Dark Chocolate Wonder Cookies

Yes I made the name up, they were inspired by the Chocolatey Fudgey Oatmeal Cookies in the book Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar. These had a few differences, I used dark chocolate chunks instead of chocolate chips, cranberries instead of cherries and added the pepitas for a salty sweet combo.

These were so good. I took these to work, and they were gone quick, a few of the ladys even asked for the recipe. So for all those who have tried them and those that haven't here is what you need to make a really fantastic cookie:

2 c. quick oats
1 2/3 c. unbleached flour
2/3 cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 tbs. ground flax seed
2/3 c. non-dairy milk
2/3 c. canola oil
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 c. dark chocolate chunks
1 1/2 c. dried cranberries
1/2c. salted roasted pepitas

In the bowl of a mixer beat together sugar, ground flax seed and non-dairy milk until smooth. Add the oil and the vanilla extract, mix until smooth. Add in the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and mix until a dough is formed. Fold in chocolate chunks pepitas and dried cranberries. Bake cookies 10-12 minutes for large chewy cookies or 8-10 minutes for smaller chewy cookies. I like big cookies. I use a jelly roll pan and usually have 6 cookies on the pan. Makes 16 larger cookies.
