  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with non-stick spray.. (To get best results, use parchment paper).
  • Make the flax egg by stirring the ground flax and water together in a small bowl. Set aside to thicken for 5 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl, sift the flour, baking soda and salt together.
  • In another large bowl, using an electric mixer at medium speed, beat together the butter, and sugars until smooth and mixed together well.
  • Add the flax egg, almond milk and vanilla and mix on low speed until mixed in.
  • Gradually add the flour mixture and mix in until just incorporated. Do not keep mixing - do not overmix.
  • Add chocolate chips and mix until incorporated. Dough will be thick.
  • Using a small, medium or large ice cream scoop or heaping tablespoon, drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, 6 to 8 per pan, depending on size you are making.
  • Bake the cookies, 1 sheet at a time, until the bottoms and edges are lightly browned. The cookies will seem soft but don’t worry, they will firm up while they cool. 

  • Small cookies bake 10 minutes
  • Medium to Large cookies bake 13-15 minutes.
  • Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
  • Makes 18 -30 cookies depending on size.


Butter Tips: To avoid flat cookies: Be sure your butter is room temp (not melted or even softened), and try using cold/chilled dough if dough is warm: Just put it in the refrigerator to chill before baking.
Flour Tips: Don't over-mix cookie batter especially after the flour is added and add it gradually.Make sure your baking soda is not expired.
Chocolate Chip Tips: If you're in chocoholic mode, go a full 2 1/4 cups of chocolate chips.
