Servings 24 cookies
- 2 tbsp ground chia seeds + 6 tbsp water or one regular egg
- 1 1/2 cups quick oats
- 3/4 cups plus 2 tbsp whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup vegan or regular butter softened
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips dairy free, if desired
- 3 tbsp crushed chopped candy canes
Preheat oven to 350F and line two baking sheets with a silpat or parchment paper.
Mix together the chia and water and place in the fridge for one hour. Omit if you do not want to make this vegan and simply use a regular egg.
In a bowl, mix together the oats, flour, baking powder, cocoa, cinnamon and salt.
To another bowl, cream together the butter with brown sugar using electric beaters until fluffy. Add in the vanilla and peppermint, along with the chia egg or regular egg.
Add the wet to the dry, and fold in the chocolate chips.
Roll into one tablespoon balls, flatten slightly on a baking sheet with an inch between them and sprinkle with crushed candy canes.
Bake for 12 minutes. Allow to cool before transferring to a cooling rack. Enjoy!
