Chocolate chip cookies...without an oven...

Those who have been reading know I love my oven.
I use it daily.
It is a trusted friend.
It runs 30 degrees hot.
I have had it's innards replaced already one time.
In the five years that we have been friends, I have never cleaned it, until now.
Yes, I did a dreaded task of cleaning the oven.
Days of preparation, soaking, and other ways to remove five years of baked on crud.
I have had this opportunity due to my oven having a fit and deciding not to work, thus I have been using it's upstairs neighbor, the stove top.
Chocolate chip cookies do not do well on the stove top.
Thus, I have decided to revamp the classic chocolate chip cookie to a rawish (not quite if you use melted chocolate, or don't make your own "chocolate" stuff) vegan style...
oh, did I mention I have also decided to truffle it...after all, it is the feast day of St. Valentine.  
My husband always asks me to make him chocolate chip cookie dough (notice...not cookies)
So here is my mad attempt to make his dreams come true.
(note, this is a first attempt at this recipe...
they taste pretty good so far, 
but any helpful suggestions are welcome)

Raw Chocolate Chip Cookies
1c. coconut oil
3/4 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. white sugar
(cream together)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
(mix in)
1/3 c. almond milk (or soy)
1 tsp. vanilla
(stir in)
2.5 c. flour
(stir in)
1c. small pieces of chocolate (mini chips, chopped chocolate etc)
or you could use any other cookie mix in that you like.
or if you decide to truffle it, you may not want to add any at all.

Roll into small balls and place on a cookie sheet in the freezer for about 1 hour. Serve as is...or
Melt a bit of chocolate with a touch of coconut oil.  Dip the balls into the chocolate mix.
Place back in the freezer to help the chocolate set. with your loved ones.
P.S. My dear husband if you see this please be surprised when you come home,
the kids really want to give you a big surprise gift.


  1. How sweet of you! I bet they were yummy.

  2. They look good. Did he love them?
    Just an idea...what about pan frying the cookies on the stove top? Maybe...??

  3. They were nothing short of great!. He loved them, especially the ones that were plain. He's not a big chocolate guy.
