Cousin Jennifer's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies (from cousin Jennifer)

(Dreena Burton’s Homestyle)

1 c unbleached all-purpose flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour)

1 t baking powder

½ t baking soda

¼ c unrefined sugar

¼ t sea salt

1/3 c pure maple syrup

¼ t blackstrap molasses

1 t pure vanilla extract

¼ cup canola oil

1/3 cup non-dairy chocolate chips

Directions: Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl, sift in the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Add the sugar and salt, and stir until well combined.

In a separate bowl, combine the maple syrup with the molasses and vanilla, then stir in the oil until well combined.

Add the wet mixture to the dry, along with the chocolate chips and stir through until just well combined (do not over-mix).

Place large spoonfuls of the batter on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and flatten a little.

Bake for 11 minutes, until just golden (if you bake for much longer, they will dry out).

***I like to add chopped walnuts or pecans!
