butter and sugars. Add vanilla, molasses, and applesauce to electric mixer, mix until combined.
To mixer bowl, add flour, salt, and baking powder. Make sure everything is well incorporated before folding in chocolate chips.
Chill dough for 10-15 minutes.
In the meantime, preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and grease or line 2 cookie sheets.
Use a mini ice cream scoop or heaping tablespoon to measure out balls of dough. Place balls 2-3 inches apart on sheet pans.
Bake until cookies are golden brown and tops are barely crackled, 15-20 minutes. These cookies harden as they cool, so be careful not to over bake them!
Let cookies cool completely on pans, and store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.
For an absolutely irresistible combo, try these cookies with Simple Chocolate Nice Cream sandwiched between them!
