Ingredients

  • 3/4 + 1/4 cup granulated sugar divided
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips melted
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup oat milk or other mild-flavored plant milk, such as unsweetened almond
  • 2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons black cocoa powder also known as black onyx cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar sifted

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, or with a heavy-duty hand mixer, mix together 3/4 cup granulated sugar, melted chocolate, oil, oat milk, corn syrup, flaxseed, and vanilla extract.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Gradually mix in just until a thick dough comes together.
  • Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes, until chilled throughout. Meanwhile, pour the remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar into a small bowl and set it aside. Sift the confectioners' sugar into a separate small bowl and set it aside.
  • For each cookie, scoop a heaping tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball. Roll the ball first in the granulated sugar then roll in the confectioners' sugar. Set on a cookie sheet at least 2 inches apart.
  • Bake 14 minutes, until cookies are puffed and cracks are visible. Let cookies stand on the baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to wire racks until cooled completely.
