Vegan Choice Chocolate Chip Cookies
Health Highlights


1/3 cup Ghee (alternative: unrefined coconut oil)
3/4 cup Applesauce, unsweetened
1/4 cup Maple syrup, pure
0 ml Stevia sweetener, liquid ((or 5 drops) extract)
1 dash Celtic sea salt (a pinch)
2 tsp Vanilla extract, pure
1/2 cup Rice flour, brown
1/2 cup Buckwheat flour
1/2 cup Quinoa flour
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/2 cup Dark chocolate chips, vegan (Enjoy Life brand is a great organic choice)
1/2 cup Nuts, pecans, dry roasted (halved, chopped)
1/2 cup Frozen blueberries (organic)


  • Preheat oven to 300*F
  • Grease a large cookie sheet with coconut butter or use parchment paper
  • Soften the ghee/coconut oil in a frying pan at medium heat
  • Add the apple sauce, maple syrup, stevia extract, vanilla extract, and salt
  • Cream together with a wooden spoon until smooth
  • Grind the buckwheat flour yourself in a coffee grinder or blender. Do not use store-bought buckwheat flour because it's too fine and produces a "muddy" texture
  • Measure all 3 flour types into a large mixing bowl and mix thoroughly with the baking soda
  • Add chocolate chips and chopped pecans into the flour
  • Add the wet to dry ingredients and mix quickly with broad strokes
  • Stir in the frozen blueberries with a few quick and gentle strokes, trying not to release the colour into the dough or else your cookies will turn blue! Unless you want that ;)
  • Place tablespoonfuls of the dough onto the cookie sheet and mold the shapes with your fingers or with a spoon
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tops and bottoms are slightly browned 
  • Let cool on the sheet until firm, and transfer onto a cooling rack
  • Enjoy!
