VEGAN Cherry Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies

I created this recipe many years ago, and it remains one of my favorite cookie recipes. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

VEGAN Cherry Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies


2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup Earth Balance (vegan butter/margarine)
1/2 cup canola oil
3 T. water
1 t. almond extract
1/2 t. cherry extract
1/2 t. chocolate extract*
1 cup vegan chocolate chips
1/8 cup sliced almonds**
1/2 cup dried cherries (chopped in half)

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Prepare a large baking sheet by lining it with either parchment paper or Silpat.

3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.

4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar, Earth Balance, oil, water, almond extract, cherry extract and chocolate extract. (*If you can't find a vegan chocolate extract, you can substitute vanilla extract in equal amount.)

5. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and mix until combined. Add the chocolate chips, almonds and cherries and stir until combined.

6. Scoop by heaping tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet.

7. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a wire cooling rack.


(Makes approx. 30 cookies)

**Sliced vs. Slivered Almonds: Sliced almonds are the really thin sliced pieces. Slivered almonds are chunkier. I like to use sliced in this recipe, as their effect is more subtle.
