A rich cocoa treat that is moist, delicious and, best of all still packed with nutritional love!
I love what I do! Creating recipes that taste great, while eliminating ingredients that are unhealthy and replacing them with ingredients that offer nutritional benefits all at the same time–a win/win! But I really love when one of these recipes can meet more than one culinary need. Multi-tasking can save a lot of time, especially where a recipe is concerned. I find that the more I make a recipe the easier and simpler it becomes. So if I can make basically the same recipe and produce a different end product – life is good!
A few days ago my son requested chocolate, chocolate chip cookies. I was running short on time. I needed to throw something together quickly, but it still needed to taste bakery quality (don’t want to ruin my rep with my son!) and be healthy. I knew that the Cocoa Cakes in my Dulce de Leche Cakes recipe are a quick prep, taste great, and of course are not unhealthy. So in just 20 minutes (start to finish) I whipped up a batch, threw in some Enjoy Life mini vegan chocolate chips, baked and served those heavenly delights! My son and I were both happy campers. I even received possibly the best compliment that a teenage boy can give, “Mom, these taste just like Mrs. Fields!” PS. I thought they paired very nicely with a hot cup of coffee!!
Check out the recipe and step-by-step photos below.
After you see how easy and delicious the Choco Chip Cocoa Cookies are head on over to the Dulce de Leche Cakes post and whip up some vegan, no cooking required dulce de leche to nestle in between! Enjoy!!
