About Me

Here at Sensei Cooks I write about my adventures in the kitchen and sometimes in the dojo.

I have a love for cooking and want to explore all the possible facets of it. Leave no stone unturned so to speak.

I am Vegan and love all types of vegan cooking.

I love the process of cooking. Being in the moment. Sort of Zen and the Art of Cooking.

Happy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

First let me say that baking is not my strong point. I believe cooking is an art just like the martial arts, it takes years and years of dedicated practice to get good at it. But baking is a mystery. Any tiny little difference in the way it is supposed to be and presto, your pie, cake or cookies turn into compost material. I know it is all science, not a mystery but still it boggles my mind.

That is why I love these vegan chocolate chip cookies. I adapted them from vegweb.com and my family, vegan and non-vegan love them. You almost can’t mess these up. At least I haven’t so far.

I even tried making chocolate-chocolate chip cookies by reducing the all-purpose flour by 1/4 cup and adding 1/4 cup cocoa. These were fantastic as well. You can see some of them in the picture below.

Happy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
adapted from veganweb.com, submitted by Denise

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
dash of cinnamon (1/2 my family likes about 1/2 tsp – hardly what you would call a dash and the other half none)
1 cup vegan chocolate chips (I use compound chips which are a soy product)
1 cup Turbinado sugar (any raw sugar will do)
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp vegetable oil, divided
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup warm water

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients, flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and then add the chocolate chips.
  3. In a medium bowl combine the sugar, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, vanilla and 1/4 cup water.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and combine with a spatula.
  5. If the dough id too dry add the 2 tbsp of oil (in small quantities) until the dough comes together.
  6. Using your hands (or a spoon) make cookie balls and flatten them out on the ungreased baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 7 minutes, flip them over and rotate the sheet 180 degrees and bake for another 6 minutes.
  8. Let the cookies cool and remove to wire rack or plate.
