Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1 Tsp baking soda

1 Tsp Salt (maybe just under 1 Tsp)

1 cup Earth Balance soy free, dairy free butter substitute

1/2 cup white granulated sugar (heaping and unlevel)

1/2 cup brown sugar (heaping and unlevel)

1 Tsp  Pure Vanilla Extract

1/4 cup applesauce (no sugar added)

1  pkg 10oz Enjoy Life  dairy-free, nut free semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream your butter substitute and sugars together until well blended, then add the applesauce and vanilla and mix well. Then add in your flour, salt, and baking soda. Once all ingredients are mixed together well… fold in your dairy free chocolate chips.  If you have time wrap up your cookie dough in saran wrap and place in the fridge for few minutes. If not proceed to scooping out even teaspoon size dollups of dough onto a nonstick cookie sheet about an inch or two apart. I use a cookie scoop to ensure mine are similar in size.  Bake in your convection oven for about 9 minutes depending on how soft or how crunchy you prefer them. I like mine slightly crispy around the edges and super soft in the center. If you are at a high altitude you may have to watch them and bake until you like what you see. Once out of the oven let them cool on the sheets themselves for a couple minutes before transfering them to a cooling rack or display plate or platter. I wouldn’t place them in a closed container for at least 30 minutes or they might steam up too much and fall apart…remember there are no eggs in these.

I am a mother of two Allergic kids, one of whom is severely allergic to Dairy, Eggs, Peanuts, tree nuts and shellfish, moderate to Soy and coconut. I have had to learn how to cook a lot from scratch in order to have food in my home that is safe for my family to come in contact with and to eat. I personally don't want anyone to feel left out ever and I especially don't want my children to not be able to enjoy at least some of the same foods just because they are allergic to basic ingredients. So with some good motivation I have taught myself how to cook and bake and I have come up with some great recipes to share with the world. I want to make it easier on other people in similar positions. Hopefully I can help other people to be able to also enjoy foods that previously would have been thought to have been off limits.
