Pink Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

I hope you guys are as excited about all the pink food I have planned for you this month as I am. There are only a few foods found in nature that produce pink result. As we saw yesterday, beets are one of them. This Pink Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe uses beets again to provide a beautiful pink tint. The roasted beets also gave a certain earthy-sweetness to these cookies that we both really enjoyed.

I made a few changes to the original recipe so that I could use some roasted beets that I had on hand. To make these cookies vegan, be sure to use vegan chocolate chips in them. I used regular mini chocolate chips because that’s what I had on hand.

Like most cookies, I really enjoyed these straight out of the freezer.

Pink Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 10-12 cookies

Ingredients:

3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup shredded raw beets
1 Tbsp canola oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 Tbsp water
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Directions:

Combine all dry ingredients and stir.

In a food processor, pulse the shredded beets for a few second 5 times. Add the oil, vanilla, and water and process again. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the sugar to the food processor and pulse until completely combined. The mixture will be very liquidy.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and the beet mixture. Mix to combine.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 min at 350.

    Oh, I love your tree. It’s the perfect size, and I love the decorations.

    The brownies look great. I love the KAF brownies; I just made them a few weeks ago.
